2002 Hyundai Trajet GLS 2.0 DOHC 16v
Good quality family car
Front interior/ reading lamp not working properly, it's probably broken by the previous owner.
"T" pipe for water heater broken at 115.000 km, fortunately I don't need that since we have no snow in Indonesia.
Power steering seal and front shock absorber needed to be changed at 98.000 km, after I just spent my money for installing car multimedia entertainment, rear parking sensor and of course regular gasoline.
This is very good family car sold world wide with a very... very... reasonable price when I bought it, compare to its rival, which most Indonesians take a fancy to.
Gasoline consumption is fair as you look for 2 litre engine power, as its big engine is suitable and made for long distance cruising. Hope there will be new invention or technology as 2.0 litre engines run with 1 litre consumption for 15 km, then I might throw this beautiful minivan away! My Trajet uses 2002 engine technology without CVVT, VVT-i, or VTEC technology, but the fuel consumption is much better than its new "rival" Kijang Innova (year 2006), which using latest VVT-i technology; during trip to Bandung from Jakarta in highway, the fuel consumption reached 12,7 km/litre. The city movement spent 7,8 km/litre. That's why I still love this car. I'm just wondering if I can buy New Trajet 2008 with CVVT technology.
What spacious room I have for my family for traveling with 'real" comfort. The ride and handling are good and firm, compared to my previous MPV (Toyota Kijang) before I changed to a Hyundai Elantra.
Slightly under powered when climbing a steep hill, but still does a reasonable speed.
My family are happy with the complete features inside this car, as other families expect for a minivan.
I just wondering if I can should a new Hyundai Trajet CVVT or Hyundai Entourage for next.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

We have the 4 speed automatic Trajet with a 2.0L petrol engine and don't expect to get much more than 18 MPG. Perhaps mid 20s on a run.
A CVT auto would be a very bad choice on any car! Noisy and even poorer fuel economy.
The Trajet for all its design faults is still a comfy car for several people to travel in.
Ours is 11 years old and has done just 48K miles. Still has the original battery and exhaust. But has had 6 (yes SIX) new suspension top mounts!!!
