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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

It looked awesome

Cons

Bad gas mileage, bad build quality, bad gas mileage for a car of this caliper

My Rebound — It was a nice a car I had it 8 months and put 30,000 miles on it. At 90,000 miles I had to replace the caliper and rotor after the caliper froze, I was constantly breaking wheel studs because they where weak and it needed the whole front suspension replaced.

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.

gas mileage, 5-speed stick

Cons

power steering pump pisses me off

25

Its Great Car For The Price I Paid — the power steering pump belts keep coming loose, and the emissions duiring winter always make my check engine light go on. overall this is a good car for the money i paid, it doesn't help that i have 280k miles on it :)
