2006 Elantra GLS still going strong at 214,576

2006 Hyundai Elantra GLS 4dr Sedan (2.0L 4cyl 4A)
I bought this car new in june of 2006. The only thing I have done to this car is change the oil every 5,000 miles. I have gone through 3 sets of tires and front brakes 3 times. at 120,000 I did a complete tune up and had the trans and radiator flushed. This is my 4th elantra and they heve never let me down. Just make sure you do the basic maintaince and it will last a long time. I do drive 90% of the time on the highway. With the cruise controll set at 68mph I am still getting 32mpg on the highway. If i set it at 78mph it drops to 28mpg.
Well I just hit 266,000 miles and still going strong. Last tank of gas I averaged 32.7 MPG. That is all highway miles back and forth to work. I drive 150 miles every day. I think its almost time for a new one! I just bought my wife a 2014 Santa Fe and she absolutely loves it.
