I purchased my Elantra new in Nov of 05. I needed a new car after the electrical system in my 99 Jetta stopped working(very pricey repair) I have had absolutely 0 problems with this car. I have performed routine maintenance on the car, oil changes etc. New tires at 60,000 miles. I have been impressed with the peppy engine and love the gas mileage, I average 36 to 38mpg highway. I commute a lot to work and school. I do not like the fact the engine revs at higher rpms when shifting gears with the 5 speed manual transmission. Sheetmetal dents easily and paint has worn off the hubcaps. Interior has held up nicely, had to install new radio and upgraded the speakers. Wish I had the sunroof
gas mileage,peppy engine,quiet ride and interior, no rattles in interior after 70,000 miles.
improved sheetmetal,standard abs,trunk open button on key fob,hate to activate the alarm sounds like a bird chirping,trunk needs padding on the trunk lid feels tinny when shut,
