Readers have their say about everything on wheels
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.
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?
