    My car

    Overall I am pleased with my Coupe, I had the older model a few years ago, which was a manual, dont know whether I would go for an automatic again though, slightly more sluggish from starting. it has just had a 17,000 mile service and needed new brake pads and discs, there was an advisory on the last service about the brakes, but was very surprised the discs needed replacing, at 17,000, I had a Ford Probe previously and had done 90,000 miles in that and never has the discs replaced, would be interested if anyone else has had this problem, customer services said, discs do wear earlier on automatic models.

    My car

    I have had all three generations of the Hyundai coupe, and this one definitely is the best.

    The two previous models were great to drive, but this is something else. The looks have improved a lot and the cabin is very classy. I've got one in black and it is a real head turner, so it just goes to prove that Hyundai isn't a budget car make - it is a quality manufacturer with style, and it is definitely worth every penny.

    Having driven the Toyota Celica, it didn't once tempt me to change. I will always have a Hyundai Coupe, as it is twice the car the Celica is.

    My car

    I love this car to bits. I've had it for over two years now and it has never let me down. I admit it has not all been plain sailing - I've had a new steering column because it was making some very odd noises, but that was covered under the five-year warranty.

    There were a lot of people who thought that this car would be impractical for me as I am a wheelchair user, but I just keep proving them wrong. People are always shocked how much you can get in a coupe, especially when I take it on trips to Ikea!

    The only issue I have is that the servicing costs are slightly higher than I would expect, but if you ask me, it's worth it!

    My car

    I love this car. If you buy one, you are guaranteed heads will turn. It's quite spacious inside and has great boot space. The price I got it for was amazing - there are deals there, just look around.

    My children and husband adore it. Fuel consumption - I actually find it quite reasonable.

    It costs £40 to fill up, and this gives me 320 miles. It's a nice run around and good on the motorway - although I have not done huge distances. The dealer was incredibly nice and it was not just because he wanted to sell it.

    He explained the vehicle etc etc. It came with 12 months' road tax and a full tank of fuel and they matched a dealer who was offering the vehicle in a deal. So I could not ask for more.

    The vehicle is brand new. There are some nice-looking sports cars and this is one of the better ones.

    The car is a little wider and longer than previous vehicles I have owned (a Corsa and Suzuki Swift), so you need to think about parking and reversing more carefully. I cannot get into spaces like I used to - and no it's not because I'm a woman.

    I get some fabulous looks. It's a real eye-catcher. The boot is nice, there's not lots of bending to get items out or into it.

    My insurance is really good and was only £10 more than the Corsa. I had been wishing myself a car of this calibre for a little while and thought stuff it, I dont have to wait until I'm retired to get it. Enjoy life now, and you will with this car.
