1998 Hyundai Coupe SE 2.0 from UK and Ireland
Good for first 5 years, poor for last year
Throttle Position Switch, continuous problems have had this replaced every year almost on the dot.
Oxygen Sensor, had to have this replaced last month following poor emissions on last MOT.
Catalytic Converter, this was due to Throttle Position Switch and oxygen sensor problems which fuelled the Catalytic Converter and has burnt it out.
Exhaust Manifold. This is a known fault, which Hyundai are aware, a crack appears at the branch and you have to replace the Manifold with the Catalytic Converter as they are build as one.
Clock, the clock flashes on and off.
The car has been generally reliable.
I am still on my first Clutch, Suspension and Exhaust excluding the Manifold and Catalytic Converter.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Don't Know

Yep, had exactly the same on my 1998 coupe. Failed emmisions led to new exhaust manifold and new cat - very expensive.
I've also got the annoying clock on and off problem.

I have had exactly the same problems with my Coupe. The exhaust manifold is cracked and needs replacing and I have a flashing clock. Still love the car though and have had plenty of fun in it.
