1999 Hyundai Lantra 1.8 litre from Australia and New Zealand
A small reliable car, if a bit heavy on fuel
A component of the driver's side electric window motor snapped, and had to be replaced at cost. (September 04).
Remote key less entry/central locking mechanism stopped working for no apparent reason. (July 04).
This car is very reliable, and has always started when I turned the key. When I first bought the car I did not treat it very well, and drove it very hard and rough. The car survived, and now drives excellently. It is a bit small to those who have a family to consider, and the boot size is not big enough to fit a pram and the groceries. Also the back seat is small, and could comfortably fit two medium sized adults, but not 3.
The car seems to go through a lot of fuel, both in the city and on the highway, we don't understand why because it has been serviced.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
