Cons: Financing at the Nemet dealership
Advice: Go for the test driveI just brought an Elantra GLS and I love it. I havent said that about a car since my 67 Pontiac Firebird. It runs circles around anything else I have ever owned. Great gas mileage, price, performance and warrenty. Looks good too!
Pros: zip 0 to 60 to get merged on these super highways.
Cons: no lock on the glove compartment to kept the valet from browsing your personals and tollchange.
Advice: use it hard and get that full warranty.pretty close to looking like the nissan max,but lacks interior room and getaway oomph!
Pros: everything...I honestly have yet to find a flaw
Cons: the only thing that gets me is that the front doors don't open from the inside when locked...i was used to that in my old car
Advice: go into the dealer with high expectations and they'll be metI got the car about 3 weeks ago and I am in love with it. Everyone says I have a 'new love in my life'. Great gas mileage, fun to drive! I'm eagerly awaiting hotter summer weather so I can roll the windows down, open the moonroof, turn up the music and cruise. Can't beat the warranty, am paying less for a brand new car than I did on my old used piece of junk! Can't say enough...great car.
Cons: Fuel computer doesn't show instantaneous mileage.
Advice: Ignore competitors' disparaging remarks; drive it and decide for yourself.We tested comparable Hondas, Toyotas, and a few Detroit cars. None compared with the perceived value, warranty, and driving experience. Seats aren't as comfy as my truck, but are better than other foreign cars. It's not a sports car, but brings back the feeling of 'motoring' -- it's a stylish, comfortable, dignified platform for getting from A to B. Felt noticeably smoother and quieter than others tested. Other XG owners stop and talk -- reminds me of the MG cameraderie of the 50s. Now have 7K miles since 12/2001 with zero problems.
Pros: The appearance and cargo space
Cons: Engine size is a factor, however its not an off road vehicle, how often does the average person in an SUV find it necessary to pump through 220hp?
Advice: Drive it, price it an don't be fooled by Ford's over priced vehiclesThis vehicle sums up what the average SUV driver practically needs, lots of space, an amazing appearance and, unbelievable warranty (and price) the list goes on and on, oh ya plus its not a mini-van!!!!!!!!!
Cons: getting into the back seat
Advice: buy it.I love the feel behind the wheel. It has a smooth ride and it is responsive.
Pros: THE LOOKS
Cons: More power for the 4 cylinder.
Advice: If you can afford it buy the V6!!!Hi, I bought the 4 cylinder stick-tib(because thats the one I could afford!) This car LOOKS GREAT and it runs pretty good too. I test drove the v6 and it does have power. The car is great for the price! If your a small person it will be a better fit. The inside is small but comfortable.
