I bought my car used in 2002 and have not had any problems with it whatsoever except the front middle console lid breaking off since I bought it. I have 185,000 miles on my car and have never had anything go wrong with it (knock on wood). I would highly recommend this car to any commuter. Best car I've ever owned. If Hyundai made an AWD car instead of the larger SUVs I'd go out and buy one in a heartbeat!
Absolutely fun to drive. Very responsive handling. Stock stereo and speakers are actually very good.
Hyundai needs to make an AWD car like Subaru does. My Elantra does not handle that well on icy roads. My only complaint...
