I loved this car.
What can I say? It was smooth, fast and well refined.
The only issue I had was drive-through windows! I had to go back to my Land Rover as the coupe didn't fair well on the Scottish potholes!
I've always wanted a coupe since the current model came out in 2002. At the time, however, I could not afford to buy new so ended up with a Seat Leon.
Three years later I passed a Hyundai garage and gave into temptation and had a test drive. I managed to pick up a near new 1.6S for an excellent price and haven't looked back since!
The Leon was good, but not a patch on the Hyundai Coupe. Its not expensive to run, great to drive and so much fun!
I own 2.0-litre SE new 05 revised model. Having always liked the model since 2002, I've had a 03 Celica and a RAV4 and now this, and I can honestly say it's better than a Celica - except in the engine department, which is great but not as racy as a Celica.
The interior is well put together and I just want to drive it all day!
I test-drove this car to see if it was a worthy replacement for our second car.
We were lucky enough to get the keys to a brand new 2.0 SE with all the toys - leather seats, electric everything etc etc. It's very good to look at.
It has a sporty drive, is very direct around bends and twisty roads.
We found the interior quality OK, but found it difficult to come to terms with the indicator stalk being on the "wrong" side (right-hand side). I kept switching the wipers on instead of the indicator.
The car's great and is a contender. Especially with 5-year / 100,000-mile warranty and a nice £2000 discount thrown in!

I once owned an 04 GT (the version with the stupidly heavy clutch - a built in gym for your left leg). I've driven both editions since and must say…
I bought my TT 2 years ago, second hand (99 model)with 40k on the clock. Since then it has done 40 more. Service costs have been £250 a time. Timing…
