    My car

    I have never owned a Hyundai, but after my Astra diesel was written off my father suggested buying one.

    After a 15-min test drive I was sold. Pretty much everything comes as standard and I got a very good deal at the time as this was a demonstrator with only 40 miles on the clock.

    The drive is very comfortable, and I am over 6ft and this does not seem to be any problem either after some adjustments.

    The build quality is very good with loads of storage and buttons to press. Not much road noise on motorways either, and I do over 70 miles per day on motorways. The performance of the diesel is great too, very quick compared to other models.

    I had to take it back to the dealer within the first week for an indicator issue. However, Hyundai sent me a hire car within the hour and the RAC (3 years free with Hyundai) picked my car up at the same time.

    Five star service in my opinion, and I have a further 5 years of this! The hire car was an 07 Astra, very nice car but I much preferred the i30 to be honest, and would not swap.
