2003 Hyundai Excel Hatchback 1.5 multi point inj. from North America


Stops on a dime, turns on a nickel and drives you around town for a quarter!


Both doors sag so they must be lifted up to open them. Not noticeable once open! The sun visors are way too cheap, the clips are broken, they don't stay up. The thermostat was stuck open so the car never reached operating temp. like all the 1.5 liter excels. 3rd gear synchros are a little week, trans. a little noisy, Red line synthetic oil fixed trans. problem.

General Comments:

What a blast! suspension is floaty and rolley like a rubber ball. couldn't ask for more out of this super cheap auto. As expected to be, cheap, but a very good deal. $900.00 into it now. Needs tie rod ends or ball joints for 70 MPH. 65 is OK tho, No shimmy!

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
