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


I have had no problems with this $15,000 car in my 3+ years of ownership which is more than I can say for my $40,000 Acura MDX. Other than the Passenger Airbag Sensor recall, this car has not been in for repairs other than the regular scheduled. The MDX has had several recalls for major items - power steering pump, transmission. Also had a cracked fuel tank pipe. It's really too bad that Hyundai is still getting penalized for being Korean and Acura/Honda gets high praise for being Japanese. I'll buy another Hyundai before a Honda/Acura product.

Best Features

5 speed manual - maybe not as slick as some but still alot of fun to drive. Hatchback - too bad that hatchbacks aren't as popular in the US. I can carry full size furniture with the seat folded.

Worst Features

Better tires - yes they're quiet but not much use in rain/snow. Sportier suspension - it is afterall labeled a GT. Faster wipers.
