2005 Hyundai XG350 L 6 cylinder from North America
The worst purchase we have ever made
The first problem I had with the car was the Cd changer would not power up. I took it in, they said it was fixed, but the next day it would not power up.
Then, when I would put the car in reverse, it would die. I took it in three times before they could figure out what was wrong with it.
Then, I went to the car wash and got wet, because the seals did not seal.
Also, after they installed the new Cd changer, it skipped on every Cd, so they had to order another Cd changer.
And, the best mileage I have gotten is 24mpg. My minivan got better than this car.
Also, on several occasions, the rear window has gotten stuck down. It has taken me up to 30 minutes to get it to roll back up.
I have only had my car for four months, and I hate it. I would trade it in if I had any equity in it. I will get rid of it as soon as I can. It rides nice, but not quietly. I can barely fit my three children in the back seat. I would not travel over 20 miles with them in the back seat they are so cramped. It really looked bigger when we were looking at it. It is a cute car, but it is definitely not worth the money we are paying for it. It is the worst decision we have ever made when car shopping. If we hadn't decided to buy the extended warranty, we would really be in trouble.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No

Sorry that you were taken for a ride, but you should really have checked out the interior size before you bought this car. But misleading Hyundai advertising could be to blame because reading the advertising for this car you get the impression that this is a large car. But it is not since it is just a slightly stretched Sonata which is a compact car and they've added a larger engine to make it more up-market.
Many thinks the XG is such a bargain because they compare it with a Buick. But the Buick is actually much larger. It's only from the outside that you think the XG is a large car. The interior is actually quite cramped.
