So so car, don't expect much
By superedmundsf on


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


The only reason I've gotten this vehicle is because my wife trashed our 2007 Toyota Camry SE-V6.
Can't afford the same level of car so we settled on Hyundai Elantra, 09, brand new at the time.
Now, fast forward 70K miles and here are my reviews:

The transmission starts to rattle a bit now as shifting up can be adventurous at times.
Keep in mind I take care of my religiously so it's not a matter of not maintaining it.

Electrical problems starting to surface.
TPMS will show up for no reason.

Overall drive is stoic but comfy.
Performance is ok (typically for a small sedan, don't expect much.)
You get what you pay for, don't be fool by the marketing, adequate car but Civic it isn't.

Best Features

Blue-tooth, Ipod connector

Worst Features

Better interior comfort. Fix the transmission and TPMS issues (seems to be common to many people.)
