2002 Hyundai Elantra GLS 4dr Sedan (2.0L 4cyl 4A)
I purchased my car with 7 miles on it, I now have 85k and for the first 4 years was happy with it. Lately, I had to replace the transmission, rotors & brakes, battery , lights, radiator, alternator, and a few other things. This with making all scheduled maintenance appointments. This car is only good when it's new, once you pass the four year mark, be ready to put some dough into it! I'm getting rid of mine, never to buy another one!
Spend the money to get decent parts made for this car. There are American made cars on the road from 10-20+ years ago. You will NOT see one of these around that long, they're just not built with quality parts.
