Pros: automatic headlights
Cons: Car doesn't run.
Advice: Don't do it.I have owned 14 cars in my life and this is the worst car I ever bought. The air conditioner did not work 2 summers in a row. I brought it in to be fixed time after time and after 2 years of no air they finally fixed it. The worst part is that the car is a danger on the road. Since I bought it it lurches forward when I stop at a traffic light or stop sign. It feels like I am being rear-ended. Then when I step on the gas the car lurches back and forth and will not go faster than 15 mph. Each time I bring it in they tell me that the cannot replicate the problem so they can't fix it. Of course the problem was replicated with one technician but they still did not fix the problem. The worst time was when I stopped to pay a toll on the highway and the car lurched back and forth in traffic. This has been going on for years. The answer from Hyundai headquarters in San Francisco is basically 'too bad'. The first time they told me to give the dealership another chance. This was after 2 years of 'trying'. The last call was ignored. This car is a danger on the road! Buy anything but this lemon. Of course they stopped making it. No wonder!
Pros: Looks and feels like a 'Jaguar'. It is an excellent buy for a Luxury car.
Cons: Nothing yet.
Advice: Test Drive one and you will see what I mean. It is full of options and has many of the things you find in much higher price luxury cars. Buy the 'L' Model !!I did a test drive and the car has great pick-up and a very smooth ride. At first, I was hesitant to but a 'luxury' car feom Huyndai. I did not think they could produce a quality luxury car. I was wrong. It is one of the best kept secret Luxury cars that you can buy.
