    Problems With The Veloster Turbo: 1)Doesn't Come With The Nice Color Coordinated Wheels Available On The Loaded N/A Version. 2)It May Come As A Shock Hyundai But Some Of Us Don't Like Leather Interiors. 3)Should(But Doesn't)Come In All The Colors Available On The N/A Version. 4)The Grill, While It Is An Improvement Over The N/A Version IS TOO DAMN BIG!! 5) Now That Everyone Has Gotten Over The Cutesy 3 Side Door Design How About Making It In 2 Door And 4 Door Hatch Models So Everyone Can Get What They Really Want Instead Of Some Marketers Idea Of What They Want. I For One Want A 2 Door Hatch Ya'Know Like The GTI. Is Anyone Listening?? -A Long Time Hyundai Owner Looking For His Next Car And Not Finding It At A Hyundai Dealership
