1998 Hyundai Elantra GLS 4dr Sedan
I bought this vehicle new andI was
weary of Hyundai's reputation but
decided to take my chances after a
surprising test drive. This was also
before they offered the great
warranty. I have never regretted my
decision. My Elantra now has 135,000
miles on it w/o any problems at all!
The only items I have had to replace in
over 4 years are considered normal
maintanence such as wiper blades,
tires, brakes, and a battery. The car
has never failed to start, and has
driven flawlessly in a number of
extreme conditions as I live in the
northeast. I just passed the strict
Massachusetts emissions test w/o
a problem at all.
The interior of the car is extremely
well designed. The exterior is also
still quite fresh after over 4 yrs.
Reliability is top-notch; never had any
issues. It is very fun to drive, with
lots of power. Still has ice cold A/C.
the body dings a bit too easily. I
also wish it had a bit more headroom as
I am 6'1" and feel a little too close
to the roof sometimes.
