Cons

Nothing

It Rocks!! — Car is great! Good on gas mileage and fun to drive! Very stylish and interior coloring goes with exterior. Cost of ownership is resonable no unnecessary maintenance costs just standard oil changes and checkups. It also performs like a dream.

Gas Mileage is good!

Cons

Acceleration

An Economical Yet Sleek And Well Designed Car — I loved everything except the acceleration. A bit sluggish. Everythinjg else was very nice! I love the blue lit display and the comfort. The gas mileage is great and it is pretty fun to drive. Its also very sleek in its design and user intuitive controls.

Cons

Very Light

Nice — Its a smooth ride..great on gas, and does'nt look like a real "family" car until you get in. Is a little light on the snow though...go easy, other people drive like crap! The compactness of it is nice though it is very roomy as well. Very happy with this choice.

Great For The Budget Minded Driver Who Still Wants Some Kick To The Morning Commute! — I love everything about this car, especially its fuel efficiency while still being very peppy and sporty! It's got huge potential for modding, even though it requires $$ to do it. There are many out there who think it can't be done/that it's not designed that way, but they are very wrong!

Pros

Comfortable, fun to drive, good on gas and plenty of room.

Cons

Inside plastics can scratch easily.

Great Car - Had It For Over A Year And It's Great — Great price for all the features, 100% redesigned from 2006 and bigger. Consumer Reports said it beat the Corolla and all down the ratings are Best for 2007 and 2008. Gets great gas mileage. Decent acceleration, great reliability, brakes are tight after 1 year and lots of room.

Fuel Economy

Cons

Interior Space

A Great Buy — Well built car, handles nice, great on gas, could use a bit more leg room inside. The exterior design of the car is nice and the interior dash lightning is eye catching and very futuristic looking. You should definitely get the sunroof though.

I Love It — THis is my 2nd Hyundai and I love em!!! They get great gas mileage and you can't beat the warranty. I think my car looks good and handles very well. I have a standard transmission and it shifts well. It could use more power but oh well

Pros

Better interior, reasonably fuel efficient, priced well

Cons

Power steering over boosted, brake pedal too sensitive, copycat styling

665

A Better Elantra...now Waiting For An Even Better One. — The 2007+ Elantra is a lot better than the previous Elantra model. Although this is still not a car that I believe comes even close to that of a Mazda 3. To drive the engine this time around seems to have better performance than last time. The only thing worse from last time is the power steering, its boosted nearly to the levels of the 2009 Corolla. The brake pedal is too sensitive, certain cars stop abruptly which is very annoying and uncomfortable. The interior is more high quality than last time and is put together a lot better. The only problem with this interior is its still bland like last time. I haven't found any reliability issue with this car which is surprisingly since the Accents have quite a few. Its reasonably fuel efficient and inexpensive to buy. The styling I give low marks, not because it looks terrible but its a rip off of a Toyota Corolla. I consider that unacceptable. Overall the car is rather average, not that great to drive but alright on the inside.

Fuel Efficient, Safe, Reliable, Comfortable Ride By hondasabre

There's nothing I don't like about this car, except that I used to have a 2007 Elantra SE trim, (not a GLS) so I miss the sportier aluminum rims and the steering wheel audio controls. Its a great car ... Read More
