2002 Hyundai Elantra Hatchback GT 4dr Hatchback (2.0L 4cyl 5M)


Review

I researched new cars for over six
months and just couldn't help feeling
ripped off by all other makes after
taking a closer look at Hyundai. All
the features I wanted, for $3000 less
than a Civic EX! (And a 10-year
warranty to calm my fears about
reliability...)

What about resale value? What I'll get
less for it in a few years is in my
bank account now--collecting interest.

Love the responsive ride, ergonomics,
large load capacity, Euro styling.
Nothing rattles, automatic
transmission shifts as smooth as
butter.


Best Features

Sporty suspension, 4 disc brakes, 2 liter engine, i.e. smooth and quiet ride on highway, hatchback.


Worst Features

None I can think of so far. I have loved every minute in the car!

Review

What can I say about this car only
that Hyundai must be losing money on
this one. I think they are trying
hard for market share. Man...I love
this car....Black and fine. In a few
years I will put 16's on it and mabye
lower it about 1 1/2 inches. If this
thing had a turbo...I'm telling you
there would be no need to even test
drive anything within 10K of it's
price.


Best Features

Styling, ride


Worst Features

Turbo and bigger wheels

Review

Just returned from a 3000km round trip
from Calgary to Vancouver Island. A
lot of mountain driving - steep hills,
lots of twists. The car handled like a
sports car and was able to negotiate
all but the slowest and steepest roads
in 5th. Gas mileage 6.7litres/100km or
35mpg US. Drove at 60 - 75 mph where
road conditions allowed. Researched
this vehicle 1 year before buying.
It's exceeded my wildest dreams.


Best Features

The whole car!


Worst Features

The radio controls too small and complicated.

Review

Without a doubt this is one of the most
enjoyable cars to drive that I have
ever owned. I did a lot of research on
a third car for my family and the
Elantra GT fit the bill perfectly. The
only problem as I see it, is I may not
want to give it to my daughter when she
goes to college.


Best Features

Handling! This car hugs the road better than any car I have ever owned. Great warranty!


Worst Features

Put in a real horn. Armrests need to be improved.

Review

Plenty o' character in this car with
the best apparent value of all I
researched and tested. Hot, fun,
practical, and a bit different (read:
better) than your neighbor's. I'm
consistently glad I chose it, and my
friends are pleasantly surprised when
they check it out.


Best Features

Purple-illuminated instrument cluster. Generous driver shoulder space. Cruise control. Variable intermittent wipers. Leather (simple, but classy). Keyless entry (lights flash not horn honk). Convenient power windows. Gas cap holder. And on...


Worst Features

More room for (driver) left foot. More start line power and low- to mid-range oomph. More light in hatch. Bigger stereo knobs. Firmer shift knob movement. Offering of stand-alone ABS/TCS option.
