Really great car after 4 months of driving. I think this is a sharp looking car inside and out with loads of standard features. Great acceleration. Behaves very well on the highway even at 'passing speeds'. Mileage is better than my Taurus. The car had some sway in hard turns and some tire noise but when I put on a quality set of tires both were solved. I consider this the nicest car I have ever owned, new or used, in 36 years of driving and the least expensive to buy. I was able to see the previous owner's maintenance records and the car has never had a problem.

I brought this car new and traded a 2001 Mercury Grand Marque in the deal. The Hyundai far exeeded my expectations and was far and away better than the Grand Marque in every area. I have owned many cars in my life and this is one of the best. I have driven it 58,000 miles with little or no problems.

this has been our main vehicle for 3.5 years - we bought it new after looking at various Japanese and american cars of similar size and options. for much less money AND with over double the warranty we just grin as we drive our (now) paid off car. we have had 1 issue with the car at around 50k miles - the throttle body assembly had to be replaced which was performed under warranty with no hassles at all. had that happend on any other car that expensive part and labor would have set us back about $1300. AND, IT IS STILL UNDER WARRANTY for another 25k+ miles (ha ha!). btw, we traded in a 2002 Elantra GT (sweet car also) to upgrade to the XG - we never had a minutes probelm with the GT.
Other than a few cosmetic enhancements, the XG350 remains largely unchanged for 2004. The front end was slightly reworked and projector-type foglights were added. The rear of the car looks slightly different as well -- the license plate is now housed in the rear deck lid rather than the bumper. Inside, the XG350 offers lighter tone wood grain trim, a new Infinity sound system and recessed child seat tethers. The only mechanical changes to the XG are larger front brake rotors and a trunk lid that is lifted by gas-charged struts rather than torsion bars. All XG350s now come with a full-size spare.
