1994 Hyundai Excel Problems
The manual transmission may become difficult to shift into third gear. This is common caused by worn synchronizers. Our technicians tell us that revised synchronizers are available to correct this concern.
The engine may stall when shifting the automatic transmission into reverse. This is commonly caused by a clogged transmission cooler line or fluid cooler. If this occurs transmission fluid flow will need to be restored by replacing the cooler and/or lines as necessary.
The engine may be slow to warm up due to a stuck open thermostat. Replacement of the thermostat is required to correct this issue.
The coolant valve under the right side of the dash may develop a leak. This can easily be mistaken for a leaking heater core. Our technicians recommend careful diagnoses of coolant leaks in the area.

1994 Hyundai Excel Reviews
I bought my 1994 Hyundai excel new. It is a California special sea-foam green we had a/c added the car has 226k miles the interior is in great condition. the paint has lasted, with the color I can find it in the parking lot a mile away. The only major problem was the clutch went out then the manual trans, replaced both no problem. the car does not have enough power to run a/c and drive the car at the same time, the car has good power still. I like Hyundai's I have a 2005 sonata it has 90k miles and it clatters real bad, no one can tell me what it is, yet. I would buy Hyundai's they are good cars, lots of features for the money, but they are starting to get a little pricey.
