    2006 Hyundai Elantra

    Pros: Gas mileage

    Cons: Small space

    I have enjoyed this car because of the good gas mileage. I have not had to have any repair work done to this vehicle. My family is getting bigger therefor I need a larger vehicle.

    2006 Hyundai Elantra

    Bargain Hunter

    Pros: Gas mileage is incredible

    Cons: Not the sexiest car on the block

    This car may not carry the 'status' of a BMW, which I owned before this purchase, but for the low price, it is truely outstanding. I had an accident in my precious 328I and to repair the left rear door and quarter panal, it would have cost me over $10,000! I said forget it and went shopping for a car that wouldn't have such high maintenance costs. I've had this car for 3 months now and it is so comfortable and reliable I've fallen in love with it. It may not have the same zoom as a BMW, but I just don't need that anymore. I would recommend the Elantra to anyone who is not trying to impress their neigbors, but may wish to impress their own bank account.

    2006 Hyundai Elantra - GLS (M5) Sedan

    Pros: Suspension/ Handling

    Cons: Could use more power but adequate

    Advice: Go for it! Best bang for the buck warranty and quality wise.

    I usded to do a lot of rallies and autocross so I know something about suspension and this is as good as it gets. I am an ex mechanics and have driven Supras, T/As and others but this suspension is as good as any. The car will rotate in the middle of the turn like she's on rails. The engine is small but she has the power and as for fuel economy, I am getting 28 MPG on a not yet fully broken in engine [should go up]. This is for my daughter in college and between the warranty and the standard equipment list I am very happy. Best bang for the money. Everyone tells me they would buy another if need should arise. I am happy as yet!

    2006 Hyundai Elantra - GLS (M5) Sedan

    Pros: Peppy engine with 5-spd tranny

    Cons: Softer suspension than expected, but very drivable due to grippy low-ratio tires

    Advice: Ask for the same deal as the advertised 'This car only' deal, then pick your car from the lot with whatever options; you may get the lower price

    Researched, researched, and researched...after loosing 13-yr old Ford Escort to old age. Competition could not compare in price, features, and quality, including Ford Focus (A disappointment to my all Ford stable). This car replaces my primary commuter car from home to Washington DC area, a 180 mile round trip. At six months old, my 4-dr, 5-spd has over 20K miles with no complaints. Suggest you get the Moonroof/ABS/Traction option which also adds rear disc brakes (not obvious from literature - I almost purchased 5-dr just to get rear discs when I didn't need the 5-dr). Car has performed wonderfully in my mix of high-speed and bumper-to-bumper interstate driving, with city driving around home on weekends. May start a new trend in my driveway.

    2006 Hyundai Elantra - GLS (M5) Sedan

    Pros: turn radius is outstanding

    Cons: mpg in city were a bit low @ 27 mpg

    Advice: It's a good commuter vehicle

    I had to get a new car and didn't have a lot to spend. I stumbled across a Hyundai Elantra 4 door sedan. I found it to be a pretty comprehensive vehicle standardly equipped with a lot of options. It is a solid choice for a budget concious shopper and/or commuter. My wife also owns a Hyundai Elantra as well. It's nice to be able to drive a new car when I thought I'd have to buy used.
