Pros: I do love this little car. So does my son who just got his driver's license. GREAT mileage - have hit 47.7 on the highway with only me and no cargo in the car. Great handling. Good headroom. Cons: Poor rear visibility. Headlights don't light up front side of car, so can't see into where you're turning until you've already turned. Tires get flattened very easily - can't even count how many I've replaced. And they are not cheap. Around 80,000 car became very loud inside while highway driving. have to yell to people in the backseat for them to hear. My 6' 2" husband gets leg cramps on long drives, even with the seats pushed all the way back.
I bought my Hyundai in August 2013 with 16,000 miles on it. In 2014 it began making a whiney noise when accelerating. By 2016, the noise was happening frequently, and the car seemed sluggish. November 2016 I brought it into the dealership, and they replaced the small engine block. Now, May 2017, the same noise has returned!! This is an unacceptable defect in the engines, they need to be recalled!!
