Pros: "Very reliable, well-built, good value"

Cons: "Mediocre handling, no ESC in the GLS model"

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

"I purchased my 2008 Elantra GLS in January 2009 for under $15,000. For the price, I expected a good car, but my Elantra has been extremely reliable. It had no "from the factory" defects, and I've had no mechanical problems since then. Other than a minor fender-bender on ice, the only work that's been done to the car has been routine maintenance. The car's not perfect--handling is "meh," and I'm sorry that I allowed the salesperson to convince me not to buy the SE model with Electronic Stability Control, which would have enabled me to avoid the fender-bender."
