Good quality, low maintenance, 32 mpg, comfortable front seats, small back seats, adequate acceleration, good sound system, large trunk. Great value for the money. Nothing wrong with the car, except that it's just not exciting or luxurious.
I work at home, so I'm not running up miles as a commuter. My car has a very small wheelbase, a great turning radius that lets me get in and out of tight parking spaces, and it has a lot of zip, too--acceleration when needed, and power to spare. I recently drove it 2400 miles from Los Angeles to Asheville NC in seven days, moving with traffic or at the speed limit. We stopped four or five times a day for food, fuel, bathroom breaks and overnight lodging. My average fuel mileage for that trip was a little over 41 miles per gallon. We encountered hail and chain lightning in New Mexico, electrical storms in Texas, and a cloud burst of near-Biblical proportions on the mountain road between Knoxville, TN and Asheville, NC. Nothing fazed this car. But living in a mountainous community with four seasons is very different than the mostly flat Los Angeles basin. I traded this car in on a somewhat larger, all wheel drive Subaru, and got exactly what it was worth, according to three Internet pricing services. Bye bye Hyundai. I don't miss it. I would have replaced it with a larger, AWD model, but the sales staff at the local Hyundai dealership were such jerks that I couldn't stand to be around them. So I bought a Subaru Forester and lived happily ever after.
First - I'm really big guy, 6'5" and 250 lbs so I get laughed at when I fold in half to get in/out of my accent.
Second - I just passed 92K miles in 38 months (bought it new), and drive 325 miles straight about once a week.
This is a good, very reliable, cheap to operate little car. No bueno when there is more than a few inchees of snow, but you can't expect much. I get about 36 MPH on the interstate doing 85-90 mph. I can get about 42 mph around town if I'm driving like a grandma (mine is a stick shift).
Only problems we had was when my son hit a raccoon with it and just about totalled the car....took out the entire front end and did almost $6K in damage, for A RACCOON!!! Oh well, it got fixed and it's been great ever since.
Worst issue I have had with the car is that it's RED, and wifey wanted BLUE. But the dealership, even after 3 months, couldn't find us a blue one. Hyundai needs to fix this; if I want to order a blue one, i should get a blue one.
