As Generic As It Gets. — It's hard to imagine a duller car than the Elantra. I test drove one, and, let me put it this way. If you've driven any boring econo-box made in the last 15 years, you,ve driven an elantra. The engine was blah, the suspension and tires were so-so, you get the point. I wanted to test drive a new one, but the sleazy salesmen wouldn't let me. They kept saying "What's wrong with the used one?" Nothing, but there was nothing right about it either.

Pros: Cheap.

Cons: Overall lack of anything memorable.

03 Hyundai Elantra Gls — It is a very reliable car, however the body gets dinged up easily. The car is great on gas mileage. And most performance parts have to come from Korea(talk about shipping costs alone). Definitely he best warranty out there.

Pros: Fuel Economy, smooth ride, very reliable, great warranty

Cons: Hyundai

Decent, Affordable Compact Car — Decent car... not as good gas mileage as I'd expect, but not awful. At 50,000 miles, not too many problems, aside from the hatchback hydraulic lift not working, the emergency brake snapped, and the interior fan having 2 settings: full-blast and off. Acceleration is acceptable, but this is partly thanks to the manual transmission. Not the coolest looking car on the road, but not too ugly. Interior isn't bad, thanks to the charcoal leather seats.

Pros: Comfortable seats, decent styling, plenty of cargo room.

Cons: Gas mileage, minor physical break-downs.

Ok — I have mixed feelings about this car. Sometimes it accelerated quickly, but other times it would take forever to get going. It had great brakes, they worked perfectly, and I didnt have to even think of replacing them the whole time I owned the car. It handled pretty well, but it was kinda of stiff going around sharp turns. It was a nice looking car, but it wasnt stylish or sporty. The interior was nice, kinda cramped in the back for a sedan though. It had great gas mileage which is the only thing I really miss about it. The one bad thing that I hated about this car is that it kept sqealing almost every time I started the car. I replaced the altanator belt twice and took it to a mechanic like 3 or 4 times. They told me the last time it was my timing belt and that they fixed it but not even a mth later it was back to squealing again. It was pretty fun to drive it went pretty fast too.

Pros: Fast, Good gas mileage

Cons: Maintenance

Good To Start With — A great car to commute with or start with, this is what i am doing until i get a Mustang. A lot of good qualities outweigh the negative.

Pros: smooth ride, quiet no issues, brakes, space

Cons: color, wheels, interior, not sporty

Ugh... Horrible Thing — Drove it for 2 years, you get them up to 60 mph and they shake due to a design flaw with the front axel (supposedly fixed in a recall). Smoothed out past 80 mph though!

Pros: Got good gas mileage and was pretty comfortable, engine was solid - never had any issues over 100,000 miles.

Cons: Terrible handling and loose accelerator.  The A/C sucked.

It was in my price range. I asked a tow driver who is also a mechanic and he stated that he rarely towed them or worked on them so I guess that would make them pretty reliable. Read More
