Advice: don't do it.I test drove the XG350L and there was so much engine noise I turned around and took it back to the salesman. He got another which was a little bit better but still noisey. He told me that it might take a little bit before it warms up and quiets down. I walked away. Also, I got the impression that it was a cheap imitation and that the quality was poor.
Pros: side view mirrors go down when in reverse
Cons: cannot move music to the back seats
Advice: great value for car - bought it in AlexandriaCar drives smoothly and handles well.
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.
Cons: Too much engine torque on takeoff. You have to press the accelerator with care or suffer the consequences of replacing front tires earlier than expected.
Advice: Test drive the XG350LBefore going to the Hyundai dealership, we tested the Toyota Camry, Honda Accord and VW Passat. At the Hyundai dealer, we looked at the Sonata and the Santa Fe, but after test driving the XG350L, and after comparing it feature for feature and price against the other cars we tested, we had to buy the XG350L. This was an excellent car for the money !!
Pros: memory setting for the husband and wife as it relates to the seat
Cons: poor shifting response
Advice: Make sure you buy the car for at least $5500 under retailThe car still feels like shifting when it doesn't have to. I recognize that the car has no cables from pedal to engine. The response should be more refined. There is some wind noise and the michelin tires should be 17inch for the weight of the car. How can a 3600 lb. car have the same tire size as the Sonata at 400 lbs less. The engine has sufficient power, but has to be reprogrammed to push it. Materials used in the car have a quality feel to them. The car needs: 17' rims,daytime running lights,when door is unlocked the interior lights should come on for safety, third stop light should pulse, and the sterio needs more dynamic sound.
Advice: compare specs& features with price!!!i bought my xg-350l last may 19, of this yearand without a doubt the best car buying decision i've made. it has all the bells& whistles standard and guess what sports fans it has has something standard that 'Infinity' does'nt - rear ac!!! not so on the 'Infinity I-35' feature for feature it has everything a 'BMW -Acura - Audi - Honda - Camry and the list goes on and on!!!! I'm enjoying my Hyundai!!!!!! tremendously!!! do yourself a favor and test drive the 'XG-350 - feeling is believing-Maynard Charlotte,NC
Pros: The leather interior
Advice: Driving is believingSo much car for the money. The test drive was very surprising. Although I've owned other Hyundai's, I was very please with the style and comfort of the XG350L. I can't say enough about it.
