Pros: Awesome Infinity system, very comfortable ride, head-turning styling.
Cons: Blind spot, Michelin tires will wear FAST.
As a previous owner of a 1998 Turbo AWD Eagle Talon, I wanted to find something somewhat comparable when that vehicle started to show some age. I had a few friends who owned Hyundai's and I must admit the warranty played a MAJOR part in the overall decision. My car was on the showroom floor at Hampton Hyundai in Hampton, NH it was a "demo" (this usually means a senior member of the sales staff or the Manager is using the vehicle). It had about 3,000 miles on it and the sticker price was about 20k...they let it go for 16,500. I was astounded at the features that Hyundai fit into this price range. Standard was A/C and power windows, locks, cruise, etc. Not to mention the five year bumper to bumper warranty and roadside assistance. Extra options which I think mostly make up the GTV6 package included Leather Interior, Infinity 300 Watt system with subwoofer in the hatch, power moonroof, ABS Brakes, four air bags, heated outside mirrors, and 17" Michelin Sport tires which I might add are NOT winter tires. I bought four 17" Bridgestone Blizzaks and another set of wheels and put the Blizzaks on the Hyundai rims and the Michelins on the aftermarket Italia wheels. The car goes through snow like a hot knife through butter.
All in all I am very impressed with the initial quality of the car and hope Hyundai will find it in their hearts to make a supercharged or Turbo model.
