The Hyundai Getz has been praised by Parker’s Car Guides for its comprehensive warranty provision.
Hyundai began its five-year/unlimited mileage warranty in October 2002, when the Getz was launched, meaning that any faulty parts in the car can be replaced free of charge within five years of purchasing the vehicle.
Commenting on the car itself, Parker’s said: "The Hyundai Getz was the company’s first success in attempting to produce what European customers expect in a small car. It is good to drive, cheap to run, attractive to look at and well equipped."
In its monthly round-up of the opportunities available to car buyers, the group also referred to the Skoda Fabia and the fact that it is about to be replaced by a new model, leading to potential discounts.
Parker’s states that it has seen some Fabias on offer for around £1,000 below the list price. It describes the car as "roomy" and "practical".
Vauxhall’s Vectra estate was tipped as "one of the most practical family cars you can buy", while the Fiat Ulysse was backed as the "king of the people movers".
The market analyst also referred to recent car registration figures for January, describing the Audi A4’s appearance in the top ten as "interesting" and noting that the Ford Mondeo turned up in fifth place, months before an all-new model is to be launched.
