Falling apart
By janey on


2000 Hyundai Elantra GLS 4dr Sedan


I bought this car used in 2004. The window switch for one window was broken and the speedometer had been replaced around 14,000 miles. Since then, the switch to another window, as well as the regulators to two windows, have died. An outside door handle broke off. The transmission went out in 2006 (a bearing "disintegrated," according to the technician) and is going out again now (2010). The computer is dying and the throttle position sensor. There is a short in the dash that makes the interior lights come on and off randomly, and sometimes a little puff of smoke comes out of the steering column. The seating is uncomfortable and the cup holders are in front of the stereo.

Best Features

The AC has always been great. Plenty of leg room for a small car. Sufficient power on steep hills. Still going even with all the problems.

Worst Features

Transmission! Center rather than dash cup holders. Different window regulator design that doesn't involve wrapping wire around brittle plastic to control window movement.
