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.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

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

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.
