Ioniq 2019 bad experience

Bad Experience overall - Ioniq 2019, repetitive suspension issue, column shaft replacement, and transmission replacement. This is the third time my car has to go for a warranty issue. 1. October 2019, an issue with the suspension with less than 6K miles and in less than 6 months. Defective right rear shock, that was replaced. 2. March 2020, second service, again an issue, this time with a defective speaker that was replaced 3. February 2021 (three more issues on my third visit) Two major issues identified, with 21K miles. Steering wheel column/shaft replaced. The transmission will need to be replaced. Due to a grinding noise upon deceleration. It sounds terrible. - and, again the same suspension issue in the rear back with a popping noise coming from the rear right, that technicians and service team hasn't been able to identify the problem. I am not happy at all with my purchase, when I took the decision to buy a new car was because I didn't want to deal with stress, discomfort, and worries about my family's safety. I don't think this is normal for a car with less than 2 years of use, and less than 22K miles.


Car is not good

I liked when I first bought check engine light keeps coming on don't buy one .would be better if you bought a peddle bike I always buy hydai and these is the first junk car I have bought from them and I always buy new ones


Car was love at first sight

Driven the car for 2 years almost 3 and it is great, not the best mileage as advertised, 45-50mpg average vs advertised up to 65MPG and I am a very efficient driver.


Love my Ioniq!

I thought I would always drive a Prius, but when the body was redesigned, I started looking for another hybrid. A friend of mine drives a Hyundai and she likes it so I started looking at the Ioniq. It's super sporty, has all the bells and whistles, and gets great gas mileage.


Got a Leftover 2019 PHEV During COVID its Fantasti

Fully loaded 33k Sticker New 26K after Net Cost State $1500 Rebate Fed $4500 and Covid dealer incentives. Great standard warranty for peace of mind. Handles well. Love the torque in EV mode quicker than most think especially off the line. Owned 6 months filled up Gas only once and I'm averaging 200 MPG-e after 5 months of use 98% EV-Mode. Oil/Filter changes every 2 years @ 10K miles per year with majority EV-mode use. This car is gonna last! When you shut the doors they're Solid which exudes quality. Paint Job only Fair not Great tho. Hyundai only a hair behind Toyota in quality but a great choice for Value! Very pleased with my first Hyundai. Next vehicle will be FULL EV in 5-10 years. Big oil is doomed!


Not sure about the reliability yet

So far fuel mileage has gone up into the 50 mpg range which is good considering how much it will be driven yearly really like the warranty


Best gas mileage

Great gas mileage (51 mph in city)! Leg room is good as well as cargo area in back. A car stopped suddenly in front of me and my car automatically stopped as well, preventing a wreck!


Transmission is a little wonky@

Overall its OK. tends to hang up in high RPMs. Have to put it in sports mode frequently to keep it from over revving Fun to drive


So far so good

I’ve only owned the car a week but have Putin 1500 miles. Even though it’s only got 3500 miles I’m already seeing the fuel economy I was hoping for...61 mpg in an Iowa winter is excellent. Drives great, happy with my purchase


Gets Great MPG!

Gets great MPG, range, and comfort ratings! Interfaces well with Apple Car Play and Android Auto. A little tight in the back, but definitely a great car to own! My biggest issue has been with Hyundai corporate, the Hyundai dealerships, and using any warranty the car comes with. VERY frustrating. Other than that, it's a great car (except for the absurd amount of orange peel in the paint).
