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


This car was ok at first. Nothing fancy although it's always been terribly uncomfortable on your back. The leather seats are hard and have never softened up. Now at 75K miles all four struts need to be replaced and there is a weird humming from the rear end. It leaks water going through the car wash - always has. Some rust on the rear wheel well, thought it would have held up better than that, but maybe because of the salty winter roads. Have replaced all the brake pads and tires, to be expected. The clear coat is chipped up pretty bad on the hood from gravel? I waxed it (black) and every pit showed up white from the wax. Oh and the hatchback struts? wont keep the hatch open anymore-Annoying

Best Features

Can fit just about anything in this hatchback. Once hauled a deep freezer in without a problem.

Worst Features

Too many to mention.
