I bought this car back in Apr of 02 and
it seemed like a good deal for the
price. Everything worked great at first
but then I started having some
problems. First I had to replace the
water pump in Jun-02, then a few months
later I had to replace the radiator
because the original one leaked in
about 4 different places. For about the
next 7 months I had no problems so I
was thinking that everything would be
ok, but then in Apr-03 one of the
radiator fans went out. About 3 months
later the AC stopped working because of
a leak in one of the hoses. The AC
worked for about month and now it has
stopped working again. There is leak
somewhere else in the AC system.
They should build these cars more
reliable. I would never buy another
Hyundai and would advise anyone out
there not to buy one.
