A nice little car, spoiled by a company that won't correct problems
Toe in out from the factory, nothing bent. Cost me two tires and alignment mount and balance at 19k miles. I feel Hyundai or the dealer should have at least covered the labor.
Passenger airbag keeps deactivating with a passenger present. Dealer will not do anything till it throws a code up. Called Hyundai customer service, which is nothing but a call center, useless waste of time. In the meantime, I drive with family or a friend as passenger, wondering if they will have an airbag in this little car. Think I will try some government agency. Very serious.
Drivers visor would spring up, so it was either straight down or all up. Minor.
Shift boot developed a wear hole; dealer just got new one. Minor.
Fuel mileage not as good as expected. Was thinking it would be like a Corolla; about 5mpg less, seemed to improve slightly since alignment. Disappointing.
This car is fun to drive, handles well, good in snow, and has sufficient for what it is. Ride is what you would expect from a sporty driving car.
Interior made too cheaply. I know it is an economy car, but most anyone would probably pay a few hundred bucks more for better quality materials.
Great heat and AC.
Kind of a buzz box on the highway.
Getting into reverse is tricky at times.
If it not for the airbag issue, I would say it's a good car.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Don't Know
