WOW! What a nice car
By bsmith7859 on


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


I have had it for 2 weeks now and 1000 miles. The car got 37mpg on the highway from the dealership and I'm averaging 32.5 on country roads. The mpg should pick up more as the car gets broke-in. Fun to drive on twisty roads, and from a start it actually takes off well. It is a lite car and on rough roads you get moderate road noise and the bumps are noticable, hey its not a 5000lb caddy, your going to have that. The seats are so comfortable and I love the bluetooth and all the other goodies. Had some snow on the roads and gave me a chance to play with the traction and stabilty control, I would purposely put the car in a slide and the car would quickly straighting itself. I love this car.

Best Features

XM radio, bluetooth, soft and comfortable seats, traction and stabiltty control, heated mirrors. Most windshieds are curved on the sides, and the passenger side wipper never seems to sit flush on the windshield and in the witer ice builds up on the tip of the wipper blade. The elantra has a very large windshield that is nearly flat all the way across, no annoying ice build up. Excellant warrenty. Got a great deal $16999 for a GLS with the perferred option package, it had a msrp of 18480. almost forgot, love the desert bronze color and how the body lines look in different lighting.

Worst Features

Can't think of any right now. Maybe hyudai can buy out GM. Go to bigflats, NY. good deals.

Thanks for the comments about driving in the snow because I was wondering how the Elantra would handle in bad weather. It sounds as if Traction Control really works.
