2005 Hyundai Elantra Sedan GLS 4dr Sedan (2.0L 4cyl 5M)


Review

I bought this car because I needed something cheap to get me through college. I am so pleased with my purchase. It's a basic car, but the warranty makes me feel comfortable having it for the next however many years. My only complaints are that the keyless entry does not come with a trunk release, and that a CD player is not standard. Also, sometimes I find that I have to absolutely slam the trunk before it will latch, so check that out when you're looking.


Best Features

Fuel econonmy; price


Worst Features

Trunk release on the keyless entry, CD player- I mean seriously, who uses a cassette player anymore?

Review

I'm very happy with our New Elantra (so far) Just waiting to see how it will handle this winter in the Ice and Snow. With the rising price of gas...I can't complain yet about fuel efficiency..but then again I've had it about four months and have not hit the 1000 mark.


Worst Features

Standard CD Player....Maybe more chrome accents on the exterior

Review

What can I say. The best car in price range. Hyundai has come a long way!


Best Features

Everything, well almost.


Worst Features

Takes bumps in road a little hard. The dash should light up purple for all models just not GT.

Review

I didn't think I'd buy anything but a Honda again. A looming bill for an expensive selective college for my teen made me rethink the equation. So I test drove a Hyundai. It felt like a Honda, had a comfortable interior (I'm 6'2") and for a little over 16G I got the most feature-loaded car I've ever had. The sales experience was also the most low pressured ever and after two months of driving this car I'm thrilled with it. Will probably upgrade to another Hyundai - in four years.


Best Features

Traction control system, ABS brakes, decent CD/AM/FM 6-speaker stereo, keyless entry w/alarm, easy handling and comfortable ride.


Worst Features

Beter basic stereo system, no big deal.

Review

I drive a lot of new vehicles for a large dealearship I work for. I have to say that I enjoy driving my 05 Elantra as much as any of the other new cars and more than most, regardless of price. Sure it's mine, but it's also fun! Ride and handling is impressive, and it feels very solid. I would definitely recommend this car, and have.


Best Features

Fold down split rear seats and places to store small things accessible from the drivers seat.


Worst Features

Maybe a bet more power for passing, but with gas mileage this good (28/35) I'm not complaining to much.
