Would have been 100% except for headlight issue
I love my venue! However I just found out that when you have a headlight out you have to take it to a dealer you can’t just do it yourself! And it wouldn’t be so bad if they had the part in stock which they don’t. Not one dealer in San Diego had the part in stock! And of course my headlight went out on the weekend. So it takes 3 to 5 days for me to get a headlight fixed. Every other car I’ve owned I fix the headlight myself. I’m risking getting pulled over by driving at night with one headlight. You’re not supposed to it’s illegal; that’s why you get a ticket. And the hassle of getting pulled over who wants that? Another question is why did the head like go out after eight months? I’ve had cars for four years that I never had to replace the headlight. Good thing is it’s covered under warranty, and that is the only good thing about the headlight on the Hyundai venue. I don’t know when The warranty is over for the headlight, I think she told me it was three years or 36,000 miles. Good thing it happened now. But still I like to know why did my headlight go out after eight months? I’d like someone to answer that question. Does anybody know? Even if I had my lights on night and day for eight months it shouldn’t have gone out!
Finally, your money's worth.
Own a 2021. The car is perfect for its niche. Great around town and in secondary roads. Interstate - well, it keeps up with traffic. On secondary roads I routinely average 39-41 MPG @ 65mph. Its a good car for the times. I take several 5 hour trips to Tampa a year. And it always performs well. Just a bit more grunt would be good. But then, I didn't buy a PORSCHE.
Living my new car!
I needed a car that was not to close to the road or not to high that we had to climb into it. My mom has a broken hip so the purchase needed to fit her as well as our budget. The Venue is exactly perfect for all our needs.
