I'm loving mine, too. Bought it last Saturday. But, if you are looking for reasons to nitpick, here are mine: The back seat is comfortable if you are under 5'10". Bigger than that, your head will hit roof. And its not easy for anyone to get in the back -- the doorway is kind of small. Lots of blind spots.
That's about it so far. I've gotten compliments on it from a friend who drives a Porsche, and from my 14-year-old daughter's friends who "love it." I have driven a 45K Acura, and find this to be as comfortable seating-wise, comparable technology / nav / sound system. I do feel the hesitation a bit on fast acceleration (Turbosocks called it 'laggy') but then I filled up with regular gas and get 30+ MPG.
Bottom line for me: Wanted fun to drive, low cost / maintenance, nice-looking, high-tech, fit four people, and in the 27K price range. Nothing even came close to the VT for me. I almost bought a used BMW 3 series, but then compared Edmunds 5-year-cost-to-own. Beemer was going to run an extra $1,000/yr in gas, and about $3,000/year in maintenance.
Hope you end up with the VT. Good luck on Saturday.
PS - on my way home with the new car, someone pulled up beside me and took a picture. Don't think that ever happens to a Camry/Civic/Taurus driver.
I've gotten a lot of compliments from friends and strangers, all complimenting the paint job and seat comfort. The only thing you won't like is the crappy MPG you get at first, I heard it gets normal around 3K miles though! Also, the driver side rear window and rear hatch glass has dot matrix around the edges so it might annoy you if you get a tint job!
Those are the only complaints I have so far after 750 miles.
One more thing, if you get the A/T (not sure if this is with the M/T), when you drive it for the first 100 miles or so, you might get a quick jerking motion when going from 1st to 2nd gear. This is normal. I haven't had it happen after the initial 50 miles but it freaked me out until I read it was normal in the owner's manual!
mile for 1200 miles already and i love it. Been playing it with every second i get. MT so i don't have to share it.... lol but the only complaint would probably be the fact that it has projectors yet not hids from factory. That was very disappointing. BUT best car i've had in a while
Just picked mine up Monday after 8 weeks of waiting. I absolutely love this car. Maybe coming from an F150 makes me a little biased, but this thing is quick. Corners like its glued to the road. I got a base for MSRP. Try getting turbo, leather, sound, heated seats for 23k anywhere else.
For those of us who do not have build threads or a place to show what we've recently done to our VT.
I do not have any juicy pics to start things off but I did receive my Quik valve drain plug, and I just ordered some BTJetman rear reflector mesh inserts. Looking to get me some black eye line...
I have a 2016 veloster turbo and dont have the nav or tech package. Wondering why Hyundai would put the bluelink rearview mirror with navigation buttons if my vehicle doesnt have navigation or the tech package.
this may be a dumb question but i have a 2013 hyundai Veloster 6 sp manual base and i’m pretty sure it needs a new tranny i was looking online and saw the turbo 6sp transmission going for cheaper and less miles can i put this Veloster turbo rated tranny in base Veloster
I was wondering if the stock exhaust layout on a 2016 VT is enough to handle a cold air intake system or would i need to cutomize that first? Im just looking to get a lil more potential out of this beast. Idk a whole lot about this sort of thing so I couldnt give you a laid out plan. i just know...
I wanna buy the Sxth Downpipe and the Takeda 3 midpipe for my VT 2020 and i already have the Axle back from Borla S-type, my question if i buy the Takeda 3 Midpipe the flange of it will be 3” as well as the Pipe or can i able to install 2.5” flange of my Borla catback without any problem
