I had one a couple of years ago and hated it. I never felt safe in it and it was brand new. My husband ended up in a little fender bender in it and it totalled the car. It literally should have been a $600-$800 accident and it totalled the car. If you're going to buy a Hyundai, buy a used one because they drop SO much once they're off the lot, more than many other cars.

I have a Sante Fe, this is my 2nd one. I love it. It is great on gas and I run my car pretty hard. Good Warranty too. What type of Hyundai are you looking for?

We have a 2005 Elantra and we love it. The gas mileage is great, the warranty is great, and it has great safety features. We researched it thoroughly before we bought it with Consumer reports, Car and Driver and lots of other sources, and they all had good things to say about the car.

I can say exactly the same thing about our Sonata. I bought it this past May...it's a 2005, with 3 yrs. left on the warranty, which covers everything. We also thoroughly researched these cars, and they were highly recommended by all sources, particularly Lemon-Aid.

My daughter has an '06 Sonata and loves it. It's the "Accord' or "Camry" type model with more features but lower cost. We did a lot of research before we bought it new and it was a fantastic value. She has 20000 miles now and still is totally satisfied with it. It's a really nice car, with a great warranty at a great price.

Hyundai has come a long way since the early days. I bought one of the first Hyundais in '86, and although a good value even back then, it had transmission problems. I'd say it was something of a lemon.

best regards, lm

I agree Hyundai has come a long way, John's friend had an old Hyundai and he told what a POS it was.

My Sante Fe looks similar to a Lexus at 1/2 the price.

DUDE!! My Aunt is on her 2nd or 3rd Sante Fe and I just drove it when I went to visit it and LOVED IT!!!!!!!! It's WAY easy to drink and park, really comfie, great interior design and great for sort people!!! I'm 5'1" so it's seriously hard to find a car that fits me AND her hubby is 6'5" and he loes drivin it and says his is way comfie too! They have matching ones. I would look into buying one if i didn't line in the city!!! She has been so happy with her Sante Fe and she also had some 4 door car they make too....it sort of looks like a Lincoln and she LOVED it. Good luck with your car shopping! How fun!

We had an Accent and we really liked it. We named it Zippy because it could whip right into small parking spots. That was a great car. We bought it for 6300 almost new, and sold it for 6000 about 6 mos later!

You're looking for Hyundai info, but Saturns are the best car for the average Joe that I know of. Anybody I know who owns a Saturn has not been disappointed. I bought a '92 saturn SL (2nd owner) and I have over 270,000 miles on it with the original engine still in it. I also get 40 miles per gallon and it's not a hybrid :D . I am going to sell it though and buy the same make and model, but this time with power windows and doors and AC. Saturns are hearty little cars - in my opinion :D

Yes, Saturns are great...but right now money is the issue. Saturns cost more than Hyundai - and that's WITH my GM discount......what does that tell ya?

Everyone I know always has problems with their Saturns, they are always in the shop.

Here is another Hyundai's, the tires last forever and so do the brakes.

Everything I go to the garage to get the oil changed (I do it at my dad's friends place) we always try to rotate the tires and check the brakes and they always look brand new. My Sante Fe is always on the road.

My sister has a 04 Huyndai and it is a POS. Its a 4 door. She was having problems with the tranny within 3 months of getting it. It would suddenly downshift while driving on the freeway. She would take it int to the shop and they would tell her nothing was wrong with it. She had to have it towed to the shop 2 times within the first year because of the tranny. The warranty has since expired and it needs a new tranny. It is sitting at my parents house, she is going to sell it, as is.

On another note, my ex rear-ended a 07 huyndai doing about 20 m.p.h. and totaled the car. He had minimal damage to his mini van. (broken headlight, cracked plastic grill and damaged bumper). With her car the whole trunk was smashed into the back seat. The car was totaled, it also was a 4 door model.

Couldn't get me to drive one let alone buy one.

They now have a 10 year/100,000 mile warranty...or is this bogus?

We would use the Hyundai for in-city driving not highway driving: would this make the difference?

Angie: Please describe the accident: rear ended? Broadsided?

P.S. to all: I am so naive. I at first thought POS meant : Positive and I couldn't figure out how the word "positive" made any sense within the context of what you'all were saying.... Then I thought about it and laughed so hard when I realized what it REALLY meant....

Both of my cars had that warranty. They honor it as long as you keep up on the maintence. So you have a book which is maintence log and you always should record oil changes and such. Especially if you do not have them done at Hyundai. I always have mine done at other garages.

I drive a Santa Fe, I love it, my only regret is that I got a 4 cylinder manual - no power whatsoever.

Not that I was looking for a fast ride, I mostly use it for local in-town driving, but automatic would be way better. Luckily my lease is up in February 2009 so I may consider another one with a 6 cylinder automatic. I don't find them that great for traction either - we have a lot of snow in Toronto (major storm today), and I was swerving all over the place.

I also find the trunk space a bit deceiving. There is really not that much space. I guess other than groceries there really isn't room for much more.

The quality is good and I haven't had to service it much in the past 4 years except for oil changes and brakes.

Good luck.

He rearended someone at about 10mph. He was barely moving. Scary,huh? Can you imagine if he would have actually been going faster? I was actually happy he totalled it because I HATED that car. I had problems with it since I got it. Actually, the first one I got was a lemon and they had to exchange it. The second one ran long enough that I couldn't have claimed lemon. It had many problems though, just stupid little stuff mostly. It was annoying though considering I purchased it brand new. I would never, ever, ever by a Hyundai again. The Santa Fe's are nice looking, but I just wouldn't dare after my experience.

Read the fine print of that 10,000 mile warranty. Not everything is covered.

    What are your iron results?  Was ferritin (iron stores) taken?  Are you actually anemic (low hemoglobin)?  The results you posted are your Immunoglobulins.  Looks like your IgE is high, but then it is Spring and allergy season is supposed to be pretty bad this year (at least in the US).  What riggers your allergies (e.g. cats, horses, mold, etc.)? Have other autoimmune issues been ruled out that could cause tendinitis or vertigo?    
    The EMA test is the most expensive of the celiac blood tests because it is not machine run, but done by humans.  A lab mistake could have been made.  With negative genes, the rest of the panel and symptoms eliminated, chances are you do not have celiac disease, but you can always get retested in six months, if you have symptoms or think celiac disease could be an issue.   Making dietary changes can have adverse reactions to anyone.  Consuming too much of a good thing can easily make you sic
Hey there ! hope all is well for you.  I’ve been struggling with all sorts of tenidinitis and vertigo issues so I haven’t been on the computer much, but I would love any advice if possible. I have been on a very strict gluten free diet for 6 or 7 months. Still have low iron and just got results back. Would love your opinion. I prepare all food myself except once where I was likely glutened. I am seeing haematologist next week, but I was wondering what you think. Parasites have been eliminat
