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.

Great little car. The N Line version feels nippy – it's not sporty but it has all the power you need to feel comfortable in any situation. It is happy on the motorway as well as on country roads and in town. On motorways it feels bigger than it is and there's not too much wind noise or buffeting when overtaking HGVs. On country roads, the handling is good (not great but perfectly acceptable). In town, the turning circle is amazing and it is easy to park. I am getting good fuel economy too – around 50mpg depending on the journey. The best thing is the wireless Android Auto connectivity. I love that I don't have to plug my phone in to use navigation and that the map will always be up to date. Downsides? No heated seats or steering wheel on the 2022 model. My only real complaint is that you can't set the lane keep assist to the lane departure warning mode (or turn it off) permanently. You have to change it or turn it off every trip, which is annoying because it is a little over zealous and can't cope with lane merging. Overall though, that's not much to complain about.
What's the one thing you like most about your car?
Too much to mention!
If you could improve one thing, what would it be?
Lane keep assist
