1999 Hyundai Excel Sprint from Australia and New Zealand
Great First car
Lately my excel has been breaking down. Not all the time, but some of the time, I will come to a set of red lights, stop as usual and the engine will just shut down. When this first started I could just start the car back up again, now it will only start after ten minutes or so.
The last time this happened, I looked under the hood and heard a rather quick and loud clicking sound around the battery area. But once I turned the car off it stopped, but when turned back to on it started again.
Does anybody have a clue what is going on? I have taken it to two mechanics and the Hyundai dealer and they both said the same thing, it has to get worse to get better.
It's a great little car I love it. Apart from it breaking down. It handles like a dream once it gets going!
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
