2013 Hyundai Elantra GLS 4dr Sedan (1.8L 4cyl 6A)


Review

At first we loved the car but noticed the MPG was not as described. The 1st month we had it the breaks had to be replaced because of a noise they made. Next the tires were horrible loud. After that it has gone down hill, the car shakes horrible at stop lights (while in gear) and we have had a knocking noise from the motor. Taking to the dealer several times we left with nothing done. Finally I recorded the sound and took it back where they said there was metal in my oil and they would replace the motor.. This was at 24,000 miles... New motor is now making the same noise (1,000miles later) Hyundai's answer swap motor out AGAIN. Is anyone else having these same issues???


Worst Features

See above listing..... There is something obviously wrong with the internals of the motor.

Review

Bought this cars cause it was showing 58 mpg when I bought it on the sticker in the window I get 28 mpg but I get a credit car from Hyundai for them lying about the mileage works to to fill my tank 2 times a year and I figure I'm using about 10-12 tanks extra a year. If I have 2 passengers in the back seat my wheels rub on the plastic cover in the wheels wells every dip in the highway I consider this to be a safety issue took a picture of it to the dealership and was told they put 2 people in the back of the car on the show room and it did the same thing so there's nothing they can do. I also paid 1500 for interior warranty and have a stain that they won't cover only cover threads popping


Best Features

I like the look of the car very sporty. I liked the advertised fuel mileage at what was 58mpg now down to 48mpg but it only get 28mpg.


Worst Features

Change the fuel mileage to actual mileage. Fix the struts to struts for 4 passengers in the car. Fix the Bluetooth so my phone will load when car is started Loads up maybe 20% of the time. I would also like a better answer then there's nothing we can do about it or bring it in we will give you a fuel system cleaning and charge you 330 bucks and still get the exact same fuel mileage. Maybe give me the full money I pay for extra gas to cover the 30 mpg that I'm missing out on. Overall I like the look of the car but want to trade it in but the resale values is terrible. Filling this thing almost every week. And supension is a safety hazard if traveling with 3-4 people in the car.

Review

Hyundai marketed the Elantra at 40 MPG'S> when In reality it gets about
35 MPG"S. I bought a 2012 Elantra based on the 40 MPG"S quoted. this car was suppose to save me up to $120.00 a month in gas. my last car cost me $58.00 a week to drive and so dose the Elantra. it is uncomfortable loud
poor handeling. and has a poor stereo system. you can also find other poor reviews on Edmondson.com. facebook,
and other sites just type in Elantra reviews.. Hyundai compairs the Elnatra to the Honda Civic. at a higher price tag than the civic. after resently driving other cars I found the elantra to be in a lower class such as the Mazda 3. the Corolla. and the Dodge Dart at about $16,000.00 which is a

2013 Hyundai Elantra GLS 4dr Sedan (1.8L 4cyl 6M)


Review

I've owned this car for almost 7 months so far.
At 16K miles the brakes started to make a strange noise, I thought that it must be due to the extreme cold temperatures we've been having.
NOPE, at 17k miles I'm being told that my brakes need service, and guess what it's out of pocket!
Never mind that this car is driven 80% highway with limited use of brakes (no heavy traffic).
Dealer treats this as NORMAL.
I've had a mazda3 which only needed brakes every 60Kmiles.
At this rate I'll be changing brakes every 8 months!
Very poor design Hyundai.
You may have just lost a(nother) customer.


Best Features

Exterior design, very nice. Interior design, good. Radio - decent - added a sub to make above average. Really enjoy the USB connection.


Worst Features

Tires - the "all season" tires that come with this car are OK, IF you only drive it on dry roads. Once it rains, they lose traction very easily (or my car has 300 horsepower take your pick) I'll stick with "they suck". Currently driving on winters, huge difference, although car gets sqirrely on icy roads (wanders side to side - little scary). Change the stock tires Hyundai, otherwise we all have to support Tire Rack right after we buy a new car....

Review

This was my first foreign car and I am very pleased with it so far.
Bought it new in Oct. 2013.
The gas mileage has been outstanding.
On a trip to Denver from Longmont and back which took 96 miles the computer said we averaged 46 mpg.
On average we are getting approx. 33 to 35 mpg.
