It's not a brand new car but it drives smooth

I am not an every day driver but I will be using the car for majority of personal reasons. Back and forth to work, running errands

Second Hyundai I’be owned

I was impressed enough with my first experience with a Hyundai (2000), that I bought a replacement in 2017. I love it EXCEPT for the way too narrow space between the front seats and the center armrest/console. Bad design
