Hyundai Getz TB (2002-2011) has been discontinued and replaced by Hyundai i20.
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.
Purchased in June 2020 for $4,500.00.
Excellent cheap car runs like clock know matter what!
Great on petrol, 1.6 revvy and goes for 4, never ever had problems, not even in 40 degree heat with air conditioning on all day. Service regularly and that's it . Great in back streets.
Purchased in June 2011 at Essondon fields for $14,000.00.
Wonderful little car.
I bought the Hyundai Getz, new, in March 2010. It has been a very reliable vehicle. The car has been serviced twice a year since purchase. I have driven 95,000klms (now June 2020) in ten years of using the Getz. I highly recommend this car. The car is used mainly for shopping, the odd longer trip and the occasional trip to work ( I mainly use public transport as I live 130klms from my place of work).
My advice to any potential buyers is to ensure that your car has been regularly serviced; ask for a service record. Aging vehicles do ultimatel...y need major repairs. My car has never had any major issues other than a recently replaced timing belt (previous one in good condition). Also, I never use ethanol unleaded in my vehicle, I mainly use 95 or 98 premium petrol, sometimes regular unleaded. The engine is in great condition. I have no intention of replacing the car in the foreseeable future.
Purchased in March 2010 for $14,700.00.
One of my best investments.
Bought one in 2002 , brand new auto. Bought it to teach my 4 children to drive. They used it until they bought their own cars. Still have it , 240,000 km on the clock , just serviced it and my mechanic says she still got some life it her ......who knows , l am hoping to celebrate her 20th .
Purchased in December 2002.
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.
1. Great turning circle
2. Lots of glass so good visibility
1. Ride, very uncomfortable

Purchased in April 2007 at Hyundai Dealers for $13,500.00.
Very good reliable cheap car
We purchased our little Hyundai Getz new in NSW in 2010 (I note a lot of the major car rental firms all used Hyundai Getzs in their fleets for cheap reliable cars). We initially looked at buying a small second hand car but anything any good was $9-10,000- or more. So for $12,400- brand new with a factory 5 year warranty we purchased a new Hyundai Getz SX 1.6, 5 speed manual trans, 3 door hatchback with white paint.
The 4 speed automatic option was dearer, as was a 4 door model (additional $1,000-) and any coloured paintwork, other than white is...
Purchased in September 2010.
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.
Other than lack of comfort, an excellent car
Until recently being belted by a hit and run driver and written off, our little gerty getz had managed 230000kms without breaking a sweat.
Positives were absolute reliability- started every time, and besides servicing, a few globes, an engine mount and timing belts at 100k intervals it needed nothing else. The rocker cover had started to weep oil but other than that no leaks.
Being the sxi it had the 1.6 motor and with 5 speed manual it was quite nippy while averaging about 6l/100km in mixed driving. Easy to drive, good brakes with abs an...d decent ride. Handling however was safe but boring- understeer being the way. Horrid wheel bearing noise turned out to be cheap tyres- new decent tyres fixed the noise but didn’t help handling much. Not the go cart feel I expected but it was only a commuter. Comfort was about the only thing I would mark it down for. Seats were hard and flat and compared to a later i30 in our family that is very comfortable, the getz was on par with a park bench. It gave me a sore back and despite cushion tilt I was forever trying to find a comfortable position (I’m 6ft 85kg so maybe it was more suited to a more petite body). For a reliable car that goes the distance of looked after, it’s tough not to recommend it. They sold a heap of them so it’s easy to find a good one.
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.
Meh.. not reliable cars at all
I’ve had both a 2010 & a 2005 from memory they are the years
The newer one was an itbox but suspect it might have been abused by previous owner... soemthing to do with engine sold it as is... nice to look at in white in the hot sun but unreliable pile of crap... we tried fixing it but no go.. even with a bit of tlc still a crap box
05 had some sort of alarm sensor problem.. battery also drained a lot. Computer scans ran on the car revealed it wasn’t a computerised issue.. the car was so unreliable basically locking me out or not starting wha...
Oh look at my car,it's low in cost and it's easy to put petrol in it.It's black,shiny glossy and looks great.Easy to clean and easy to run.Plenty of leg room and the carpet is plush,short style to keep clean.Compact and neat is my car,needless to say it is my car and I am very proud of my little FAMILY.
The perfect ride
This car is such a great drive. It’s the first car I have bought in Australia and I love it. My friend bought one back in July 2017 and she couldn’t recommend it enough. Even though it is second hand it has been so reliable and such a smooth run. Easy to use and cheap. It’s almost like it runs on fresh air.
Nice and cheap car
I bought the second hand one from a dealer, just cost me$2000.
It is economic style of vehicle for going to school or supermarket, it's 1.6L, very cheap for petrol.
But, Its room is a little bit squeezy, not only for seating area, but also luggage zone, can not put a big size baggage.
It's too light, so don't drive fast, easy to roll over.
Pretty good all round
Pretty solid car all round - I abused it for a while with minimal servicing but it never broke down or complained.
Purchased with about 90,000 km = Sold with about 125,000
Interior build quality is very good - I was surprised by this.
Engine is terrible when cold - clunky transmission and no power at all.
However, on warm days with some driving done and good oil. the car was quite responsive.
Fantastic handling - really precise and fun, especially on country lanes.
I'm 6'3'' and it was the most comfortable driving position/seating ...
