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.

Favorite Features

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

Suggested Improvements

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....
