HYUNDAI GETZ Used Car Review

In 2002, the Getz took over the mantle of the Hyundai's Excel as one of Australia's cheapest cars in three-door, 1.3L form. The Getz brought cuter styling and better build quality, however, and in contrast to the Excel it helped to improve Hyundai's reputation in Australia. It lived on for nearly a decade - during which it was immensely popular with rental car companies - before it was gradually replaced by the i20.

Pros

Cons

  • Sharply priced when new
  • 1.6-litre model featured good safety for price/segment
  • 1.4L and 1.6L better performers than earlier engines
  • Better build quality than old Excel
  • 1.4L model missed out on anti-lock brakes and rear disc brakes
  • Many lived long lives as rental cars
  • 4-speed automatic didn't get with engines as well as 5-speed manual
  • Average handling

Servicing

SIMILAR MODELS TO HYUNDAI GETZ

WHAT TO LOOK OUT FOR: HYUNDAI GETZ (2005 to 2011)

Engines need a timing-belt change every 90,000km. Avoid this at your peril, because if the belt breaks it will probably cost more for a rebuilt engine than the car itself is worth.

Always check the service record for proof that routine maintenance has been carried out.

For reasons known only to themselves, many Hyundai buyers think this sort of preventative maintenance is optional and, as a result, their cars never see the inside of a workshop. That's perhaps made worse by the car's otherwise impeccable reliability, lulling owners into a false sense of security.

Early versions had some issues with stone chipping and paint flaws on the plastic front apron, and high-use areas such as the door handles seem to be prone to wear and damage paint-wise. While you're checking that, pay attention to the colour-match on the car's various panels; budget cars often attract budget repairs.

Rental-car companies loved the Getz for its price and durability. But don't accidentally pay full price for an ex-rental Getz. Check the back window for an airline decal (or the shadow where one used to be), which is a giveaway that the car is an ex-rental. Check the owner's manual for the details of the first owner, too.
