Good Car Never Drive In The Snow Or Rain No Heater — bought this car brand new use to be gold changed color after dash fire and I am still driving it with 65K on it. Everything on it still works as it should. but the heater blower system eats fan control switches like candy I did a lot of research on this car before buying it, I bought the car goes GREAT in the snow.. It also handles good on dry roads as well I had it up to 80 mph and handles great. The only repairs I have made were over 12 replacements of heater blower fan control switches and the whole heating system replaced, other than that just the regular repairs. I would buy another but with a newer heater system

gets me home and doesn't break down it only breaks down at home thank god.

Cons

I Would Buy Another But With A Newer Heater System — I bought this car brand new and I am still driving it with 79K on it. Everything on it still works as it should. but the heater blower system eats fan control switches like candy I did a lot of research on this car before buying it, I bought the car goes GREAT in the snow. I always run 35 - 45 on the slippery roads with no trouble and I have gone through powder snow that was coming over the hood. It also handles good on dry roads as well I had it up to 90 mph and handles great. The only repairs I have made were over 20 replacements of heater blower fan control switches and 1 fuel injector, other than that just the regular repairs. I would buy another but with a newer heater system. .

Pros

It's small

Cons

It's slow

Try To Find Something Else — Accerleration SUCKS. Brakes are going OUT. Handling is good since I just got new tires. Doesn't need repairs except a big dent on the side. And the brake routers are starting to GO! The only thing good about it is the tinted windows and stereo systems. Interior is nothing special, but it's nice cloth. Gas to fill up at BP is 30$ 12 gallon car. This car is not fun to drive, it's not the worst either, believe me I have driven worse~

Everything A Car Should Be. — Lack of power in the 2 letter engine. Not fast, below average cars in power. most 2 letter engines put out 160-200 Horse power, this one put around 140... Cheep window switch but everything else is excellent. Very fun car.

Cons

the seats arent comfy

The Elantra — this car runs forever. all it needs a is a little routine check ups and this car will go on and on. its actually really fun to drive too. the interior is roomy, but the seats aren't the comfiest, and sometimes the car squeaks. when you turn. overall this car is very good and its a great commuter.

Pros

Cheap to own and operate

Cons

Look stupid doing it

Commuter — Good little commuter car, very weak on the power, but its not really supposed to go fast. Interior is good, nice build quality. Being a hatchback it has a lot of room when you put the rear seats down. Had great reliability with mine, routine maintenance was very inexpensive, even more so because I did most all of it myself. Overall a great little car.

I Love It — The acceleration is WOW..Its really fun to drive and the AC is freezing.Its much more economical than the Volvo..The handling is not bad at all... Handles like a bigger car. The engine is very quiet...you can barely hear it as you drive.

Good Little Trouper Of A Car — I've had this car for the last 7 years of its life, mostly needed for commuting (60 miles round trip, at first; 78 after an office move), with the occasional road trip hauling my parents somewhere. It's been quite fine for the commute and the occasional passengers have found it comfortable enough. A/c never let me down in south FL heat; basic (cassette) stereo's had satisfying sound with my mp3 player du jour. And I was surprised to find this model was only marked for 22/30ish mpg - for the first four years, I saw more like 28/38. It's been quite a reliable, safe-seeming little car. Got rear-ended at a red light two months after I bought it - older driver in a Toyota used me to brake down from 30+ miles per hour, but my car actually looked better than his did and I wasn't injured, which impressed me a lot, for my first-ever accident. It's also easily gotten me home several times through flooded major roads (due to tropical storms) that were stranding and ruining similar-looking small sedans all over the place. 95k+ miles later, I'm searching for its replacement, and due to the surprising mpg, the reliability ('til recent transmission woes), and safety features, I don't think I'll be looking away from Hyundai. Great little car; I'm very fond of it.

Road handling very Good

Cons

Soft body

Hyundai 1600 Elantra — Very Economical about 15 to 16Km's per Litre, spacious, not afraid to overtake while going 160, plenty power left without gearing down to fourth. Interior is standard vinyl cover seats, a bit light gets dirty very easy. Car is fun to drive, Got 57000Km's on the clock and no rattles and squicks thusfar. Would have liked MAG rims on the car though. Imobiliser is giving problems with central locking etc. Nice car to Pimp if needed. Plenty Boot space. Perfect for Golfclubs and scuba gear.

Pros

Heated sideview mirrors

Cons

Bumpers dent easy due to large air pockets

Sedan — I like the heated side-view mirrors even though they cost about $100 to replace just the glass piece. I dont like the keyless entry key that comes standard with the car. Pretty good stock speakers for a midsize sedan, with alot of easy accessable tunk space.
