I have had my Elantra for almost a year and 18000 miles into the service I am in a position to provide some feedback. As far as the gas mileage I am resigned to the fact that the vehicle is going to give me avearage 26-27 in mixed city/highway driving. At this time I have found a couple of things that are annoying and I wonder if other owners face the same issues: 1) When coming to stop the shifter gear makes a clicking noise. I have taken this to the dealer and they replaced the shifter solenoid but it hasn't entirely resolved it and I still get the noise most the time when the vehicle is coming to stop. Another issue is the clicking noise from front left tire when driving over certain bump
Nice interior and exterior. The seats are comfortable and the trunk is pretty roomy for a vehicle this size.
Improve sound control. Fix the shifter gear noise issue. Improve the quality of cloth seats so they don't easily get stained. Make the transmission smoother.
