So far, so good...

2013 Hyundai Elantra GT 4dr Hatchback (1.8L 4cyl 6M)


I've had my Elantra GT almost three months and nearly 4000 miles.
Mine came with the "Touch & Go" package.
Additionally, I preferred the manual transmission.
Which brings me to the point of my review:
I am getting better than the advertised mileage.
On the highway, with limits varying between 55 mph and 70 mph, I typically get between 39 and 40 mpg.
Sometimes more but rarely less.
Around town, I can get as much as 31 to 32 mpg or as little as 27 mpg.
Typically, it will depend on the number of stoplights that trip has.
Even with a canoe and a kayak on a Yakima rack, I was able to get 31 mpg on country secondary roads with 55 mph speed limits.
The difference might be the transmission

Mileage, leg room, cargo space,

Worst Features

I would really prefer to have a gauge for the generator/alternator and one for the oil pressure as opposed to the "idiot lights". Also, my insurance carrier has provided me with a device that plugs into the OBD II port. Hopefully, that will result in some savings, but the panel cover will not fit with the device in place. I suspect this is a trend which will grow, so hopefully accommodations will be made for this in future models.
