Summary:

A good car for a good price

Faults:

Electric rear sunshade defect from the factory.

General Comments:

This is a solid car, solid build, not a compromised design.

Good quality of materials and comfortable.

I think for the price of a Passat, you get something closer to an Audi A6 (not quite, but very close), and I will spit in the face of everyone who says the VW Passat is a better car. It's a death machine; uncomfortable, with super rigid suspension squeaking everything in the car, and AWFUL reliability.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

Summary:

It's a luxobarge

Faults:

Nothing yet.

General Comments:

Something that reminds me of the big Buicks or Olds I rented in the 1990's. The ride is floaty, and city road imperfections unsettle the car. Having said that, it has all the toys, is extremely quiet, and the stereo rocks. I never thought I would buy a car like this, but is actually quite good isolating you from nasty Hong Kong traffic.

The Grandeur is still going strong, and basically no problem. Still not used to the suspension being so soft, but otherwise very happy. Good to see Hyundai making even better cars these days.

Great to hear. Do you still have the luxo barge in Hong Kong? I have seen a few of these cars in Australia with 300,000 km on them, and they still look great. An updated review would be appreciated.
