Advice for buyers

What should I look for in a used Hyundai Coupe coupe?

If you are tall, you might find that headroom is limited and cabin space feels cramped.

Check for rust around the sunroof and the tailgate, and for general paint touch-ups that can be hiding more serious issues underneath. The car is prone to the odd electrical glitch but it's not a regular offender. Most of these cars were bought privately - and have usually been well looked after. Finding a car with a decent service history should not be too much of a saga. If the suspension has been overworked, it can cause some problems, and if the gearchange feels unreasonably notchy you might want to have that investigated before parting with any cash. Either way, a good test drive will soon show if there are any problems. Likewise, check out the electrics, as the battery life is a little short and the central locking can malfunction. The sunroof can also be a little temperamental, tending to stick every so often.
