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

Great For The Budget Minded Driver Who Still Wants Some Kick To The Morning Commute! — I love everything about this car, especially its fuel efficiency while still being very peppy and sporty! It's got huge potential for modding, even though it requires $$ to do it. There are many out there who think it can't be done/that it's not designed that way, but they are very wrong!

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: sporty but economical

Cons: fuel efficiency with performance

What I Said In The Other Section — I like the car it's been Great.Lot's of possiative reviews. It's been highest ranked compact car in Initial quality by JD Power Associates. (Glad I did my Reseach) I don't like the performance but it does get you where you got to go.I must say it's not bad passing but off the line it sucks!!!28 mpg easy.Exterior looks good I keep it clean but it does scratch very easy. Interior is awesome especially at night it's all blue headlights work better then any other car i had. Other then regular maintance I have not put a dime in the car. Had some problems when I first got it but turned out to be a recall later in the year so it was not the car it self. The car is fun to drive very confortable interior seats I get alot of comments .The front and rear seats are good for long periods of riding. Kick A** heat and a/c will kick you out the car.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Good Car Lots of Features for the price GREAT warranty Highly Rated car in alot of reviews

Cons: Performance-Paint scratch-Cheap plasic cracks alot in bad weather-Tires go fast

Great Car - Had It For Over A Year And It's Great — Great price for all the features, 100% redesigned from 2006 and bigger. Consumer Reports said it beat the Corolla and all down the ratings are Best for 2007 and 2008. Gets great gas mileage. Decent acceleration, great reliability, brakes are tight after 1 year and lots of room.

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: Comfortable, fun to drive, good on gas and plenty of room.

Cons: Inside plastics can scratch easily.

A Great Buy — Well built car, handles nice, great on gas, could use a bit more leg room inside. The exterior design of the car is nice and the interior dash lightning is eye catching and very futuristic looking. You should definitely get the sunroof though.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Fuel Economy

Cons: Interior Space

I Love It — THis is my 2nd Hyundai and I love em!!! They get great gas mileage and you can't beat the warranty. I think my car looks good and handles very well. I have a standard transmission and it shifts well. It could use more power but oh well

Pros: the gas mileage

Cons: not very powerful

A Better Elantra...now Waiting For An Even Better One. — The 2007+ Elantra is a lot better than the previous Elantra model. Although this is still not a car that I believe comes even close to that of a Mazda 3. To drive the engine this time around seems to have better performance than last time. The only thing worse from last time is the power steering, its boosted nearly to the levels of the 2009 Corolla. The brake pedal is too sensitive, certain cars stop abruptly which is very annoying and uncomfortable. The interior is more high quality than last time and is put together a lot better. The only problem with this interior is its still bland like last time. I haven't found any reliability issue with this car which is surprisingly since the Accents have quite a few. Its reasonably fuel efficient and inexpensive to buy. The styling I give low marks, not because it looks terrible but its a rip off of a Toyota Corolla. I consider that unacceptable. Overall the car is rather average, not that great to drive but alright on the inside.

Pros: Better interior, reasonably fuel efficient, priced well

Cons: Power steering over boosted, brake pedal too sensitive, copycat styling

I Hate This Car — UUGGHH, I hate this car. I feel like im driving a clown car. I hit my head on the ceiling all the time, i bang my elbows all around since there's no elbow room. The horn sounds like a mouse being shocked (it may well be, since i think under the hood is a hamster wheel) and lastly its no fun what-so-ever to drive. one positive is i dont have to feed the mice all the time.

Pros: good fuel econ

Cons: everything else
