I would suggest that you should go for the Elantra. Your friend wont be wrong. Instead of buying an Echo or Rio or Accent (though they are fine cars) for almost the same money she will have a bigger c...

Had someone help me with my car because engine was making a tapping sound, turned out it was lack of oil. Added oil, apparently car burns some oil (1997 Hyundai Elantra, not sure i it actually burns a...

I think the deal was great. We traded in a 1997 Toyota Camry with 170,000 miles in fair condition and bought the silver Elantra Limited with black leather. The car has the normal "limited"...

I'm looking at trading in my Elantra Ltd. with very few miles on it. I asked the non-Hyundai dealership about the transferability of the warranties. I'm not going back to Hyundai. The 100k powertra...

Again, as has been stated here a few times, we don't know if this actually affects the 2001.5 Elantra GT. Remember that the 2001 GLS came out MANY months before the GT, possibly after the tests were ...

I'm 5'1" and I just love our 1997 Accent. I started out at the dealership looking for a 4-door auto Accent. Salesman, of course, worked us up to Elantra GLS because it got the "Consumer Re...

Given Hyundai's leaps in qualiy (first in 1997/1998 and then again in 2002/2003), I honestly think that an Elantra/Sonata hybrid (or even a whole line of hybrids spanning Elantra, Sonata, and XG) woul...

I lost it because of the frame. And I love the Elantra I bought. I just hope if what 3kids says,....that maybe it is just a certain time frame and that my car does not have the fuel pump go. I still...

Now, why would Hyudnai make the Accent less desirable? Simple, to make the people who like nicer cars buy th next level up, the Elantra, for "only" a few grand more....
