Like a Timex
Pros: Sirius Radio built in
Cons: has the pick-up of Betty White after she was tackled.It just keeps on tickin' - watch your maintainance and service suggestions, and the 'baby beast of the East' cranks out mile after mile at about 31-32mpg.
Pros: gas mileage
Cons: rear and side rear visibilityCar performs well. It has plenty of power and great braking with 4-W disc brakes. It is almost as roomy as my old Maxima. Icing on the cake is relative low purchase price and excellent gas mileage on the highway.
Cons: slow brake
Advice: On regular care you will never feel mistake working with this workhorse. He has a good gene and spirit.I bought 2003 Elantra 6 yrs ago due to Edmands and Consummer report reviews.My job is 35 miles away and I drove about 20000 miles average per yr on freeway.During that period,no problem, roadside stop, repairment nothing.Onetime,nailed tire flat on I-405,but easy to handle with ESC.Changed cracked radiator (my wife hit the wall).Some cars can be the best and better than Elantra,but will be rare to compete his reliability.6yrs,118M,day or night,sunny,rainy or foggy,I feel safety and reliability with my lovely,good spirited workhorse,never insecure. Thank you very much guys,you did right reviews.
Pros: Really roomy for a small car
Advice: Enjoy the ride!I was looking at the Honda Fit and after driving it the Elantra caught my eye on the lot next door. There was no comparison. More comfortable,more powerful,much quieter and the feature content is beyond compare. I am really enjoying this car.
