Loved and now hate this car
By smm7 on


2001 Hyundai Elantra GLS 4dr Sedan (2.0L 4cyl 5M)


I bought this car in 2007 when it had 120,000 miles on it.
It now has 190,000 miles, and I'm still driving it.
There are good and bad things I've encountered.
Good things- I love small cars, easy to drive, gets around very well in snow storms surprisingly, and it has never had engine or tranny issues.
Bad things- I've pumped tons of money in this car to keep it going.
From the radiator to the belts and everything in between.
And the paint is horrible. It's looks like crap and all peeled off on the hood, top, and trunk.
It looks horrible now.
It's still getting me places, and after 5 years, this is the longest I've had the same car, but I can't wait to get rid of it.

Best Features

Small, easy to drive, gets around well.

Worst Features

I hope the newer models have a better paint job that lasts longer than a few years.
