2001 Hyundai Coupe FX 1.6


A good sports car that doesn't break the bank


Nothing at all; just general servicing.

The only thing that has gone a bit tatty is the paint on the spoiler has faded due to the sun burning it.

General Comments:

Great car, lovely to drive on the Spanish mountain roads with the twists and turns. Good on the motorway too; has plenty of power to cruise and keep a high 150km/h average speed.

Good fuel consumption if driven well, generally returning over 35 MPG.

The only thing I put this car down on is the way the seats move to get passengers in the back, then back, then you lose the comfy position the seat was in.

The two things Hyundai could have made better with this car in my opinion are the gear change needs a tighter throw and sportier feel to the gearbox, and rear wheel drive.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
