The only reason I've gotten this vehicle is because my wife trashed our 2007 Toyota Camry SE-V6.
Can't afford the same level of car so we settled on Hyundai Elantra, 09, brand new at the time.
Now, fast forward 70K miles and here are my reviews:
The transmission starts to rattle a bit now as shifting up can be adventurous at times.
Keep in mind I take care of my religiously so it's not a matter of not maintaining it.
Electrical problems starting to surface.
TPMS will show up for no reason.
Overall drive is stoic but comfy.
Performance is ok (typically for a small sedan, don't expect much.)
You get what you pay for, don't be fool by the marketing, adequate car but Civic it isn't.
Blue-tooth, Ipod connector
Better interior comfort.
Fix the transmission and TPMS issues (seems to be common to many people.)
