Review
Terrible Car From Day 1, I've had an issue with it drifting to the left and uneven tyre wear. Tracking tested and adjusted several times. Eventually an independent garage tracked the problem down to rear wheel castor - but it was there was no adjustment and by the time the problem was identified Hyundai classed it as 'wear and tear; and refused to fix. Headlamp adjusters would suddenly and inexplicably operate for no good reason - replaced under warranty. ABS system failed twice, once under warranty and once while out of warranty. Rear hatch struts failed and had to be replaced. Finally got rid of it when it was taken in for a routine service and came back with an estimated repair bill of £7000 for a new clutch, gearbox, ABS unit and Air conditioning pump. Heap of trash.
