Hyundai Touring: A Success.... — I've had the Elentra Touring GL for a little over 6 months. Up to now, I have been very happy with it. The European style car is solid on the road with its very tight steering and easy to reach instruments let it be cruise control, air conditionning, storage areas, etc. It has 138 horse power (it is the same engine as the regular Elentra...but the similarities stop there) and although some say that its not much for a car that size, its plenty for your daily usage. This isn't a race car afterall and comparing the engin to it is unfair. The inside looks great and well done. It has it's hint of luxury inside but what I really like is the dashboard with it beautiful blue lights at night. Wow! This is a family car and the hatchback has a lot more room than some bigger vehicules. Manual says that an oil change is due every 6 months or 6000k (which ever comes first). This alone now shows the realibility and quality of Hyundai products these days. I had a Caliber before this and although this is more confortable and more equipped than the Caliber, the fun factor of the Caliber isn't there as much. This doesn't mean that its a boring drive but there was this little special thing that the Caliber seem to have over this one (it's a personal thing I guess). Up to now I only have two negatives: The wheel caps are cheap and don't seem to go along with the rest of the quality they put in this car. They are made of some sort of plastic. As I was getting used to my new angles for this car a nicked the side of the sidewalk and it broke my front right cap. I hit the side of sidewalks occasionally for parking in past vehicles and it never made a dent. That is something that needs to be improved upon. The other thing is gas milage. The stats are wrong. On highway, I can go as low as 6.2L/100km which is awesome but city driving (stop and go) my trip computer indicates up to 12.4L/100km which is way more than advertise. This gives you an average of 9.3L/100km. My old Saturn and Caliber did way better than that as an average. Good thing I do mostly highway.... Other than that, this car is a must get if you have or planning a family. It looks great, its comfy, it has a lot of features whatever version you get. And it has tons of room to put strollers, boxes, etc.

Driving Is Finally Fun Again — I'm very happy with my 2009 Hyundai Elantra Touring, Manual. It's hard to find a manual that doesn't feel cheap or weak. I am finally enjoying driving again. I thought I would miss my minivan, but I haven't at all. The hatchback is exactly what I needed for shopping and work. Filling the gas tank usually costs me about $30.00 and I can drive about 300 miles which is fantastic compared to my minivan that used $75.00 worth of gas every two weeks.

65418951 — only 1200 miles on it and it is just what I wanted. good gas mileage, good pick up, and quite roomy and a great radio.

Pros

I love everything about this car; size, comfort, sound, Bluetooth phone capacity with address book, passenger comfort - tall and short, storage capacity, fuel economy, Hyundai service center people, safety, visibility, compliments I receive from others, etc...

Cons

The only minor thing is that you have a little more road noise with the 17" Alloy wheels.

!!**2009 Hyundai Elantra Touring - Auto Trans **!! — As noted above, this is a wonderful car and I chose it due to the web reviews that I read as well as the looks of the car; designed after a German designed vehicle with great engineering, great warranty, safety, fuel economy, enjoy the pep and comfort, audio system and capabilities, all the options included, great and pleasant service provided at dealership - they'll even give you a car to use while they service the vehicle, and too much more to write here. You need to see it and drive it to fully appreciate it.
