This Hyundai is our second. First was a 2000 Accent and find this one much improved. 10/10 is unbeatable and Hyundai took excellant care to meet my needs on the 2000 Accent when things went bad.


Best Features

Looks, performance, quality and mileage


Worst Features

Cruise control would make this one perfect

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


Review

I shop around and corolla was 14k striped , civic 15k striped, sentra 15k moderate equiped and some bad reviews, don't mention the guarranty in any other, service and guarranty in the dealerships nation wide have very good reviews, the cash price was $12,450 and there was $1,500 cash back so I paid $10,950 plus taxes, etc. the only thing you have to do is get a cd player and you have a fully equiped car, whit the best guarranty, at the lowest price. what else can you ask for. I have driven the car for 5000 miles and have been a flawlees experience.


Best Features

all the standard features, price , guarantee


Worst Features

trunk realese in the keyless remote, cd/mp3 player , should be standard even if the cost rise a bit.

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


Review

The car is great. Comfortable, fun to drive and very affordable. But the dealership experience was horrible. I am very happy with this car. Drive this car if you are considering a Civic or Corolla.


Best Features

Styling, leather seats, moonroof


Worst Features

Get rid of the cheesy alloy wheels, better stereo systems

2005 Hyundai Elantra GLS 4dr Hatchback (2.0L 4cyl 4A)


Review

Excellent car, highly recommend to everyone. Only complaint about the car is it only gets 27 MPG on the highway regardless how you drive it. Will buy Hyundai vehicles from now on!

2005 Hyundai Elantra GT SULEV 4dr Sedan (2.0L 4cyl 4A)


Review

This car has a quality feel to it. Very smooth shifting automatic,good pick up and turning circle. Firm comfortable leather seats. Switch gear for climate control and turn signal has the feel of Toyota quality. Windshield washer nozzles spit out 3 streams each.Ice cold A/C. No wind noise on the highway.Sporty handling. Bright brake lights(I can light up the persons face sitting behind me at a stop light) For the weekend mechanic oil filter and spark plugs are easily accessable.

NOW THE BAD: It took 3 trips to 2 different dealships to fix the leaky moonroof. Front and rear passenger seats need to sit higher for more thigh support.Mushy brakes. Overall a great bargain.


Best Features

The blue dashboard lighting is very pleasing to my eyes, but the daytime contrast is a little bit hard to see in the daylight. The handling on this car is very confidence inspiring. 4 air bags.


Worst Features

Change the tin can sounding warning chime when you unbuckle your seatbelt with the engine running. Firm up the feel of the brake peddle. More passenger seating thigh support.
