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


I brought the car in 2007 with 32,000. Besides needing to take it in after a couple of months because of a bad transmission range switch, it was good just needed normal maintenance.

I sold it a couple of days of ago because at 1116,000 miles the transmission started to slip which a any transmission work would cost more than the car was worth.

Overall considering the age of the car and the fact that it was in the rust belt, it was pretty good.

Best Features

- Good fuel economy +35mpg - Comfortable seats - Easy to do basic maintenance on

Worst Features

- A little bit more robust transmission (others I know have had similar issues with the automatics) - CD player that can shuffle - Longer lasting headlights
