Hyundias have never been a vehicles that can give you long live, I've seen them start having major problems right at 80000 miles, sooner if not maintained properly. Check the do not buy used list on the internet if it's still up, Hyundai was on that list as well as Kia and Mitsubushi, to list just a few from memory. If your looking for a good Asian import try Honda or Toyota.

Hyundai make at-leased 800 000 km before worn. Good luck.

It depends entirely on the specific vehicle and the treatment it has received. It's pointless to ask about the reliability of an entire brand; few I can think of have had a greater variance in overall quality through the past two decades than Hyundai.


The first answer is spot on I am a certified Hyundai technician, I've got three motors to do this week one went bad at 76k an other at 52k and the last one was due to not changing they're oil but there is a reason they have a 100k power train warranty, all threw rods. They look great, have loads of features other car manufactures don't have, and if you do all the required maintance you can make any car last, also they are not race cars, Genesis's are, the V6's hold up well but have valve cover, timing cover, and oil pan leaks. Hope this was of worth.

Cooling fan operation, coolant flow and air flow through the radiator, check the ability of the cooling system to hold specified pressure, thermostat, if it's never been replaced do it now, check for blown headgasket.
