HELP­FUL HYUNDAI

I READ in the cars­Guide about a Hyundai hic­cup so I would like to share with you my ex­pe­ri­ence with Hyundai. I bought an i45 (be­low) in July and the car was found to have a prob­lem with the paint­work. Hyundai Aus­tralia, to­gether with Essendon Hyundai, in­ves­ti­gated the prob­lem and took the car back and re­placed it with an­other new car. This was a sit­u­a­tion which could have gone pear­shaped quite eas­ily, but the out­come was ex­cep­tional. I was treated ex­tremely well and be­lieve that they do de­serve pos­i­tive feed­back.

Good to hear.

OFF TO ULURU

I HAVE a Honda Jazz 2006. Next year I want to go to Wilpena Pound, across to Cooper Pedy, then Uluru, Kings Canyon, Alice Springs and home to Mel­bourne. Is this a rea­son­able thing to ex­pect?

Ruth Stan­ley, email The Jazz should be fine for your trip. The bi­tu­men roads are in de­cent con­di­tion for or­di­nary cars. You re­ally don’t need a 4WD un­less you are go­ing deep into the bush.

DIS­ABLED SPA­CES

I OF­TEN see what I feel is mis­use of dis­abled park­ing spa­ces. A car, bear­ing the dis­abled park­ing per­mit, pulls into a dis­abled spot. The able-bod­ied driver gets out and too­tles off to the shops, leav­ing the dis­abled per­son in the car. If the dis­abled per­son is not go­ing to get out, surely they don’t need to park in the dis­abled spot?
