Don't Buy!!! Spun Rod Bearing after 6000 miles !!!
By johnrichards on


2011 Hyundai Elantra GLS 4dr Sedan (1.8L 4cyl 6M)


I wish i could write a good review, and would have if i hadn't been stranded on the highway yesterday.
Engine started rattling violently out of nowhere and lost all power.
I was almost rear ended trying to get to the shoulder.
Dealer diagnosed a spun rod bearing !!!
They offered to replace the short block but not the entire engine.
I don't feel safe driving this vehicle any longer ... i guess i'm selling it at a loss.
I'll go back to my beaters that have never left me stranded! (the car was never abused and i never went above 4k rpm).
I guess some things are too good to be true.

Best Features

everything except the engine
