Engine blew out at 34K
By vivient on


2006 Hyundai Elantra GLS 4dr Sedan (2.0L 4cyl 4A)


Very disappointed in the car as well as manufacturer. Car was rarely driven and well maintained. Engine power was significantly pales when compared to a similar Toyota or Honda model. Brake pads do not last at all. Our car's radiator blew out at 34K and damaged the engine. Manufacturer refused to cover repair cost under warranty even though it has not expired, basically has been a big fat lie about warranty.
Will not ever consider the brand again.

Best Features

The price was comparable at the time, but now considering the quality, I would have been better off with a Honda or Toyota.

Worst Features

Customer service was an absolute horror, they hang up on you constantly and took six calls to get a tow service to come. :(
