I bought this car new after a recommendation from a friend. Overall good quality. It was in the shop once for a mass air flow sensor. Very good gas mileage, and not too uncomfortable. I'm 6'2 and can ride comfortably. Brakes are fantastic, 38,000 on the first front pads, and 53,000 and going on the rear shoes.
Gas mileage, price, and warranty, low cost of ownership.
More power, extremely sluggish, especially with the A/T and in the 4 door model.
I've had this car for 3 years and had
to replace the brakes and roters twice
already. I've never had a car go
through brakes this fast. I just found
out that have have to replace the
harmonic balancer.(not cheap and no
longer under warrenty). I have had
other work done on it while it was
under warrenty. It seems like an awful
lot is going wrong with this car for
it's age. I have to replace the flex
pipe as well. I guess you get what you
pay for. In the future I will spend
more initially to have a fewer problems
and hassles later.
Excellent gas economy.
More hp and work on controlling road
noise. Overall quality could use
improvemnts. Although, you really do
get what you pay for....
This is a quality commuter car.
Despite its slight appearance, it will
take a beating and keep delivering.
Mileage is great and the annual
maintenance cost is minimal. An ideal
car for those with a long commute, or a
good first car for a teenager.
The car was ok at first. When, I
moved north and commuting 80 miles a
day(highway)trouble started. The car
lost control allot even going slow.
Parts cost allot and are only avail
through Hyundai. The car started
running poorly once the miles started
going up. Final straw was a minor
repair that cost 200. Only a
dealership 1 hour away would look at
my car & I was w/o it for 3 days
because the closer ones couldnt be
bothered and normal repair shops
wouldnt do the work. BTW it wasnt
covered under warranty and they blamed
the place I had my oil changes done
till someone from there called them.
You get what you pay for!
I bought my hyundia in 2000. The reason
i bought it was for the warranty it
turns out you really need it. I had no
problems the first year of ownership.
Just after a year it seems like i was
at the dealership every couple of
months. Some work was under warranty.
Some wasn't . I wouldn't consider
buying another one in the future.
