I have a 2007 Hyundai Elantra. I was fixing my sun visor and shorted the wires which blew my acces fuse. I changed that fuse, but since then My dash lights, electric windows, door locks, trunk release, tail lights are all not working. I have checked all the fuses but they are fine.
This happened to me yesterday. I have a 2007 Hyundai Elantra. As I was merging onto the highway I stepped on the gas peddle and then my car just took off on its own I felt the engine speeding up. I tried to step on the brake but it wouldn't go down it was like the brake was stuck and I had absolutely no control over stopping my car and it ... Read More
Funny isn't it, the "city" numbers can't be achieved in a Hyundai or Kia product, but can be in a Ford, Chevy, or Honda. Why do you say that? How many Hyundai/Kia products have you owned? How much behind-the-wheel time do you have in the current-gen Elantra? I've owned 3 Hyundais and have no problem meeting or exceeding the EPA city and highway ratings under normal conditions. My DW, OTOH, struggles ... Read More
2013 Elantra GLS, auto. After 5K miles and reading allot of posts about this car's MPG I think something is clear: your city mpg will vary between 22 to 24, while your highway will be around 34 to 35 (mile marker to mile marker, once at speed on a flat road) Combined = 27. Hyundai's claimed MPG estimate 15% overstated in city driving and 10% overstated on the highway measured by ... Read More
Is not the definition of the "city" rating "stop & go traffic" (i.e., traffic lights and stop signs)? The City rating is 29 mpg and I get only 22 mpg. My previous car was a 2007 Nissan Sentra 2.0S. It was rated at 25 to 33 mpg. With the same driving patterns as with 2011 Hyundai Elantra GLS, at 11,000 miles, I was averaging 25 mpg. I guess that means that ... Read More
hi backy, thanks for your reply. I did not realize that the Elantra GLS has auto-off headlights. Where I can find this kind of info on Hyundai's website? Where can I read more about how leaving the headlamp switch "on" might drain the battery? I drive my car several times a week, if that matters. Do you think there's any chance the 2013 Prius might have auto on-off headlamps in the ... Read More
Most people realize if they drive in extreme conditions. I am beginning to doubt that, based on the posts I've seen in the "fuel economy" discussions. Perhaps many people don't realize how extreme (compared to the EPA test regimen) their driving conditions are because: 1) they are "normal" for them, and 2) they don't know the details of how the EPA does its tests. So they drive a car that, let's ... Read More
I checked out the latest compact hatches at my local auto show today. It's helpful to be able to compare them side-by-side-by-side within a few minutes of each other. The big disappointment today was that Hyundai didn't have the new Elantra GT at the show. But Toyota had the new Prius C available for sitting in. I was not impressed. The interior screamed "cheap", especially the plastics, the rear seat was ... Read More
I purposely joined this forum for the sake of airing my frustrations and findings about the 2012 Elantra. Last August I was involved in an accident that totalled my 2007 Hyundai Elantra. Since I have been a faithful buyer of Hyundai for over 15 years and most of the vehicles I have purchased have been Elantras, I decided to stick with it and purchase the 2012. One of the biggest (and ... Read More
I have enjoyed reading your reviews! I bought a brand new 2007 Hyundai Elantra back in Aug. 2007, and before that I had a 2002 Hyundai Elantra that I had bought used. I am really impressed with Hyundai (more importantly their warranty!). My husband and I have been looking into getting another Hyundai (I currently have a Toyota Highlander. I have no need for an SUV of that size anymore), and ... Read More
The EPA Highway test cycle that gives that 40 mpg number has a 60 mph top speed and an average overall speed for the test of about 48.3 mph. Incorrect. Read the test criteria: "Beginning with 2008 models, three additional tests will be used to adjust the city and highway estimates to account for higher speeds, air conditioning use, and colder temperatures." It was 2007 and earlier EPA estimates (which were ... Read More
Has anyone taken a 150 plus highway trip using mainly cruise control within 60-70mph on an Elantra and calculating the mpg? I expect 40mpg with this test (because that is what the ad says) but curious how much higher it goes. If it doesn't break 40mpg, Hyundai definitely should re-test the Elantras or take a page from Honda. Following my driving criteria above, my old 2007 Honda Fit Sport was rated ... Read More
In my experience, the EPA ratings (even the old ratings) are achievable easily on ANY car as long as the conditions are not extreme and one drives with a bent towards fuel economy. But conditions are often not ideal (e.g. how many people drive short distances, in traffic, lots of stops or slow-moving highway traffic). I am lucky in that I don't have to drive in heavy traffic much, and also ... Read More
December 26, 2007 I purchased a used 2005 Hyundai Elantra GTS with 23,000 miles on it. In September of 2008 I took my car in to have the 30,000 mile service done. I was told that my rear brakes were completely worn and needed to be replaced. My front brakes were fine. I started to hear squealing in my front brakes in September 2009 so I took the car to a ...

