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


Purchased my GT hatch with 62K for $5600 and after a routine dealer service (rather pricey) have had absolutely no mechanical issues in almost 20K of driving. Mileage is great and there's plenty of highway passing pep. Interior space is incredible. I fit two solid plastic 8X4 ft. folding leg tables AND 8 non- fold hard plastic table chairs in the back and was able to fully close the boot. Who needs a truck? Only annoyances I have are the standard rear seat drip leak & the factory CD player doesn't play burned CDs. In the grand scheme no biggie. The Excel days are CLEARLY over and with their model linup expanding I can easily say Hyundai will again be in my future.

Best Features

Hatch versatility, tight steering, leather seats

Worst Features

Whoa back on the $900 routine 30K/60K/90K service call (thank God I know how to change oil), bring back the hatch!
