I bought this car to replace a Honda Insight hybrid car which I had for 6 years with no trouble at all. I went for the Hyundai Ioniq plug in Hybrid because most of my journeys are to and from work and the distance is only 6 miles each way. This means I could go to work and back on electric power all the time and plug in at home. The car is comfortable and was quiet until it developed an annoying rattle on the tailgate. It went back to a Hyundai garage four times before finally they changed the tailgate latch. This seemed to have solved the rattle but it is starting to appear again. Then I wanted to adjust the wing mirror at night and noticed the backlight in the door panel switches was not working so I could not see any switches. it is back to Hyundai again to have this fixed. Overall, I'm very disappointed by the build quality of this car. It has spoiled the excitement of having a new car as it has been back to the garage five times in 6 months so far.
