2011 Hyundai Elantra GLS PZEV 4dr Sedan (1.8L 4cyl 6A)
The Elantra caught my eye with its good looks, lots of room inside and spacious trunk for a small car.
Comparatively the other cars I tested in the 30-40mpg range were very small inside. Mileage so far has ranged from 30mg to 36mpg, both city and highway.
Traffic light stops cut the fuel economy.
On the highway the suspension is very stiff, I feel all the bumps in the road, and the wind pushing the car on windy days. Also dissapointed that the Elantra does not come with a spare tire! I've never had a Hyundai before, I'm concerned about what winter driving in snow and ice will be like, mine has Continental tires.
stereo system, roomy interior and trunk
The car needs to improve comfort of driver's seat and suspension in handling road bumps.
Feels like sometimes is "bounces" off road imperfections, makes me wonder what winter driving and wet traction will be like. Need a spare tire and jack please.
A can of fix-a-flat is a poor substitute.
