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


Review

Awesome care, only been to the shop
once and that was to fix a scratch. i
love driving it. i have the 5spd
manual and it really puts the power to
the ground. this car rivals other more
expensive makes in its quality and
tasteful design inside and out.
heck, even my engine has a decorative
cover.
i love my elantra.

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


Review

I would like readers of my review to
keep in mind that I think very highly
of this car because it has a lot of
features and refinement for the money.
However there are some negatives. The
styling is rather bland both inside
and out. The fuel economy is not as
good as it could be compared to other
commuter cars like the Civic and
Corolla. The leather seats are not as
comfortable as they could be. The
car's value comes in when talking
about the powertrain and build quality
which are both very smooth, tight,
powerful, and quiet. The car gives
the driver the feeling that it will
last for a very long time. I would
recommend this car to anybody who
values quality and price.


Best Features

I like the list of features that come with this car. The headlights light up the road very well. The fog lights and cruise control are easy to use and very useful. The AC unit is very simple and functional. The steering is very smooth yet sporty. The suspension is also sporty and tight.


Worst Features

The Kenwood CD needs to be replaced. It is weak at 50 watts and looks cheap. Lights need to be installed on the vanity mirrors and glovebox. Shorter travel for the clutch is needed. Antenna should not be the fixed type but should be integrated into the rear window or retractable.

Review

I am so excited about my Elantra that I
thought I needed to let people know why.
I looked at several cars in
this "genre" before I made my final
decision. I bought me a new Hyndai
Elantra in 1993 so I was already
familiar with the company and vehicle.
I did look at the cars that everyone
looks at ie Honda and Toyota. Price
for price and pound for pound I will
put my 2004 Elantra up against the
Civic or Corolla anyday. The financial
incentives were awesome, saving me
$2500.00, which was what the 5 year
extended bumber to bumper warranty cost
so I went ahead and got it. Now I can
rest easy knowing that for the next 10
years my Elantra is covered bumper to
bumper no questions asked.


Best Features

Security system, 6 speaker CD system, "cubby hole" storage all over the place, 4 cup holders in front-two in back, a quiet excellent ride, a potpourri of standard features, front and side air bags, keyless entry, great mileage, power locks and windows, AT, a luxury car at a cheap price.


Worst Features

More color choices and daytime headlights. Nightime headlight feature where the headlights stay on a bit after you get out of the car. And keyless remote trunk entry like my 93 model had.

Review

I went out and intended to buy a Honda
Civic, or something similar. I bought
the 2004 Elantra, and I'm *very* happy
with that choice. 2/3rds the cost of a
similarly-equipped Civic, I have no
complaints after 15k miles. It also has
130 hp, instead of the 105ish that
seemed to be the standard in this
size/cost class.
