Review

paint on my 17 Elantra started to peel at less then a year old and now more panels are peelin at less then being 2 years old. Hyundai refuses to repair my defect because of being past my 36000 miles. Would not recommend purchasing a Hyundai product.

Review

The internet's full of car reviews - especially on the Elantra. Many may be found on Youtube. Many, if not most, of those are paid shills for cars companies, car dealers, and the like. If they're not getting cash, then they're getting other perks and goodies. Most of those guys will tell you - and sell you - two things: how a car looks, and how it drives. What these honchos won't tell you are all of the potential problems that a vehicle may have - even when those issues are well known. When was the last time you saw a review that said, "Yeehaw! This baby is sharp, fast, and handles like a dream. But, hell, this generation of the car burns oil like a smoke stack, needs the head gasket replaced by about 70 thousand miles or so; has lots of transmission failure; and if you get a sun roof, sooner or later, it's going to leak all over the place...". In the case of the Elantra, nobody, but nobody, has bothered to noticed how narrow the side windows are. Tank gun turret narrow. Indeed, the front and especially the rear windshields are pretty narrow as well. As a result, it's basement-interior dark inside. Additionally, the rear pillars are fairly wide. And, of course, as on all new cars, the head rests are freakishly huge, and jut your hard head forward so much that your spine will be permanently rounded. All of these things add up to a dark, claustrophobic interior with markedly poor visibility. You have almost zero chance of seeing anything over your left shoulder. Better get blind spot monitoring if you're seriously considering this car. But, that technology depends on a camera, and how well will that work during a big snow? Yeah, when you need it most, it'll be OTL. Oh well, put all of that out of your mind - and focus on the really important things you'll spend your hard-earned Kopecs on - stuff such as the infotainment screen size and Apple Car Play. Yeehaw.

Review

I like the car however disappointed that the Premium Package is the same price for the Automatic as the Manual yet on the Manual you don't get the remote start and you don't get a discount!

Review

I bought this 2017 Hyundai Elantra SE with the popular equipment package. I have owned this car for almost two years, and love the 100,000 mile power train warranty. Other things i love about this car is it has apple car play, which i use extensively! One thing i find annoying about this car is its 2.0l Atkinson cycle engine doesn't have good low end torque at the bottom of the rev range. I have to get the rpms around 3-4,500 to use the torque. One thing that offsets this annoyance is the sport mode feature. I use this mode when i want more get up and go. For instance passing and merging on the highway is so much easier with sport mode. i don't use eco mode that often, since I don't think it makes much of a difference in my fuel economy. I really want the Elantra Sport due to it having more torque and horsepower. Overall, i enjoy owning my 2017 Hyundai Elanta.
