- Cute car
- Terrible gas mileage, bluetooth cheap and problematic
Purchased As New
The main reason I leased this car was for the gas mileage. As of now, at a little over 7500 miles, I am still getting horrible mileage. I was told that the car wouldn't start seeing decent mileage until it was broken in at 2000 miles, then at 5000, then at 7500 miles. Now, I'm told it could be 15,000 miles before I start getting the mileage I had expected. Seems to be a common complaint, from what the service manager told me.
The BlueLink bluetooth is problematic; it doesn't work as often as it does works. Again, the service manager told me that since it's a device new to Hyundai, there are a lot of bugs to work out and they've had many complaints.
A minor issue is the placement of the front dash air vent. The vent is positioned so that when your hands are on the steering wheel they block the air coming from the vent.
Not to mention that neither the sales person nor the finance manager told me about the $400 fee I would have to pay when my lease was up (a return fee, waived only if I buy the car or lease another from them) or that the Sirius Radio would expire in 90 days (I was led to believe it was part of the package).
So, Hyundai misled me on the gas mileage, downplayed the cheapness of the bluetooth, hid a $400 fee from me, and lied about Sirius. Once my lease is up, I'm walking away from this car and from Hyundai permanently!
Oh.....and I REALLY hate when everyone I deal with at Hyundai makes sure to tell me to please give them all 10's when I get the evaluation. Seems they're more interested in getting a good rating than in being honest about their cars.
