2008 Hyundai Veracruz: We're Veracruzin'
February 11, 2008
I like our new Hyundai Veracruz.
It drives nice and smooth, feels refined and is quiet on the road. The 260-horsepower V6 has sufficient power for its weight. It's seats and driving position are comfortable...
It's easy to climb in and out of, even for short people like me. And with Hyundai you get a lot for your money. So, our Veracruz is nicely equipped with leather seats and a premium audio system.
The heated seats are a little too mild for my taste but at least it has them. The headlights are rather dim. When leaving the office Friday night, I had to see the car's reflection to make sure they were actually on. It's not that they don't work, it's just that most vehicles today beam out like an exploding star.
It has its quirks. For example, the A/C system likes to sing along with the radio. I wouldn't mind if it wasn't so off-key. But it works quickly and the dials are clearly labeled and intuitive.
So far, I like it.
