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


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!


Favorite Features

Navigation, XM radio, gas mileage.


Suggested Improvements

The only things I would improve on the car are the seat cloth because it seems to absorb stains easily. Change the material of the back cover behind the back seats and console between front seats as they look too plasticy.

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!!!


Favorite Features

No favorite features. No spare tire, no radio. Can't find anything good to say about it. Doesn't even get the mileage they state.


Suggested Improvements

Stand behind your product!

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!


Favorite Features

If you want a family car, you treat car as your wife it is ecellent car. If you are young and want a car that is fast and strong the elantra is not the good choice for you. Thanks for reading.

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.


Favorite Features

The exterior design looks amazing and the gas mileage cannot be beat, especially for how roomy the interior and the trunk is. The radio set up is very nice as well, and though I didn't get the Bluetooth feature, I do appreciate the iPod set up as opposed to a standard AUX port.


Suggested Improvements

Though I understand the idea of the pump and seal device in order to maintain mileage, that still won't do a whole lot if you suffer a large gash in your tire. I would just feel more comfortable having a spare tire as opposed to the pump.

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.


Favorite Features

The gas milage on the road and in town is fantastic.