It's not that I require a GDI engine, I would just like to have the latest technology since that seems to be the way the auto mfg's are going. I would think you would get better mpg's with DI vs. multiport injection any day or the car mfg's would not be going in that direction. The 1.6L is putting out 138 hp vs. 148 hp with the 1.8L. I realize they ... Read More
Hyundai is releasing a "Sonata wagon" called the I40 in Europe. At this time I don't think there are plans to bring the I40 here. I would encourage everyone looking for an "upgraded" Touring to contact Hyundai & tell them to bring the I40 to the US. There are plenty of pictures out on the web of the I40. I have owned two Elantra hatchbacks (a 2001 with auto and 2007 ... Read More
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hyundai_Kia_Automotive_Group Hyundai is the parent company and as such is a bit like how Infiniti is to NIssan - just with budget cars. Years ago, Kia was its own company and was far ahead of Hyundai in quality. Hyundai bought them out, essentially flipped the brands around and used Kia's technology to help revitalize their vehicles. Now they are comparable to the other budget makes like Nissan and Mazda. But in ... Read More
Does your car have less than 60k miles on it? If so, I'd push to have this covered under the bumper-to-bumper warranty. It's clear the original parts have a design defect, which is "fixed" via an aftermarket part recommended by a Hyundai dealer. So I think you have a case. Doesn't hurt to try. You can take it "up the chain" if the dealer balks.
If you bought the tire warranty from Discount Tire, I'd definitely go back to them and complain, and see what they can do for you... especially if you had the tires inspected there at regular intervals. Are you sure it's "aftermarket parts", or that the dealer doesn't have the right equipment to do the alignment? That was what my dealer told me back in 2006: "We don't have the right equipment." ... Read More
Thanks for taking the time to reply to my post….it’s always nice to fine someone that cares what a “stranger” is going through. I purchased these tires a year ago from Discount Tire. I had the tires rotated 2 months ago. What I don’t understand is why they did not catch this problem and inform me what was going on. You would think that they would have noticed that the tires ... Read More
I just returned from getting my car serviced at the Hyundai dealership. It was supposed to be just a service A which is a simple oil change. The dealership is now claiming that my 2007 Elantra is out of alignment and that it could not be adjusted unless aftermarket parts were used. Apparently, Hyundai, in their infinite wisdom, designed this car so that it could not be aligned properly. So, now ... Read More
Take the warranty into consideration to help you make your decision. Piece of mind down the road when your car loses that new car smell. I've purchased three new Hyundai Elantras in the past 10 years, 2003, 2007 for my kids and a 2011 for me...no regrets. Good Luck.
Funny timing on your question - we drove ours home last night!!! I ended up with a silver GLS from Hyundai of Jackson. This is the second Hyundai I have bought from here, and it was another good experience. I worked with Andrew Ballnik (who also took care of me with my 2007 Santa Fe when I bought it, and has helped me with other items in the meantime). Everywhere else ... Read More
What kind of desserts? Jello? Pudding? Creme pie maybe? (wink) Re transmission of bumps... did you check tire pressures before the cross-country trip? A common delivery problem is the dealer not adjusting the tire pressures to spec before delivery. They are over-inflated on the truck. Lack of key locks on trunks and glove boxes is becoming pretty common these days, unfortunately. But I've never seen a car in this class with ... Read More
I've owed 6 Hyundai's since 1999. My first was an Elantra, which I liked so much that I bought a second Elantra 6 months later. Over 10 years, I've purchased 4 Elantras, 1 Sonata, and 1 XG350L. I service my cars regularly and the older ones were still running after 240,000 miles, when I gave them to various family members. The only one that gave me a problem was my 2007 ... Read More
Internet photo. First Elantra I owned was a 2001--two generations ahead of the one in the photo. The sleek look is here to stay, for Hyundai and other automakers (see for example 2006-10 Civic and 2007-10 Sentra) due to fuel economy regs. There's windshield sunshields, deep window tinting for sides and back, and (my favorite trick) cracking the moonroof to help keep the interior cool with all that glass. In my ... Read More
Has anyone been having trouble with a 2007-2009 Hyundai Elantra rolling in park or have had a transmission replaced and still having the same problem please post if you have.
