Great car in it's class

Vehicle: 2005 Hyundai Elantra GLS SULEV 4dr Hatchback (2.0L 4cyl 4A)

Very enjoyable to drive. Quiet interior, comfortable seats, dash has a nice layout. Seems to be built very solid. The children say it's much more comfortable in the rear seat than our '95 Dodge Neon. Let me get overly critical. The brakes are soft but stop well. Handling is good but it has more body lean than the old Neon. Getting the SULEV in the automatic robs you of 6 horsepower (I live in CA, don't know if you can get the automatic here without it being SULEV). We would purchase it over all the competition again, highly recommended.
