I have the2012 Elantra and am very pleased with the vehicle. I have attained as much as 45 mpg on a road trip. The only con I have is it is hard to see backing up, because of the design of th car. I drove from Va to California and was amazed at how comfortable I was after 2850 miles of driving. That was amazing for a small car. I have had absolutely no problems with the Elantra so far. I also feel that I got a lot for the price. If I had it to do over I would definitely buy this car again.
