By autumn on
1997 Hyundai Elantra GLS 4dr Wagon
Car is comfortable and responsive, rides well, and looks good, but when it got to 70K it seemed to start falling apart piece by piece. Trans was replaced at 8,000 miles, then rebuilt at 83K. New battery: 68K. Starter replaced at 70K. Door handle replaced at 75K. Put on new tires after old ones wore out after 30,000 miles, new ignition cylinder at 85K. Speedometer cable and assembly now need replacing, too. Also, the trim surrounding the rear window is starting to fall off. I have been very diligent about maintaining this car as required, yet it still seems to need excessive repairs. I should have bought the manual trans version.
Favorite Features
Attractive looking, small size, power windows and locks, comfortable on long trips. It has a good stereo system, too. It is very roomy inside; can carry one bike inside, two on roof and 4 on a back rack. Will carry 5 passengers comfortably.
Suggested Improvements
Better transmission, trim and door handles which fit better and don't fall off. Higher quality components.
