Overall Score
Original owner, 124000km. For me this is a great city car, maneuverable, quick off the line up 50km (not even close to tire shredding but quick enough to beat the sleepy driver beside you). Easy on gas and a dream to park. It doesn't like the highway due to small engine and shortish wheelbase. 100Km/h is its happy place. Good traction in slippery conditions. Interior is comfortable and has held up well for 7 years. Maintenance has been very good. $.06 / km (all in). I would buy one again and I have recommended it to many others. Follow the maintenance schedule and you will have a very reliable car.

Safety Mfr
Issue: On certain vehicles, the engine's piston oil rings may be defective. This can cause engine wear that can lead to increased oil consumption. Eventually, this can create abnormal engine noise and the oil pressure warning light may turn on. If you continue to drive the vehicle with these symptoms, the engine could fail. Note: This only affects vehicles equipped with a 2.0 L Nu MPI engine. Safety Risk: A sudden loss of engine power could increase the risk of a crash. An engine failure could also create the risk of a fire. Corrective Actions: Hyundai will notify owners by mail and instruct you to take your vehicle to a dealer to inspect the engine. The engine will be replaced, if necessary. The dealer will also install a Piston-ring Noise Sensing System (PNSS) software update, to alert the driver of potential damage before an engine failure occurs.

On certain vehicles operated in areas of heavy road salt usage (Ontario, Quebec, New Brunswick, Nova Scotia, Prince Edward Island, and Newfoundland & Labrador), road salt can collect in the outboard portion of the front lower control arm and may result in internal corrosion leading to thinning of the steel in the lower control arms. In severe cases, the corrosion may progress to the point where the lower control arm's upper and lower panels become perforated. A perforated front lower control arm may fracture between its ball joint attachment and the forward and rearward pivot attachments to the chassis. This could result in a loss of vehicle control and a crash causing property damage, personal injury or death. Correction: Dealers will inspect and, if necessary, replace the front lower control arms. Should the control arms not require replacement, drainage holes will be added, as well as treatment with rust-proofing material to arrest the corrosion process.

On certain non- ABS vehicles located in Quebec, Nova Scotia, New Brunswick, Prince Edward Island and Newfoundland, after sustained exposure to temperatures below -30 degrees Celsius, the power brake booster diaphragm may lose elasticity. After the first application following a sustained period of non-operation at temperatures below -30 degrees Celsius, the reduced elasticity of the diaphragm prevents the brake booster vacuum valve from fully closing. Therefore, the booster is unable to replenish vacuum and braking assist is reduced. The brakes operate, but require higher than normal brake pedal application effort, which may result in increased stopping distances. Normal brake booster operation returns as the brake booster diaphragm becomes warmer, approximately 10 minutes after the engine is started. Correction: Dealers will replace the brake booster assembly.

On certain vehicles, a fuel vapour tube hose clamp may not be positioned properly. The spring-type hose clamp contains ears that may be squeezed together with a tool to increase the diameter of the clamp to allow it to be installed on the vapour tube hose. Hyundai's specification requires the vapour tube hose clamp ears to not be directed toward the fuel tank. If a vehicle contains a vapour tube hose clamp that is mispositioned so one of its ears is facing toward the fuel tank and that vehicle is involved in a severe high speed crash, the damage to the vehicle may cause the mispositioned clamp ear to damage the fuel tank and fuel spillage may occur. Fuel spillage in the presence of an ignition source may result in a fire. Correction: Dealer will inspect the position of the vapour tube hose clamp ears and will correctly position the clamp, if necessary.
