My Hyundai Trajet is the 2.0-litre CRDi model. It has now done 26,000km and is eight months old.
I like it so much - this is my first time buying a Hyundai, and it does a good job. The only problem is the horn - I hate it. It doesn't work very well. I have had it changed three times.
I would also suggest that air-bags should be standard - only a few types of car in Taiwan don't have air-bag protection.
I have the 2.0-litre GSI auto on the Motability scheme. There's loads of room, it's quiet and for a family of four, it's great.
Sure, it's a bit noisy when you put your foot down hard, but besides that, it's great. It pulls up hills with no problem, whether with a light or full load.
On the motorway, I find it quiet, and gives off the same noise as I got from my Peugeot 206. For the price (£16,000), it's far cheaper than many of its rivals of the same size.
I find the car is nice for cruising but if you have a full load and are going uphill, watchout!
The pulling power is not great - sometimes even with a light load you will have to use first gear on an incline.
In winter I find that the heating, when directed towards the feet, is pretty poor - the heat seems to go everywhere else but down!
Also the car suffers somewhat from road noise.
I have had since Oct 04 a new CDDT SE Trajet with all the trimmings, I have covered 9000 miles and been very pleased with the comfort. The family love the car and the space, and my wife prefers it to her DTI Zafira.
Overall: a fine car very good value for the money with a five-year warranty, I would recommend this car.
Gripes: yes! Engine's noise at 70mph-plus. The car needs a 6th gear for motorway use
