Upscale car not at Upscale pricing.
October 9, 2007
My wife and I sat in in the XG300 when they first came out and we were very impressed with the car.
Though we initially purchased a 2002 Buick LeSabre and really liked that car, at 59,000 miles some little things were going wrong.
We were initialy looking at replacing the Buick for something that cost less per month with at least the same amount of features.
We were not even planning on purchasing at the time we did. This car was not our my "list". This car impressed us so much and the price was so good it met our requirements and it has MORE features than the LeSabre did.
That was a year and half ago. No problems at all. We call the car Junior because it looks like a small Lincoln or Small Infniti. I rated the handling as a "3" because this is Luxury Car, not a sports sedan, it handles well for its market. Most people do not even know it is a Hyundai. Using parking garage in NYC, we get compliments from the attendants all the time.
"Nice Car", "Looks and feels like Jaguar inside"
"Feels like a Lincoln, but nicer" , my favorite is
"This is a Hynundai?!"
Comfortable, good gas mileage. On recent long trip, I found it's optimum cruising speed (67MPH) and it returned 31MPG on the highway, consistently.
The interior controls and layout are very easy to understand and use. The memory seats are a plus! The sound system is very good. And the wood grain is better than some more expensive cars.
Over all a vey impressive automobile. I would reccomend this car to any one who is looking for entry level Luxury car and not the price of the others!
