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


I purchase an Elantra on June 2.
When I bought it, I had three criteria.
I wanted really good gas mileage.
I wanted a car that was drivable.
And I wanted some cargo capacity.
I had a 2008 Honda Fit.
The Fit got 32 miles to the gallon overall and had a lot of cargo capacity as a hatchback.
The Elantra is very drivable and can accelerate better than the Fit and doesn't have the problems maintaining highway speed.
And the Elantra has really good EPA mpg ratings.
So I thought I could forego the cargo capacity.
Unfortunately the Elantra gets just over 30 mpg on gas with no ethanol.
So I only got one of my three requirements.
I wish I had not purchased the Elantra.

Best Features

Nice interior, runs well

Worst Features

Design the car so it get real world gas mileage close to its EPA rating.
