We inherited this exact car [Mesa Red]. I was prepared to hate it, nobody I know drives a Hyundai. Was I surprised! It does everything well, you sit high, good ride, feels spacious inside, seats are easy to fold down. Lots of safety features for the money. V-6 engine has a nice-sounding growl, sounds more powerful than it is. Acceleration is average but adequate. Parks in small spaces, is nimble. OE BF Goodrich tires transmit a little more road noise than I like, but there is no wind noise. Solid, tight car. Visibility over right shoulder to rear is compromised by the pillar. Window in tailgate opens separately, good for stowing groceries or in tight places.
Well built, low cost, sips gas

Very roomy and comfortable. Great value for price and warranty. Rides well and quiet. Hyundai is the new Chevy without the Government Motors nameplate and high costs. Very cheap to insure. Get a mini-SUV for a compact car price.
This a great little SVU with great features that is so easy to drive. It has a super tight turning radius that makes it so easy to park and get in tight spaces. I live in the south were it is warm most of the time but the seat warmers are great anytime. they feel good on your back during a long drive or after a long shift at work. Hyundai got this car RIGHT.
