"This car is very reliable, but it lacks power! I had a 1995 mazda mx6 that was a manual like my hyundai elantra which is a 2003, and it had much more power than this car."

"This car was so reliable it was unbelievable. Sun, rain, ice or snow this car got me from point "A" to point "B" and back without a problem. The only shop time this vehicle ever saw was for general scheduled upkeep as per the owners manual. other than this vehicle being to small for my needs now, I would keep this car and drive it until it dies."

"This car has driven me across country twice from Virginia to Wyoming and back. It has driven through mountains, plains, in snow, hail, strong hurricane like winds and it is still going. Amazing and completely reliable and yes I am going to be buying another. Why spend a fortune on a big brand name vehicle when you can spend half of that and still get to where you need to go. I love it."

Pros: "Gas mileage, low maintenance, reliable"

Cons: "Road noise"

Likely to recommend this car? (1-10): 9

"We purchased our 2004 Elantra used in 2007, and have put nearly 60k miles on it since. It's been a great commuter car, gas mileage with careful driving running more like 33mpg. Handles well, almost sporty, with good pickup and smooth running up to about 85 mph. We've done the recommended maintenance - fluids, filters, belts - and it still runs like the day we bought it. Only negative is the amount of road noise at highway speeds, but comparable to other cars in the same class. Definitely recommend Hyundai and would buy again."
