Probably going to jinx myself with this review

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


Gotta say, I didn't expect much when I picked mine up at an auction for $3600 with 93K on it.
Now three years later and double the mileage I am singing the praises of Hyundai.
Must agree with what others are writing - loud road noise, ride is rough and it absolutely eats headlights for some reason, BUT this thing gets me to and from work everyday 130 miles round trip.
Left me stranded one time with a broken fan belt and another time because the battery went dead - my own fault.
I like the car so much that my wife now needs a car to go back and forth to school and I'm going to look at a 2004 model that is identical to mine.
That is the best compliment I can think of.

Best Features

It's sporty and it handles very well.

Worst Features

Of course - fix the dang headlight issue. More because one side is a royal pain to replace - other side, opposite of battery takes five minutes - battery side takes half an hour.
