Worse Than a Yugo
By Mark Palmer on

Vehicle

1992 Hyundai Elantra 4dr Sedan

Review

This was the worst new car I ever owned, and I never drove it hard. It was at the dealership for repairs over 15 times in three years. It started out with numerous electrical problems. The 5 speed transmission was rebuilt at 15k miles. The throttle body went at 30k, the front end components at 40k. There were many other numerous issues also, too many to mention. Finally, its timing belt broke at 50k miles, which threw all of its exhaust valves into the pistons. It was rebuilt, but I was fed up with it at that point and sold it. Way too much downtime. DO NOT buy a 1992-1995 Hyundai Elantra as a used car. They are horrible!

Favorite Features

A good looking and comfortable car.

Suggested Improvements

Hyundai did not address the timing belt issues with these engines until 1995! Three years to address obvious defects is way too long. They finally admitted there were problems with the gears the timing belt drives after millions of people were out thousands of dollars.
