Great Value — For the money it hard to beat these newer Hyundais, a very good value. Styled well for an economy car. Paint quality was not great but very reliable. Great on gas, easy to drive and park. Overall a good experience.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Very economical to own, great gas milage

Cons: paint quality

Best First Car Ever — I bought this when gas prices first started to jump, in anticipation of my daughter getting her learner's permit in a year. I loved the car, but the plan was to let her drive it once she turned 16. When she turned 18, I offered to either buy her a newer car or else just let her have the Elantra, and she didn't have to think twice. She was recently hit in a busy intersection, and the car was totaled. The front was badly smashed in, but the entire passenger compartment was 100% *fine*. She is uninjured except for the sore sternum from the seatbelt. She is still mourning the loss of her "Gracie". Thank you, Hyundai, for building such a fun, affordable, economical and safe car that saved my daughter's life!

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: A joy to drive. Amazing price. Good gas mileage

Cons: It got totaled in a recent car wreck

It Rocks!! — Car is great! Good on gas mileage and fun to drive! Very stylish and interior coloring goes with exterior. Cost of ownership is resonable no unnecessary maintenance costs just standard oil changes and checkups. It also performs like a dream.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: It is very fun to drive.

Cons: Nothing

An Economical Yet Sleek And Well Designed Car — I loved everything except the acceleration. A bit sluggish. Everythinjg else was very nice! I love the blue lit display and the comfort. The gas mileage is great and it is pretty fun to drive. Its also very sleek in its design and user intuitive controls.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Gas Mileage is good!

Cons: Acceleration

Hyundai Elantra — A comfortable and well featured for a car trip or other long drive. The I4 seemed lacking, but the controls were responsive and the car felt like it was solid. Braking seemed a bit soft until you really get into the pedal.

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: Cheap, fuel efficiency, comfort.

Cons: Hyundai, cheap, braking, engine.

Nice — Its a smooth ride..great on gas, and does'nt look like a real "family" car until you get in. Is a little light on the snow though...go easy, other people drive like crap! The compactness of it is nice though it is very roomy as well. Very happy with this choice.

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: Ride

Cons: Very Light

Review By Dymond

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
