This is the second time I have hyundai, and basically they are worth its value, specially this one. still there are some flaws like in every car. I liked it. it's not a powerful car, it's more like for a smooth ride, going to the shopping center, or somewhere where you will not be in a rush. it does has space in there, I fitted a lot of things by just pulling the back seat down. the lights are good looking. my point is that the car is worth the money I spent.
gas mileage, front seat space and the the front part of the car.
well... I like the new one the 2000 one, so until I try that one... maybe then I will have some suggestions.
This car only lasted me a year. I bought this car for $2,500 on a payment plan and on my last payment the transmission went out. It went forwards but not backwards. I wasted money. When I go to car menchanics they tell me it's not worth fixing because the parts are too expensive and hard to find. I got oil changes and tuneups regurlary and it still broke down on me. It's hard to try and trade this car in because the dealerships want to only give you a couples of hundred dollars for this piece of garbage.
the size of the car was alright...i guess.
everything needs to be improved. After 95,000 miles this car is non-reliable.
Bought it new, runs great, never a breakdown. Still gets 30+ MPG and has no mechanical problems. The manual trasmission is great, only wish it was synchronized, sometimes hard to get into reverse. Love the rack and pinnion steering as I have a great feel for the road conditions and traction that way. A Hyundai customer for life now.
Unpowered rack and pinion steering and manual transmisson.
Great Car - yes it had minor problems with cheap pieces of plastic breaking on the cup holders, etc. As long as you keep the oil changed and maintain the car it will treat you well. At 120K miles the transmission went out. For a couple years I lived in the foothills of the Appalachian Mountains - I think it was too much strain on the car.
Reliable. Good gas mileage.
More Power. Some parts made of cheap plastic. Oil, air, gas filters etc. were not standard size and typically could only be found at auto parts stores and not at big box general stores (i.e. Walmart).
