My 2001 Hyundai Elantra has over 340,000 miles and still kicks backside going up and over the grapevine numerous times a year.
As a matter of fact it just made yet another trip from Oregon to California last month.
I just had the transmission replaced and a new clutch(the second one) last week.
If you maintain a car and fix it when the littlest problems comes up it will be good to you.
Having said that my daughter is using this car to commute 110 miles back and forth to school 5 days a week while I am driving a brand new 2013 Hyundai Elantra and so is my husband that's how impressed we have been with this car.
Didn't test drive or look at anything else.

I bought this car in 2007 when it had 120,000 miles on it.
It now has 190,000 miles, and I'm still driving it.
There are good and bad things I've encountered.
Good things- I love small cars, easy to drive, gets around very well in snow storms surprisingly, and it has never had engine or tranny issues.
Bad things- I've pumped tons of money in this car to keep it going.
From the radiator to the belts and everything in between.
And the paint is horrible. It's looks like crap and all peeled off on the hood, top, and trunk.
It looks horrible now.
It's still getting me places, and after 5 years, this is the longest I've had the same car, but I can't wait to get rid of it.

I used to own a 2001 Hyundai Elantra GLS. The car only had about 95,000 mile on it.I really liked this car. The car ran great. I got about 21 miles per gallon on it. I only had it for about 5 months untill I got in a car accident. I hit the front tire of a scooter doing about 30mph. I am ok and so was the guy on the scooter. There was damage to my front bumper, fender and my hood. My claims adjustor called me and said the car was a total loss. If you do buy this type of car do not get in accident with it because it was built on the cheap side.
Bigger inside and out, the redesigned 2001 Elantra boasts stylish sheet metal, a refined 140-horsepower engine and improved noise, vibration and harshness characteristics. Poised to tackle the best in the class, the Elantra comes well equipped for less than $13,000. Though the useful station wagon model has been stricken from the lineup, a five-door hatchback is set to debut next year.
