When I first picked the car up from the dealer it was like driving a dream car. That dream soon disappeared.
Two weeks after I purchased the Lantra, the dealer closed down. I had to travel 30 miles to find another.
It pulled away quite well, but take it on a motorway and it was very sluggish. Anything over 70mph and it whined and whistled.
The brakes were very bad. Hard braking was a nightmare. With no ABS, it flew all over the place.
The comfort level was not too bad. Air conditioning was not on my model, and I really missed it during hot weather.
However, it never failed to start first time through the 40 odd thousand miles I owned it, but I would not buy another Hyundai. It felt cheap.
It was written off by a truck rear end collision. Actaully the Lantra may not look like it, but it is a very strong car. The whole back end was in the rear cabin, but I never sustained a scratch. The truck did me a favour actually. That was the end of my Lantra. Unfortunately I had just spent £700 on a new clutch. Oh well!!
