2004 Hyundai Elantra Sedan GT 4dr Sedan (2.0L 4cyl 4A)


Review

Bought an Silver Hyundai Elantra GT
2004 Model in third week of June 2004
in the state of NJ. Paid $13900 OTD (
incl taxes etc). Excellent car... lots
of power. Delivers avg mileage of 28.5
mpg. Was debating between Civic,
Corolla, sentra and Elantra. Civiv
would have been the first choice but
its expensive even with the most basic
features. Corolla has no power at all.
Seating is a bit awkard too. Little
more pricier than Elantra. Sentra has
bad crash test ratings and looks are a
turn off. Elantra has a good balance
of all.


Best Features

Side Airbags, Power, Large headlights, AC, Trip comp,


Worst Features

The steering wheel is too thin and smooth...sometimes the grip slips..however installing a cover took care of it.

Review

I have had this car for exactly 2 weeks
now and am pretty happy with it. I
have logged over 500 miles and the car
drove just as well fully loaded with my
family on last weekend's getaway as it
does everyday getting me to and from
work! The ride is solid and it handles
well, although I'm still getting used
to it! The only problem I have had is
with the stereo; it won't play CDs
without pausing intermittantly. Fuel
mileage varies greatly; the MPG meter
shows 35-40 on flat highway stretches
but dips into the low 20s during my 13
mile commute thru a rural canyon, but
it seems to be improving.
The buying experience at San Bernardino
Hyundai was Excellent!


Best Features

Creature Comforts! Leather seats, Pwr Wdos/Door Locks, 4 Whl disc brakes, 15" Wheels w/Michelin tires, Lit-up guages, all wit a 10yr/100,000mile powertrain warranty for about $13,500. You can't beat that! And my 14 yr old daughter loves the remote control for the stereo.


Worst Features

The factory Kenwood Stereo is too complicated to use. The CD player does not work correctly but they are ordering a new one for me. Hyundai needs to improve their paint finish. It's a little "orange-peely." And put in a horn that you can hear - it's wussy!

Review

This car has been a great change from
our GMC 14mpg mini-van. We took our
first road trip and pulled 32mpg
w/a.c. on. I'm 6'2" and have plenty of
leg/head room, my wife is 5'1" and can
pull up w/in easy reach. The trunk can
fit quite a bit. 48qt cooler,2
sleeping bags/pillows,6 man tent,2
chairs and some toys for the kids. The
seats are comfortable but not cushy.
Our longest sit has been 3hrs w/one
rest stop, a little stiff for that
long. For around town and short jaunts
it's great. I would recommend this car
to anyone looking for style,
affordability and a great warranty
package.


Best Features

Great gas mileage 24-26town/32-36hwy, lower #'s for running a.c. Peppy 2ltr and 5spd. The interior panels come out easily for audio upgrades and the like.


Worst Features

I would improve seat comfort, A.B.S. not an option but standard and put an extra coat of paint on, its a little thin. A cat has marked my hood and it doesnt look like it took to much to do.

Review

We had to rent a car when our son came
home on leave from the army. As luck
would have it, we got stuck with an
Elantra. What a find. We bought a
2004 in April. It drives as well as our
Buick Century (2001). I do agree
though with people claiming lack of
quality in the paint. We already have
scratches that have penatrated the
clear coat and the paint. Nothing like
that on the Buick.


















































Best Features

Comfort, gave mileage, fun of driving a smaller car with some pickup


Worst Features

The paint quality has to improve. I have the standard radio with the CD player. The sound quality needs improvement.

Review

I just got my Elantra and I can't say
enough great things about it. The car
is fun to drive and handles very well
on the Highway.The gas mileage is
excellent I traded in a gas guzziling
SUV for the Elantra best move I ever
made!!! Go for the Elantra you won't
be sorry.
