2012 Hyundai Elantra Limited 4dr Sedan (1.8L 4cyl 6A)

Review

Overall, this is a great car to own. Purchase price was below other vehicles ($18,100), the warranty is the best in the industry, and maintenance costs should be low. Hyundai uses a timing chain rather than a belt, so there will be no replacement needed every 60k miles like a Honda. Hyundai also has a sealed transmission that will never need to be flushed or have fluid replaced. The owner's manual also recommends changing the oil only every 7,500 miles under normal driving. Fuel efficiency has ranged from 37-39 mpg at freeway speeds in good weather, and 33-37 mpg in cold weather.

Favorite Features

Low maintenance Great style

Suggested Improvements

Make the rear heated seats optional. Add a GDI engine, please. iPod/iPhone integration not 100% perfect. Fix the "Comm Error" when shuffling your entire library. iPhone sound stops after being plugged in for 3 seconds. It works when it's reattached. Volume on Bluetooth is lower than desired. Spring loaded arms on trunk rather than Hydraulic. Handling could be more responsive and less wavering. Rear suspension; Overpasses are jolting.
