2008 Hyundai i30 1.6 petrol from Korea
Excellent value, performance, and looks
Remote entry battery already dead.
I purchased every option except the sunroof and the 2.0L engine back in October 2008 for about US $12,500 (when the exchange rate was about W1,550 to $1.00). Now the car in US dollars is about $17,000 (current exchange rate W1,155 to $1.00).
I absolutely love my dark blue with black leather 1.6L automatic i30. It is very economical, reliable, comfortable (climate control is awesome), looks great, and the performance is fine for Korea.
Hyundai has come a long way since the days of the "Pony", and the new Sonota YF (along with the new Kia K7) is going to take the mid to large car market segment by storm (they are both sold out for months in Korea).
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
