I got my car a few months ago. So far I really like it. The Hyundai warranty made the sale a no brainer. Every time I even begin to regret not getting a Civic, I just think of the many more years and miles of coverage I get with Hyundai. I made a 500+ mile trip from SC up to DC and ended up not having to refuel. 44mpg, and that is including heavy traffic in and near DC. I find the car to be really quiet and smooth on the road, and the turbo has a nice pick up to it. It is also comfortable for the most part. It is taking me a while to figure out all of the technology as far as the android auto, and other things. This is surprising because I am pretty savvy with that stuff, but this isn't exactly intuitive. If I commit more time to it, I'd probably be better with it, but I'm typically in the car to drive it, not play with the tech.

One complaint I have is that there really isn't a comfortable place to rest my left arm. I'd typically put my elbow on the window, but the thin ledge doesn't allow for that. And the "rest" on the door is too low. Something I am still getting used to. I ended up buying a 3rd party product call the Arm 'Restler or something. It helps, but it isn't perfect. I may end up designing something on my own. I'd really like to be able to have something to rest that arm on during long trips. Also, I am a little over 6' tall, so there isn't much room above my head either.

I hope to get some advice on the forum. Good to be here.

Welcome to the Club!

Thanks for the review of the ECO and welcome to EC. I don't know why Hyundai isn't pushing this car more. They are very hard to find. Seems to me it's a great package.

Feel free to post some pics!

Yes, would also like to see some pictures.
I'm also 6 ft, and when I was sitting in various Hyundai models last time around, headroom was a concern.
Ended up with a Touring, and lots of room.
