Buyer Beware
By Henry on


2001 Hyundai Elantra GLS 4dr Sedan (2.0L 4cyl 4A)


I've owned my Elantra for almost a year, I bought it for around $4,500 in 2009. As I write this considering the age and mileage of my car I have boon somewhat lucky considering how hard I drive it. I have had some somewhat minor issues like CV joint problems and ball joint issues. Still I would definitely not recommend anyone buy one, unless it was in very good shape. Look into buying a reliable car and don't rush into buying. I wish someone would have told me this but instead I rushed and bought something cheap and I could have done better and so can you.

Best Features

Trunk space, interior room, Easy to use and read interior gauge, although my radio light is broken. Horrible paint quality. Squeaky time

Worst Features

Acceleration, Exterior design, Interior quality, Can't handle the slightest heavy load.. the car has horrible drag with more then four people. Also my auto driver side window button gets stuck. Car shakes at high speeds. High noise over 40 mph. Gas mileage isn't nearly where it's suggested.
