Literally slower than a DC5 integra while still being a hyundai.

iff you are looking for a new "hot hatch" the focus ST is miles better and if you are looking used the MazdaSpeed3 and Cobalt SS are way cheaper and faster

If I wanted an interesting econobox I would consider it.

Correct, I do like hatch's. I just especially hate the third door on velosters...

Because I may have hit my head when I was trying to sit in one at a car show and it fucking hurt.. And a black person laughed at me..

I can't stand that at all. Have an even number of doors damnit, 1 on the left side and 2 on the right just fucks with my mind too much.

It's curb side, so it's safer.

You know, I hated it, and reccomended other hatch backs over it, but then on saturday at the black top nationals, Velostar beat destroyed a Focus ST and a Cobalt SS (no surprise) by 6-8 seconds. I was pretty impressed. Third door is pants on head retarded.

Terrible handling due to poor suspension design that allows wheel hop while accelerating and loads of understeer while turning.
More torque steer than your body has room for.
Not as practical as it looks.
Not as powerful as "Turbo" would imply.
Hyundai Corporate likes to try and weasel out of performing warranty work.
It's incredibly ugly.

It's the new PT Cruiser, basically.

Buy a Focus ST, Mazda3 or a Dart

My brother has the (arguably better looking because no added on tacky aero) NA version.

The clutch is heavy and sloppy. 38k miles and it already has non clutch related tranny issues.

TLDR avoid.
Get em used in 8 years, tear all the shit out of em, get aftermarket everything and it may be a decent ride
