I am the owner of this vehicle and until lately I would have said it was a reliable car. My I max isn't even 5 years old yet and the turbo went and motor went Hyundai said because my service was late they would not honor their 5 year warranty and I have found out since that people that are regularly servicing and maintaining their turbo are having the exact same problem. I was told but a professional in the field that the turbo blows and not long after that the engine will blow up to. I was pregnant with two young children stuck at the side of the road at night in the middle of no where. I would not recommend anyone take the risk with buying this car and if you have bought one already keep the services up to date so as when it blows up you can claim it on the warranty.
