Mine just died...
By 00elantra on


2000 Hyundai Elantra GLS 4dr Sedan


I bought my 2000 Elantra in '05 (and it's actually an automatic transmission - not given that option in dropdown box), and it has officially died right at 150,000 miles. The head gasket is leaking - I could replace for about $1,200, but I'm not. AC compressor happens to be leaking / needs replacement also at this time. It was a fine little car while it lasted. Only major repairs prior to this were: front strut mounts at 120k miles; entire radiator replaced at 100k; CV joint / axle joint issues couple times (not a big deal); went through many tires & car pulled most of the time. Very little mechanical issues.

Best Features

Decent sized trunk. 25 MPG consistently. Reliable. Cheap. Great value.

Worst Features

Cup holders in front are in an awkward spot. Issues with accessories - poor build quality: a power window stopped working; passenger door became difficult to unlock; remote door unlock stopped working very early on.
