1997 Hyundai Elantra 4dr Sedan


I bought the car new. I had a problem
with the overflow leaking. I think
that it was the dealers b.s. though.
Their has always been a problem when I
fill the gas tank; it puts out a strong
gas odor. I have brought it in and of
course they don't know what it is. I
have had 4/5 new gas caps. I too have
a problem with the door handle. The car
has been from NY to FL a
dozen times and to GA a few too. I
have another car now; (due to a growing
family, it doesn't hold more than 2 car
seats) but the elantra still bails me
out in any snow storm. Or any other
time I need it and is now driven on a
more part time basis by my other half.

Best Features

A great car in it's class. It is great in the snow. It got hit in the front corner by a suv and did more damage to the suv. No injury to me.

Worst Features

The cup holder is in a bad place. The door handle needs better construction.
