I know. I just approved it
VERY well-written review - I am sure the dealership will appreciate it!
#7 of 8 R-Spec has no cruise control
May 26, 2013 (6:42 am)
Horrible, horrible decision. The R-Spec has everything a performance enthusiast wants, nothing you don't want, like sunroof and spoiler. Except for a cruise control. Has anyone on Hyundai USA's product management team actually driven from their OC headquarters to Willow Springs, their own proving grounds, Buttonwillow, Las Vegas, Phoenix, Laguna Seca, Infineon, Thunderhill, etc? In these days of e-throttle, cruise control is software, not a big vacuum motor and cables under the hood. A few buttons on the steering wheel don't add more than an ounce or two. On a car this heavy, that's the same as zero. You can lose more material from the tires in a burnout. This isn't hard to get right. In 2013, people expect cruise control on new cars. Steering wheel mounted cruise control is an option on the lowest trim level of the Accent. But not on the almost $29k 3.8 R-Spec Gen Coupe. If I really wanted a stripped-out track-only car without features that are considered basic in 2013, or 2003, or even 1993, I'd buy an E36 and strip it, or build a turbo Miata and take out the power steering and A/C. The car guy making those compromises is not buying a brand new, almost $30k car to make them with. /rant

My 2013 2.0T premium has a horrible rattle coming from the turbo waste. Hyundai refuses to fix mine or anyone else's saying its normal. Trust me when you hear the loose washers on a bolt sound coming from our cars you wouldn't like it either. Its awful! Wouldn't recommend this car to anyone since Hyundai refuses to fix them. It cost way to much money to own a car you are embarrassed to start around people.
