Nothing so far.

General Comments:

Good little run about car. Got rid of my Amanti. That is one car I would not advise anyone to buy.

This Hyundai is a pleasant surprise. Even in our minus 20 weather and only 2500km on it, I'm getting about 6.7 litres per 100 in a town and highway mix. Also opted for every extended warranty package available, just in case this is like Kia quality, which means falls apart right after the warranty expires.

The 6 speed automatic is nice and quick with manual shifting. This car cruises nice at highway speeds too.

On highway alone, the computer says I use 5.3 litres per 100.

If you're looking for a cheap comfortable little car, I would recommend it. Also have two kids in the back with my wife and I, and still lots of room for groceries and stuff.

All in all, a great little car.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
