My Getz perfectly handled the constant highway speeds of 90K to 130K Northern Territory speed limit , under overtly hot and demanding conditions. Has only needed one repair due to an accident. But now after two years, I have the cooling warning light blue that comes on when I start my car, and then goes off after around 2 minutes when the car is heated up. Overall I must say I've been very happy with the car. My last major problem with it is the drum brakes in the rear, it isnt a good feeling knowing that your driving around with brakes that should have been phazed out in the early 90's.
In the same year the car went on sale. The only thing good this because of its compact size, I cut lanes like a illegal speed car racer. Archived from on 23 July 2010. My car is 6 mths old and done 21000km, serviced 7500km intervals. Steer clear of any large hills too because you will find that the getz has the climbing speed of a fully loaded semi. Has a Balupunkt tube woofer.
I should mention that the car is regularly serviced in an authorised dealer repair shop to manufacturer's standards, and is maintained in best order I can provide. All in all the getz is a brilliant little car, it does its job perfectly. The other issue is various noises in the cabin induced by vibrating plastic parts. The Getz is outstanding value for money and is very fuel economical. But overall it is still a great car.

Even though it is a 3 door, it doesn't feel cramped and has a reasonable amount of space in the back to transport things when the seats are down.
Putting your foot flat to the floor will give you less response than using half of the throttle and you will be going 20-30kms before the revs catch up with it. The hatchback has to be locked with a key which is annoying when you are trying to get something heavy out. The model offers both manual and automatic transmission with a single 1. It sounds like a moped engine under the bonnet I think! Getz has more legroom, more boot space, more internal width, compared to any of Swift, Palio or Fabia! The cure for that could be to stiffen the suspension, which will make comfort even worse. Overall - I've had 2 Hyundais and they've both been fun and reliable cars at a good price. Basically the car is a heap of crap. After the launch of its successors, the 2008 in Europe and 2010 in South Korea, the Getz continued to be marketed worldwide—although production finally ended in 2011.
It is very dangerous to drive, especially in the winter, because there is no way to clear the windows. Sometimes the petrol consumption is more than expected, but it does a loy of town driving. Good year tyre are the worst. I drove it for 3 days and it was the worst car I have ever driven. That was the only fun part about driving Getz.
Would be a great little city car but I'd be scared to drive it on the highway very often. But the ones under the dashboard and behind the door trims remained. No cruise in the base model hurts a bit too, if your planning to go on any long drives the uncomfortable seats will work to cut off the blood flow to your legs. I like the steering effort though the hydraulic amplifier of the sterring wheel may have been a little bit more light-weighted. Inexpensive and good value for money. The car inspires confidence and for me works to meet my transportation needs.
I would only recommend it for city driving only as it does not have any power and the stability is shockingly bad.

I drove this car until I got promoted with better wage and I sold it for a bigger sedan but after driving my new car I realised how good Getz actually was.

I am a guy and sometimes I was a little embarrassed to drive around a small Hyundai. The Getz is easy to park and great to get around town. An additional point was scored for the seat belt reminder that is provided for the driver.
It's great for one person, but as soon as you have someone else in the car it affects the performance considerably! I have done a few long distance drive between Melb and Sydney andit was as reliable as anyother vehicle in this country. I would recomend it to any one on a budget EconomicalReliableValue for money floor pan, manual only the pedals are too close, you really have to have small feet, but you get used to it very quickly i purchased a hyundai getz last year and its been great. Overall, owning a Getz will see you with a reasonably reliable car that's great for small trips and city driving and the fuel will be quite good unless you are heavy footed - a heavy foot ups the revs and doing this cancels out the point of a small, fuel efficient engine. As our 3rd Hyundai overall we had an Excel in the 90s we continue to be thrilled with the performance, service and economy of Hyundai. The pros I have listed for this car are great features; however, other competing makes and models will have similar features if not more. In the end the poor seats made us look elsewhere, something we weren't actually going to do, but I am very happy that we did. Transmission option include 5 speed manual or 4 speed automatic.
