Pros: Ignition key location, it is on the dash, not on the steering columnThe only problem I have had is visibility of instruments in bright sunlight.
Pros: Downward rotating mirrors when car is in reverse
Cons: No audio controls on the steering wheel
Advice: Try itSmooth, quiet, good acceleration. Stylish inside and out. A good value compared to the competition. This car has a good, solid feel to it, and all the bells and whistles. People have a hard time believing it is a Hyundai. We almost bought a Sonata, but after test driving the XG-350, it was no contest.
Cons: no back rub for driver
Advice: buy itIn the XG 350 L, Hyundai has become the low cost leader for quality, comfort, luxury, performance and dependability. I was quite suprised by my enjoyment of ownership and the number of nice comments I receive about its styling.
Pros: Size of trunk and comfort of the interior
Cons: the sound the transmission makes
Advice: be sure to drive it sufficiently to see if the noise is there or notI am very happy with the car except for an irritating high pitched whine in the transmission in 2nd and high gears. (At 35 and 60 miles per hour. Has anyone else had this experience. Hyundai says that there is nothing wrong with the car and that they can't do anything about it.
Pros: The tilt down side mirrors
Cons: Needs more horse power, maybe 230.
Advice: Try one out and feel the differeceI traded a 02 model for the 04 and was surprised on much of a nicer car it was. The brakes, shocks and ride is so much better. The finish in and out is quality through and through. There isn't much wind noise at highway speeds. It has all the candy which I like, so for the money and the warranty, it's a bargain that other cars can't match.
Pros: I love the A/c on it
Cons: I am not a big fan of leather seats
Advice: Test drive itThis car runs smooth! No noise no bumps no nothing.. Great ride!
Pros: Driver's seat and outside mirror's memory.
Cons: Instrument panel is recessed and dark during daylight hours. Needs to be lit up so that it can be seen better.
Advice: Buy this car now. The low price and quality is great.Comfortable and has a smooth heavy car ride. Handle's much better than I anticipated and has plenty of pep. Great on trips. It comes fully loaded with only two options for the XG350L model. Those options are mud flaps for the rear wheels, and a 8 disc CD changer.
