I voted Maybe because I like testing and living with various brands and their "sporty products"
After a couple of BMWs, I bought an Abarth, then the i30N.
For a next model, an i20N or a KonaN would -yes- be nice, but in this case I would opt for a ford ST model (fiesta, focus, puma) just for the experience of it. And after the ford, I'd go for another brand and so on as long as I can afford it
My wife had a Ford a few years ago, good on paper but the reality was shocking quality everywhere, hose clips going rusty in less than a year, it exuded a complete air of cheapness.

You could say that about any company to be fair, all have horror stories of some sort, are you telling me Hyundai have never had quality issues with any of there models over the years?

Hyundai have had their quality control issues just like every other manufacturer. They've had to pay hefty fines and been forced to fix countless number of engine failures by the NHTSA because of it.

It's no different than every other manufacturer. Once a company whistle blower comes out the of weeds and spews the goods, they all get caught and have to pay the piper. Not in millions of dollars but billions.

I'm not telling you anything, just recounted my personal experience of Ford vehicles.

Hyundai have a good reliability record in Europe. Perhaps not so good in the USA.
Yeah, but you have to break down what this "reliability" actually means. How many N performance cars have been driven longen that 10 Years? In the meantime you have tons of other brands performance cars going way over 10, 15, even 20 years.


Off Topic / is this the normal standard anti rust protection under the plastic covers?

Many Hyundai’s more than 10 years old. I see them on the road daily, the N hasn’t been around 10 years and we will just have to wait and see.

Pretty much but this is strictly surface coating not the chemical bonding, metal rust preventative process it goes thru before painting. There is no such thing as rust proofing.

I don't plan on getting another one as I am a person who drives a car as long as the TÜV shuts the car down.
But if I were in the position to look for a new car, I would consider a Hyundai again, yes. Mainly because I know the right dealerships to go to and I've had zero issues with my current N.
Do you any good dealerships in the North near Preston which are good and not doing people over
