Ya, it's a 2012. I wanted Blue Link so bad, but couldn't afford it just for that alone.

Nice pickup there...I don't see many of those in Korea, as they are really meant for the USA market I think. I am really curious to know just how well the suspension performs.

For those who are still living in the 1990's or the early 2000's, Hyundai is now innovating and delivering quality cars. More so than even Toyota and Honda. They are better positioned in world markets and are not suffering the type of financial/economic stresses that Japanese (or European and American) companies face.

The Korean suspension is actually better than ours here. They come equipped with air ride.

The suspension is incredibly stiff. The car doesn't take hard bumps in the road the way you would expect a big cushy 'luxury' sedan to take them. I suspect my gf will get car sick riding in it sometimes. Abiet I haven't driven it really hard, from what I have done I haven't experienced any roll at all.

I'm terrible with with interior shots sooo...



4 of 5 seats are heated and the driver's seat is also cooled. I'm debating getting my gf a suit, driving gloves, and a hat to drive me around while it sit in the back.

You could have bought a Boss 302 for less.

It seems more perfect for your girlfriend being its automatic.

As pzr said, Boss costs more than I paid for this car and doesn't come in 4-door. Being my DD it's more a matter of convenience and utility than anything else. Nor does the Boss have anywhere near the standard (or available) features. And the 100k mile warranty mattered just as much as convenience, considering how often my WRX breaks. The fact that this car is decently fast is just a plus.

I spend up to 2 hrs a day in a car (DC metro traffic), I figured I'd get something comfortable.

For what it's worth:

My gf drives a modified 5-speed WRX.

I changed something I didn't like last weekend.
