2013 Hyundai Veloster 3dr Hatchback w/Black Interior (1.6L 4cyl 6AM)


Bought a 2013 Veloster in December 2012.
Never owned a Hyundai anything but was struck with the MPGs, and the tech and sport package as well as the car's design.
Then...problems and more problems.
The car would stall and cut off on me constantly.
Took it to the dealer they "couldn't duplicate the customer's concern" 6 times taken to the dealer! The car would cut off on me on the freeway, surface streets, gas stations you name it it stalled and cut off.
I didn't realize that Hyundai was selling prototypes?
I needed a reliable car...and this ain't it!
Buyback here I come.
Oh, btw beware of the Arbitration clause that you must do if you don't "opt-out" with 90 days of purchase.

Best Features

External design. Cabin technology (400+ watt stereo system, back up camera and great navigation system.

Worst Features

Fix the plethora of problems with the engine control and mechanics before you roll out a car to consumers!
