After 3 months, could not live with the lack of power
By rskdsk on


2012 Hyundai Veloster 3dr Hatchback w/Red, Black Interior (1.6L 4cyl 6AM)


In general it is a nice car, but the lack of power is just not something I can handle any longer.
If you live in a place were you need to pull out into traffic ... DO NOT BUY THIS CAR ... or you will cause an accident.
I got the fully loaded model with the tech and appearance package, moon roof, etc... but could not get home-link.
The nav is easy to use with good graphics, the ride is ok, but sloppy when push to it's limits.
The 38 mpg is only achieved when light-footed on the highway, otherwise the true milage is 27-28.
In summary, I thought by buying a fully loaded model would somehow compensate for the lack of power ... I was wrong.

Worst Features

POWER ... NEEDS MORE POWER! The duel clutch is rough on initial take-off.
