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


I just turned 200 miles and the car is great.
The shifter and clutch are light and accurate.
The car is quiet and the ride is excellent.
The car feels solid over bumps with no sqeaks or rattles.
I thought the car would ride hard because of the 18" wheels and low aspect ratio tires but it is truly comfortable.
I'm coming out of a 2008 Mini Cooper Clubman S w/manual and this car is so much better.
The Mini was disappointing because of torque steer, rough ride, numerous squeaks and rattles and noise.
The more I drive this car, the more I like it.
The power is not as much as in the Mini but the car is surprisingly fast for the power rating.
Drive this car before buying anything else.
