I hate it and will never buy another Hyundai!
The transmission had to be replaced at 12,000 miles, after 4 times in the shop.
The washer blades had to be replaced at 8,000 miles.
There is a squealing noise, which still occurs after 4 times in the shop.
There is a pinging noise, which still occurs after 2 times in the shop.
The car hesitates on cold start and will not accelerate into traffic... major safety concern... still not resolved after 8 times in the shop.
My experience with Hyundai has been the worst experience of my life with any car I've ever owned. I did a lot of research before purchasing the car, and did so because of the warranty and the high ratings from Consumer Reports. Hyundai is giving me the runaround about fixing my current problem, and I'm in the very stressful process of seeking a buyback from Hyundai. Will most likely have to hire an attorney to get any results, since Hyundai shows no signs of doing the right thing. PLEASE think very hard and long before you purchase one of these cars, and check out the web for postings of problems with them... they are everywhere!
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No
