The car is small, yet big. It is a comfortable car on long trips and surprisingly it holds alot of luggage, bags and whatever else you want to bring home from vacation. Fuel economy on this car has been great. I drive a mix of highway and city and I have been getting between 29 and 31mpg, On trips, I have been getting 34.5mpg. It is fun to pull in to the gas station, fill up and leave, while the SUV guy is waiting and waiting and waiting to hit the full mark.
The one touch moonroof and the heated mirrors. I have been in more expensive cars and you need to keep your finger on the button to open the moonroof and the heated mirrors are an option.
1) A remote button to open the trunk would be nice 2)CD Changer instead of single slot CD and 3)Daytime Running Lights should be a standard feature
I traded in my 2003 Elantra for the 2005 Elantra GT, four door. The GT is well worth it. I like the leather seats but think they should be heated. The car is comfortable on the road and in town. On the road it rides like a much larger sized car. It takes curves like a sports car. Its roomy and well laid out on the inside. I've added HID headlights, a Wheelskins leather steering wheel cover and an exterior temperature monitor.
Power sun roof. Snappy engine. Nice looking wheels.
Heat for the leather seats. Exterior temperature gage. Beef up the floor covering over the spare tire in the trunk.
I got my 05 Elantra last month, and have put over 700 miles on it. It is a great car-much better than any of its competitors. Purchase price was $11,600, and it is the best value for the money. It has a peppy engine that has a nice growl, and handling is similar to a Jetta. Its very agile around tight corners, and really holds well to the road. I would strongly suggest this car, and think the world of the great warranty!
A/C and Heat are awesome..and they work fast. All features work well, and the CD stereo system is above average. Comfort is also outstanding.
I would like a trunk release on the keyless entry system.
