I bought this car new because it had
5yr. unlimited mileage warranty. I
expected to throw it away after the 5
yr. period. 9 years later, we still
have the car. The only expense were
regular oil changes, new tires, brake
pads. No rust! Starts in -40. Has lots
of power for a 4banger (125hp). Looks
great even after 9 years.
Engine: 1.8L DOHC with 2 balancing
Price was great.
I bought my Elantra with 117000 miles
on it. The gas mileage is about 27 on
the highway. I like the way the
interior is set up> Im not too wild
about the lavender paint though. The
power is sufficent for the engine size.
Gas mileage, handling, interior looks.
Need to make the door latches better.
only unlocks from passengers side.
For a 1st car, this did the trick.
Since owning the car, I never had any
problems w/ it. It had great gas
mileage and plenty of room inside. I
bought the car at around 70,000 and all
ran swimmingly...up until its
unfortunate demise in an accident (STAY
ON YOUR SIDE). In my accident, the car
automatically shut off as it should
have (I've heard of stories where
people's cars didn't shut off after
having an accident) and the air bag
deployed on cue (thank goodness). All
in all, a pretty decent car.
I bought this car with 60,000 miles.
Immediatly the transmission went out.
Soon after the back doors broke and
wouldnt open from the inside or
outside. Being a single mom that killed
the convience of having a four door. I
will never buy one of these cars again
nor would i recommned it to my worst
