An Awesome Amazing Powerful Little Car — I love my Hyundai Elantra GT so much, it has great amount of power with a 4 cylinder and a two-liter engine that can max out at 140 which btw is so much fun. This car is fun to drift with on gravel, back in VA I would do that all the time with my bf. You should try it sometimes. She's still running smoothly after 7 years.

Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

Pros: It has great gas mileage and it's a manual which I love to drive.

Cons: It needs a new clutch right now and the parts are $250 :(

I Don't Like It — It suicks, I have nothing but problems with this car. I paid more for repairs then I did for the car. If you need a timing belt ($600) new hoses and belts ($500). Tires($300), breaks, plugs, break line and other stuff($1000). Don't buy one.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: there are none

Cons: it's a lemon

Hyundai, Save Your Pennies For Something Better — Replaced Engine at 100,800 and tranny at 75,000. Besides that its a good car :P. Ineterior is nice, rides smooth, lots of room for passengers and cargo. Not a bad car for the price but I wish the engine would have made it past 100,000. I use Amsoil Synthetic in everything so it should have. But is didn't.

Pros: Comfortable, affordable

Cons: Not dependable

Hyundai Elantra Gls — Was a good car to drive. Never had any problems out of it the whole time I owned. Easy to keep clean and running well. Great gas mileage and fuel efficiency. Very spacious and very comfortable to drive. All of the extra features were useful and conveniently place for satisfaction.

Pros: Nice car to drive, easy maintain and customize.

Cons: Too slow straight from factory.

Review Title — its an okay car but its a little small and the engine doesnt have much kick. it does come with a good stock exhaust though. Also, after it sits for a few hours the gas pedal gets a little touchy and it doesnt always respond really well right after starting

Pros: gas mileage

Cons: engine size

Very Cheap Import — The latest addition to vehicles owned. Bought it from the Hyundai dealer I used to work at. Was thinking of buying another Civic, but 4 door, howver considering the price, it was newer and had less mileage. As a bonus, I worked on these cars everyday, so I kind of know them.

Pros: Economic, easy to fix, import

Cons: None at the moment

Bought To Park In The Bus Lot — I wanted a commuter car that I could feel OK about leaving in an unattended parking lot and feeling pretty sure that it wasn't going to be the one targeted... Then I had to stop riding the bus. Then I had to get an automatic because my knee couldn't keep up with the shifting. Plus it was uninspiring and I had to spend 12 hours a week in it.

Pros: Decent car.  No functional concerns.  Perfect for why I originally got it.

Cons: Boring.  Manual transmission was wearing out my knee joint in heavy traffic.  And mine was the color of dirt.  I don't miss it.

The Little Car That Could —

This little car has been a great addition. It has been a solid little performer since day 1. I think Hyundai has come a long, long way from the days of the Excel. I've put on 12 years worth of mileage on this car in less than 6 so I have had the opportunity to get to know this car real well. Mind you, this car is no race car, but it will confidently cruise at 80mph all day long and not miss a bit. Considering this car cost less that 15k when I got it, it was very well equipped, with leather interior, a very nice sounding stereo, comfortable seating, and even some nice extras like heated mirrors and foglamps. This car has been a godsend, because of it's low cost to own and drive, and because it has been a very capable little vehicle. It is a 5-door version of the Elantra and with the rear fold down seating which is 70/30 split, there are different options for carrying a mix of people and cargo. I've driven this car cross country and it has consistently delivered 32-34mpg on the highway, which has given us a range of about 380 to almost 400 miles per tank without us really worrying about pushing it. Of course keeping the car well maintained has been a key factor, but definitely those are good numbers for a car that was rated at 26mpg city/31mpg highway.

Pros: Very economical to drive and own.  Very verastile little car and surprisingly roomy.

Cons: Some replacement parts cost way too much money. For example, $890.00 bucks for a replacement rear qaurter glass.

Pros: great MPG.

Cons: cheap and bland interior.
