I drove a 1991 (!) Alfa 164S. A wonderful car to be sure but I awoke one morning and decided that I was spending too much money on 'keeping it new' plus the cost of high octane gas along with too many trips to my local garage. Got to be a joke: When I picked up the Alfa and it had been washed my bill was on the plus side of $1,000; not washed, less than $1,000.

My wife misses the comfortable and six way adjustable seats. I miss the torque and not having to gear down from fifth on mountain roads.

The V Tech looks great, runs well, good warranty , far better mileage, fun to drive and yes the NAV system, Sound, and more. I don't think I'll be sorry.

'02 Old Bravada.... Had to dump it after 160,000 miles. Only got about 16 or 17 MPG on my 80+ mile round trip to work. Plus it was starting to pick my pocket for repair costs weekly. Love my V!! Great car and at 35mpg avg. on my work round trip its leaving my wallet much more full!

I was driving an 01 Mercedes Benz SLK230. Silver - sporty as hell, awesome retractable hardtop convertible... But apparently nobody could SEE it. Got rear-ended, and a year later, backed into. Time for it to go.

Honestly - the Veloster Turbo is a much superior vehicle. :)

I had a 2007 Hyundai Tucson with 4cyl 5 speed. I called it the gutless wonder. Not enough power! It was reliable, got me from point A to B, nothing exciting.
I LOOOOOOOOOVE my 2013 Veloster :D. Traded in the Tucson with out looking back :D LOVE the 6 speed MT :D

I decided on the 2013 Veloster for the styling, the MPG (I'm getting 37 combined MPG so far) I love the color, the amount of features you get in the car for the price is fantastic, lots of bang for the buck. I have owned numerous Hyundai's in the past and loved them all, very reliable. And I like owning something a little different than the other cars out there. There are not many of these in my area. So far I'm getting lots of people asking me what is it and admiring it.

2011 Kia Forte5 SX. A very good car, really. A strut bar and rear-chassis bar made it handle quite well. Compared to my new V, I miss the Forte's hydraulic steering and better power delivery. Had to give the V a try, though...

Had Peugeot RCZ - much prefer Veloster Turbo as better ride, narrower and great reversing camera. Indeed al the tech works well - RCZ appeared more luxurious but sever electrical gremlins occured!
