2001 Hyundai Elantra Hatchback GT 4dr Hatchback (2.0L 4cyl 5M)


Review

I haven't spent a cent on repairs, or
had it in the shop other than for
regular maintenance. You will have a
hard time finding a better value for
you dollar than this auto. On the
highway I average 35 mpg and in mixed
driving (hard) I average 25 mpg. The
a/c and heating systems are the best in
any car I have owned, including several
luxury cars.


Best Features

Value, features, a/c and heating systems, sound system rocks!


Worst Features

None!

2001 Hyundai Elantra Hatchback GT 4dr Hatchback (2.0L 4cyl 5M)


Review

When I travel I often rent out mid and
full size cars. More often than not I
look forward to going back home to my
Elantra GT. The driving dynamics are
perfectly suited to my tastes. Not too
soft and handles expansion joints with
aplomb.




Best Features

Reliability has been perfect for my two years of ownership. A long list of features some of which do not show up on cars costing 10K more.


Worst Features

All this car needs more of is engine power 20 to 30 more horsepower and you could show me a Saab and I could care less.

Review

This is my commuting car, 58 miles
each way most days. If you are looking
for a car with decent room, all the
comforts (CD, Leather, ABS, power
everything) & great mileage (I average
29.2 mpg, 90% highway), but don't want
to pay for a luxury car, this is the
unit for you. I picked mine up online
at the end of the design year for 16K
out the door. Plan to drive it until
the wheels fall off. Problems fixed
under warranty: rattle in headliner,
A/C compressor whine & loose air bag
light connector.


Best Features

5 year/60K B to B and 10 year/100K powertrain warranties. Great rear seat leg/headroom for a compact car. Hatchback & fold down rear seats are great for shopping, etc. Auto off/on lights are great too.


Worst Features

Small stuff: Intermittent feature of rear wiper is too fast. Unless you are in a downpour you cannot leave the wiper on. Fog lamps are impossible to replace without jacking the car up off the ground. Battery has to be pulled to access the left headlamp.

Review

We purchased our Elantra over two
years ago. I have never held on to a
car as long as this one because it is
comfortable, reliable, dependable
and you just can't beat the warranty! I
would recommend this car to
everyone. My stereo system sounds
better than the one in my husband's
Toyota! There is only one thing I
would correct and that is the wind
noise. Please note that this is true in
all of the cars that I have owned -
even Toyota and Honda.


Best Features

Fun to drive, sporty looking and great stereo.
