"I originally purchased this car as my first vehicle over 5 years ago. I love this car. In Pennsylvania winters it is fantastic, it has a nice kick to the speed when you are late and decent gas mileage. The only thing I don't like about it is how its value has fallen over the year. To me the car runs like gold, despite its age, but its value doesn't show it! Really is a great car and I hope to have it for even more years."

Time for me to get something new

"This is my second Elantra. Very reliable cars. inexpensive to maintain. Will last for many years with a minimum of care. Safe to drive. I totaled the first one when I hit a tree. I walked away from the accident. Not a luxury car, but a Very good choice for safe, reliable and comfortable transportation"

One of the best cars I have ever owned!

"I bought this car because I had hit a deer and it totaled my other car. I got a car I did not want, I did not like the color and was not sure about the make and model. I took it for a test drive and it drove like a charm. It was a 2 year old car that came from another state. I talked the sails person down as far as he would go then I drove it hone. This little car has been absolutely wonderful, it required the regular maintenance like oil changes etc and tires. I drove it to work at 100 miles a day for 8 years without a tune up. It just did get its first set of spark plugs and wires and the milage is 216874, YES it ran all these years with out a tuneup!! I recommend this car to every one and I would love to own another one. I did for reliability have the timing belt changed after 150000 miles."

"This was my first car, purchased in high school and it is a work horse that I have had for 10 years. I expect to keep it another couple before possibly getting the new elantra or sonata. It does well in snow as well as rain especially for a smaller car. The interior is easy to keep clean and if you maintain it well, it won't let you down."
