2007 Hyundai Elantra GLS 4dr Sedan (2.0L 4cyl 4A)
I bought this car new. It was perfect for me then, but now i have a 2 year old. With a car seat in the back and a stroller in the trunk, i have no room for anything. It drives me crazy that i can't even fit a full load of groceries in it, let alone a single item bigger than one seat. Mostly because of this, i am currently looking for an suv. If you don't have kids, it's a good little car, but if you do, i would highly recommend looking for something bigger. Also, the check engine light has been on practically since i got it. I took it to auto zone and they stuck that thing in it that tells you why it's on. I can't remember what they said it was exactly, but he said it was no big deal...
...and not to waste my money getting it fixed. So i didn't, but how am i to know if anything serious needs to be fixed if the light is always on b/c of something so stupid? Also there is a little tube that takes the wiper fluid out to the windshield, that broke not 6 months after i bought it, and they insisted that something i did broke it so my warranty wouldn't cover it. I didn't run over or hit anything so i know it wasn't me. Also, everytime i get on the highway and hit 70mph, the car starts shaking and vibrating really bad. The air conditioning stopped working this year and i haven't had a chance to take it in yet to find out why. But all i know is the last car i had was 12 years.....
....old and i never had any of these problems. It was a honda accord, and if it didn't get totaled i would still have it. I miss that car so much... so maybe i'd recommend looking at one of those first. But besides from these minor problems, i haven't had any major ones. It's not a bad car, just not right for me anymore. It got me from ohio to florida and back 3 times, once with a small u-haul behind it and it was fine. towed that thing like a champ. It's a good looking car too, inside and out.
