ReviewBEWARE!!! Clutch failed at 41,000 miles, 3 years of normal use. No towing of anything. Dealer where purchased out of business, new dealer not at all helpful. Charge was $160 to eyeball, another $500 if I wanted parts removed for inspection. Cannot buy aftermarket parts. Replacement parts $1,000, throw in another $1500 if new flywheel is needed. Cannot be resurfaced, dual mass. This dealer sees no problem with a $2,500 to $4,000 charge for fix. I DO!! If thinking about stick shift of any newer Hyundai vehicle in your "FUTURE" especially if in the East Bay of northern California, best to think again.
Best FeaturesRoom for 2 car seats and paraphernalia of young children in cargo area. Seats far enough apart so that no cat fighting with "claws bared" (hands) possible.
Worst FeaturesHyundai must tell potential buyers of manual transmission vehicles what the replacement charges will be for clutch failure, before even a test drive. Install only heavy duty clutch parts.
