A no frills car
By Vinod on
2005 Hyundai Elantra GLS 4dr Sedan (2.0L 4cyl 4A)
Bought this amidst much warning from all friends and ignorant people who tend to be scared about buying anything other than a Toyota or a Honda from the used cars. Reason why I bought this was how Elantras offered the same features and higher power than a corolla or a civic at a much lower price. After having driven this for more than 16,000 miles, I am very pleased with this car. I have not had any bad experiences and the maintenance has only been preventive maintenance like transmission oil change, brake rotor change etc.
Nice overall package with small user friendly features like a small box beside the steering which can be used for coins for tolls. 2005 model elantras is actually quite a looker. And you should actually see how quickly it gets sold in the used car market.
Can't really think of anything much assuming you are not expecting a drag car out of this. This is more like a day to day office commute car + if you want to do something like a 100-150 miles drive on the weekend.
