1996 Hyundai Elantra 4dr Sedan


I got this car used from a family
friend, and have had a love hate
relationship with it ever since. The
car is very fun to drive, it being a 5
speed manual, but everything on it
except the engine is crap. Literally
every creature comfort has broken on
this car: the sun roof, power windows,
interior door handles x2, head liner,
plastic molding, weather stripping, etc.
Aside from the numerous problems with
the unessentials (everything but the
engine) I have loved every minute of
owning this car. I would recomend one
for a high school students first car.

Best Features

Great handling and drivability with the stick. Will run forever, while slowly deteriorating along the way...

Worst Features

Stop using the cheapest parts for the interior.
