Huge Disappointment

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


I bought this car for one reason: fuel economy. I wanted a car that actually delivers 40 mpg on the highway. Imagine my disappointment that this car actually got 30.45 miles per gallon on a recent 200-mile trip. Tell me I'm a bad driver or whatever, but 30.45 is a far cry from 40. Oh, I'm right around 3,000 miles.

This car replaced a 2003 Saturn L200 that was getting 30-32 mpg mostly in town with some highway mileage. I'm extremely disappointed in this car. Wish I'd read the reviews before buying.

Best Features

This car has very comfortable seats and feels solidly built.

Worst Features

Change the sticker to show what kind of gas mileage the car will actually get. And fix the stereo--mine sounds tinny, and I have the bass turned all the way up.
