Purchased the 2013 Elantra GT 8/31/13, no start issues until 11/15/13. Very nice vehicle except it will not start daily without pressing the brake and start button multiple times. Stranded once and called Roadside Assistance. They tightened the positive battery terminal. Also stopped at the dealership later the same day and the negative terminal was tightened. Last problem required 19 attempts to start the vehicle, number 20 was the lucky number. A very frustrating problem, dealership tests showed no problems found, certainly something is going on. Second trip to the dealership Tues. 12/10.
The style is great, love the interior and the ride. The only issue is the push button start.
Would like to be able to by an upgraded vehicle from the dealer without the push button start. Seems that's all that is available on the lots these days. Need more options for those that may not want all the bells and whistles.
