Test drove the Honda Civic, Accord, and Scions.
None could compete with the Elantra's price, equipment, style, warranty, and mileage.
It is a very comfortable and fun car to drive.
Back seat leg room in very impressive for its class.
The only feature I don't like is the flat repair kit in place of a spare tire.
Local dealerships were trying to add an additional $3,000 over MSRP, but I found a customer oriented dealership that didn't feel like taking advantage of customers on the popular models and sold me the car at a very good price.
Lights are great.
Love the front and rear heated seats, bluetooth, and steering wheel controls.
