Purchased As New
I purchased this car new in July 2008. I have since put 34k miles on it, mostly driving all around Michigan on horrible roads. I have not babied this car in the least. I have not had a single problem except the windshield washer sprayer pump stopped working. I got it with the 5 speed manual and was pleasantly surprised to find that the car actually has pretty good acceleration and is all around fun to drive. I was expecting the economy, which is there in spades as well, with cheap maintenance costs and good mileage.
I really like this car and if all goes well I will remain a loyal customer of Hyundai for years to come. I think that people discount Hyundai too easily. The only possible downside of this car is that the resale value does not hold up as well as honda or toyota due to perception.
Reviews knock on the soft ride and conservative styling, but being a previous lifetime owner of American cars I did not find the ride too soft. It can be a bit soft over rolling bumps, but generally handles pretty tight and has precise steering. The turning radius is also amazingly small. I like the way the car looks, especially compared to the bug-eyed look that the newer corollas have.
