First let me say that Hyundai sticks with you all the way with their 100,000 mile power train warranty. They fixed the differential in my car at 95,000 miles free of charge! I never incurred any major repairs other than worn parts. And it's been a gas to drive. Steering is very responsive and the standard drive provided excellent gitty-up especially in the mid ranges over 40mph. I would buy it again but the exterior of the 2009 model is just plain looking and they discontinued the hatchback.
6-speaker AM/FM/CD player, leather seats, quick off the start as well as power with manual in the mid ranges. Hatchback shape similar to that of Saab, which many of my friend quickly mistook for.
Slight noise factor but with the superber sound of the stereo (with tweeters in the door), I hardly noticed it.
