Advice for buyers
What should I look for in a used Hyundai Getz hatchback?
Hyundai has a reliability record that makes most manufacturers very jealous. Year after year, the Korean firm is one of the top performers in our reliability surveys, and is normally only beaten by Japanese manufacturers.
Our surveys have also found that on the rare occasion that something does go wrong, Hyundais tend to cost very little to fix and have lightning-quick repair times.
The JD Power customer satisfaction survey usually tells a similar story, with Hyundai always a banker for the top 10.
Hyundai knows how strong it is in this area, and that's why it has the confidence to offer an unrivalled five-year unlimited mileage warranty package. Because the scheme was introduced in September 2002, even the oldest Getz you'll find on the used market will have some warranty cover left.
Although very little goes wrong, it pays to be diligent. Some owners have reported noisy rear brakes, so keep an eye out for that.
