Interesting take s on this car.

Vehicle2003 Hyundai Elantra GLS 4dr Sedan (2.0L 4cyl 5M)
ReviewThis car was a gift to my wife at 173K miles. It stood in the African sun for a year before the radiator was done and the head skimmed. After 200 miles on the very first trip, it overheated. Towed it to a work-from-home mechanic. Problem was a T-insert pipe in the cooling system repaired with silicon! This was re-engineered and all else done properly. After running it in for 2000 miles to settle the head, the power at 7K rpm pops your eyes. This engine is amazing; you can do anything at any rpm. Never saw such before. In Johannesburg above 5800 ft ASL I get 42 mpg. Semi-city and synchronized lights. The soft body is an all-round crumple zone. Saved me a bomb! 2nd choice after the Mazda3.
Best FeaturesAmazing comfort and response. Kick off you shoe, use your big toe for better mileage. Get to know the rev counter.
Worst FeaturesTo make it a better machine? Nothing really.
