$400/wk in gas?

I was literally spending 20 bucks a day in gas

work is 25 miles one way, 250 miles a week. . . 400.00 /mo in gas . . it was like having a car payment in gas alone.

Noooo take it back and wait for the turbo. It's supposed to get 27/38 city/highway @201hp

Congrats, yea the Forte did not look that great (I ended up buying the Optima) but your price the Veloster is a good choice. Does it have 140hp? I can't remember. I test drove the Sonata and was actually disappointed with what you got for the money,... but could have been the dealership.

the turbo version is supposed to get 177 hp according to everything i have read

ARK is developing a turbo kit for the car with expected numbers to be around 210 hp.

but honestly, im not looking for speed at all. . I have a motorcycle for that. Its strictly a gas saver

its 138, and only like 128 ft tq

its not very fast at all, and honestly, kinda sluggish coming out of first. 0-60 on it is like 8.8 seconds lol

but its fun to drive, handles nice, quiet inside the car, and the interior, options, and fuel mileage is really where this car shines, not so much the performance

i have a take home vehicle, but after 100k miles they auction them off and they havent bought me a replacement vehicle yet.

Ive been using my personal vehicle to run out to a precinct, then i pick up a loaner van from there. But what they give me for mileage dont really cover shit . . i use that money to pretty much eat out every day lol.

hopefully by sep, october there will be funding to buy me a new work van. But the state keeps pulling money from us so i cant really blame the sheriffs office

i just needed something that was better on gas, and my truck was getting pretty beat up anyway from pulling my boat.

as long as you got what you wanted. Hyundai's website claims 201hp for the turbo.

I actually like the way that looks. I might consider that as an alternative to a gti when if I decide to get a new car later this year. GTI's are just too expensive :-(. This car looks good in person too.

it looks alot better in person then video or photo.

if you want more power, hold off for the turbo version. . . or for ARK turbo

if you buy one now, just know ur basically getting a nice tech geek car with very modest power. The almost nonexistent cost of ownership is really what sold me.

So far, i really like it alot. its an awesome little commuter car and being a car audio guy, i absolutely love the head unit and its features

if anyone has the 7" hyudai display and needs help unlocking the head unit to play video off USB thumbdrives. . holler at me and i can send u instructions

i honestly never thought i would own a hyundai, if you asked me 2 years ago i would have laughed. .

but seriously, this car competes with the Honda CR-Z, and there really is no competition. The Veloster gets better fuel mileage then a fucking Hybrid and has a better warranty and more features

Anyone notice this trend with honda and hyundai. It almost seems like hyundai is what honda was 10-15 years ago. Now it appears that honda is going down hill and hyundai is getting better and better. All I know is, hyundai makes more new cars that I would drive than honda does.

sign of the times... korea can produce same quality for less (and not accounting for the major crap japan has been through the past few years), its just the rest of the world is catching up on it now. that being said, im pretty sure china will enter our markets soon

Not a bad little car. I like the interior and the front looks pretty good. The side view and backend looks a little strange to me. I see a number of people at work buying new Hyundais; they definatly have a lot more to offer for the price. I would consider buying a smaller car that gets better gas milage, but I only drive 25 miles each way to work 3 times a week. If gas does hit the $5 mark, this car may grow on me a bit.

Did you trade in your truck, or keep it for the boat?

Hyundai is picking up the old customer base that Honda abandoned. . in another 5 years or so. . im sure Honda will be a forgotten brand to me. . except for their bikes. . I prefer Honda motorcycles over suzuki, kawi, or yamaha