Just wondering if using an oil not mentioned in my owner's manual has done any damage to my car. I've gone a couple hundred miles since the car was filled with 5/20 (2.0L engine, which I believe uses the shims instead of hydraulic lifters). For the life of the car thus far I've primarily used 10-30 or 10-40, and most oil changes were done at the dealer so that I could ... Read More
My 2007 Hyundai Elantra has lost power three times in the past 2 weeks as I have been breaking to come to a stop at a red light. Each time it has happened, the engine has been relatively cool. It has happened within a few blocks of work after the car has been parked all day. After it rolls to a stop, all the dashboard lights flash on and then off. ... Read More
Hi , I would like to know how to take the small front grill away from the full front grill/bumper as I want to get to the frame that holds the radiator so I can put some Brackets on to that frame which will come through the small grill ,can you or anybody else help me,TINLEGS. PS;the car is a 2006/2007 HYUNDAI ELANTRA.
I have three Elantras-- 05, 06, and 08, all bought new. I've learned a few lessons, some the hard way, about the warranty and maintenance. Here is my take: Regular fluid and filter changes at or about the recommended mileage intervals will virtually guarantee you go past 100K miles. This is true with all cars today as engine tolerance and design is tighter now than ever before. 5K oil changes are ... Read More
Hi, my Elantra is at just past 30k right now. Just checked the Owner's Manual and realized how it mentions the first of (DATE or MILEAGE). Meaning 30k maintenance should be done at 30k or 24 months whichever is earlier. Thing is, the car is now 2.5 years old. Should I be concerned regarding the warranty? I HAVE of course kept on top of the oil changes and such. Mind you, ... Read More
My 2007 Hyundai Elantra speedometer reads 10% higher than the actual speed. I have tested this using a stationary radar speed display and by using friends in other vehicles. Do you know the fix?
I can't be sure, but when we were looking for a Hyundai (new), we saw the ads for dirt cheap Elantras, etc., then when we got to the showroom they explained those were "blue" specials, in other words, no air conditioning, no heater, no power nothing. It was ridiculous. Plus, I am good at negotiating. I learned over the years. I used to sell pianos, and I know from experience that ... Read More
Shop around, knowledge is power. Dealers are dealing for market share and a person with a ready checkbook is always in charge. Don't be mislead by "buy owner" asking price or even "book" price. Here is a holiday sale emailed to me from my dealer. It lists a new 2009 for $10,199. Most probably a stick but its not 3 1/2 years old. 2009 Hyundai Elantra GLS Internet Price Start from ... Read More
Find another dealer. I've driven many 2007-9 Elantras (same design as the 2010) and there's been no loud knocking noise when turning the wheel or going over a speed bump. You might also call Hyundai Customer Service and report this run-around you are getting from the dealer.
A 2007 Elantra is at most a little over 3 years old, not 4. And the SE has ESC, so I'm not sure why you brought up ESC except to point out that it makes a 2007 SE even more valuable. As for warranty, yes, when you by a used car you give up some things such as the full factory warranty. But if this car is at a Hyundai dealer, ... Read More
NHTSA mandates that 95% of vehicles must have ESC by 2011 and all by 2012. Since this will be on every Accent (etc) on up, it will have an effect on the resale value of any non ESC car, similar to what non airbag cars had seen. It is also estimated to reduce fatalities by as much as 56%. Pretty strong argument to make sure the car you purchase now and ... Read More
I can only guess the backorder is because there aren't many 2007 Elantras in the US with a stick shift, so supply of complete manual transmissions is low. Also, sticks are pretty reliable, so HMA probably doesn't keep many in stock. If I were you, I would press (politely) for a loaner car while you are waiting for the transmission. Mention your hardship (son needs to return to college) that was ... Read More
I had good luck buying a 2007 Rabbit last April, VW Certified, about 4 years of VW warranty left on it, was only $11k--but that was near the bottom of the used car market, might be a little more today for a 2008. Loved the way it drove, very comfortable seats, 4 door has good utility if not as roomy as the Touring. I traded it last month only because my ... Read More
I share your concern. In fact, there would probably be an 2008 Elantra sedan in my garage right now were it not for its showing on the IIHS side impact test, since I like the car otherwise (especially the SE trim). I think that is a very sorry showing for a car redesigned for the 2007 MY. Consider that almost all other small cars have better scores. Even some much smaller ... Read More
I just found this: The brake switch operates a few things. It turns the brake lights on; it disengages the cruise control; it also controls the shift lock, traction control and ABS. There is an open recall for the brake switch (see here and here) and that would cause your problem. If the dealer replaced the brake switch, your problem should be solved. The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) and ... Read More
We are experiencing a problem with the car starting. It is not electrical. It seems to happen mostly when the feul is low. Car also heistates when you punch the gas on the highway. We have brought it to our local Hyundai dealer and they can not test it because there is a special adapter that needs to be attached to the feul pressure test kit made especially for this car. ...

