2003 Hyundai Elantra

The 2003 Hyundai Elantra comes with a single engine: a 135 hp, 2.0 liter inline 4-cylinder engine.  Two transmissions are available: the standard 5 speed manual or the optional 4 speed automatic.  Gas mileage is around 25 miles per gallon city miles and 33 highway miles.  Certainly not a powerful car, the 2003 Hyundai Elantra has plenty to help drivers get from point a to point B.

Compared to luxury, touring sedans, the 2003 Hyundai Elantra may seem a little sparse, but there is plenty of comfort for the price.  Air conditioning, cruise control, power windows and power locks a CD player, a trip computer, a leather steering cover and leather seats are all available, either standard or optional, depending on the trim, of which there are now three.  The 4 door GT adds the lineup in 2003.  In case the worst happens, driver, passenger and side airbags are standard on all three trims.  

Owners seem to have a lot of great things to say about the 2003 Hyundai Elantra.  The gas mileage is raved about, as are the few problems that the Elantra has.  People like the way it looks and the way it drives.  Like all cars, however, there were some commonly recurring issues.  Due to the small engine, there is little acceleration.  The interior parts and anything made of plastic aren't anything special, and the 2003 Hyundai Elantra doesn't hold resale value any better than a colander holds water.  But if you can live with minor problems like these, then the 2003 Hyundai Elantra could be a fabulous commuter vehicle.
