I bought this car in 2011 and have only done routine maintenance (brakes and tires). So far so good.

Review

I love my car. I have had it for 3 years and never had any issues. Gas milage is awesome and I get money reimbursed to me every time I take it in for an oil change - win win for me. BUT around 87,000 the car started to stall on me when I stopped. Check engine light came on so I took it to my mechanic. He said when hooked up to a computer it says "needs new engine". So I get it towed to Hyundai. They replace an oil senor valve (covered under extended warranty) and it ran fine for about 1500 miles. Then it started to stall again. I took it back immediately and now it is giving 2 codes and one of them is replace the engine. Now I am getting "I am not sure if Hyundai will cover this"!


Best Features

Love having a stick shift!


Worst Features

Needs a spare tire!!!!! What the flip? Every car should have a spare tire. I went and got a cheap spare to throw in the back.

Review

I have owned my 2012 Elantra for about a year and a half. I have just short of 18,000 miles on
it. I bought this car mainly for it's looks and gas
mileage. It doesn't disappoint in either category.
I have averaged 32.5 mpg between city and hwy
driving, but i'm also an enthusiastic driver. I have found the econo mode makes about a 2 mpg difference when it's turned off. I have
achieved 40 mpg on the highway with econo
mode on.The car is a bit for fun to drive with it turned off. Only 1 minor problem. On long trips of 1000 miles or more, I will stop at a rest stop in the middle of the trip and when I get back in the cruise will stop working for 20-30 miles - then start working again.


Best Features

Style, gas mileage, warranty


Worst Features

more compliant shocks. The car rides fine until it gets on broken roads, then it jumps around a bit. I never feel unsafe in it though
