Hyundai Getz Problems
No car is perfect, but we've gathered everything relating to the Hyundai Getz reliability here to help you decide if it's a smart buy.
Hyundai Getz 2007: Price guide
It depends on the exact model, whether it’s a base model or an SXi for example, but the guiding range for a 2007 Getz would be $1400-$3900. With just 48,000 km on the clock yours would fall at the top end of the range.
Hyundai Getz 2009: which version had stability control?
There were two models in 2009, the S and the SX. The S didn't have ESP (stability control), but the SX got ESP with the MY2009 upgrade in October 2008.
Hyundai Getz 2008: Are there any problems?
The Getz is a good, solid, and reliable car with no major flaws that should cause you any concern. The automatic transmission is a regular one, not a CVT.
Hyundai Getz 2010: Excessive fuel use
You are right, it is far too high for that car. Going by Hyundai’s official figures you should be getting between 5.5 and 9.5L/100km depending on the mix of driving you’re doing. I would be making sure all is well with the engine and the electronics that control it, and check the exhaust to make sure it’s not blocked.
Hyundai Getz 2002: Jerky acceleration
It sounds like it is hesitating when you want to accelerate. It would worth checking the spark plugs and cleaning and resetting the gaps if needed, also clean the throttle body, and check for any vacuum leaks.

Hyundai Getz 2005: Rear window locked
The window regulator is probably kaput, take it to your mechanic or an auto electrician and have it repaired.
Hyundai Getz 2009: Incorrect fuel consumption
Carmakers don't make claims in km/litre terms, so I don't know who made the claim of 20 km/litre. The official claimed fuel consumptions for your car is 6.9 L/100 km, which makes it 14.5 km/litre if you convert it to your terms. The official figures come from a standard laboratory test that every carmaker does and they're meant to be purely for comparison purposes to allow you to compare car to car, model to model, they're not a real life measure of fuel consumption. You need to recheck your actual fuel consumption before you take it back to the dealer. That way you know what it really is, and you would have something meaningful you could discuss with them.
Hyundai Getz 2010: Coolant replacement recommendations?
We checked with Hyundai and their advice was to follow the service booklet as it is produced with specific recommendations for this market, whereas the owner's manual is a generic publication for many markets around the world. The shorter period is definitely the one to use.
