    My car

    First of all its good to be back the reason for returning is not so good I purchased the New 2015 Hyundai i20 8 weeks ago in March and have had nothing but problems with this new model First the car was stalling and carbon warning light on so first trip back to the garage which deals with Hyundai Nissan and Renault after calling the AA breakdown the car software had to get reprogramed Next the ice warning alarm would not stop as it was going from -40 to +30 so every time it went back down alarm head still ringing back again to Hyundai it was an outside temperature senor not fitted to my car so the wiring could not find it so had to wait 2 weeks to get sorted I have had a few problems starting it again being looked into by Hyundai car back in Hyundai garage again because my dash is discolouring from black to white seating stitching looks like it is starting to ravel not hole yet a car from hell I can not say to much more as it now in the hands of my solicitor I will say a few good things the outside style good nice room and the diesel is very cheap to run and you will need to save a few pounds I can not mention anymore as it might be a condition of a settlement when it gets sorted as the car is deemed not fit for purpose I hope this will help other not to go trough what I am at present

    My car

    I have been driving this car for 2 years under lease from brand new. I am glad it was under warranty because I have had electronic failure , my whole gear box removed and a new one fitted and my doors freeze in sub temperatures and I couldn't get in my car on some cold wintery days.. Altough the Hyundi service was great and made the inconvienience a little less stressful. The car I have is very basic and plasticky inside with no exciting features to write home about. The reverse gear always sticks and the gears in general, I find a bit unresponsive at times, resulting in stalling the car at lights often and some crunching when changing gear. So I won't be opting for another hyundi. All the complaints out of the way , I can say It is very economical to run and ensure. It's a nice compact design for a car of it kind and I have been mainly happy to buzz about town with it. The boot is a good size and the car does feel roomy inside. I don' t rate it much on motorways though. I gets me from A to B and I don't feel it sways in wind as such, but didn't feel it was sturdy enough when trying to cruise at 75 - 80mph. It is rubbish at over taking as it is slow to pick up enough speed. Once the speed is up it doesn't complain too much, but I have had better rides on the motorway. But if you are looking for a car that is just a little run around, and the price reflects this, then I would say its ok. It won't give you any special features as very basic functions but economical and reliab
