    My car

    My wife recently bought the five-door 1.4 Getz GSi. It seems a very practical car with a surprising amount of room considering its length.

    The first impression you get when you slide into the driver’s seat is that you are sitting in a high, MPV-style position. This is a little disconcerting but you quickly get used to it, and I find the car comfortable.

    Slightly more annoying is the fact that the wiper and indicator stalks are reversed from standard. Again, if this is the only car you drive, you would soon get used to it, but as I drive a Mondeo, I find that each time I switch car, I am wiping when I should be indicating. This far-eastern feature could so easily have been fixed for Europe.

    In terms of build quality and finish, the car compares well with many European cars. The car is very easy to drive, handles well for its class and is a breeze to park. One thing that I would criticise is that the 1.4 is supposed to be 95bhp. In a car the size of the Getz, this should feel very lively, but for some reason, while the performance is fine, it does not feel anything like 95bhp.

    My old, much bigger and heavier Octavia, with 20bhp less, felt more powerful. My father has a 2002 Hyundai Accent 1.3 which is supposed to be 84bhp, but also feels like it has far less!

    All in all, we are both pleased with the car, which with its five-year warranty, is great value. I would have given it four stars across the board if the power had felt more like the advertised f

    My car

    I am 21 and got the Getz 1.6 Sport back in 2005.. It is very well built in my eyes of using it to nip around town and occasionally up to Newcastle. I have uprated alloys and a sport chip in mine and it is capable of SRI Corsa's and Pug GTI's much to there dis-belief!! I would recommend this car to anybody who wants a cheap car to run about in with some poke in it when it needs it.

    My car

    I drove one of these as a loan car when My Hyundai Matrix was being serviced, I didn't realise it was a diesel at first. I was impressed with the acceleration and feel of the engine. I like my matrix but am contemplating a Getz so will be out there shortly test driving if it still fits me for comfort it could be the one for me. Generally Hyundai have a very good reliability record, to the critics and whiners perhaps change your dealer, or maybe you were just unfortunate. Anyway value for the car speaks for itself as with my current Hyundai, I did my homework and will continue to drive the car and not the BADGE
