My Chevy s10 pickup died without warning and I needed a car in a hurry and for little money. I wanted a new car but had used car money. I found the Elantra, researched it and made the purchase. I never had any problems in 70K+ miles; the only things I did were brakes (one set of pads) and tires. For the price you get a good ride, some luxury and very cheap to drive (fuel and maintenance).
Overall form and function. Great Synergy
I would like to lock the car from outside with the engine running. Why? So I could leave the air going for the dog while I run into the store. The feature that keeps you from locking keys in a car that is running it a plus for some but not me.
