Pros: "Mechanically holding up well"

Cons: "Interior, exterior quality is lacking"

Likely to recommend this car? (1-10): 4

"This car has been solid mechanically. However, it lacks comfortable seating and things in the interior break rather easily. The door handles peeled leaving sharp edges that cut my son. I just peeled all the silver off instead of investing in new handles. Covers in the corner of the windows have fallen off. Small things like that have happened on this car that I never experienced when I owned other vehicles. The car shimmies when I go over 60. I have had everything checked. Apparently this car isn't designed to cruise well on the interstate. But it is a good basic car if you are budget conscious."

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."
