The Hyundai stellar is a wonderful car and would make and excellent 1st car for anyone
Since the car had sat for several years mice had gotten into some of the wiring harnesses and some needed to be rebuilt.
Rear wheel cylinders were shot and leaky.
Starter died but was easily rebuilt.
The switch for the fan had broken so it was either going full blast or not at all.
When I first saw the car at a local grocery store add I thought that it would be a cheap car to buy and drive. I had no idea that stellars were rear wheel drive. as soon as I saw the car myself I absolutely fell in love with it.
It was incredibly clean and in near perfect condition, and had so few miles.
Despite the slight lack of comfort and performance the car was so much fun to drive in the winter. It would slide around snow covered roads with just quick shot of gas in second gear.
Other than a few minor problems the car was very reliable, and very efficient on gas, as well as the small amount of oil it burned.
Being my first car and a standard I just loved driving it every where, even out on country roads, it would just stick to the gravel at 130+ with nothing more than 4 all season tires on it.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
