Though this is impressive for these engines. Makes me think a replacement engine was installed already.

I’m at 126k on a 2014 turbo. Engine is still very strong. I follow a strict maintenance schedule. I may be one of the few where the chassis is beat and the engine is good lol

My 2012 VT none turbo manual trans is at 93,000+ and due to pot holes, on a new left Hub bearing. I just did the belt (super easy) just because it was old but still good shape. I have run synthetic a d changed every 10 thousand miles. I don't abuse the engine or trans. Runs great. Have a custom air intake. MAGNAFLOW muffler, custom audio and seems to be running fine. The AC fan speed switxh went out after 6 years. Replaced and already going bad again. My main grief. So my point would be that if it was maintained it may be alright however at a higher than 100k mileage, hoses are soft and rubber boots need replacing depending on the environment. So I would test drive it for 30min. Take on the highway. Warm up the engine then take a flashlight and check everything. Ask about maintenance and what was done. If what I heard is correct, Hyundai is yet again discontinuing a fun car (i.e. the Tiburon V6) and going to market just the N model. Now i may be wrong so don't take me 100% but i read some place a few months back that was the case. So maybe just turbo and N models. Not sure. I know in San Antonio its getting harder to find them new with the right config you want.

I heard they may be dropping everything except the N model (Vw just did this with their golfs/gti/r)

Wow! My one-owner '12 has just 24,500 miles on it! Make me an offer! :)
I would definitely contact this man if I was looking for one. I bought a mint 2014 NAV stickshift with 16k on it back in jan of 2019 and I paid 9500. Not sure what this one is worth unless I knew the submodel, condition and where he has it.

It's a 2012, there were no sub models.

Yeah, 2012 got the non turbo base style and tech packs.
2013 added turbo base and tech, plus non turbo remix.

2014 added turbo rspec

If you are looking to get rid of your car, now is the time to do it. I got this cash offer from Carvana.

That's amazing, nvyseal! My 2012 is the style and tech (as it says in my signature). But I'd still like to get another 10 years out this car since the dealership double the 10-year powertrain warranty!
