2009 Hyundai Elantra GLS 4dr Sedan (2.0L 4cyl 5M)
The AC is inadequate. On 95 degree days, it is still warm in the car. This is a common problem for Hyundai. I had to have the windows tinted to help. I was in a head on accident and the air bags didn't go off. Another common problem for Hyundai. I'm waiting for a recall announcement. The idiot lights come on sporadically (ESC,ABS,TPMS). The longest one has stayed on was over an hour. I don't know if the ABS and ESC are working. Another common problem for Hyundai. The car has over 50K miles on it and we have not had any problems with it not running or starting.
We get about 25 miles to the gallon but do mostly city driving.
Improve the AC. Fix the air bag problem (unfortunately, there has to be numerous accidents with air bag failure before the government will force them to fix it). Fix the dash light problem.
