My Elantra is a 5spd model. Excellent power and fuel economy. Very good build quality and very comfortable for the class. This car feels like it will run forever. The only negatives are the ease in which you can dent the body panels and the engine turns a bit to many rpm's at highway speeds for my taste. The resale value is poor, which makes it an excellent used car value. I bought mine in Dec. of 08 with 23,000 miles on it for $7.5k Would highly recommend the Elantra
Good power, good room, good 5 speed linkage, good fuel econ. (27 mpg around town and 33-34 on the highway)
make the body panels a bit more durable, paint quality isn't great... the steel wheels rust easily