Hi everyone - well the problem is sometimes it starts and sometimes it does'nt. We have only one dealer here in Halifax, so I am at their mercy. First I called them to get it in as my wife needs it for work, and was told it would be two weeks before they could see it, unless I broke down on the road and had a tow truck bring it in, ...

I have a 2007 Hyundai Elantra with 34,000 miles that needs new transmission. It stared with the car shuttering between 35-40 mph then sometimes it would be like it missed a gear around 35-40mph. Took it to the dealer they said transmission fluid need changed. Had it done. Put 400miles on it. went back to the dealer still doing same thing. Now they say it needs a new transmission. It will ...

I saw my first Touring (silver) at our local Raleigh, NC Hyundai dealer. Please note that I had two Elantra hatchbacks and now own a 2007 Sonota. Here's my take: 1) It's a very attractive car, especially for essentially a small station wagon. 2) It looked a lot bigger than I thought. I don't have my Elantra HB but it looked a lot bigger than I my HB. I wish Hyundai ... Read More
It seems very odd that Hyundai would change its suppliers for the 2005 MY Elantra, then apparently change them again for the 2006 MY (the scores improved for 2006). Stats are useful, but can be misleading. We know, for example, that CR's reliability categories are based on numerical data. They don't publish their cutoffs for each category, but there must be cutooffs. So let's say for example the upper-end cutoff for ... Read More
To be fair, numbers don't lie. Take the Corolla versus the Elantra (about equivalent class of vehicles). There is no doubt that both initial quality ratings as well as long term reliability show Corolla to be a clear winner. Take the 2004 year Elantra I'm looking to buy - here are the sorry numbers on that car: http://www.edmunds.com/used/2004/hyundai/elantra/100342729/ratings_jdpower.html And here are the numbers on the 2004 Corolla: http://www.edmunds.com/used/2004/toyota/corolla/100282812/ratings_jdpower.html Now, if what ...

What is different in the design of the parking brake of the 2001-2006 Elantra (which I have) and the 2007+ Elantra (which is one of the subjects of your warning)? I am not sure where to find an "online manual" with details on inspecting, adjusting, and repairing the parking brake on my Elantra. If you happen to know such a link, could you please post it? I don't think that level ... Read More
Can you please provide more details? For example, your warning is for all Hyundais made after 2006 with a pull lever parking brake. Why is it specific to 2007 and later Hyundais? Was there a general design change Hyundai made on parking brakes on all of its cars, and specifically the Elantra, starting with the 2007 MY? I own a 2004 Elantra GT with a pull lever parking brake. Would this ... Read More
It appears that the IIHS did not test the Elantra for side impact until the 2009 MY (which is really odd in itself, since the car was redesigned 2 years ago). But the frontal and rear (really a test of the driver's seat, not the car) tests were done on the 2007 Elantra. Since there hasn't been any change to the structure or SRS of the Elantra since the 2007 MY, ... Read More
The side impact results for the driver on the Elantra are indeed very disappointing, and puzzling, given this was a new design for MY 2007 and has both side and curtain airbags. Also, Hyundai must have done its own tests similar to the IIHS tests so it knew how poorly the driver would fare in side impacts, yet in the 2+ years the car has been on the market Hyundai has ... Read More
I'm a new member ... what a great forum! My issue is that the passenger side headlights lights, both hi and lo beam (but not the running lights) have stopped working on my '02 Elantra - the drivers side works fine. I reviewed the thread from Nov. 2007 (#2892 +/-) and have checked all fuses that seemed appropriate in both the engine compartment fuse block and the interior one under the ... Read More
I work for a Japanese car dealership here in California as an Auto Tech. When a vehicle is not fixed for the 3rd time, the Service Manager gets involved and the car manufacturer techline/hotline gets involved because of the lemon law. The service manager, reminds the tech about the lemon law then the work order is marked with a note to see him and discuss with him how the problem was ... Read More
