Overall reliability

The vehicle that's given me the most satisfaction of any car I've ever owned.

First things first, I absolutely love my silver i800!

Things I like:

1. Timing chain, not belt
2. Being up high not only gives the illusion of safety, but improves visibility
3. Exclusivity (yes really!) How many are in your street?
4. Space (it's an extremely versatile vehicle to own)
5. Performance - 168bhp, but more importantly lots of torque (you would be very surprised once it gets going!)
6. Reliability
7. Overall cost of ownership is low (remember it seats 8 people, so it should really be compared to owning two smaller cars)
8. Great heater and air con
9. Interior mood lights
10. Seems durable, especially the seat coverings (probably because it's based on a van)
11. Tight turning circle due to rear wheel drive
12. The look of it (especially my own one, with stainless side bars/steps)
I could go on all day.



There are however a couple of things Hyundai could improve on in future models:

1. Cruise control (especially with all the speed cameras now days!)
2. A heated front PASSENGER seat.
3. I think front arm rests should be fitted as standard (although you can get them retro-fitted).

I've already decided that when I want to change vehicle in a few years time, I'm just going for a newer one.
Surely that says it all.
