130,000K miles, and it's perfect!

2004 Hyundai Elantra GLS 4dr Sedan (2.0L 4cyl 5M)


This car was bought for my eldest brother when he started college. He got this car in '11 with 101K miles on it. Since then, another 30ishK miles have come and gone, and it's as fresh as ever. It does show it's age (fuel tank has hairline fracture in it, has needed a lot of engine parts replaced recently) but for a car driven like this one, it's not bad at all! The manual gets better MPG's than our 40K mile '06 auto elantra, and it looks just as good! Just one problem with this car, and that's the trunk. It's large, but not as larger as the hatch's. Overall, a great 1'st car (especially for $4995!) Only problem right now is a missing trim piece that fell off due to bad glue!

Best Features

The shifter is nice and light, sound system (has aftermarket subwoofer) is as good as ones in brand new cars, and it's very good in the snow.

Worst Features

After the 120K mark, watch out for the window trim, if you live in a wet, rainy place, it will fall off. Window mechanisms are also flimsy, we had 2 brake,one during a rainstorm, with the window down!
