    My car

    Beware of this car, if your driving requires any degree of clutch control.The hydraulic system used and the very thin plates gives the clutch a very short life. Hyundai offer a two year warranty on clutches - but this does not cover general wear and tear. If a clutch is deemed to be 'burnt out' after sixteen thousand miles, within the two year warranty this will not be covered as it is not regarded as a manufacturing fault. I would expect, under normal driving conditions, that if a clutch burns out this fast - this would be down to a manufacturing fault. A Hyundai employee seemed to suggest that you approach a roundabout in neutral until you can judge which gear you should be in, rather than changing down to third. It has been suggested that brakes are so good now, that it is not necessary to use the cluch in the way that 'older' drivers have been taught! I do not use my clutch excessively and yet seems that I will have to pay a bill of £450 every 35000 miles, for clutch replacement! I have spoken to others about the Hyundai 5 year warranty. They do not think it is worth the paper it is written on because like me, they feel there are too many 'get out' clauses mostly attributable to general wear and tear. The Hyundai Getz is easy car to drive and cheap to buy. However, it is expensive to keep on the road and the 5 year warranty is not all that it seems. Parts do not last long – I’ve replaced brake discs and all lights in less than two years. I dread the 40000 service

    My car

    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?

    My car

    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.

    VERY HAPPY!

    My car

    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.
