Purchased As New
With all the cash incentives including Cash For clunkers NOW is the time to own NEW for us. The Hyundai brand has the best warranty out there.
Along with best ratings for its standard features and durability. This car is QUITE zippy~ it has smooth acceleration and great handling. Electronic power steering is noticeably different to use~ it makes the steering wheel feel a bit "tight" until I got used to the difference.
The rear seats fold down to allow A LOT of "cargo" space with the large deep trunk. We bought ours with some added features due to buying off the lot. Mud flaps, trunk tray, carpet floor mats..the dealership gets options such as AC, power windows, fog lights, Ipod ports and XM radio in all of their cars. I wont renew the free trial XM radio and replaced the mats for rubber ones... carpet ones are to hard to keep clean.
Some of my favorite "cute" extras are MANY little extra cubby holes to store things... a rear seat fold down Cup holder set...and OOOkay I'm a woman...so I LIKE the vanity mirror above both seats~ and the little light above each mirror.
The comfort going over bumps in the road or RR tracks is BETTER than any car I have owned. There is road noise , but every car I ever owned had MORE than this car. The seats have MANY position options due to the common adjustments and a lever to bop that raises and lowers the seat too. I have some spine issues, and the seats DO feel a bit hard. I am hoping they soften a bit after a bit of use. I have not taken any long trips yet, however~ SO FAR...the smooth ride and the repositioning the seats as needed has kept me pain free from riding.
The paint on this car does not stand up to my Lab/chow paws... he jumped up first time I came up the driveway. I also noticed another scratch on a different area of a door up by the window...don't know how that one got where it did. All paint would scratch with my Casey's help... but it seems they could use a more durable heavy duty paint on cars to protect against scratches.
Lets see.... AH THE HEADLIGHTS~ I am used to a vehicle that the lights come on with the ignition and TURN off w/ the same. I turn ON my lights for day use as it seems safer... the Hyundai does NOT have a warning beep when you leave your lights on...though it does have the beeping for leaving your keys in.