I have contacted Hyundai customer service directly-twice. The first time I felt they were somewhat helpful since the dealer actually did keep the car for several days and when I got it back I was able to drive it for 7 months with no problems. When I called them the last time the light came on, I did not feel they were helpful at all. They simply told me to take ... Read More

IMHO, I would ask for a replacement vehicle if they could not fix the problem. I am no lawyer but this is clearly a lemon car since problems started only 4 months after you purchase the vehicle and until now this problem is not fixed. You must contact Hyundai customer service directly not the dealer. Ask Hyundai to keep the car until it is fixed and give you a free loaner ... Read More
Has anyone else had any problem with the check engine light on a 2007 Elantra? I bought mine in June 2007. In late September or early October 2007 the check engine light came on for no apparent reason. The car was running and driving fine. I called the dealer and of course they told me to make sure the gas cap was tight. I hadn't filled up for about 3 days ... Read More
All of these problems should be covered under the 5 year bumper to bumper warranty. Fortunately, you recently took the car in for service so there should be no question about service history.
I am guessing you may have three problems now from originally two problems. 1st problem could be a leaking brake master cylinder. Dangerous if you loose all the brake fluid in the car. Check the brake fluid reservoir. Add brake fluid if it is low. 2nd problem could be the brake light switch. The brake switch also locks/unlocks the shifter lever solenoid. You will not be able to move the shifter ... Read More
Okay, here's the situation, As we drove to the store and found parking, I wne to shift the car from Drive to Park, and found that the shift control would not go to Park. I steped on the brake as I always do, and it still would go to Park, It took A lot of force to force the car into park. Finally parked and car off, I restarted the car ... Read More
Hello all. Heres a list of some early production 07 Elantra issues i have had. Build date October 2006. Purchased Feb 2007. Speedometer error off by 5 miles per hour, drivers side seat track off track from factory, alignment off from factory, steering wheel off center, glove box rattle, passenger side dash vent creaking, all were fixed by Hyundai under factory warranty. Mystery rattle has developed behind glovebox so the quest ... Read More
After 3 months of owning a 2008 Elantra with automatic transmission, I began to notice a strange metallic clicking sound only when initially accelerating after car was put into drive. Subsequent accelerations from a stop were normal. this would sometimes happen when car was put into reverse under same circumstances. I went to dealer and technician road tested car and told me the axle on driver's side had too much "play" ... Read More
If alignment specs is way off, ask the local shop (that diagnosed the problem) for a printout of the alignment. Bring that printout to Hyundai and have them align the car or bring the work order/receipt from the diagnosing shop and bring it to Hyundai. I believe it is still under warranty unless it indicates a previous accident which was not disclosed by the seller of the vehicle. If it is ... Read More
Battery is covered under warranty. And Hyundai does not make the battery. The OEM battery on my '05 dropped a cell at 18Kmiles and the dealer replaced it with an Interstate battery that had a Hyundai sticker applied. And apologized for the inconvenience. And and had me in and out in less than 30 minutes. What more could I ask for? Sometimes a battery just croaks. Sort of like a hamster. ... Read More
One alternative to consider for a safe car for a daughter is a used 3-Series. No, I am not kidding. Consider that there are well-maintained E46 3-Series sedans and coupes out there that have decent power but not too much--actually no more than some of today's 4-cylinder sedans. They can be found pretty readily with all the important safety features, including 6 (or even 8) airbags, 4-wheel discs with ABS and ... Read More
August 2007. If I remember correctly that is when the "news" of the Elantra Touring for North America started to break and it is now October 2008 and Hyundai has yet to make the car available.
