Pleasantly surprised!!

1996 Hyundai Elantra GLS 4dr Sedan


Car has done us well as we have over
125,000 miles now. Changed the oil
every 3000 miles and the car has
reciprocated. Only problems have been
with the check engine light coming on
(several recalls and a new gas cap).
Have only replaced the clutch once and
the brakes once or twice. Recently had
to replace the wiper motor and window
regulator at about $200 each, but
that's been the only problems. Just
bought a 2003 Santa Fe based upon our
favorable experience with this car.

Best Features

Great gas mileage (over 400 miles/tank), surprising acceleration with a 5-speed, GLS came with power windows/locks/mirrors and AC for a great price. Fold down rear seats are very practical.

Worst Features

Interior - road noise is loud at or above 70 MPH.
