I have a 1995 Hyundai Elantra. This car has lasted longer than any car that I have ever had. My husband keeps up the regular maintenance and oil changes. It takes off like a jet and is a smooth ride even after 14 years. The only problem that we have had is the gear shift sticking and the door handles needing repair. When taking off this car leaves the others in the dust!
I like the room inside of the car and the seats are comfortable. The design is nice.
I suggest better gear boxes and inside handles on the doors. They got to the point where the front driver and passenger doors would not open from the inside but were not expensive to get repaired.