"Total price paid 12995 + 995 for additional bumper to bumper coverage, 4.79 interest for 60 months. Additional stuff included mud guards, carpeted mats. and cargo net." I don't know what you mean by additional bumper to bumper coverage. But it sounds good to me. Hubby and I paid $14,000 plus tax, plus Motor Vehicle fees and document processing. Hubby got the same interest rate you did, mine was 2 points ... Read More
First, consider that any stats on long-term reliability on the Elantra are from a different generation of car. Going back to the Gen 3, 2001-6, the reliability is actually quite good. (I've owned two from that generation and had very positive experiences.) So you have to go back to the Gen 2, designed in the early 1990s before Hyundai's big push on quality, to get a car that has not proven ... Read More
Looking to purchase a used 2007 Elantra -previous rental car. I see that the 10 yr powertrain is non-transferrable. Instead, those parts will be covered under the 5 yr bumper to bumper. BUT..will I find that those part are excluded due to being a prior rental? See the wording from the Hyundai official site: econd and/or subsequent owners have powertrain components coverage under the 5 year / 60,000 mile New Vehicle ... Read More
My wife figured this out, the procedure listed is correct.but we found that we need to change it more often than required.Takes about 5 minutes to do.They could make it easier to disassemble, that is for sure.
I don't seem to remember saying I bought my Elantra because MY FRIENDS thought it was cool. I stated my husband knew some friends of his with Sonatas and Elantras and they had no major problems. As for saying an 11 yr old vehicle needs to be traded in....well that 11 year old vehicle had nothing wrong with it except the frame. And after the crappy way the Dealer treated me ... Read More
I find your response lacking ownership experience. I also find that your response is just pure based on research and reading publications that are just a small fraction of the number of elantras sold. I want you to know that I have a 2007 elantra and have 10300 miles on my elantra and it has go through a summer heat that you probably would not comprehend, but yet my elantra never ... Read More
One bit of data is that Consumer Reports rates the 2008 Elantra "Excellent" (its top score) in predicted reliability based on its surveys, from the 2007-8 model years. Also, the reliability history of the previous-generation Elantra was pretty good also. So there is actually considerable operating history on the Elantra and Hyundais in general. I think the reason that you can still get an Elantra for considerably less than a comparably-equipped ... Read More
US government opens investigation into '07-08 Hyundai Elantra after reports of engine stalling The Associated Press Monday, July 21, 2008 WASHINGTON: The government is investigating 2007-2008 model year Hyundai Elantra compact cars after receiving reports of engine stalling, officials said Monday. The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration said in a posting on its Web site that its preliminary investigation involves about 167,000 Elantras. NHTSA said it has received four reports of ...

The PZEV was available in California in 2007. I read that .I saw that before I read Wikapedia. I am in NY and the dealer said it came out in NY as a 2008. I don't know about the other states, but Ca and NY have some sort of special section in the warranty books about the length of time their warrant is for emissions.
PZEV was available for the 2007 model year on the Elantra, e.g. see: http://www.autofieldguide.com/articles/120605.html Also, I confirmed that SULEV (PZEV-style tailpipe emissions) was available on the 2006 Elantra. (You might have seen that when you looked at Wikipedia.) I am pretty sure that the Sonata got PZEV only for 2009,
I looked this up and you are correct. I looked it up in Wikipedia. But I also saw where 2008 is when they first used the PZEV engine in the Elantra automatic only. It was used in the Sonata I believe earlier. But then I also saw when I looked up Sonata that this May there was a recall put out on the 2007 Sonatas about the seat with the air ... Read More
Wow! Just thank your stars that nothing happened to your husband! I again urge ALL of you who have had fuel pumps fail in their new Elantras to report to NHTSA. You owe it to your friends here & everywhere who have bought an Elantra so that something like this doesn't happen to them. PLEASE! Whether Hyundai knows about it or whether they are designing a solution or just stonewalling is ... Read More
I bought a Cabin Air Filter for my 2007 Elantra at the dealership (cost: about $22.00) and then asked a mechanic at the dealership to show me how to install it. My dealership wanted $89.95 for this 2-minute job. The filer is behind the glove box. To drop the glove box, open it and squeeze both sides hard. The box will drop. Then go to the right-hand side of the box ... Read More
Where can I buy 2007 Hyundai Elantra GLS Cabin Air Filter? Thanks
Hi..Where did you buy the 2007 Hyundai Elantra Cabin Air Filter? I can't find it. My local dealership want $93.00 to change it. Thanks.
