Purchased As New
I have had this car since September 2011. Took me a while to find a manual transmission. Was needing to replace my '98 civic and get a larger car with great economy. Wanted to find a used Accord or some other solid car...I didn't realize I would be getting a Hyundai. Never wanted one.
I am so glad I did. I live in Houston and commute in a busy city to and from work. I still get 32-34 mpg in city. My best highway mileage with two adults and a full trunk with A/C going was 42 mpg...Yes, I drove over 70.
The space is remarkable...a huge upgrade for me over the Civic. I get my 4 kids and all school gear in the car daily. I love dropping off in the carpool line surrounded by SUVs that get horrific mpg. I love the car. Better than my '98 civic, '00 accord, '92 tercel...I have not been disappointed.
So far I am at 26k miles. Those are happy miles.
