2005 Hyundai Elantra GLS 4dr Sedan (2.0L 4cyl 5M)

Review

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

Favorite Features

gas mileage,peppy engine,quiet ride and interior, no rattles in interior after 70,000 miles.

Suggested Improvements

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,
