I've had a 2004 Elantra GT hatchback for two months. Great car - fast, safe, reliable, comfortable. However, the 5 spd. is extremely clunky; it feels more like a truck transmission than a car transmission. Moreover, the fog lights come on only when the headlights are on, which rather defeats the purpose of fog lights. Otherwise, terrific car.
Generally good function and reliability.
1) A 5 spd., eighty years after being invented, should be quick, short, and easy to use. Hyundai should fix theirs. 2) Fog lights should operate independently of headlights.