Sorry to hear about your troubles with your car. Whether it is new or old, such sudden shutdowns are extremely dangerous & I certainly see why you would be very upset. I would be extremely upset if it happened to me. Reading around this forum, I see that many 2008 Elantra owners seem to be facing a fuel pump failure in their new cars. I urge you & all other owners ... Read More
I also had a very good experience buying a 2007 Elantra from Fairfax Hyundai in late July 2007. My OTD price was $14000. I am in the market to purchase another vehicle and will try Fairfax Hyundai again. How did you start the sales process over the phone ? I had done my previous purchase by email.
July 7 (Bloomberg) -- Hyundai Motor Co., South Korea's largest automaker, raised prices for its Elantra and Accent small cars exported to the U.S. to cover the rising cost of steel and other materials. Hyundai boosted basic prices for the Elantra by $300 and for the Accent by $200 as of July 1, Hyundai's Seoul-based spokesman Jake Jang said in a phone interview today. The starting retail price for the Accent ... Read More
I'm interested also. I was just in to my local dealership and they want $100.00 to change it. If I can do myself...Great!!!!!!!! :)
Hey Steve, if it is the filter I am thinking of, it is also called the climate control filter, and is located behind your glovebox. First, open your glovebox, on the right outside part of the box there is a support rod that needs to be disconnected. It is just a small snap holding it on. Next, on the inside of the glovebox you will see two rectangular stoppers that need ... Read More
I was wondering if anyone knew how to change the cabin air filter. I don't know where my manual is so I'm a little lost. I just got a filter from my buddy who works in the after market trade and he didn't know how to do it either, so I'm asking if anyone knows how to do it drop me a line and help me save a few bucks. Thanks, ... Read More
Have you driven the Elantra SE, 2007+? I would not say it has a "squishy" ride at all, although it is more isolated and softer than cars like the Mazda3. But I think the SE has a very practical blend of safe, secure handling and ride comfort. Not to everyone's tastes of course. The Focus used to have what was generally consdered (and I agreed) one of the best if not ... Read More
Any word whether the re-designed Elantra available this year in China only will make it into other markets next year? Looks a lot more "confident and expressive"(Hyundai PR's words regarding the 07 design) than the 2007...more aggressive, too. This is actually made in China, not Korea, and has many luxury features not available on current models like wood trim and auto climate control. I probably wouldn't want a car made in ... Read More
I recently bought an used late model 2007 Hyundai Elantra car on May 18, 2008. The car only had 24,677 miles when I bought it. My speedometer is off by 6mph. I had the cruise control set for 54mph (I was in a 55mph speed zone) and was actually traveling at 48mph. I only found out about this because a cop pulled me over for going too slow. Luckily I didn't ... Read More
Not sure what I am doing wrong. I have a 2007 Hyundai Elantra SE - got it in September. Just over 2600 miles on it. Majority of which were back and forth from NJ to Staten Island. Any helpful suggestions?
We bought our Elantra GLS last June of 2007 and we like the car. But not yet a year old and the radio/cd/xm are dead. Possibly the fuse has blown. Couple of our friends told us before we looked into the Hyundai's that they have a consistent problem with fuses. I tried to change the fuse but found it difficult to remove the fuse w/my fat little fingers. Any suggestion on ... Read More
I have been shopping around for used Elantras (2007s). I'm in the Chicago area and have been very particular in getting a used 07 for 13K OTD. I have had no success to my surprise considering there is a $1500 rebate on new ones. Anyways, today I called a local dealer who said they could get me a brand new 08 Elantra for just under 14K with the cheaper popular option ... Read More
Like you, I bought the car described in the next sentence for my teenager, who also loves it (naturally). IMHO, I do think the dealer got the better of the deal -- the key to these deals is to use the Internet to find the same or a very similar car at two or three dealers within 50 miles or so, and then be completely willing to walk out when Dealer ...

The 2007 Elantra I purchased was a Limited, loaded, including leather. MSRP on that was ~ 20,000. I got it for 14,825 plus T/T, so I think I'm okay with the depreciation curve, though, again, I don't care about that curve since I'm holding the car minimum of 6 years.
So, hello everyone =) I just got my 2007 ( 11k miles ) Elantra about 3 weeks ago. Right on the first days we heard a weird noise on the back passanger side tire when braking slowly. Took to Hyundai, got fixed... After a week or so I thought I heard a minor noise onje day, but it went away... Nooow, at my work, there's a driveway a bit inclined, and ... Read More
