    Should I buy a veloster?

    I'm wanting to buy my first car and that would more likely be a Veloster, what has been eveyones experiences with it, any complaints or things that I should know about before considering buying? I've done some research but I'm wanting to actually hear from people who has owned them a long time.

    Turbo (VT) or non-turbo (NAV)?

    I have an [early] 2014 VT Auto. I love it. It's a great daily, has been extremely reliable with no issues at 99k miles. I also have bolt ons and a tune. There's horror stories about the early VTs, but my experience has been great! Just gotta make sure to be diligent with maintenance and use the correct fluids/parts. If a fun daily is what you're looking for, I say go for it. But if you're looking to be the fastest on the block, I'd look at other platforms.

    check to make sure that the car will fit what you will need it to do. the trunk area is a little small if you travel or need room for medium to large boxes luggage you might need a little larger car. i have gone from a 2012 accent se to a 2013 elantra gt to my first veloster a 2015 r=spec and finally to a 2019 veloster N non performance . for myself it isa perfect size car i dont have a great need for luggage or trunk space i dont haul around a bunch friends and dont have wife or kids so the car fits every thing i need it do do. personally the veloster is one great car . i have never had any problem with any of my hyundai's they are very well built stand up to weather well get great fuel mileage be sure thay the car will fit the world and work you wil do . and of course have a good day

    Test drive both, then buy the turbo. It’s worth the extra cash. I had a 2012 NAV DCT and while I loved the look of the car I regretted it being gutless and the huge pain of dealing with the unresponsive DCT. I traded it in for my 2014 VT auto and have been nothing but happy with every aspect of it.

    We don’t cater to NAVs here. Turbo only or take it over to veloster.org.

    Is the turbo automatic or manual? Like what's the difference between turbo and non turbo?

    They have auto and manual in turbo and non-turbo. Turbo just has more power and more features for the $.
