Not a half bad car considering the price

1992 Hyundai Elantra 4dr Sedan


I purchased this Hyundai as my first car
. Since then I've been using it for
delivering pizza. After adding over
40000km to it I have a few things to say.

The following has gone wrong:

Muffler fell off, $90. Shifter cable
snappe...on the freeway, $114. CV boots
tore off $40 (diy). Synchronizers shot,
$1800 to rebuild ... yeah right. $150
for a wreck and a weekend later ta da :)

It's actually a decent little beater.
Good on gas, has had only the problems
you'd expect for an econo import with
200k+ on it, no body rust, not interior
wear, and runs smooth as the day I got it.

Best Features

Engine isn't half bad actually, for a little 4 banger. Still, once you hit 4th it's gutless, and passing on the highway can be tricky. And the handling is awesome, very controlled cornering, but you feel every pebble.

Worst Features

Road noise. It's pretty loud in there, and at highway speed the engine revs pretty high (close ratio no overdrive) so it can be an ear ache. Alright for commuting on the freeway to work and back, but I wouldn't suggest a road trip.
