2006 Hyundai Elantra Sedan GLS 4dr Sedan (2.0L 4cyl 5M)


Review

I like this car very much so far. It took me for a ride in the first 8000 miles with a broken motor mount and air bag light, but it was all covered under warranty...no questions from the dealer. The 5spd trans is pretty responsive and much more fun to drive than the auto. I bought the car new feb 06 and have 44000 on the clock. No real problems since. I recommend this car as long as you keep up with the maintenance.


Best Features

gas mileage, low service costs, good sound system, very reliable (never left me stranded)


Worst Features

Seats could be a little more comfortable. I do a lot of driving so comfort is big in my eyes. Also, the passenger air bag sensor...it sometimes says its off when i have an adult in the passenger seat...not so good

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.
