2007 Hyundai Getz 1.4 Standard


Fast, economical and cute


A while ago I started having problems with starting the car, my lights wouldn't switch on, the windows did not work etc. Anything electrical in the car does not want to switch on. The only way for me to switch the car on is if I fiddle with the wires at the back of the ignition plug. The only way to also have my windows work is to fiddle with the wires at the back of the ignition plug. But my lights and window wipers don't work because I would need to fiddle with the wires, but once I leave them, the lights go off and the wipers stop working. Can anyone please advise what my options are? What could be the problem and why?

General Comments:

I love my Hyundai Getz! It is so reliable. Easy on petrol as well.

2010 Hyundai Getz High spec 1.4


Sensible small hatch


Hard to select reverse when the car is cold.

A/C makes an odd noise when the car is hot (dealer says this normal).

Driver's seat belt pretensioner needed replacing (R700).

General Comments:

Very pleased with the car. It's a pleasure to drive, and is cheap to maintain. Has enough for the open road, and gets top marks for handling.

The only thing I don't like, is that the car feels very underpowered when the A/C is on. Looks great.

2004 Hyundai Getz 1.6 1.6 petrol


Cute, average performer


Very sluggish gear change between first and second.

Too long delay to register chosen gear option. Reverse/Drive.

Gearbox changes to lower gear when it is not required. At 120 km/h the slightest throttling will let gears change to third, or even second! Very, very irritating!!!

Fuel consumption is horrifying! Presently driving mainly 25 km stretches to and back from work the consumption is 8,9 km/liter. I am not a racer and even tried to improve the consumption by driving a steady 100km/h. It made no difference.

I now notice that the car has a delayed start when the car is warm.

General Comments:

I loved my previous car, but had to change it for more space for the suitcases of the pupils I need to transport to school every day!

The looks of the new Getz is lovely! The car handles well in normal weather conditions, but winds tend to be felt.

The design is great, and without the irritations mentioned above, it would be my ideal car.

I've got Getz 2006, 1.6lt. Auto.

Fuel consumption is horrible - around 10 l/100km in the city w/o air con.

And I also have this problem with a warm start - it waits for a 1 sec before continue cranking.

Performance is very good though.

Slow gearshift, average performance, bad fuel consumption. Easy solution: Next time, buy a manual.
