Bought the i800 in Sept 2013. I use it as a private hire car (taxi) and have converted it to 9 seats by fitting the i-load front passanger seat. I bought it with 32K miles on it and it has now done 87K. New pair of front discs at 66K, and that's been it! I service it every 10K & it's been the most reliable vehicle in the fleet. It gets a hard life in my line of work, but nothing ever goes wrong. Will definitely buy another one. Excellent product.

We'll house conversion makes this a great campervan! We are going all over the place in it - 67 nights so far and 31k miles in 18 months. Drives well and gets 35 mpg, under 2m high and is counted as a car for the ferry to France. Ideal to use for my daily commute too, as it is easy to drive and park. Great dealer service in Macclesfield.

This is a great practical vehicle, it will transport 8 people and luggage in comfort. The car has been very relaible, which cannot ever be said of the renaults we have owned. Dealer has been great, i will buy another one without hesitation and buy another hyundai without any reservation. This has been a great driving experience froma car that has been underated in the press.

The car / van is brilliant for what it is... I need 8 seats and the amount of room is vast! Clutch is light and easy. Currently getting 31 - 35 mpg. 31 in the snowy wet december. The vehicle won car tow-vehicle of the year 2009 - i have a caravan and it tows great on the road... However getting on and off or through camp-sites it is a disaster... Spinning, slipping and needing a tow, my self to get out off difficulties. But very comfortable on the long runs with or without caravan. Drivers seat could be more user friendly and adjustable. Driving position leaves me (@ 6' tall) constantly having to adjust my right leg on accelerator pedal, whilst keeping my toes pulled back off the pedal. I used to be able to relax in the rodius and my foot would rest on the pedal and not force it down. Now i have to hold my foot off the pedal.

Superb car for carrying everything you need on long distance journeys - in spacious comfort I might add. I have had a few problems with the car, first a drop link on the suspension which was replaced and fitted without question by a dealer, the aircon system has leaked, again being attended to by the same dealer and the door seal came off which again is being looked at. My biggest cause for concern is that it is now in the garage (dealership) as whilst driving into work, there was an extremely loud knocking noise coming from the engine on tickover, the RAC recovered it for me and have diagnosed that the flywheel is misaligned (?), my car has only done 16000 miles since new and is regularly serviced - I really hope that the fault is fixable under warranty (2 years remaining) otherwise I feel it will cost me an absolute fortune!

Major oil leak leading to recovery from the side of the road in rural France. A week to be recovered to main dealer UK. Another 10 days to look at it and provide a repair. No courtesy car. No information given by dealer.

I have now owned 7 hyundai's they are great value for money style and confort. They to me seem to have more than any other car included in the price and the aftersales is very good.
