    My car

    Since my last review I have had no problems, and car is going well

    On a recent 400 mile round trip, I did one stretch of around 100 miles averaging 60MPH, and I got 69 to the gallon, even with the air-con on. That was impressive.

    Car is comfortable on long trips, so well done Hyundai

    My car

    A great car to own. It is very quiet at motorway speeds and economical. It can be a bit bouncy in town with the stiff suspension. I had the suspension looked at twice since I bought the car in Novenber last year due to knocking from one wheel. A known fault with this model. The car is only a year and half old. Would I reconmend the car? A good alternative to a BMW, without the snob value, but better value and equipement.

    My car

    12 months & just 8000 miles, car need new wiper arm as wiper smears(blade i fine)new steering column(creaks)and washer pump(operate rear wash & front also operates). Service & insurance costs are very high, fuel economy is good though, dealer service is shocking, glad the car has 5 year warranty. Its a cheap car, but cheap for a reason.

    My car

    I bought this car as a year old demonstrator with less than 3000 miles at under £11000 (I would never buy new again!) and am really impressed. Having owned two Hyundai Getz and covering 80000 miles in four years, I knew about Hyundai reliability but we wanted a bigger, more comfortable car mainly for commuting. It is comfortable, quiet, well built and has more than adequate real world performance. The surprise was its economy though. I registered an overall 46 mpg with my diesel Getz but am obtaining a continuous 50 mpg with the i30 on mixed urban and main road driving. This went up to 54 mpg on a trip to Wales. I think this is because of the greater flexibility of this engine. Hyundai certainly know how to get you hooked as a customer, as I have found that, for my motoring needs, I could not afford to look elswhere. They had better watch their service though as two months after purchase at a non local dealer, despite loads of calls and promises, we still haven't received the missing locking wheel nut spanner and spare key, making every journey a worry. (perhaps one disadvantage of not buying new!)
