2003 Hyundai Elantra GLS 4dr Sedan (2.0L 4cyl 5M)


Bought this car second hand with low miles for a occasional trip and back and forth to work car. In town MPG sucks for this car. With A/C on car has little power so always finding myself putting it to the floor to keep up. Does ok with a/c off. Very comfy seats and layout isn't bad. Highway MPG is ok but still under 30 avg 65 mph. Gremlins start to show up after 50k miles but knock on wood, still hasn't left me stranded. Transmission likes to slip when real light pedal pressure is applied. Rattling/ticking noise started around engine sometime ago. Figured it was cheap gas but ran 93 octane still no help. Looking at new cars now. Hyundai? Ehh...I dunno. Warranty only 50k after 1st owner.

Best Features

Comfort,a/c freezes u out,good ride,good layout of controls

Worst Features

Easily dented/scratched,tranny issues,MPG!!!? Hyundai now has 100k powertrain for owners after the first but does nothing for prior years
