Review of the 2002 Hyundai XG350

  • If you'd like to break away from the mainstream and save a couple of bucks doing it, the XG350 is worth a look. However, the mainstream is the mainstream for a reason...

  • Safety
  • Pros

    Lots of standard equipment, decent power, roomy cabin.

  • Cons

    Funky home-market styling, low expected resale value.

  • What's New for 2002

    The XG300 becomes the XG350, as engine displacement is bumped up 0.5 liters to 3.5. Although horsepower is only increased by 2 to 194, 39 more pound-feet is on tap for a grand total of 217, which should provide quicker acceleration.

Lot of car, lo money

by on
Vehicle: 2002 Hyundai XG350 L 4dr Sedan (3.5L 6cyl 5A)

Bought used at 40k mi. Engine lunched at 115k. If you buy or own, change the darn timing belt @ 70k. Belt is made of pressed fiber of some sort. The Korean v6, unlike American v6, is an interference engine - meaning if the timing belt goes, the pistons and valve beat the engine to death - unlike a non-interference engine. We run Mobil one synthetic from day one. We have two American cars - both v6 - one at 180k the other at 225k. Never changed the timing belt. Both run. The xg350 had a rattle in the driver side trunk. It cruised smoothly and easy on long trips but about as much fun to drive as an Abrams tank. Do not recommend and will never buy another Hyundai. Your mileage may vary

I have only owned this car for almost two years now and have put 20,000 miles on it and it is ready to turn 200,000 miles and still drives like brand new and is extremely powerful and fast!!

I love my xg350

Vehicle: 2002 Hyundai XG350 L 4dr Sedan (3.5L 6cyl 5A)

Even though my car is now 7 years old - i still have people asking me about it. Most are surprised it is as old as it as and a Hyundai. I like the classiness of only 1 area on the car that tells what it is .I don't know about fuel economy. I believe if you can't afford fuel you shouldn't be driving the car. Biggest expense has been tires - I'm hard on tires on any car. I have aftermarket wheels and low profile tires - Car looks great. Should be worth more in secondary market but Hyundai still hasn't recovered there & should have . My friends with other imports do/did not have the same reliability, low maintenance costs .I'd buy another .

No regrets

Vehicle: 2002 Hyundai XG350 L 4dr Sedan (3.5L 6cyl 5A)

Recently moved to Florida and needed a car right away. I loved the look of this car at a used dealership. 6 Years old and it ran soooo smooth, I named it "Denzel". It just needs it reagular oil change, i've replaced all belts and, with just one previos owner. So far its been worth its purchase price.

Best buy ever!

Vehicle: 2002 Hyundai XG350 L 4dr Sedan (3.5L 6cyl 5A)

I've owned 4 Hyundais. I currently also have a 2007 Azera. I bought this one as a left over in early 2003. In 142,000 miles, I've put $200 into it for non-maintenance repairs. The reliability has been unbelievable. All I've replaced are tires, brakes, and the battery. And I service the tranny, cooling system and oil regularly. The last time it had a full tune up, it was still in South Korea! The body is still good (paint just starting to weather), the interior has held up fine. The electronics have been good. The cruise control occasionally goes into a funk (it won't resume properly), but it's straightened itself out every time. If it died today, it would still be the best car value ever.

Noticed a lot of same

by on
Vehicle: 2002 Hyundai XG350 L 4dr Sedan (3.5L 6cyl 5A)

I was reading some of the reviews and noticed same problems. Anyway our XG350 gave us a couple of problems. First one was the Alternator, coolant hose was bad, radio keeps shutting off on its own, moon roof doesn't work, tiptronic isn't good at all shifts way to late, transmission is starting to go bad, car feels like it has no control (handling), shocks starting to make noise but its sounds like it might be the bushings not the shocks. Hope it is shocks and not bushings by the way my mom drives this car and it has max 20,000 miles and its an 02. Other than that the car is pretty fast for a Hyundai. But I wouldn't recommend this car to anyone. It doesn't look nice and quality isn't that great.
