    My car

    Have had my i10 since May and I'm very happy. But after doing just over 1000 miles have noticed a loud rattle from the front end when you go over rough or broken roads. Has anyone else had this problem? It has been fixed twice now by Hyundai, who say it is a lack of grease on the front caliper slides and the problem does go away for a few hundred miles. Other than this is a great little car. It's my second Hyundai.

    My car

    We’ve had our i10 Comfort for a couple of months now and have driven it for about 2500km (we live in Spain so all details will be in km/kph) and we must say we like it very much. We have taken it way out of its comfort zone heading into southern France some 4hrs from Barcelona “over” the Pyrenees and it copes quite well. Ok it struggles quite a bit on some hills and you have to be patient but once wound up it cruises along admirably. Luckily there are many two-line roads so cars can pass you easily. But my attitude is that if you buy a car with only 66bhp you have to drive it in an economical way and know that you won’t be overtaking much. But this is ok with us as even when we could go faster we toddle along enjoying the scenery! As for steering, brakes, suspension and general handling, I can’t fault it. The car gives the impression that it would stop on a stamp and the steering is very responsive and light. .

    My car

    This is a cracking little motor!

    Great spec: air con, remote locking, full electric pack(all windows and mirrors), air bags, alloys to name a few. Also power steering, which make parking and manovering and absolute doddle. You still get good feedback from the steering when driving, so on the right roads, you can still have a litte bit of fun with it.

    The driving position feels slightly elevated, giving a superb view of the road and all round visablity is very good owing to the large side mirrors. The dashboard layout is practical, all the right controls in all the right places. The radio/cd, it has to said, is excellent. Six speakers and a aux port, so you're able to hook up an iPod or MP3. I'm 6ft1" and have a comfortable driving position with room for a passenger behind. 3x3point seatbelts in the back, however I do wonder if 3 adults would be comfortable(unless they are Rita, Sue and Bob too that is). The boot space is ample with a handy stroage tray under the floor aswell. Not big enough for golf clubs but you can fit a moderate side suitcase,or a few bags of shopping. Rear folding back seats are simple and light to adjust and once down, I managed to fit a packed washing machine in with the boot closed. The engine is more than enough for town driving, sure it's not the fastest off the mark, but how many times do you really need hamiltonesque acceleration? On the motorway, which i do alot of between Leeds and Sheffield, it's perfectly happy at 70.

    My car

    This is an update to my earlier review. Two months and 2,500 miles on I'm still waiting for Hyundai to supply the parts for the air-bags and I still have a passenger seat that is coming apart. Apart from their lack of customer service this is a cracking little car. I average 48mpg, the air-con works better than in my Peugeot 206cc, steering is light and with discs all round it stops "dead"! Steering wheel, seats and gear-knob could be better quality but overall pretty good. I just wish someone at Hyundai would fix faults that should never have been there in the first place, never mind supplied to a customer.
