1996 Hyundai Elantra GLS Sedan FWDReview

Buy Something Else. —

Everything about this car is very 'meh'. It's acceleration isn't too bad. The 1.8 litre DOHC 4 cylinder engine can get you from 0 to 100kmh in about 12 seconds, which isn't horrific for a small/med sedan, but can easily be out-dragged by almost any more modern car. These cars do not last very well. The starter motor went on me at about 105,000 kms. Mind you I did buy it second hand and I don't think the previous owners took any care of it at all. I've recently had to get the whole clutch, muffler and brakes replaced all at about 150,000 kms. It seems to be made for very short people. Sitting in the drivers seat I feel very elevated. I'm 6ft tall and don't feel all the comfortable, though you do get used to it. On the fuel it's actually not too bad. I tend to fill up about once every week or 2. I can't give a specific number of litres-per-100 k's, but I think if I did measure it I'd be reasonably satisfied. Because it's a cheap car I really don't care for it too much so I'm happy to thrash it around a bit.

Pros: Cheap and easy to find. Relatively good on the fuel.

Cons: Doesn't last.

Nice One To Drive. — It was black, comfortable, economic, had enough of space for people and cargo.

Pros: Small and fast.

Cons: Couldn't find it.
