A reliable, unpretentious car that delivers
Replaced front and rear shocks at 78000.
Clutch at 97000, and this is Boston driving.
Still on original radiator, just replaced some hoses.
Timing belt at 74000.
Shift knob plastic wore out, so got the heavier one from 2006.
I tend to keep cars a long time (8 years for Acura, 11 years for my VW Fox). And so it is with this easy to work on Hyundai. Lift up the hood and it's not all clogged and cluttered like a Honda or Toyota.
The engine and drive train are solid, and the 5 speed tranny is fun even in Boston. Just. Have the clutch bleeding procedure done.
Add some good tyres and the handling improves. 26 MPG city/32 highway below 75 mph cruising.
