I was not all that excited to be trading in my two seater sports car for the Elantra. However, I was growing out of the racer boy image and I needed something practical and good on gas. Now, I can't figure out why I had been driving anything else. This car is great. It excels at the things a "daily driver" should excel at and it still surprises me with thoughtful features designed into the vehicle that I had not known about. Can you believe it can tow over 3000lbs! I just found that out today and my jaw dropped. Awesome car.
Sprightly yet somehow miserly power plant, awesome cargo versitility with roof rack, fold down seats, and high tow capacity, security light on radio when face plate removed
The stock alarm volume is pitiful, as is the horn... If it came in awd I would forgive all the above.
