I bought my 2.2 CDX+ seven-seater auto in August 2007 when it was six months old.
Part of our decision-making process was influenced by reading these reviews and others which were all favourable.
The car has now done 10,000 miles and had its first service in March this year. We have been very pleased with it in general and it is excellent for towing our caravan.
Diesel consumption is between 18-35 mpg. Three weeks ago the air-con pulley sheared off the engine and the car has been off the road ever since while the dealer tries to get the necessary parts from Hyundai.
Their technical department says it needs a set of shims, while their parts dept says it doesn't.
The dealer is in the middle, unable to effect a repair owing to the lack of a set of shims.
There appears no answer on the horizon, so I have got the car back today with the air-con disabled and I'll wait for Hyundai to sort it.
What is the value of a five warranty if the suppliers cannot supply the spare parts? Our impression of Hyundai, needless to say, is now pretty tarnished and I would caution anyone thinking of getting Hyundai about the value of their warranty.
Like the previous review, I'm only getting 20 - 22 mpg with the auto transmission. Mind you my journeys are mostly short, stop and start type. On the couple of occassions I've managed a decent run, then I've achieved 35 mpg. I think it's fair to say that I'm disappointed with fuel consumption, in particular at todays prices. I've had the car for five months covering 2000 miles.
Other than that, I can only endorse many of the previous owners reviews, beautiful to drive, smooth and quiet and loads of room with a reasonable spec.
This was originally my third choice behind the Nissan Pathfinder and Kia Sorento. I was swayed finally by the 'readers reviews' and of course the 5 year warranty.
I have had the car 6 weeks and it is eating fuel – I'm getting18mpg or30mpg on motorways. The dealer cannot find fault and Hyundai tell me to run in for 2-3 thousand miles. What a load of nonsense. No new car needs that amount of running in. They are not interested .No other complaints. Anyone else got this problem?
I reviewed this car in November 2006. Now covered 30k miles. Just been for service at Hyundai dealer. Asked them to replace wiper blades - none in stock and no offer to get any! Laid back or what! I was interested to read others experiences of roof bars. The first time I used them (moved them on their runners that is) to take my son's bike to university the adjuster mechanisms broke - both. Hyundai dealeress (bimbo behind desk) accused me of jamming them and not covered under warranty. I pointed out that there is a 5 year warranty. Service Manager came out and said "accessories are not covered under warranty". I said they were manufacturer fitted. He said "are you sure?" I said you should know you sell the cars!! Anyway, booked it in. Went to pick it up at the end of the day and dealeress said "it needs 2 new roof bars and we haven't got them in stock". I said, yes I know, that's why it was booked in. Repeated all this one week later and eventually all sorted.
Mine has got through a set of tyres - fronts are worn on outer edge. Dealer said "needs tracking". Rears are worn less so but will replace all 4 together, not at Hyundai dealer.
Having said all this, I love the car. It is wonderful to drive - shame about the dealer. Nothing else has gone wrong, and there are no rattles and squeaks. It's right solid. Would recommend to anyone and am planning to buy another - is there a new (revised) model coming out soon, anyone know?
