1993 Hyundai Elantra 4dr Sedan


Review

I got one of these in 2004 with 275k km on it, automatic transmission. It had one owner prior to me, treated with care. I took this car and drove it from Toronto Ontario to Kelowna British Columbia and back (9000km round trip) - I drove at 120 km p/h the whole way, in the mountains, if there was space before an uphill section I would floor the pedal and put it into 2nd on the uphill passing lanes just to keep it at 80km p/h. I could smell the oil burning, but the car never, ever overheated or broke down. Also drove Toronto to New York 10 times in a year and did not go easy on the car, but it was fine. Other than that it was used for commuting. throttle went and I let it die. GREAT CAR

The only car I've ever owned that need absolutely no repairs for the entire 10 years. No cost except for fuel and basic maintenance.

Review

My friends had me talked into the Accent, I drove it, I hated it. They had the Elantra on the lot, I gave it a spin, and I loved it! I was looking for a manual transmission 4 door sedan, and this one had it all. It's been a good, reliable car, and really good mileage for its time (I've never gotten less than 25mpg, even with city and stop-and-go freeway driving with air conditioning). I'll be going up a class on my next car (next <2yrs), but I have NO regrets on my Elantra.


Favorite Features

Cloth seats, rocker locks, slide out cupholder (see below).


Suggested Improvements

Cupholder a little too close to the dash (taller water bottles tend to tumble). Adhesive pinstriping peeled off with normal wear WAY too soon, paint on mirrors wasn't very hearty.

Review

This was one of the BEST cars I have ever owned! It was VERY reliable and a VERY quick little car. I drove this thing hard and it never quit. If I ever was in the market for another small car, I would definitely look into buying another one of these.


Favorite Features

Amazingly quick


Suggested Improvements

Better fuel economy, my 2000 Toyota Camry V6 gets better gas mileage than this 4 cylinder car does.

Review

great car for it's price. it has lots of errors in design - however they affect only esthetics. the only mechanical feature is really bad is suspension. you feel avere turn and curve. but if you don't treat it as a sport car it's still accetable - just driving it is less comfortable and threathen passenger. engine is very good - for this light vehicle 124hp is completely enough to give you satisfactory acceleration even at 80- 90mph - which makes passing pretty safe operation


Favorite Features

- reliable gas-saving and pretty powerful engine


Suggested Improvements

- suspension
