I went to an outlet here this past Thursday to do some shopping and someone let all of the air out of my passenger side front tire. They were going to let the air out of the passenger side rear also but didn't.

Well, the drivers rear tire is low again. I need to take the tire off and see. I took my phone and ran it around the tire and I think I see something in it but didn't take the tire off being that shops are closed today and don't feel like putting the spare on it or that tire back on just to take it off and get it repaired. Tomorrow I'm going to yank the tire and see what I find. I need to pick up the plates for it as well.... So far though my wife is happy with the car.

It snowed here 8" yesterday and the rear tire is low again..... real feel temps have not gotten much above low single digits, but here I was outside taking the tire off to look at it. I had to get some hot water in order to get the tire to separate from the rotor because it was iced up, but I found that there was a screw in it. Had it patched up and it's back in business. I had to take care of this today being that my wife is starting her new job tomorrow


Now I'm REALLY glad that I bought this car. She's working around the corner from where she used to work(actually at a former employer that is under new ownership and they cleaned house of all the cancer that was working there). It's about 30 miles one way. The Hyundai is really good on gas. It's similar in size/weight to the wagon, but a 4cyl. Even with the eco-mode disabled, she was able to average 31mpg with it on a highway drive. Being that she's really only driving local it's hard to tell how good it is. Now that she'll be traveling we can get a real feel for how it'll do. I'm still happy with the purchase.

I have never heard a bad thing about that car from a friend who has put over 130k miles on his. It was on my real short list for a new car and I looked for at least a year and when to two auto shows to try all at one time. I easily beat the new Taurus because of interior room and gas mileage.
