bought at 31000 mls 2 1/2 yrs old after 3 weeks diesel high pressure pump went thank god for warranty would have been £500! then week later replaced waste gate valve on turbo as car wouldn't drive above 2000 revs. seemed to improve performance and on steady 60 mph 300 ml round trip did 69 mpg. However round local area rural and twice weekly trips of 15 ml each way with careful driving only seems to do about 44 mpg dissapointing this day and age. nice car handles well roomy for size not that noisy ins. not dear. Dealers very obliging came out when I had second problem, no quibble. any one any views on economy?
Ive just changed over from a 1.1 gsi 3door to the 1.5 crtd cdx+ 3door. its the top of the range for a getz and its very nice. engine is more powerfull than the 5 gsi diesel which makes it very usable. nice interior upgrades including leather wheel and gearnob. air con, trip computer, heated mirrors, sunroof, bla bla bla.. its got alot more power than any of the petrol engines and also delivers nearly 70mpg if your careful on the motorway.
This is a cracking little car. Cheap to buy, and runs for ages on a tank of fuel. 60 mpg on a long run. Boot size excellent for a small car - holds contents of a large supermarket trolley with no problems. Sits along quite happily on the motorway once you reach cruising speed.
Downside is poor overtaking ability and need to use gears more on steep hills, but you can't have it all ways! Highly recommended if you aren't worried about overtaking everything on the road.
Car ran OK for first 8 months, then had trouble with engine not running correctly. Dealer had vehicle back approx 8 times saying yes there was a fault and then no there wasn't one. Hyundai UK stated it was a characteristic of the car, yet an independent report done on the vehicle stated there was a problem. Car was not fixed. Dealer OK when everything going fine but very unhelpful when problems occur. Hyundai UK awful. Warranty isn't worth the paper its written on. Do not buy one of these cars. Fuel consumption awful. Have had two Fiat Punto's in the past and these are a much better car.
