Good car to buy but bad service providers(HOPELESS DEALERS)
Hyundai has the best technology of mid sized cars these days...But it is very bad on their part to give mismanaged and poor service to the customers..I got my car last year in june (2007)...car is very good,pickup is excellent...but SERVICE PROVIDERS R NOT AT ALL satisfactory...I've got the car serviced 3 times and not even a single time the good results r achieved...My car's milage is also not satisfactory...Service providers r never interested to give good results and the feedback takn by us r not considered well...It is surely the MISMANAGEMENT OF COMPANY hyundai..The position of the car is surely going to decrease if the company doesnot provide good dealers and ensure good services to the costumers...It is very sad to see the combination of a good technology and bad services...Its high time for company management to save the reputation.... read more

Value for money, one of the best in its class
I've had this car for 3 years now, and I absolutely love it. It's powerful for its class, easy to maneuver, smooth and the power steering responds well. The only problem I have is the suspension, which is rigid and bumpy compared to say a Wagon-R. read more
Excellent in small car segment
We bought Santro XS in 2005 and it is still going great guns. with consistent mileage of around 12-13 in city running and I have everything power driven - steering, brakes, windows (all 4), no problems so far. I have done servicing at regular intervals as recommended. It has been used very roughly and at times without good care and still no complaints. read more
