Go go Getz!

I use this car as a daily driver and for long runs at night from fishing adventures

I have the 2007 1.6L SX MANUAL

The fuel economy is fantastic and parking anywhere is a dream. They are not a fast car if u want that go something sporty! As you can imagine been a small car naturally there’s not much room either. This car would suit a fleet vehicle or a person living on a budget

I service regularly with full synthetic oils, timing belt maintenance is important too I do this every 90,000km I’m now on 230,000km and she’s running pretty sweet actually

Pros are fuel economy and ease of parking and fun to drive

Cons are not much power and poor factory lights easily fixed by replacing with LED Show details

Brilliant first car for me and a brilliant car for anybody

This 2010 Hyundai Getz is fantastic. Bought it from my mum in 2020 and she was the original owner and it has never had a problem. With 124,600 kilometres on the dial, she still runs smoothly without fault. It has driven from Adelaide to Melbourne and back multiple times in 40-degree heat with the air con on. Never had an issue with it and just had it serviced with the mechanic saying that she is still in great condition with a lot of life left. For a first car, it is great, cheap to run, cheap to service and cheap on fuel, I recommend it to anyone looking for a cheap reliable ride that is also sometimes quite fun to drive.  Show details

Not for me, glad it was only a hire car

Had this car as a hire car whilst other car was at the panel beaters. Yes, its cheep and you know that the second you sit inside it. Seats were itchy and uncomfortable against the bare legs. The performance wasnt the best either (I know its a 1.4l petrol) I struggled to get it up to speed on the freeway, (dont think I made it to 100k before it was time for me to get off).
Its very small so easy to park and has a great turning circle.

Positives-
1. Great turning circle
2. Lots of glass so good visibility

Negatives-
1. Ride, very uncomfortable
2. Handling
3. Not much grip
4. Used a lot of fuel for the size of the engine
5. Very very very slow
6. Gearbox cant decide what gear to go into, Show details

Great small car!

I bought this car after a year old as the previous owner bought a family car as didn’t need anymore. Had it for 7 years & its a great small car to drive around & havent had any issues with it. The only downside is that it isnt the best going up steep hills as its only a 1.4L but driving around the city is great.

It's a good car for me, but it's not without its issues (I give it 3.5 stars but that wasn't an opti

This was my first car and I just needed a small, cheapish runabout to get me to uni and my uni placements..and whatever after that. It does what I want, it drives, it's reliable enough and it's a good size for easy parking and it's fairly easy on the petrol. It is small and there is not much room to get very comfy, so long drives would be hard I think (I haven't driven it for longer than 1.5 hours at a time). I have had some issues with the back doors being a bit tricky too and the aircon could be better, but if you want a cheap little runabout for work, uni etc., this car is good for that.

I have just purchased a 2008 3dr manual getz and just noticed it doesnt have a temp gauge like my 2002 model did.
My question is should i install an aftermarket temp gauge or is there an OEM/Genuine kit that can be fitted? And if anyone has done an aftermarket one whats a decent brand and price thanks cam
