Has been a great car, bought used with 35k miles

2008 Hyundai Elantra GLS PZEV 4dr Sedan (2.0L 4cyl 4A)


This car is a well-built machine. Solid, fun to drive, reliable, modest (well, very modest on gas), A/C and heat are great.
I bought the car used from a dealership in 2011, with 35,000 miles. My jeep completely had died and I was desperate. But since then, (it is now May 2014).. no problems. None. I've driven long-distance, I commute to work Mon-Fri, and also worked weekends carrying people and 100s of pounds of equipment up to 2 hours away. In all weather, the car did great. This past winter, the battery finally went. 2 degrees F will do that to a battery! Took the car to Sears Auto..new battery...back to normal!
If you think you are "settling" for a Hyundai...think again. Test drive one.

Best Features

Gas efficient, peppy, smooth, nice-looking, roomy (back-seat too), seats in front are comfy, sturdy, big trunk, cloth seats are pretty stain-resistant, handles well in all weather (snow included)car is reliable and just a good car overall

Worst Features

Another reviewer was right about the doors slamming..but you get used to it. Pick-up (acceleration) is not the best, but I drive in NJ, and the car keeps up with traffic flow. Trunk drainage in rain isn't too pleasant. I also suggest more people learn how to drive in snow. The FWD will handle the snow, but may get overwhelmed in a LOT of accumulation.
