Buy this car

It's a reliable and fantastic little car. Parts are cheap and easy to find. I bought mine with 106,000 miles and I'm on 121,000 with no problems other than basic maintenance ie brakes, headlamps. It's surprisingly zippy, being small with great handling. And the gas, oh the sweet gas. Its a saver for sure!

Most Reliable Car I've Owned

Excellent commuter car, but the seats could be a little more comfy. I own a 5 speed manual and it's very easy to drive and gets great gas mileage despite how it's driven. 30 MPG at $20-$30 fill ups. Depends where you get gas but overall great deal. This Hyundai is mechanically sound and I would definitely get another.
