Great used car

I bought my car as used from the dealer. I have had no issues so far with it. The radio and heater work better than my old Toyota Corolla.


Frequently Stolen

Purchased used as Certified PreOwned with 30K miles. One week later it was stolen. Subsequently learned that this car is one of the most frequently stolen cars by teenagers. Something called the "Hyundai / Kia challenge" is a nationwide issue. Apparently Someone knowledgeable about stealing cars posted a step by step video on TikTok showing kids how to break into and hot wire these cars in 5 minutes or less. These cars with the old style manual key (not push button) can easily be stolen using an inexpensive common computer cable which simply plugs into a couple outlets. I think the rear windows may also not be wired into the cars security system. Hyundai has not issued a recall and collision shops across the country are backed up repairing these cars, parts are hard to get due to the number of stolen cars. Repairs might take a couple months due to shortage of parts.


Problem with the car and it's new. Only 54000 mile

I bought the car off a used car lot. It had $54,000 miles on it. I drove it to Louisiana and back and realized it was a half a quart low on oil. Took it back to the dealership and they can't find out what's wrong with it. But other than that overall experience is great.


Highly recommend Hyundai's best value in automobil

This car was absolutely the best value for the dollar compared to the Accord Camry Mazda 6 and other Asian competitors this is my second Hyundai and these cars are well built reliable and an incredible value overall also a friend of mine is a mechanic and explains to me that these cars are easy to work on easy to diagnose easy to repair and parts are relatively inexpensive my opinion you cannot go wrong with a Hyundai


Best Car ever !

I've had over 44 cars, trucks and Vans both Foreign and Domestic and this is the Best overall. I recommend this car to anyone presently looking for a Great Used car.


Funday Hyundai

Love my pre-owned car! Handles well on the road. Took it to CT and back to NH this weekend and it was so smooth. So far so good!


Great car low mileAge cheap notes

So far this car has exceeded all my standards I had set out for my price range. My insurance and payments are low enough and I love it


Can't get much better than this!

I was cross-shopping this car with the Kia Optima and this was the clear winner. For the same price as the Kia, you're getting some great features. Key features include dual automatic climate control, apple car play, push-button start, and a heated steering wheel. To get a heated steering wheel on a $24,000 car is unheard of! The feature I enjoy most is the remote climate control from the mobile app. It's so convenient. I'm not sure how I will ever live without it! I owned this car for a little over a year and driven it about 8,000 miles with no issues. The ride quality is great! Not too soft and not too stiff. A nice balance. The 2.4 four-cylinder engine will surprise you. It's not a race car, but it has enough pep around town and passing power on the highway. The interior is surprisingly roomy. The trunk could be a bit bigger but that's the price you pay for some good interior room. I'm about 5'10 and I can fit comfortably in the driver's seat with a rear-facing car seat behind me. The perfect family sedan in my opinion! The only thing this car is missing is LED headlights. The halogen projectors are still pretty good. Overall this car is a winner! With Kia and Hyundai killing it right now who needs an overpriced Honda or Toyota?!


Car is far ahead of others which great safety feat

Great car good gas mileage lot of features. No issues so far and have 20,000 miles. Always been serviced at Pugi dealer who has treated me and the car very responsibly.


Very satisfied, but wish I'd known more

We have enjoyed this vehicle and it has performed admirably. I was sad to learn that there was a class action involving the engine in our particular car (2.4 L), but our dealer has performed the appropriate software update, and we hope to enjoy many, many more years in this car.
