I needed a car that was not too pretentious, and wanted a car that felt pretentious. This one solved both items. It's a fun car to drive and I feel very safe in it. It doesn't like to go just 35 mph and loves to travel on the open highway. It comes well equipped and the fit and finish is very good. I've had to have several minor things fixed under warranty, but that was another major selling point of the Hyundai. The warranty is the best in the industry, and I've had great service from the dealership.
