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: Body styling
Cons: little thing, no outside temperature sensor
Advice: put masking tape over the name plate and test drive it... it feels like a Baby BenzI just traded a Volvo S70 for a 2005 Hyundai XG350L. Frankly, it's a smoother, better riding car. It may not have the cornering grip of the Volvo, but it sure outclasses the 'brick' in creature comforts. Best of all, the XG350L was the cost of a used 2003 S60 with 20,000 miles on it. When the S60 warranty is history, this car will still have years left (I took the optional 100K bumper to bumper zero deductable policy). Frankly, I don't care if it doesn't hold up (and I fully expect that it will) as long as they give me a loaner car and it costs nothing to fix broken parts... that's their problem. This car seems to be the best luxury deal out there.
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.
Cons: stereo system.
Advice: at least call John at Fox. He beat everybodys price.by far the most car for less than 25,000. Every thing is standard no extras.I would recomend John at Fox Hyundai in Grand Rapids.
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: Heated seat warms not only your ass, but your back, too. Memory seats control the rear mirror with your seat. you will see these features on Lexus or above.
Cons: I don't know
Advice: Buy L version. You already saved A LOT for buying this car, so don't cut your budget here. You get the best heated seat and fastest controlled sunroof on the market.I personally think this car is too cheap for what it is. Definately it worth the price. You will get much more than what you pay for it. May be Toyota Avalon or Acura TL are a little bit better, but they are way over expensive. I just don't know what you would think of it when you drive this car. Just do a test drive in the nearest dealershop. You will feel like you are in a Lexus. I really love it.
