1997 Hyundai Coupe Base 1.6 from UK and Ireland
Most reliable car we have ever owned
Brake system equalising valve failed at nine years old.
Front wheel bearing (off side) has just been replaced.
Drivers seat worn due to heavy use.
Original battery lasted 10 years!
We bought this car new after being almost bankrupted by a demon dog of a 2.5 litre Ford Probe.
We needed a car that was ultra reliable and good looking, with fair to middling performance, and a three year warranty.
This little lady is now 13 years old, has done 157000 miles, does 430 miles to a tank of petrol, and has been the most reliable car we have ever had.
It's been to Spain twice, France, Scotland, Cornwall, and has now been relegated to my work hack, and is used every week day.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Don't Know
