2003 Hyundai Terracan JX290 2.9 CRDI from Costa Rica
Perfect for me in Costa Rica
All of the 3 fuse/relay boxes are labeled in Korean, & the owner's manual is like buying a Ferrari. Yet I figure things out, do not see a mechanic except for service, and have never owned a more perfect car. I hope to drive this car for the rest of my life.
The electronics are overly-complicated, and I made REAL leather seats -- which I love.
I get 14 km/liter & use 4WD almost daily. This car has saved my butt many times, handles like a sports car and hauls anything. Rides like a truck -- which it is.
After 10 years, everything works! Can't say that about many cars.
It is tough on batteries, and I connect a charger at night, plus I use a battery with double the recommended capacity.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

I am in Costa Rica and need an alternator belt for a 2004 Hyundai Terracan. The one I had was shredded and I'm unable to find the number on the belt I need... Help.
Thanks, Sue Johnson.

I thought I had written this. Live in CR, have a 2003 Terracan, & always felt as you do. However now the car in in the shop for a second time after failing emissions tests & paying a $3000 repair bill. Looks like the injectors were ruined by bad fuel.
