Summary:

It's a good car ruined by poor quality details

Faults:

The car came with a loose rear spoiler. It made a dent and a scratch in the bodywork around the back door. To fix it properly, it needed a major paint on most of the side/rear.

Rear back lights not even. One side had bigger gaps between the chassis and taillights.

Before you buy this car, you should consider checking the paintwork around the chassis on the rear door. It looks like somebody hammered it to the car with a small hammer! Even the paintwork some places are worse than on an old Lada :-)

General Comments:

I had this car only 6 weeks, before I delivered it back to Hyundai and got my money back.

I like the engine and ride (be sure to check air pressure on your tires, because mine was almost blown out).

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Don't Know

Congratulations on your good review, and sorry for the poor state of your car.

I'm contemplating buying one or its sibling - the KIA SPORTAGE (2011 model) with a diesel engine. I'd like to have an idea about fuel consumption. I'd greatly appreciate if you could help with some info. SAS.
