2007 Hyundai Elantra Sedan GLS 4dr Sedan w/XM Option (2.0L 4cyl 4A)


Review

My car is great. I had 2 door handles on the same side of car break in the first yr, but warranty cv'd it. Must have been a bad batch! This car sips gas, I get 30 mpg regularly. I've driven over 50,000 miles on it (20,000 on it when we bought it used in 2008) & enjoyed every minute of it. We used to rent cars to go visit family - no more. Ours is more comfy and has XM too! Paint does scratch faster, body has a few bumps (8 yo son=damage!) but it's really a great buy. The trunk is HUGE & that's why I purchased it. I carry lots of equipment for work. I can keep it in this car, AND go get a few groceries too! Really, it's an amazing trunk! Wish the carpet wasn't tan, but it cleans up pretty well.


Best Features

My favorite features are: Color (red), styling (cute-I still turn my head when I see another one on the road!), handling, sunroof, stereo sound, mp3 player, XM radio, GAS MILEAGE!


Worst Features

Better plastic on doors (mine scratched when I shut door on a bulky item), better paint, I really like this vehicle! Buy one if you have been thinking about it.

2007 Hyundai Elantra Sedan GLS 4dr Sedan (2.0L 4cyl 5M)


Review

I have had this car for almost three years now and have got 51,000 miles on it. I average around 34 highway and 26 city. The only problems so far were the air conditioning vents breaking and the dealership replaced those immediately. Hyundai has been really good standing behind their warranty. The only real problem that I have is the car uses oil. It uses about 3/4 quart every 5000 miles.


Best Features

I really like the blue lights. They are easy on the eyes. Has decent acceleration for the price. The ride is nice and is pretty quiet. The stereo is clear. Lots of leg room.


Worst Features

Need to upgrade the cheap cloth seats. The door paneling is also very cheap. I would also like to see a little better gas mileage. My Toyota Corolla blows it away in this regard.

2007 Hyundai Elantra Sedan GLS 4dr Sedan (2.0L 4cyl 4A)


Review

I've had 4 hyundai's. Two were Accents and 2 were Elantra's. All were exceptional in quality and performance. My newest is a 2007 Elantra GLS. The fuel economy, performance, and vehicle quality are the best you will get for the money! This car we'll be around for years to come. You just can't beat it.


Best Features

XM radio,cruise control, power windows and door locks and heated mirrors.


Worst Features

Tires could have been Michalin as standard as was on my 2002 Elantra.

2007 Hyundai Elantra Sedan SE 4dr Sedan (2.0L 4cyl 5M)


Review

Overall I love my Elantra. When I was looking to buy a new car last year, I singled in on the Elantra because of it's rave reviews and all the comparisons people were making between it and similar vehicles (Toyota Corolla and Honda Civic) in terms of dependability and other perks. My previous vehicle was a Toyota Corolla (so far I like the Elantra just as much). During the first year of ownership I've not had any mechanical problems (knock on wood) and have had to do minimal maintenance on it. It's exactly what I wanted in a vehicle.


Best Features

Love the standard features like automatic windows, locks, CD player, and cruise control. The blue interior lighting is very pleasant to look at as is the sporty exterior.


Worst Features

Gas mileage--as it does not get as good mpg as a Toyota or Honda & durability of the body/paint.

2007 Hyundai Elantra Sedan SE 4dr Sedan (2.0L 4cyl 4A)


Review

2007 Hyundai Elantra (fiery red color), 32k miles, “under warranty”, with sections of peeling clear coat and localized areas of fracturing paint, penetrating through the clear coat & top coat on the hood, roof, and trunk. Car was bought brand new in late 2007 (previous year’s model). Within one year, these issues began appearing, and have progressively gotten worse. Now, there are 50+ total spots throughout the car’s paint surface.


Best Features

Reliable, and fuel economic


Worst Features

Improve the quality paint, or paint application process
