    2010 Hyundai Elantra

    Never a Hyundai again!

    Pros: radio

    Cons: steering wheel doesn't tilt and it's electric steering system

    I live upstate New York, in the Hudson valley. I previously owned a 2001 Buick Century, as for perfomace, ride, comfort, fuel mileage and buying parts for this Elantra, the ole Buick is my favorite choice. I'll be kicking myself for 5 yrs for not buying the Chevy Impala or similar GM models for an additional $1,500. I really feel ashame that I allowed the dealer to con me into believing the Elantra to be a better choice, especially on the account of the better warranty. Yeah this car will last a long time, it just sits in my driveway to remind me of the stupidity I was with door nicks in the side panel.

    2010 Hyundai Elantra

    Best bang for the buck!

    Pros: solidness

    Cons: material on console armrest looks like it might wrinkle with use

    This car drives bigger than it is. In other words it's demeanor from the drivers seat is more midsize whereas it's demeanor from the outside is more compact. Very nice ride...firm yet not harsh. Acceleration is not rocket-like but that's not what you're expecting either. My combined city/highway mpg is about 24+. And that's about 80/20 (city/hwy). Very roomy interior, comfortable seats, stereo is better than average but certainly not spectacular (comes with 3 months free trial of satellite radio) I had a 2002 Elantra which never gave me a bit of trouble. At this price, I don't think any other manufacturer can compete. My wife's Nissan Versa is pretty close, but it's also more expensive and doesn't have the warranty that the Elantra has. If you're looking for this type of car, you cant bypass the Elantra. Test drive it. I'd be surprised if you didn't chose it over other comparably priced cars.

    2002 Hyundai Elantra

    Great Value Car

    Pros: Value

    Cons: Trunk latch; a head banger!

    This car has been great for my daily commute, about 75 minutes each way each day. Great milage - about 30mpgs - sun roof is great in spring & fall, and now has 150,000+ miles with no major problems. Will keep it as long as I can.

    2008 Hyundai Elantra

    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.

    2008 Hyundai Elantra

    Great value

    Pros: gas mileage

    Cons: rear and side rear visibility

    Car 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.
