I've my 2.0T manual base coupe for a week now. It's fantastic, although I'm driving like a wuss my first 600 miles (can't wait for 601!).

My major complaint with the vehicle thusfar is: (drum roll, please)

I have to reach way far back to grab the seatbelt to put it on.

Sorry, folks, that's it.

Reach back below your shoulder, not above your shoulder.

Lol. "Strap" your seatbelt down with the little magnetic strap on the bottom of the seat.

Its not Hyundai's fault you have short arms. Sorry.
LOL!!!

Actually, I'm 6'3" with proportional arms. But admittedly, at 53, not as flexible and limber as I once was. I'm having to grab a good 6" behind my head.

Yes, I use my right arm and yes, I reach over my shoulder. No, wasn't aware of belt magnet, will check it out.

As for this brah being mad about it? Oh hell, no. If this is my biggest complaint, having lived behind the wheel since I got it (I may have to have the steering wheel surgically removed), then I feel I'm doing fantastic!

Maybe I'll just consider the belt grab to be a yoga exercise!

That's where you went wrong. Like I said, use your left arm and swing it backward UNDER your shoulder (meaning don't reach back pivoting upward, pivot arm downward).
