They seem to like it overall. The engine power is apparently only adequate but handling is dramatically improved... a good sign for Hyundai.

Personally, I just can't get past the conservative 1980's look interior.

I like the interior, much better than the generation before, that had the swoopy lines on the dash reflect off the windshield.

Now if only they'd deliver it with a peppy motor, like the article suggests (and maybe a 6-speed manual)...
