Hyundai Getz: 120,000 km Badge Unlocked! My Life 04 FEB 2015

Just the other day I was saying how pleased I was to have finally paid off the Hyundai Getz I bought from Hyundai Helderberg way back in 2010 – and Monday, whilst driving into work (in fact, just before the Westlake Business park), I spotted my odometer hitting the dreaded reading: the 120,000 km badge is now unlocked!

I have to say, for the five years that I’ve now owned her, she has done remarkably well, not letting me down once. In face, the only two niggles I’ve had in the time was the central locking not working for a while (fixed) and a front sun visor which is now a little droopy.

That’s it (other than one or two self-inflicted scrapes).

So yup, mightily impressed with my little Getz and all the more reason for me to stay happily in the Hyundai family for the next couple of years to come.

Of course, my Hyundai 5 year/120,000 km warranty/service plan has now come to an end, meaning that after this week’s big, big service, it’s back to paying for my future car services out of pocket.

Sigh, guess I best start putting a little aside each month already.

Still, she has made – and kept – me happy… so then I guess she’s pretty damn worth it! :)

  • So far it seems to doing well for you! I still miss your old Opel(?) you had all those years back.

    • Yup, have to say that the Getz has definitely gone well for me. Ah yes, my great little Opel Monza – first ever car that I drove. Wow, those were the good old days! :)
