Vehicle2014 Hyundai Veloster Turbo 3dr Hatchback w/Black Interior (1.6L 4cyl Turbo 6A)
ReviewThe Veloster Turbo is a fun fuel efficient car to drive. With horsepower of 201 it passes like a car with a V8. The cornering and handling seem to be from a much more expensive car. Hyundai did a great job on the exterior design, While shopping I was looking at 2 door coupes like the KIA Forte, Hyundai Elantra and Honda coupes.
I saw my first Veloster in the lot after test driving the Elantra Coupe and ask the salesman what it was. I noticed that a couple had turbo badges on them and said why not take it for a test drive, who knows. Needless to say this was the car for me.I can see the Veloster becoming a cult classic of the fast and furious types.
Best FeaturesTurbo, AV system, Backup camera, Handling.
Worst FeaturesBlind spot mirror on passenger side view like drivers side.

My first Veloster was a 2013,i was rear-ended and the car was totaled. I loved the car so I bought a 2014 Tubo. I think for the money it's a great car. For the 1st 3500 mi I was averaging 33-34 mpg. then starting mid-Nov. the mpg started to gradually go down to 31 to 29 now i get only 25 mpg max using eco. I have tried an addative to clean the injectors, tank full of premium then medium fuel. No change. I went to my dealer to have them check out the problem.They're response was that they did not have a way to check the engine for mpg problem...which i can't believe. The only way they could check, was for me to leave the car with them for a week so they could drive it. No way. The service mgr asked if I had checked the mpg manually...I told him no because the car is equiped with a computer to tracks the mpg;that is what I have used sinse the 1st day on both the 2013 & 2014. He said i needed to do it manually so the I could gain ammunition. Ammuniton for what; he wouldn't answer. I can only assume for when the region tech is called in. Anyway this is what i was told to do. 1st when i fill up stop when the nozzel clicks the 1st time. The kicker was then i am supposed to try & use the same pump & keep track of the mpg manually. I couldn't believe my ears. I didn't remember them giving me that advice when i purchased the car. I have been driving & buying cars for over 50yrs.and i have never heard such B.S. Well I have done exactly what they told me to for two fill ups and the ave mpg is 24.3 & 24.5 mpg. I'm going to do it one more time and bring it back to see what their new asignment will be for me. I would be interested in hearing if anyone has had the same problem & was there a solution. Thanks Hiredhand2Report it
