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.

Pros

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 :)

Cons

A little noisy.

2001 Elantra General Review — With some suspension upgrades, it handles very nicely. With some exterior mods it looks very nice. It does not under perform but doesn't have the best performance, decent for a 4 cyl. Engine runs a little noisy but not to bad. Stock speakers are very decent, but I upgraded anyway. Great MPG. Low maintenance. Interior is comfortable and i am 6' 3".

It looked awesome

Cons

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

305

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.

Not Bad — This car was much better than I had thought it would be. It reminds me of a nice early 1990s Volvo. The car is kind of dated and average in just about every way- but that is ok when you save some money. Hyundai has finally given the world a good everyday vehicle. I also think the car has a unique look- although it is not gorgeous. I've driven been a passanger and driver in this car for VERY long periods of time and I have no complaints. You can really use this car for a lot of different purposes and, if you don't expect tons, it will not let you down.

Nice. — 1.6L with Power Steering, Electric Windows, Air-Con. Performance and Handling was better than expected from a 1.6L Estate.
