1991 Hyundai Scoupe LS 1.5 four cylinder non-turbo from North America
Decent little car
Replaced timing belt "many times".
Alternator replaced once.
Transmission seems to have issues once in awhile going into gear.
I bought this car years and years ago, and I have never gotten rid of it. It hasn't been my daily driver in years, but I still enjoy taking it out for a spin once in awhile.
I've not seen another Scoupe on the road around here in at least three years, and you can't miss mine with the bright, well not so bright anymore, yellow paint.
The only reason I ever got this car, is that back in the 1990's I owned a Geo Storm GSi, and some lady ran into the back of me and totaled it. I went out looking for another Storm, and saw the Scoupe, and bought it on site without even driving it, because I assumed it would be a nimble and as quick as the Geo... well boy I was wrong; the Scoupe is a SLOW car, and with the A/C going the car is barely going.
It handles good, but you really can't get any speed up unless you trash the engine and transmission, and I have never done that to this car. I guess that's the reason it has lasted so long.
I don't think I'll ever get rid of it as long as it runs.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
