Summary:

Great

Faults:

The 3rd gear's synchro has gone. Need to shift very gently or push the clutch twice.

Passenger's door doesn't lock with central locking.

Spark plug cables needed replacement (2 & 4 were burnt?).

Reverse lights stopped working despite bulbs replacement.

Front tyres worn out quickly.

Battery keeps going flat after 5 days of no use.

General Comments:

Wanted an MPV and this was a real bargain. The 7 seats are a bit disadvantage as luggage space is small, but still enough for buggy etc.

The car "glides" well. A bit higher fuel consumption, but after all, it's a van with only a 2.0L engine.

Very spacious and comfortable, especially on long runs.

Need higher revs when overtaking or going uphill.

Top speed of 100 MPH is adequate for this kind of car, however acceleration isn't good, and it needs to be downshifted...

2000 Hyundai Trajet GSi 2.0 petrol from Australia and New Zealand

Model year2001
Year of manufacture2000
First year of ownership2001
Most recent year of ownership2004
Engine and transmission 2.0 petrol Automatic
Distance when acquired0 kilometres
Most recent distance27000 kilometres
Previous carSubaru Legacy

Summary:

It is a good vehicle with the wrong engine

Faults:

Driver seat had to be replaced in year two due to a damage in the spring.

The vehicle would pull to the left and wear tires too fast; this has been fixed.

Driving in the city can be quite expensive. A tankful burns in as low as 220 kilometers. When I am lucky it travels for 300 kilometers in my flat city. The dealer says the engine is fine, but I do not agree.

General Comments:

This vehicle steers very well and makes you feel in control all the time.

It has a fairly strong engine.

It burns as much gasoline as my 1980 5.7 V8 Pontiac Bonneville.
