Summary:

Runs great if you pour money into it

Faults:

Brakes needed replacing when car was 6 months old.

Alternator replaced twice since 1992.

Fan belt broke twice.

Underside rotted and had to be replaced in 1999.

Steering column replaced.

Major repairs needed in last 5 years of use; costing about $2000 a year.

Lighter stopped working years ago.

Door ajar light always on, can't be fixed.

Battery replaced 3 times.

Still original engine going strong.

Exhaust smell can't be fixed.

Rust started after 11 years of ownership when it was first parked outside.

Under carpet around spare tire is total rust.

General Comments:

Car reliably took us from point A to point B for 18 years, but at great cost of repair work. Parts break frequently; repairs are costly. The reason we kept it is because it had no trade in value. We've put perhaps $10,000 into it and it's worth maybe $200 or less right now.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No

In 20 years, your lucky to get 3 batteries. Usually a battery has to be replaced every 5 years depending on the environment.

Summary:

A Basic Car get you from A to B

Faults:

Well, This is my very first car at high school years. It is a White Pony with 4 speed manual. It is a great little car. It was very reliable. Given I knew nothing about cars at that moment. I did not do the first oil change after almost 10 month I had the car. I drove the car to school daily and took it for a trip from Vancover to Edmonton, Calargy. Never once let me down.

General Comments:

In general this is a great economy car. Good on gas. Seats are fair, It would say OK in the front. and back is is a little small. But it can carry 4 passages with 1 driver comfortably for short trip. Perform wise is adequate for daily use. Manual transmission helps a lots. It is quite good on gas.

Body paint is fair, car rust easily. Interior button can be improve. The dash light is a big too dim. The Hyundai Pony is a basic transportion.

It is not a very excited car, but it does get you from A to B everytime.

I loves this car since it has took me so places.

It seems that I have the only Hyundai Pony Pickup in the states. If I did not own one, I would think that they did not exist.

It has limited interior space, but I truly enjoy it.

I've been looking for one of these trucks for about 10 years. I've been driving a Pony sedan for about 20 years. Love the car. Got lots of parts. I'd love to find one in North or South America, and travel down to pick one of these trucks up. Anybody know where I can get one, if so e-mail me at j.sawicz@telus.net.
