I and my husbend bought this car before our baby was born. I love the space and the back seats lay down wich comes in hady when your use to haveing a truck. It handles gr8. I would sugest this car to every one. buy the way when I bought the car it had 161,000 miles on it.
We bought this car from a neighbor.
Originally, the car had been owned by
a mechanic (which was the reason I
decided to buy). I have owned the car
for over a year, I have only needed to
replace the alternator. The car had
119,000 on it when we bought it and
made it through a trip from New York
to Florida and still runs great. I am
glad to have as a 2nd car.
I fell in love with the car, at first
sight, but it turns into a nightmare
at soon I started driving. The engine
get damaged immediately, it was fixed
by the dealer and at soon the
guarantee was over the engine went
down again, I fixed and never get in
to a good conditions, finally the
clutch get damaged and it cost more
than the car to fix it. I am without
transportation and I have a car to
keep making payments.
None-this car is a big piece of junk
I suggest that Hyuandai stop making
cars and make something that has no
mechanical features, like pieces of
metal or bricks.
I brought this car from a dealer in
2002. It had 61000 miles at that time
and I payed $2,200. I one year i added
25,000 miles and the car still runs
and looks the same. But the engine is
loud now and i had to replace many
tires and parts (horn, winshield pomp
motor, brakes, axel, bearings). I
alwais use Valvoline MaxLife engine
oil. So it's up to you to decide, but
even if i love my car, my next choice
would not be a Hyundai. It's not
reliable enaugh. Maybe 2003-2004
models are OK, but I don't wanna take
with manual transmition, the car
responds ok to your road/fun needs. i
don't recomand any automatic elantra.
