I have 38K miles on the car...my lease ends in May 13. Overall, it has been a good car, although a bit on the boring side. Reliability has been excellent. I had to bring the car in for a recall early on during ownership, but it was a quick and painless process and Hyundai provided me with a $25 Visa gift card as an apology for the inconvenience of bringing the car in. The initial sales experience and all subsequent servicing at multiple Hyundai dealers have been outstanding. Hyundai seems to go out of its way to be friendly and efficient. Only issues are some cheap, hard plastic on the interior which squeak often over rough roads and the poor steering which is always off-center.
Modern interior design that is well laid out and easy to use. The exterior design is still fresh, 2 years later, and looks better than most car on the road...even most luxury cars. Good gas mileage (avg 31-32 MPG most of the time). Roomy interior, back seat, and trunk. iPod connectivity via USB and Bluetooth are standard (wasn't the case on most competitor's vehicles when I bought this in early 2010). The car has a beautiful paint job on it. Car was less expensive than similarly optioned competitors.
Steering feel needs huge improvement. The hard plastics in the interior need to go. The black-on-blue theme of the radio display can be very difficult to read in certain lighting conditions. The Homelink mirror buttons are not illuminated, making it tough to push the correct one at night. Road noise can still be reduced a bit.
