"I've been the sole owner of this 2002 stick-shift Elantra. It's gotten me through Ontario winters since then (Toronto, and now a year in London!) and has had regular maintenance through the years. Some rust on the exterior wheel wells, otherwise she looks pretty good."

Cons: "Cheap plasticy built, road noise, handling."

"3rd owner, clocked around 30K miles in two years. Pros: Extremely reliable. Never got stranded anywhere. Took it on long distance trips (longest was > 1.5K miles), took it on really harsh roads (unmaintained gravel roads in WV, steep inclines, I camp a lot), never had a single problem! Car is good on gas, I never got less than 30 mpg combined. Replacement parts are usually very cheap. Engine feels powerful for the size and price. Cons: Cheap built (front door inside door handle broke, cheap plastic). Lots of other cheap plastic parts. Not very comfortable (and not spacious, specially for some one tall, I am 6ft 2"). MAF sensor needed to be replaced once. Lots of road noise at highway speed. Feels like a boat when cornering, even at moderate speeds. Final verdict: I love this car for its reliability. Its an honest car which does what is expected from it. 130K and still going strong. Everything works as they did when it rolled out of the factory nine years ago."

"I am in TEARS knowing we are selling our 2005 Hyundai Elantra tomorrow. Here's our story. Our Grandaughter moved in with us when she was 2 years old = enough room for the 3 of us in our Elantra. NOW she is 6 years old, in school and has playdates, ect, ect whereas we need a vehicle with more room to transport her friends. I honestly have NOTHING bad to say about our Hyundai Elantra, with the exception of course of not being able to fit 3 booster seats in the back seat. This car has been an absolute pleasure to own! EXCELLENT GAS MILEAGE still averaging 30mpg. Always reliable, every single start! Elantra, you never let us down. We will miss you sooooo much!!!!"
