I wouldn't buy it again.

2011 Hyundai Elantra GLS 4dr Sedan (1.8L 4cyl 6A)

Review

I got this car in May 2011 with only 10 miles on it. At 63,xxx miles the wheel bearings went out, on the driver side then 65,xxx the left side. at 85,xxx spark plugs and computer update. Now at 94,xxx miles the drive train broke. I have a 100,000 mile warranty so its covered. But this car is sluggish at times and the gas milage isn't all that. I average 32 mpg. I drive mostly highway some city. Lots of backroads and hills. The car dents very easy with door dings galore and a small hail storm got the best of it. I found putting V-Power gas in it makes it run alot better. (cost alot more though) and the seats stain with just water.

Review

I love this vehicle. I am leasing this vehicle and would love to own it. Thinking of purchasing it or even rolling my new lease to another, newer Elantra. Overall, this car is excellent and has been very reliable. Hyundai has stood by their advertisements with the fuel-efficiency even though they give me a check for every five thousand miles due to a suit pressed against them for failed fuel-efficiency. I live in the city and drive highways daily. I get 38-40.5 MPG Highway and/ or 30-35 MPG City. I drive 60 miles give or take a day.

WHITE PEARL ELANTRA-PAINT ISSUES ON PLASTIC SURFACES

Review

I own a 2011 white pearl Elantra. The paint of the front bumper is a different shade of white than the side panels. Positively more yellow and less pearly. The dealer and Hyundai Motor representatives acknowledge the problem (fading) but states that my issue is, I quote: "consistent amongst all similar vehicles". In plain English :"we are aware of the problem but since nobody complains you'd better live with it". It is absolutely abnormal to observe this situation on a less than 2 years old car and the problem seems to get worst overtime...same problem started on door handles and rear bumper

I am middle aged so I have owned multiple cars from compact to SUV and vans. This is my favorite car ever. At 50,000 miles I get 40 miles a gallon... 35 city. I drive a long way to work so this really helps.

Don't be seduced by the phantom fuel economy

2011 Hyundai Elantra GLS 4dr Sedan (1.8L 4cyl 6A)

Review

Had our GL for almost two years and got our best mileage during the break in period which we were told was 3k. It didn't get better after 3k. We were told that the break in period is actually 5k. It didn't get better after 5k. T keep this shorter, we went in after each required distance had been travelled and each time were told that it was more. After 5k it was 7k then 10k then 12.5k then 15k then, finally we were told that under no circumstances is break in less than 20k, ever. Where did all the other numbers come from then? Bottom line, we are at over 29k now and we get the worst mileage in the life of the car. We're getting 11-14L/100 km. We're extremely disappointed.

Review

We have had our 2011 Elantra for about 1.5 years. We have about 28K on the car and have had no problems whatsoever. I regularly get 35 mpg in mixed driving and get 40 mpg in highway only driving. We got the navigation and it works very well. Its a fun little car that is great for commuting!

Audio Fails
By hatelantra on 08/23/12 01:17 AM (PDT)

Vehicle

2011 Hyundai Elantra GLS 4dr Sedan (1.8L 4cyl 6A)

Review

We drive 200 miles a day to commute. We have 62,xxx on our 2011 Elantra and the audio system has failed. It's not the fuse, we checked that. The dealer told us since we have so many miles on our car that it is no longer under warranty. He said it went out of warranty at 36,xxx. I don't care how many miles you have on a car, the audio system should not go out like this. We have owned the Accent, Tiburon, Sonata and have previously been happy Hyundai owners. This one has thoroughly spoiled my view on the Hyundai manufacturers for not standing behind their product. I read that a salesman on here who drives a lot had the same problem. Never buy this new Elantra!!!

advertised gas mileage problem, reliability zero

Vehicle

2011 Hyundai Elantra GLS 4dr Sedan (1.8L 4cyl 6A)

Review

I bought it in July 2011 and i investigated some problems. First of all, if you like drive fast, it doesnt dispose of buying that car because when the ECO is not seen, its fuel consumption is very bad and it is not economic about fuel consumption.The second one is about noise. After 6 month the noise emerged and while i am using it, the noise is increasing. It specifies itself when you are on the damaged road.The other one is that the car is very light. If you are going with 60 mile per hour and suddenly apply brakes the car will fly. The back of the car is dancing. Thats why in that car safety is zero!

Great Car!

2011 Hyundai Elantra GLS 4dr Sedan (1.8L 4cyl 6A)

Review

A few years ago, I never would have given a Hyundai a second glance but I love my 2011 Elantra. I typically average 40 (sometimes higher) on my long commutes during the day and still get about 30 in the city. This has cut my gas bill quite a bit. The entire looks amazing though the black can make it pretty warm during the summer. Has many great safety features and the warranties beat pretty much any other car I researched before purchasing. Only downside I've come across so far is Hyundai's replacement of a spare for the pump and seal device in order to maintain good fuel economy. Once my roadside assistance is up, I'll probably invest in a spare.

Great MPG

Review

Mine has a little over 14000 miles on it. I drove this car at the posted speed of 55 and got 52.5 mpg, so I can't complain my Jeep only got 16 on the road, so this was really a great improvement.
