I fell in love with it immediately. I live in a hilly area and gas mileage is 28 mpg combined. Elantra has plenty of power for highway driving. It also handles well in snow. It has 52K miles on it and has never needed a repair. This car is an excellent buy for the money!
The hatchback is great and holds a lot. With the rear seats down, you can easily carry large items as well.
The seats are not very comfortable on long trips. I wish you could adjust the height of the driver's seat because I am short.
