1998 Hyundai Elantra 4dr Sedan


This car was a mistake to purchase, but I have had it for a year and a half. Between transmission issues and constant problems. Do not buy any hyundai.

Not a very good review dude. Care to elaborate on your, "issues" other than the transmission? I Think you are being a little unfair on the cars real pluses and minuses and have graded it wildly wrong. Do you know anything of its past history and what was replaced/maintained? How do you maintain your vehicles? Those important details are what make a good review. Sometimes, people buy a used car and expect it to be like new performance. You NEVER should have that mentality! Poorly maintained cars simply don't last. If its breaking, or broken, FIX it.. and often those issues don't show up again. Maintenance is KEY to anything mechanical. Its USED and with it, whatever the owner did/did not do for the car falls on you to be responsible for. If it fell close to the end of its warranty or just after, most people start to slack off for care. I wouldn't blame the manufacturer for what sounds like the owner before just didn't care about. Sorry about your problems, but your review is just too vague and again, unfairly judged.
