2006 Hyundai Elantra Sedan GLS 4dr Sedan (2.0L 4cyl 4A)


Review

I test drove Honda Civic and Nissan Sentra. And also looked at Toyota Corolla and 2 other domestic cars. Among those cars, Hyundai Elantra came up on top. It runs much quieter than other cars in its class and has more safety features for the prices. It also comes with a traction control system. I had a Honda Accord V6 EX before this one and I like Hyundai better than Accord. Although it lacks the horsepower like Honda Accord, for its lighter curb weight, it accelerates as fast as Accord. I hesitated to buy it in the beginning but I am so glad that I bought this quality car.


Best Features

Fuel economy, body assembly and mechanical precision(just look at how the trunk lid, doors, and hood that fit like luxury German and Japanese made cars)


Worst Features

Cloth seat material and comfort.

Review

After owning an Accent, I moved up to an Elantra in 2003, and purchased my 206 Elantra as a new vehicle a few months ago. Great value for the money! Reliable, comfortable; back seat passengers find it comfortable, too.


Best Features

Power side mirrors; adjustable seat height, map lights, keyless entry that turns on interior light as well as unlocking door(s), glasses holder.

Review

I got one of the last 06 Elantra's they had on the lot. I was looking for a deal, and boy did I get one. I;ve been looking at cars for the past few months, and I never found one that has the looks, features and pricing of the Elantra. It has great pick up, handles beautifully, and has a great warranty.


Best Features

Peppy engine, styling, features, my sunroof!


Worst Features

make ABS standard, add the horn to the alarm sound, remote trunk release, better cd player.
