This is my first hyundai car and overall iam pleased with the car.My main criticism of this model is the somewhat high fuel consumption if the car is driven with any degree of power such as overtaking on motorways.I would add however that if the car is driven with care and attention then fuel consumption does improve.On average i usually get approx 40-45 mpg.The car interior is roomy and seating comfortable and although the cabin plastics are somewhat low rent i feel that this is an unfair criticism on a car of this price.I have seen the interiors of the new getz models and the trim and interiors are greatly improved on previous nodels.In summary i would recommend the hyundai getz as a cheap reliable car which gets the job done with a minimum of fuss.However if fuel consumption is what you are most concerned about then go for the 1.1 petrol model or the 1.5 diesel.Both these models will return 50mpg+.I would like to fnish by saying that i would buy hyundai again in the future and that the new getz models 1.1gsi are fantastic value at £5995.
My wife owns this car, though I have driven it and I drove it recently on a 300-mile round trip when on holiday in Cornwall.
When we were loking for a car to replace her Ford Ka, I wanted her to get one with some legroom, as I am 6ft tall and built like Grant Mitchell (yes, even his hair cut!).
We looked at the VW Fox, Ford Fiesta and the Hyundai Getz. I was amazed at how much legroom the Getz had. The ride is smooth, the dash is very sporty and clear Air-con is standard, and in fact you will find that most things are.
The boot space was a pleasant supprise, and has hidden compartments, and the rear seats move forward to make the boot little deeper. The thing that really surprised me was the legroom in the back for a small three-door hatch was amazing.
If you buy a new one you get a huge amount included in the price, a few hidden extras and what an amazing warranty (check the dealer for details) - 6 years!
We are very pleased, though I must admit I was very impressed with the Fiesta (2007 at the time). The cabin room is like the Tardis, and the car is very smooth, so I may be getting one of those.
My wife is thrilled with her little Getz, though she admits that if you have the 1.1, it is too gutless to overtake on rural roads, and does not like hills! However, just go and drive one, you will be impressed.
Having previously owned an Accent which was faultless I decided to purchase a Getz 1.1 GSI on a 54 plate but have found it a disappointing experience. The exterior styling is good - far better than most rivals and the interior is of a higher quality than the Accent but the vehicle is developing more and more irritating faults and fuel economy is disappointing for such a small car. So far, replaced radiator, rattling exhaust, 2 oil leaks, ABS/Brake problems, Engine removed and put back again and CD player useless. Hyundai aftercare disappointing. Will replace with a different make at end of warranty period.
What a cracking little diesel hatchback. Cheap road tax @ £35 per year and excellent fuel economy. Handling is not brilliant, but suffice for the model. Gear Ratio is different i.e. at 30mph, you have to travel in 3rd gear and not 4th gear. Haven't needed the warranty yet, but this is the 4th Hyundai I have bought from the excellent and friendly dealership at Milton Keynes Autorama with Steve Turney(Manager)and Marc(Sales Manager)who at all times offer 1st Class customer service.
