1987 Hyundai ExcelReview
First Car — My mother's car was totaled due to an electrical fire, so I went to the dealership and bought this vehicle on the first time buyers program. The car was very fun to drive, sporty, and fast. However, the car had many performance problems.
Primary Use: Commuting to work
Pros: Great gas mileage, body was pretty
Cons: performance problems
