Getting firsthand information from an actual car owner is one sure way to get an idea of car performance once it leaves the lot. Autobytel features real consumer reviews that give the unbiased experience of a car.
Pros: All the extras like the heated seats, tilting mirrors, and the sound system
Cons: No compass!
Advice: Shop around. I got mine for 5k below MSRP.What a pleasure to drive. I purchased this vehicle new recently and compared it to tons of other new cars. It was more than 10k less than the nearest competitor. Eveyone asks me what it is and then gawks. 'A Hyundai!?!' Yes! And it was only $XX,XXX! What a deal and everyone wants one now.
Cons: Excessive engine torque on takeoff. Old trick with underpowered cars. Its not needed the car is hot without it.
Advice: Consider adding 8yrs 100K bumper to bumper warrantee through Hyundai.This vehicle is outstanding. Compared just about everything else on the market and it always came out on top. Especially the price. Sure there are things that could be designed differently, but it is a mass marketed product. That's why pickups don't come with beermeisters! If you drive this car you will buy this car.
Pros: 5 speed auto/manual trans
Cons: No garage door transmitter
Advice: Compare features and price performance, test drive and you will buy!Drives, handles and rides like a much more expensive vehicle. Excellent on the highway and fun to drive. Snappy on take off and acceleration. Features and price performance are quiet attractive in comparison to other makes. No garage door transmitter. No six way auto seat for passenger. No memory set for steering wheel.
Pros: comfort , price and features
Cons: power outlet for cell phone
Advice: forget the BMW 's ,Lexus, Benz you'll pay way more for them, and get half the car the XG isShould be considered as a luxury class car, comparible to Lexus, BMW,or Benz but at half the cost with more standard features that would be optional on other cars. Great looks, handling, fuel mileage, comfort. Some people think it's a Jag, Warranty best in the industry. Service From my dealer (Mcconnell automotive in Mobile Al.) excellent in knowledge of vehicle.
Pros: The sport transmission and the quietness of the engine.
Cons: The limited tilt ability of the steering wheel
Advice: Don't think twice! Buy it asap!!!!!I found the test drive to be lots of fun! The way the vehicle handles is beyond belief. One would think they were in an expensive sports sedan with unknown power.
Pros: 5 speed transmission
Cons: Seats ar a little firm
Advice: Consider the 10 year 100,000 mile warrantyMuch better value than the competition, rides nice, and handled great on hilly Tennessee back roads. Plenty of passing power. Got 27 mpg on a 1000 mile trip through Tennessee and Kentucky at Interstate speeds with the AC running. Great trunk capacity. Great dealer service and support.
Pros: drive & ride & looks
Cons: no compass!!! Why can't there be a hook for garbage bag? Bumper paint scratches very easly!! Would like better gas mileage.
Advice: Don't go try one out if you don't plan to buy!! You will buy if you drive it!!!I took my son to see the next car, I thought, I would purchase after I got 100,000 on my 2000 Chevy Impala..(had 48,000 on it)....we drove the XG350L - we loved it ... I traded with in 2 hours!!!! Did not plan to trade!!! A perfect car! I like to show friends but do not tell them what it is -- they guess -- Jag? - some sports car? - A Ford product new Lincoln? - Then when we talk price and ride - everyone thinks everyone should have one!!
