This car has been a real treat for me to own. My ex picked it out (new) and I really didn't want it, but we got it anyway. I took it with me in the divorce and glad I did. About 192,000 miles into it, my tranny went out. Had it replaced. About 2,000 miles later had the entire A/C system replaced. And at 226,000 had the motor replaced, but now issues with the "new" transmission ... I never was satisfied with the replacement as it was used, but at this point, I don't think there are new transmissions out there. This car has been reliable and I love it. Just waiting now for my brother to figure out how to fix the transmission and I expect another 200K out of it. I can't see ever getting a different car. I've now had this car just over 15 years.
I owned as Pontiac G6 and was not happy with the payments, so I took it back. Bought this out of the classifieds in the local paper and I am very very happy with it. For a small price, with some minor repairs from me, I love the smooth way it drives. Everyone says they though I was driving a Jaguar when they see me pull up. Very classy car and the ride is great. I do not race the car, I do however take it on the highway and it has not had any problems keeping up with the big dogs. I highly recommend this car, be sure to do regular maintenance.
interior is classy, leather and wood trim, can't go wrong with that.
in the engine compartment a lot of the plastic is very brittle.
Had an '01 XG300 that I bought new. This is an improved model, however Gas mileage goes to "pot" over 72 "ish" mph. Other than that it is a sound commuter with luxuries found in much more expensive price tags. Reliable auto that I hope goes the 148K the last one did!
Seat comfort for all. Unlike Japanese seats the seat bed is supportive for long legs. excellent visibility and trunk room. Fold down rear seat configuration eliminates need for ski racks while carrying 3 to 4 to the slopes. Excellent foul weather handling.
Improved radios/cd's. Second XG, second time I have to replace radio/cd. A bit less body roll.
The XG is by far the best car I have ever owned and at 168,000 miles she is still running like a top. The cost of ownership of this BMW in sheeps clothing has been minimal to say the lest. I keep up with the regular mainteance and expect to get at lest 200,000 miles out of this car. Driver comfort is awsome, I'm 6'6" tall and have no problem fitting behind the wheel. Even with the driver seat all the way back, the rear passenger has plenty of leg room. This car has paid for itself in the past seven years I have owned it. Hyundi, Kam'sa'hap'nida for your dedication to imroving your product by listening to what your customers have to say. Something the American car manufactures should do.
After 7 years with the car that was bought new, there is only ONE area of dissatisfaction. The interior overhead lamps (right and left), over the dash are extremely dim. Many trips to the dealer yielded no fix. They said that there is nothing that can be done. It has been this way since new. Next year, an Equus might be in my future.
Audio system is excellent. Engine and drivetrain are silky smooth. Dash is ergonomically correct and easy to use.
Re engineer the overhead maplights. I get very upset with my dim overheads, and the fact that the dealer(s) cannot do a thing to correct them.
