As for the roll-back, this can avoided by simply releasing the brake slowly to give a chance to the clutch to engage.

I'm fully aware there are critics out there bashing the car (besides yourself), but you directly mentioned results from long-term test and that's where I was asking for proof. Anyone can spout off anything, so if you're saying these long-term tests exists, I say "prove it".

As for the higher octane, it's not BS, it's fact. If my engine had serious problems, a higher octane wouldn't fix it, however if there are differences in how the engine is setup to run better on higher octane, then it will help.

The key to that it's a simple thing to try. If it helps, great and if it doesn't the person isn't out much.

This Forum is to try and provide help/insight to new owners, not just spew off the mouth with nothing but negativity. If you hate your car, sell it and move on. Take your negative attitude to Hyundai or somehwere else.
