Nice.. but would not buy another Hyundai ever.. too much money.. on something you can't rely


Where to begin?

The car has won so many prizes, that is hard to believe that my car is a total piece of metal. They say it was just something that was going to happen, but it makes no sense.

I am very strict when it comes to maintenance, I took my car to have it tuned up; oil change, filters, that kind of stuff, and then, they call me and tell me my motor is dead. I just took it in for maintenance and for no reason it just got damaged.

General Comments:

The car is comfortable, but even though it is a diesel, it still is high maintenance.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No
