2003 Hyundai Atoz GLA 1.0 from Malaysia
A tortoise pace gas guzzler
Front brake shudders after 3 months. Rectified under warranty.
Back brake having "knocking sound" when brakes applied. Rectified under warranty.
Overall brake still felt spongy.
Door rubber gasket badly fitted. Service Center can't do anything about this problem.
Most serious defect. Rear axle alignment out, causing uneven wear to tires. Apparently rear axle is fixed and cannot be adjusted.
I find the car badly underpowered.
Fuel consumption is very high for 1.0 liter engine. Getting 9.0 to 10.0 liter / 100km.
Driver seat not comfortable. Designed for those with long hands and short legs!
Probably accelerator pedal fitted too high.
Serious manufacturer defect. rear axle alignment is out and there is no way I can adjust it.
Engine noisy at speed.
On the plus side cabin space is great.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No
