1999 Hyundai Elantra Wagon GL 4dr Wagon


Review

I bought this car when Hyundai just started giving their 100,000 mile warranty after having some bad reviews previously. My choice was between a Honda Civic, which I had before and the Hyundai Elantra wagon which was 2000 less in price with only a 3 year warranty. I took a chance and bought the Hyundai. (both choices were manual shift which I always drive). I made the right choice and have been very happy with this car. I do all short trips, no highway driving. I just had to replace the clutch at 45,000. My first big expense. It now drives like a new car. very peppy! All other repairs have been normal wear and tear. Oil changes only $10 at dealership. I'm happy!


Best Features

Wagon provides plenty of room for whatever I need to haul. Garden stuff, mower, groceries etc.


Worst Features

None

Review

My husband bought me my little red
wagon (same as in the photo actually!)
in Aug. of 1999. Parts that we have
replaced were all past the normal wear
mark and we have done NO major repairs
at approx. 36000 miles. Great
warranty, roadside assistance, great
price. Actually recommended the car to
my mom and she purchased a 2001 Elantra
sedan-what more can I say?? Next - I
want the Sonata!


Best Features

Cute, and able to haul more than you think. Able to just barely squeeze 3 car seats in across.


Worst Features

Wish it was still being made! I would've purchased another one when this one is paid off.

Review

ABought this car 7/99 new for less than
$12K. I should have bought the GLS
with the rear wiper, but am very
satisfied w/the car. Turned 90k miles
this week and now need new brake pads
(2nd pair and rotors were never cut).
Never did the timing belt yet - waiting
for 100K. Did have 1 occurence of the
check engine light - my brother filled
the car w/gas and "topped it off" so it
messed up the sensor. I would
definitely buy another Hyundai - can't
beat the warranty and the space for the
$$$.


Best Features

All Power - windows, door locks, mirrors.


Worst Features

Road noise - don't know if it's due to the roof racks.

Review

I've had this car for just over 2
years and no problems at all-- I love
it! I had intended to buy a used
Jetta, but this car stole my heart and
I still love to drive it. It's
definitely a lot of car for the price.
5 adults fit comfortably, with plenty
of room for cargo as well.


Best Features

Roomy! It's got a nice feeling steering wheel, plenty of space but still small enough to be a compact and easy to park.


Worst Features

The road noise is awful, and we do seem to be getting lots of rattles (nothing visible, just audible rattling).

Review

This car has been the best car for the money. It is roomie, inexpensive, and reliable. For the money, it cannot be beat.


Best Features

Size, size, size, reliability, controls, style


Worst Features

AM reception, I did not buy the GLS but rear seat head rests would be a plus, a warning that the lights are on and a rear window wiper.
