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


I had hoped that the 10 yr/100,000 mile warranty meant that Hyundai was wanted to prove they were making reliable vehicles like Honda or Nissan. Nope. I think they were counting on the average consumer trading in at 3 or 4 years and less than 60,000. The warranty has covered a few things (that should not have gone bad) and not covered other stuff that also should not have gone bad (the rear wheel bearings went bad at 62,000; the sun roof started leaking within 4 years; the vehicle eats headlights and even the dealer cannot raise the headlights so that the "low beams" are useful and the "high beams" are still lower than most other vehicles low beams. I'm getting an older used Nissan instead

Best Features

Was fun to drive before I became fearful when the next breakdown would occur.

Worst Features

A warranty ought to actually cover stuff that breaks down (assuming no fault of the driver, of course)
