I researched new cars for over six
months and just couldn't help feeling
ripped off by all other makes after
taking a closer look at Hyundai. All
the features I wanted, for $3000 less
than a Civic EX! (And a 10-year
warranty to calm my fears about
What about resale value? What I'll get
less for it in a few years is in my
bank account now--collecting interest.
Love the responsive ride, ergonomics,
large load capacity, Euro styling.
Nothing rattles, automatic
transmission shifts as smooth as
Sporty suspension, 4 disc brakes, 2
liter engine, i.e. smooth and quiet
ride on highway, hatchback.
None I can think of so far. I have
loved every minute in the car!
What can I say about this car only
that Hyundai must be losing money on
this one. I think they are trying
hard for market share. Man...I love
this car....Black and fine. In a few
years I will put 16's on it and mabye
lower it about 1 1/2 inches. If this
thing had a turbo...I'm telling you
there would be no need to even test
drive anything within 10K of it's
Just returned from a 3000km round trip
from Calgary to Vancouver Island. A
lot of mountain driving - steep hills,
lots of twists. The car handled like a
sports car and was able to negotiate
all but the slowest and steepest roads
in 5th. Gas mileage 6.7litres/100km or
35mpg US. Drove at 60 - 75 mph where
road conditions allowed. Researched
this vehicle 1 year before buying.
It's exceeded my wildest dreams.
Without a doubt this is one of the most
enjoyable cars to drive that I have
ever owned. I did a lot of research on
a third car for my family and the
Elantra GT fit the bill perfectly. The
only problem as I see it, is I may not
want to give it to my daughter when she
goes to college.
Handling! This car hugs the road better
than any car I have ever owned. Great
