2001 Hyundai Elantra

The 2001 Hyundai Elantra is the third generation of Elantra, redesigned to add more space and comfort.  It still only comes with a single engine: a 140 hp, 2.0 liter inline 4-cylinder engine.  This engine came with three transmission options: the standard 5 speed manual, the optional 4 speed manual, or the optional 4 speed automatic.  Gas mileage is pretty good, with 24 miles per gallon city miles and 33 highway miles.  And in the redesign, the 2001 Hyundai Elantra gained a few inches, now 177 inches long and 67 inches wide.  Additionally, the 2001 Hyundai Elantra is available as a sedan or a hatchback.  

As far as the interior goes, the 2001 Hyundai Elantra didn't gain a whole lot of features.  Air conditioning, cruise control, power windows and power locks a CD player, leather seats, and a manual sunroof are all available, either standard or optional, depending on the trim.  To keep everyone safe, driver, passenger and side airbags are standard on both trims, with anti-lock brakes and traction control was safety options.  

Owners of the 2001 Hyundai Elantra tended to think highly of the car.  While there were not an overwhelming number of complaints, the ones that did exist cited numerous problems.  If you get one of the few bad Hyundais, you really get a bad one.  Nobody commented on the added inches in body size, but nobody complained about the 2001 Elantra being too small, either.  Gas mileage was one of the most talked about features, as was the unexpected amount of pep for a vehicle of this caliber.  Like so many other Hyundais, especially the later models, this is a highly recommended car.
