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


I bought this car brand new and have driven 122,000 miles with NO major problems. The suspension, exhaust, and air conditioning are all holding up well and have never been serviced! The ONLY thing I think Hyundai could have done better is increase the time between replacements of the timing belt which is set for every 60k miles. Dealerships want to charge over $1100 for the service, but I can get it done at Midas for $450 - it's a pain because they usually want the car for the entire day. Even with that, the maintenance costs have been super low and all I do is regular oil changes. I hope to keep this car for another 80k at least!

Best Features

All the standard equipment with the GT.

Worst Features

Increase the time between timing belt changes. 60k miles is too often!
