Good, not great!
By zbrian on


2012 Hyundai Elantra GLS 4dr Sedan (1.8L 4cyl 6A)


So I purchased a new 2012 Elantra about 3 months ago. I have put 5,200 miles on the car so I thought it was time to write my review.
The car is really good in some aspects such as exterior styling and smooth ride, but lacks in other areas.
This car is a head turner, as I have had many people compliment or ask questions about it.
The paint quality also seems good.
Overall the car is worth the money (I hope). Overall this model of elantra has not been released long enough to attest to the reliability or longevity.

Best Features

Bluetooth Steering wheel controls Styling Ride

Worst Features

Audio system is a little weak. Headlights are very dim. I can have them on bright and it's as if no one even notices. The seats are somewhat uncomfortable on long trips; there doesn't seem to be enough lumbar support and as a result, ones lower back will be quite stiff when you finally arrive where you are headed. The AC seems to take forever to cool down the car.
