Hyundai Excel 1999 Q&As
Check out real-world situations relating to the Hyundai Excel here, particularly what our experts have to say about them.
THE price is about right for a car of that mileage and registration, which makes it a pretty good buy. The Excel is a good little car with few problems. The engine and gearbox are generally solid and reliable.
Exiting the excel
THERE is no reason to dump the Excel before it gets to the 100,000km mark. They are a reliable car and I have seen some with more than 200,000km up and running sweetly. Maybe people are getting out before the warranty runs out, but I see no reason to justify doing that.
ACCORDING to the trade, the Excel doesn't have a problem with pinging. The advice about using a higher-octane fuel to check for the source is correct. As the pinging wasn't present when PULP was used, it suggests you have a problem with the fuel you're using. Try switching brands and buying from an outlet with a high volume of sales. It's possible you've had some poor-quality fuel. If that doesn't work and you aren't satisfied with what your dealer has done, contact Hyundai's local office and express your concerns directly.
