2009 Hyundai Elantra SE 4dr Sedan (2.0L 4cyl 4A)


Review

So far, so good. For those shopping for a good, reliable, relatively inexpensive commuter vehicle, this may in fact be the one. You're not buying prestige but rather "bang for the buck". Hyundai truly has packed alot of punch into this car for the pricepoint. Many standard safety features too numerous to list. Comfortable ride. Decent gas mileage (getting about 34 on the hwy after 5,000 miles break-in). Slushbox trans works the way it's supposed to - trouble free. Start 'er up, put 'er in drive and away you go. Trouble free transportation. With Cash for Clunkers program, after all the smoke, paid under $11k for this '09 Elantra SE. Truly remarkable. Give this company a serious look!


Best Features

Price, price, price (i.e. VALUE across the board). Nice interior. Decent handling for highway commuting. Excellent sound system. ESC safety feature STANDARD. Rock solid proven engine (2.0 Beta engine).


Worst Features

Wish the driver seat was like the leather one in my '05 Elantra GT hatchback. That seat could be adjusted every which-away. This one not so. That "booming" when punching gas pedal could be addressed in future models. Since the XM is cranked don't hear it much but it is there if radio is off.

Review

I just bought my Hyundai, and I have no complaints! Its performance is amazing compared to my old mazda, and you can't beat the price, 12,000. If anyone is looking into the Hyundai Elantra, you should really consider it!


Best Features

3 free months of XM Warranty is fantastic the exterior/ Interior performance Safety features ( This car is a tank!) Tires they put on it are the best!


Worst Features

Nothing comes to mind!

2009 Hyundai Elantra GLS 4dr Sedan (2.0L 4cyl 5M)


Review

My wife and i love this car. The lack of road noise is fantastic and ads to the use of the blue tooth phone on board this fun to drive vehicle. The back seats fold down individually permitting you to haul long items while still seating somebody in the back seat. We drove many vehicles before buying this one, and for the money nothing comes close to this car for value. It not only has an Aux port for ipods or other music players, but it also has a USB port for flash drives and other usb devices. The Cabin on this car is very quiet and comfortable.


Best Features

Blue tooth phone, very quiet interior. several entertainment options.


Worst Features

mud flaps need to be standard on all the models.

Review

I bought this car for my daughter and she fell in love with it. She loves the blue light interior and the way it handles. The price was awesome. Paid 14K for it. Very impressed. I was worried about engine noise, but after driving it, it wasn't that bad. So no complaints. Had to decide between the Corolla S and Hyundai. Went with Hyundai based on price and features. We get 3 months of XM. Toyota doesn't offer that. A lot more amenities that a kid could like at that age.


Best Features

Color light interior. Price


Worst Features

Nothing so far.
