Hello, sadly it's now close more than ever to say goodbye to my XD that now belongs to my father. Don't understand wrong the car is still running but My father needs a higher vehicle so it's will be easier for him to get inside and out. He's already ordered a new car from KIA and sadly I can't afford to hold two cars for myself otherwise I would take that car.
So now we have to sell it and really for almost nothing.
I hoped that time would never come but nothing can stop time .

Sorry to hear that. I wish I could buy your car from you but you are on the other side of the world. I always loved your car. So clean and classy. It sucks that you have to let it go. Hopefully the new owner will take good care of it.

Yeah.. well the XD is still here because The new car my father ordered will arrive only in January .
I wish I could give the car to you... :).
Sadly we will have to sell it for less money because the roof and the trunk got severe color fading.

I would love to take it off of your hands. The paint on my XD is fading badly just like yours. I hate that it's fading. Hopefully you get a decent amount of money for it.

Thanks mate.
The car just had an inspection and passed with no problem!





The fading trunk



It's may sound strange but because it's an old car the insurance got higher in price and the law here says car that older than 15 years old needs to do an inspection every half year !
I'm quite sure it's just one of the gov tricks to convince people to get new cars and waste more money into new cars that gives many taxes to the country.

An inspection every six months? Wow. That makes no sense. Inspection for what? If something fails, it fails and you as the owner have to fix it. That sounds like a scam.

That's just a torture. for checking brakes most likely . Gov likes money and they want you to buy new car and getting rid from the old one.
What can I say just stupidity at finest .

I just took the XD to a final trip after not driving it like 2 years.
It was strange at first. windows seem very big and also the steering wheel has some heaviness and sitting position is very low like a sport car .




A good memory for sure !
The car have 111.225 miles right now.. that's not so much tho. I saw some XD that have 400.000 Miles !!
Everything still works in the car and really the bad side is the clear coat and some rust spots on the inner trunk area near the weather stripping. I'm sure someone like Scotty Kilmer would never say a good thing about this car he may say: '' pile of junk that's falls apart or something'' unless it's a Toyota. I think Toyota is just overpriced they really not better than Hyundai. But sadly Hyundai and KIA still have quite a not so good resale value here.

Yeah, I don't think Scotty Kilmer is a Hyundai fan.

I didn't know you hadn't driven it for two years. I really wish I could take that car off of your hands. Hyundai resale value here is good if the car is in good condition. As far as miles, 111,225 is not much. My XD has 241,000 while my XD2 has 42,000. I plan on keeping both for many years. They both are built well.

So is your car gone now?

Great car that has survived. I also bought a 2004 Sonata and didn’t believe the buyer that it could have 20 thousand miles. I suggested decode your vin number and find out the real history of the car. It turned out that car vehicle history is absolutely transparent and true, and I bought it without hesitation.
