Luxury and Performance had a baby, they named it the XG300 by Jack Bauer on 02/25/2009. Trim: 2001 Hyundai XG300 Base, Owned 9 years.
Pros: The Hyundai XG300 handles very well. The engine is extremely smooth and it feels like I'm driving on a cloud. The transmission shifts very nicely. The brakes work well and the steering is great. The engine is decently powerful pushing 194hp. I put intake in my Hyundai XG300 and it runs even faster. Every girl I have had in the Hyundai loves it, some girls even though it was a Mercedes. Yes the interior is very nice. It's big inside. It has leather seats and wood grain. When it's cold the XG300 heats up/cools down very quickly and the rear heating/ac unit heats/cools the car up less than a minute. The stock bass is also very nice. If you take care of this car it will take care of you.
Cons: The electrical system is flawed in the XG300. It's not a serious issue but it has to be addressed. Another issue is body rot inside the XG300. The Hyundai XG300 has a serious design flaw which the body of the car rots. It is LIFE THREATENING. The nice thing is the Hyundai dealership fixed it for free. Going at speeds of 85mph the XG300 has body roll. The XG300 has body roll issues because it's a heavy car and the stock suspension isn't the best. If you want to hook this baby up like me, the car battery is in the way and some custom additions you add on to make this car faster may take longer due to a cluttered engine space. The shiftronic transmission doesn't shift well.
Overall review: The Hyundai XG300 has a lot of space, nice luxurious look, smooth engine, great handling, heats up and cools off quick, comfortable inside and its engine has enough power to satisfy most people (even a faster driver like me). Great car to take women/girls to dates. The stock system in the car is very nice. Some people think I have bass woofers in the back. Watch out though! The XG300 isn't perfect but the problems can be fixed! This is a 2001 Hyundai, that is the year Hyundais slipped with quality. I have driven in this car for over 10 years, take my word for it, it's a great car.
