A great car for the price, but you get what you pay for in the service area
Recall on the mass-air sensor.
Fuel injector leaking.
Engine is getting noisy.
Brakes are getting noisy.
The performance of this car is great overall. The 170 hp seems like a lot more. Acceleration, handling, braking are all acceptable or better.
The problems I have had seem typical of Hyundai. The dealer told me that the noise in the brakes is normal as the car gets older (that is not normal). There have been a few recalls, nothing serious.
My biggest complaint is with the dealer. They seem to feel that getting service is not a big rush. While the warranty is 10/100, it can sometimes be a pain to get the car in for a service in a reasonable timeframe.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Don't Know
