2003 Hyundai Accent GLS from Indonesia
My air intake and solenoid actuator blew out at 119,000km. Air intake is made by thermosetting plastic. I called Hyundai service; they were coming in 1 hour to my location (very good service). Then I asked them why this happened; they have no idea. About the cost, they ask me for Rp. 3,750,000 (USD 400) then I asked for the disc, they gave me disc 25%.
The new air intake is made of aluminum, not plastic. Looks they have known of this problem before, but they didn't want to recall this spare part.
During my usage:
1. Fuel is quite economical
2. Spare parts price is good
3. Service center is very helpful
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No
