Pros: "a blast to drive"

Cons: "not a lot of interior room for people"

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

"This has been the most fun car to drive. I bought it new and it has had all the power and performance you could want in a 4 cylinder. It has been extremely reliable and affordable to maintain. This would NOT be a good car for a larger or taller person. The driving compartment fits like a cockpit and not a lot of leg room in the back seat. The hatchback and fold down seats allow for almost anything you want to haul. If they still made this car I would buy another one tomorrow."

12 yrs old she still looks & runs like new. Have 4 Hyundai's but this 1s my favorite.

"Wife got me this 4 our 25th anniv.in '01. Loved it from day 1. Very fast accel, turn ratio excell. GREAT sound system (6 spkrs). 1st repair yr 6 when trannie broke - fixed under extend. warranty. Engine still great after 150G! Use car 4 work: holds all my tools, a lil'Giant ladder,+food coolers. Built 2 last w/best parts i.e. platinum spk plug wires & many components sealed.Fun 2 drive - got orangey-red color -still looks new despite 12 Cleveland winters. SAFE car: guy plowed into car @light & HE had 90% of damage. Only downsides r hard 4 tall folks 2 fit in & deer like it 2...3 so far've run into/jumped on top. LOL Plan 2 keep it long as I can. Paid $12,900-comes to ~$1G/yr 4 great car! [Wife's friend bought same car, same color & still looks/drives like new w/0 breakdowns.]"
