Pros

Love the car. Except for replacing taillight bulbs a couple times, it's only been routine maintenance. Good gas mileage (not as good as Consumer Reports says, but pretty good). Looks great. I'm big; front seat has plenty of room (especially headroom) for me. Great trip car. Very comfortable.

Cons

No spare tire (buy your own).
Position of the air vents is not optimal - no air on the legs, for example.
Watch out for blind spots when you pass - the window supports obscure a bit.

Great Car, Many Features At A Great Price. — Great car, many features for the price. Great mileage, low maintenance. Slick appearance. Very comfortable, roomy. Not quite as peppy as a Mazda3 (which was my 2nd choice), but peppy enough. Good handling, fun to drive. I use it mainly for commuting to work, but it's a great trip car. Love the car, would recommend it to anyone and would buy this model again in a heartbeat.

Great Value !! — l love the appearance but the handling is fantastic !! It feels much larger when you inside and I feel safe in it with all the current safety options that comes standard . This car was the perfect choice for me and my wife to commute back and forth to work as well as trips! Meets the overall gas mileage that we we're looking for as well as enough comfort !!

Poor Fit — the fit on the dashboard is way off one side has 1/4 gap other inside is tight if I had seen this in the test drive would have passed on the car. But that's my fault .would had been nice if the salesman had pointed it out .Dream on.

Excellent, Reliable Vehicle — Amazing, reliable, fantastic vehicle. Awesome in the rain, sleet, or snow, Never had any problems with this car whatsoever. Only problem is that my second child is on the way and i need something with a bigger back set, As i am now going to need room for two car seats and not just one.

Pros

One of the top values on the road in the commuter car class, good looking, gets top safety ratings (important for a family man) and gets good MPG's.

Cons

Not overly exciting to drive but very functional

Great Practical Car — I've enjoyed the car and it's run perfectly with no problems. I average in the low 30's for MPG's. The car was a lease with a low payment and the low payment is a result of Hyundai's improved status in the automotive landscape and stronger resale value.

Pros

This is a great commuter or long trip vehicle.  It's comfortable and handles great on the highway, in the mountains and in town.  Fuel economy improves with age.  It's a great car!

Cons

Haven't experienced any.

Awsome! — I purchased this vehicle as a commuter car, and also took in on several long trips. The interior is laid out very nice, driver friendly and very comfortable. It's exterior is also very attractive, and I have received numerous compliments on it. I have found no negatives about this vehicle. I have been impressed with it since I rented one, then purchased one. This vehicle has exceeded my expectations, in all aspects.

Great Car — I love the gas mileage. There is a lot of room inside and also the trunk. Very reliable vehicle. The vehicle is also very stylish. It looks good on the road and handles great. The Elantra is also great in the snow.

Pros

Nice interior, roomy for the size oif the car.  Backseat fits a large toddler carseat well.  Seats are comfortable, dash has an eassy-to-use layout.  Good climate control.

Cons

Mileage is terrible, transmission was replaced at 36,000, very rough ride, does not come with a spare tire.

Disappointed — I bought it from a rental company with 30,000 miles. I have driven it 6,000 and already had the transmission replaced and a software update after getting a P2096 error code. I bought this car for its relatively roomy interior, reliability, and gas milege. It is obviously NOT reliable, and the mileage is only 2 mpg better than I got on my 1999 Camry, about 25.5 mpg. In addition, the ride is so rough I had the suspension checked, but the dealer says it's OK. My car did not come with a spare tire, only that silly goo kit, so I told the salesman I wouldn't buy it without one. He purchased one out of his own pocket, but the manufacturer should provide it. I like the layout of the dashboard and the driver's seat fits my 4'10" height well. The child carseat attaches easily. I drive my toddler grandson about 200 miles/week, so that's important, but of course with a toddler I also need reliability. It handles relatively well, but not as well as my old Camry, and the acceleration is slow. It seems to have to "kick in", almost like a stick shift, even when the car is going at an already high speed. Braking is good,. Frankly, after owning this car for three months/6,000 miles, I would not purchase a Hyundai again.

Great Price For All That You Get — Great price for an amazing car. I also purchased the extended, bumper- to-bumper warranty for an additional $1,200. Which is well worth it since I also purchased the tech. Package, and the extended warranty covers any defects with the tech. Package as well. Great color, inside and out. I got leather seats and it has heated seats in the front and back.Great ride with good pickup for a sedan. In would highly recommend it to anyone.

Nice Small Car — I like how it handled compared to the civic I had previously driven. Interior quality seemed better with more soft touch materials. I liked the options included for the price which was cheaper than the civic I drove by a little more than $1500.
