Summary:

An awesome Sports car for the money

Faults:

Crankshaft oil seal, which is really rare to happen in a new car, but the dealer repaired it free of charge.

General Comments:

An awesome looking car, people will turn their heads anytime you pass by them, especially if you have a bright color like mine (RED), the finishing is very good for a korean car, not as good as the Japanese, but for this price it's awesome, the seat are very comfortable and sporty, it's sport suspension, width and being close to the ground making the cars handle in an awsome way along curves, I had to change the tires at 10000km as OEM tires handle really bad, I replaced them with KUMHO tires 225/50R16 instead of the OEM 205/55 R16 which handle much more better on wet and dry, the 1.6 L is OK, but I would definitely get the 2.0L or the 2.7L V6 if I had the money.

So for anyone out there who wants a NEW sports car don't hesitate just get it, install a High flow K&N filter in it and hear the sound of it, just like a Ferrari, I would agree with people who said that there is heat coming out of the dash in hot days, but I can live with that.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
