I was hesitant to buy this car at the start, but quickly fell in love with it. Price, economy and warranty are just plain unbeatable. I was trying to purchase a 3-5 year old Camry or Honda and got into a brand new Elantra for the same money.
The backseat room is awesome - very roomy for a smaller car. I do handyman work and the hatchback has beena lifesaver. I can fit 8 foot dimension lumber completly inside the car and close the hatch. I love the keyless entry to the hatch - very convenient.
The windshield wipers leave the "crossover" smudge in the driver's view. It should be in the middle or reversed to the passenger side for safety. Sun visor needs extensions. Rubber coating on trim rips off in a "wand type" carwash. One spot on mine looks like a squirrel chewed it!!
