A customer said in a review, "We bought this car brand new from a Hyundai Dealership, around 25K miles the transmission needed to be replaced. Every time we needed to take the car to the dealership for maintenance at the same Hyundai dealership where we purchased it they wanted to charge an arm an a leg. As this was the very first new car we have ever owned we decided to take the car only to a Hyundai dealership ( where we bought it) to ensure the car was being well taken care of. The engine light turned on, took the car to Hyundai and was told the tune up would cost me $1800.00 KEEP IN MIND MY CAR HAS ONLY BEEN MAINTAINED AT A HYUNDAI DEALERSHIP. I will never purchase another Hyundai. If you got the money to spend on this car go for it, looks great on the outside but the machine is xxxx. Oh and I forgot to mention, I blew a tire, went to Hyundai and replaced it with some cheap xxxx because I didn't have the misfortune to pop all 4 TIRES."
