09-reg Petrol, Owner for Less than a year

Unbelievable performance from 1.2 engine, easy motorway driving. Load space good even better with rear seat squabs removed(4 bolts) Rattles,body creaks seem to have settled down after 5K mi. 2nd gear synchro iffy! needs to be looked at. Battles to start after standing for 3 or more days, appears oil has drained out of hydraulic lifters-spins for a while before you hear the resistance of the compression. Overall very happy and warranty assuring.

Good car let down by irritating faults and very poor parts availabilty.
Juuderring clutch, failed stereo illumination and headlamp height adjustment-stlli waiting for parts after ist service in December.
Dealer says parts are on backorder. A five year warranty is worthless if you cant get faults fixed.
A fine little car let down by almost non existant Hyundai customer backup. I will not be buying another Hyundai.

Since an intial problem with the airbags I have had no further issues in over 2 years. Services etc. are reasonable as it fuel economy. Quite nippy but as small engine not a lot of pulling power.

Excellent small car. Two very minor faults since new. Nice to drive. Unbeatable value for features and equipment in it's class.

No problems at all other than an irritating noise from headlamp adjuster. Brilliant other than lower than expected mpg.
