Good car, one problem
My car had trouble starting soon after purchase at 48,000 km.
This is my first car and it has been great and very economical on petrol. It is very nice to drive, however less comfortable for passengers as mine is a 2-door.
I have only owned the car for a year now, and am I bit disappointed that I'm having problems with the car starting, given it's fairly low km odometer reading.
This problem began soon after I bought the car and has continued to get worse. Sometimes the car starts fine, sometimes it takes a while to start and other times it won't start at all. On occasions I have had to leave the car for up to an hour before I can finally get it moving. When I turn the key over the car sounds like it's trying to start, but just won't kick over. Spark plugs are fine, petrol and liquids are full. An auto-electrician suggested it may be a problem with the security system, but says the problem is unfamiliar to him.
It is also difficult to get advice due to the inconsistent nature of the problem. I will be bringing the car to Hyundai when I get the chance and when it is suitable for me not to have a car for a few weeks (which will be rare).
All in all a good first car, but have been turned off the car after being stranded on several occasions.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No
