"I bought this car private and so far it hasn't failed me. It has a beautiful black color with a racing spoiler and racing parts. So far it has been very reliable but recently it has been giving me minor problems however it was driven really hard to begin with."

"The 1998 Hyundai elantra is a great car and runs great when taken care of like most cars. After owning the car for some time I got know it better see it in a new light. It might not look pretty and the interior is dull and plain, a few after market accessories makes it a lot better. Also it is very easy to work with when doing replacements and upgrades such as air intake systems and exhaust. There are not much to with an elantra but they are fun can be used as a fun project car. the car produces 130 bhp from a 16 valve 1.8 liter dohc motor that's decent but like stating earlier getting it up past the 200bhp isn't much of a task but even if you care much for going fast it comes in various models and transmission styles. It is a reliable car that takes you to point a to point b which most people now look for in a car. Used in good condition (STOCK) don't pay more than $1,700 but the car will last quite sometime."

"I bought this car new and have loved everything about it. It has been very reliable. I park it outside and it has never once failed to start. This car still has the original battery. Repairs have been minimal.I have keep the oil changed and kept the fluids clean. The only reason I am thinking about letting it go, My friend is in need of a car, and I would like a newer model. I will buy another Elantra. My only reservation is that I WON'T GET ANOTHER CAR SO RELIABLR"

"I've had the car since 2007. Bought it with over 100,000 miles on it. I've put another 170+ thousand miles on it and it is still running. My son even left the oil plug loose one time after changing the oil, and we drove for 10 miles with no oil. It's still going. I just put STP oil treatment (engine honey) and "engine restore" oil treatment every time I change the oil. Up until last year I was getting close to 30 mpg going long distances. Mileage is starting to drop, and my alternator regulator is having problems. Also, one window reg is out. My only real complaint are the seats. If you drive a long ways, it gets pretty uncomfortable."

"I have a 2000 Hyundai Elantra. I am looking to sell it. It is a decent car it has room for 5 passengers a cd player power windows and locks.It drives good it does have some work needed though it has some outer body rust and it has a crack in the front windshield the rear end spoiler is off and it needs some minor work. But overall it is a pretty decent car. I am looking for someone to make me an offer on it as i need something bigger."
