I purchased the car new, when they were just introduced. My third Hyundai, and it is the best car I ever driven. Ive driven a lot of other brands, and none provided the same bang for the buck my Shark does. Very reliable and sporty, not to mention thrifty. I got over 40 mpg on a trip to Upstate NY from SE Virginia one time with the CC set on 65 mph.
Styling, smoothest shifter I ever had (I only drive sticks). Reliability, only 2 things failed in 157,000 miles. The crankshaft position sensor (@ 57k) and the alternator (@ 140k). Think Ford is good, try again, My F150 is always Found On Road Dead, yet my Shark always plays parts getter for F150
