"i have been driving Hyundai Excels for the past 10 years at least (two of them). Both were bought used. With regular suggested maintenance I've had very few issues with either one. They handle great in the snow with good tires. The only down fall i've noticed is that once you get up around 100,000 miles they will start to burn thru the oil. You have to check it fairly often. I wrecked mine last week or I'd still be driving it."
"Bought in excellent condition under 97000 miles. Within owning for 2 months however and reaching the 100kmiles mark my transmission started to go bad. It seems it is a problem with these vechiles and the price of rebuilding is outweighted greatly of the value of the car. All and all, good luck to you."
