Hyundai Sux — I hate the car initially have a good performance looks ugly which i can deal with but eventually i its useless and costs alot of money to own because maintainence problems arrive alot and it is no fun to drive. It is sloggy and noisy and a waste of my money which i am very depressed to have bought it

Pros: none

Cons: all

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?]

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.

Great 4 Door Sedan — Love every bit of it, except that it takes gas and gas is so damn expensive these days! It handles great, pulls a 2000lb Uhaul across Canada from Toronto to Vancouver with no problems. I got a great deal on her when I bought her, and she's a great drive! I'd say 5/5 !!!

Pros: Fully loaded

Cons: no sunroof or spoiler

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: Gas Mileage

Cons: None

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.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

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.
