Was suffering from very poor performance and very hard starting at 95k miles, and had a major tune-up done (by the dealer) which fixed all the problems.

I bought this car right out of college and traded in another Hyundai (one my parent's gave me that I had trashed). I shopped around before buying and it turned out that Hyundai was the best deal for me. Plus I was given a "loyalty" incentive for buying another Hyundai.
I didn't buy this car to drag race, it's *not* a barn burner. Passing cars can be tricky because of this.
I've taken good care of it, washing that North-eastern USA winter salt off off of it (no rust) and changing the oil every 3-5k miles.
The car is loud when driving, so I bought a CD-player that is louder than the car noise and have gotten used to it.
I've owned the car for nearly six years now. It's paid off, has never caused me any major headaches (other than needed a tow twice) or dings to my bank account. Overall it's been good to me.
