"Just made first major repair -- new radiator -- at 204,000 miles. Only other non-routine time in shop was for a stalling recall in 2002. Best vehicle we've ever owned. Only wish back seats would fold completely flat."

Pros: "Inexpensive compared to similar, reliable for 9yrs"

Cons: "fuel inefficient, stopping power"

Likely to recommend this car? (1-10): 8

"After 92k miles and 9 years, I've had no major issues. One of the cruise control buttons broke off and the headlights are just starting to get foggy. My only real complaints are that the vehicle is a little lacking in stopping power for one so heavy (I always stay well back and start stopping early) and the fuel efficiency is terrible. This was my second Hyundai purchased new and driven for about 9 years and I'm about to buy my third. I've either been very lucky, or Hyundai builds decent, inexpensive cars."
