I have heard quite a lot of people pronounce Seat (Spanish VW-owned car

I did not recognise the French car name the first time I encountered it
in Scotland.


I believe Hyundai is supposed to be hee-un-dee.

And Toyota did not use the name MR2 in French-speaking markets :-) .

Why isn't the W in Daewoo usually pronounced?

Never heard it pronounced that way.

And why begin it with D when Koreans pronounce it starting T?

What basis do you have for saying that ?
