The 2004 Elantra is definitely something i will be keeping around for awhile. Some people might say that Hyundai does not make reliable cars, I don't know about Hyundai's past but i assure you that this sedan is nothing but reliable. I had purchased the car with only 18,000 miles on it and now it has over 50,000 in just one year. I still have not run into a single mechanical problem nor any interior problem. I had to replace the brakes but those are wearing parts. I drive both highway and city getting a 28mpg. It is most definitely not at its best when in snow though, it is actually not a snow friendly car at all. Ill just take it easy in snow and keep driving fun, good on gas, reliable car
REALIABLITY. Small car but comfortable fits 5 people. Has a great turning radius. Has very good Handling. A pretty good mpg. The powerful economy engine, which makes it fun to drive. The seats are very comfortable. The stylish look. The stock speakers aren't Bose, but are very good.
