2002 Hyundai Elantra Sedan GLS 4dr Sedan (2.0L 4cyl 5M)


Review

Have owned many vehicles--vans, SUV,
sedans, sub compacts--this is among the
best I have had--as soon as I brought it
home, my wife decided she liked it more
than her 2001 pearl white Sonata, a
larger, more expensive vehicle. For all
of you looking at the more expensive
Corollas, Sentras, and Civics, please do
yourself a favor and drive this one
also. Happy car hunting.


Best Features

attractive, functional interior, standard convenience items--power locks, windows and mirrors--good handling, adequate power


Worst Features

can't think of any

2002 Hyundai Elantra Sedan GLS 4dr Sedan (2.0L 4cyl 5M)


Review

This is my first new car and it's
everything I could have asked for. I
just got back from my first road trip
(1200 miles round trip), the seats are
comfortable, the ride smooth,enough
acceleration to get around the tractor
trailers and excellent gas milage(I got
35 mpg on my trip). The car is decent
in the snow, not an AWD vehicle, but
capable enough. I would recommend this
car to anyone looking for a brand new
car, especially with the HUGE warranty
and the huge list of standard features.


Best Features

All the standard features that you get in the base price. Handles well through corners and excellent gas milage.


Worst Features

Cheaper ABS and Traction Control, more body styles.

Review

I bought an Accent in 95. I was
completely surprised at how
reliable this car was.I drove the heck
out of that car, and finally it came
time to upgrade to something bigger
that I felt safe driving around L.A.
in. I shopped around for a good 4-5
months and drove several different
cars. I was a bit biased towards the
Hyundai, so I spent a little more time
at Keyes. I had a great meeting at the
dealership with the internet managers
and they could not have been nicer. I
got a great deal on a great car. My
Elantra is comfortable, handles well,
feels great on the road and gets
excellent gas mileage.Hyundai makes
great cars and deserves more respect.


Best Features

Sporty drive, good suspension, interior is comfortable.


Worst Features

Keyless entry should be a standard feature, I think. If you have power door locks, it's a bit inconvenient to not have a key fob.

Review

used to drive a jeep grand cherokee
which i ran into the ground. bought
the 2002 elantra after doing a lot of
research. liked the standard features
offered and bargain price and
warranty. generally like the car but
find it to be awful in bad weather
(rain/snow). car doesn't hold the road
at all, slides all over. generally
like the car but wonder if i shouldn't
have bought another 4 x 4. also have
problems with the rear doors not
shutting firmly. brakes squeak and
wipers scrape. this after only 5
months of use. a sign of other
nuisance problems to come ????


Best Features

keyless entry.


Worst Features

need to improve the road control in bad weather .. improve brakes squeaking and wipers scraping. need better placed cup holders.
