Great Job — I like the simplicity of design and the easy driving. The performance beats most all in its class, and is easily maintained and customizable. This car is well worth the money, especially those on a budget. Well done Hyundai. Word.

Pros

She's a great little car. We expect a lot out of her & she delivers. Good comfort for myself and 3 kids. Great fuel economy.

Cons

Back seat not good for 2 car seats +1 child. Definitely not for tall/big people or anyone with knee conditions- getting in and out could be difficult.

Zippy! — I have been pleasantly surprised at the handling and performance of my mom-mobile. Weather we are loaded up for a long trip or zipping around town we get there quickly. I have driven lots of vehicles: sports/performance cars, wagons & minivans, a dual-axle pick-up, & econo cars. They all have their pros & cons but this is a happy medium!

Get This Car!!! — like: good gas mileage and very reliable! Haven't had a more reliable car ever! dislike: not good at racing and it's a cheap mode of transportation. This car will never break down... so I expect to keep it for a very long time!

Pros

Quick pick-up w/out A/C on, smooth handeling, great gas milage

Cons

Loss of pick-up when A/C is on

Highly Recommended For The Avg. College Kid Not Looking For A Sports Car — This is a great little car for anyone who just wants to go places.. It has nice pick-up, smooth handling, and has pretty good gas mileage. AVG MPG is around 26 in the city and close to 34 on the highways. I own the manual, which is a lot of fun. The clutch is really smooth and the control is excellent. The only major downside is that there is a great loss of horsepower once the A/C is turned on.. makes the acceleration slow down a lot from a stand-still.

Fun — It doesn't look fast, but it's 2.0L DOHC engine with 140 horses geared high on the 5-speed manual, and a car weigh-in of 2700 pounds, it's got potential, very fun. Great stock sound system. Plenty of room for three more friends. Great cargo. Great lighting. Will have many years of fun with this car.

Pros

It drives. It has 4 seats, a gas pedal, and a steering wheel. I think it has a brake, but I'll have to check and get back to you on that one.

Cons

It is slow, and generally mundane and unexciting.

It Works. I Guess. — Yeaaaaah. This car, uh, it's good. I guess. It drives. Kind of. It's reliable, and it gets decent gas mileage. It is comfortable enough. So what's not to love? Hmmmm.... sooo, it's not the best looking car out there. I mean, it's not ass ugly like the Pontiac Aztek, but it's not exactly what we call a "looker." The driving characteristics are pretty crappy. It's slooow, and the ride is a bit choppy. I notice that the thin, small tires cause the car to wander in my lane on the freeway. [And, I do have sufficient reason to say that rear visibility is a bit poor. But we won't go into details now, will we?]

Worth Every Penny. — Nice vehicle, good warrenty, would not hold up to a major crash. Excellent engine/transmission for a manual. Excellent gas mileage, cheap payments, actually paid this one off pretty fast. Fun to drive, heck yes. Handled very well. Len was a speed demon in this one.

Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

My Car — Eh. Not much about my car. Except that it gets me to where i want to go and it gets me home. The gas mileage is great, 30 MPG..these days you cant ask for much better. The car we got in 05 and it'll be paid off in january of 09. So thats good :P. But all in all its a great car for now.

Pros

really good car drives really well awesome family car, it's got a spoiler which makes it kind of sporty looking.

Cons

well to be honest with you i realized i made a mistake, as i was younger and naive. I came to realize that when it comes to Hyundais i am not satisfied.

Awesome Car — This car was almost never in the shop except for new axles. The brakes are really good, and the handling, it drives like a dream. This car is a family car, it has never failed me. I've been on trips to the beach, parks and it got me there with ease. Most importantly this car was used for work and school only.
