Vehicle2012 Hyundai Elantra GLS 4dr Sedan (1.8L 4cyl 6A)
ReviewI bought this Elantra over 2 years ago and have about 47k miles on it now. I have not experienced any of the mechanical or noise problems described in other reviews. The original tires were bad (noisy) and I replaced them after 40K. As far as gas mileage, I have found that there is a huge discrepancy in mileage depending on many factors: speed, outside temperature, wind, vehicle load. and terrain. I have found that headwinds or sidewinds will affect mpg up to 5 or 6. I probably average 35 mpg hwy and 28-30 city. Under optimum conditions I have consistently achieved 36-38 hwy. Would I buy another Hyundai? Maybe. Next time I'll go into something a little bigger. I am over 6'.
Best FeaturesBluetooth, self dimming mirror, overall performance. Certainly not a sports car but works well in freeway traffic.
Worst FeaturesBetter OEM tires, spare tire (I did buy one.)

The one we're looking at buying has "Goodride" tires. HAHA They're brand new, the dealer even showed us what they paid for them, about $62 each. I would rather have the money back and go get some better tires. I have to give them props for trying, I guess.Report it
