I bought this car when Hyundai just started giving their 100,000 mile warranty after having some bad reviews previously. My choice was between a Honda Civic, which I had before and the Hyundai Elantra wagon which was 2000 less in price with only a 3 year warranty. I took a chance and bought the Hyundai. (both choices were manual shift which I always drive). I made the right choice and have been very happy with this car. I do all short trips, no highway driving. I just had to replace the clutch at 45,000. My first big expense. It now drives like a new car. very peppy! All other repairs have been normal wear and tear. Oil changes only $10 at dealership. I'm happy!

My husband bought me my little red
wagon (same as in the photo actually!)
in Aug. of 1999. Parts that we have
replaced were all past the normal wear
mark and we have done NO major repairs
at approx. 36000 miles. Great
warranty, roadside assistance, great
price. Actually recommended the car to
my mom and she purchased a 2001 Elantra
sedan-what more can I say?? Next - I
want the Sonata!

ABought this car 7/99 new for less than
$12K. I should have bought the GLS
with the rear wiper, but am very
satisfied w/the car. Turned 90k miles
this week and now need new brake pads
(2nd pair and rotors were never cut).
Never did the timing belt yet - waiting
for 100K. Did have 1 occurence of the
check engine light - my brother filled
the car w/gas and "topped it off" so it
messed up the sensor. I would
definitely buy another Hyundai - can't
beat the warranty and the space for the

I've had this car for just over 2
years and no problems at all-- I love
it! I had intended to buy a used
Jetta, but this car stole my heart and
I still love to drive it. It's
definitely a lot of car for the price.
5 adults fit comfortably, with plenty
of room for cargo as well.

I like the body, the roominess, and the convenient style of the hatchback. It gets around and it is easy to maneuver. It gets good gas mileage and is easy to park because of the size. I think it is undervalued in the blue book.
My cars timing belt recently went. I was told because of the type of engine this car has that when the timing belt went extensive damage may have been done. Has anyone had this problem and if so was ?...
