Good point about the full size spare wheel, I hired a Volvo XC90 and ended up with a flat rear tyre, unfortunately unrepairable. Managed to limp it as far as the nearest tyre center on the space saver, luckily they had the unusual sized tyre in stock and luckily it was in the UK where distances between towns aren't that great.

When renting a car, take it as an opportunity to try something different. I enjoy driving a Mercedes or BMW for a few days but wouldn't want to be saddled with the ownership costs. Korean cars have improved immensely in the last few years and are nearly on a level with the Japanese. I'll take reliability and lower running cost over soul anytime.
