"I had this for a company car for 2 years. It had 100k miles on it when I took it over. I racked another 154k onto it. Only oil changes. No other manufacturer maintenance. Aside from rear shock breakdown which led to rear tires cupping prematurely, due to continuously having 60-70lbs of equipment in the trunk, this car was flawless. I had no other issues or breakdowns. Interior noise is a little high, the driver seat was getting a little uncomfortable due to the high mileage but otherwise everything else on this car was incredible. I'd have never chosen a Hyundai previously but this car changed my mind. Great vehicle."

"I have taken good care of the car and it has taken care of me. Reliable, low cost of ownership and it still looks good and runs like new after 125000.00 miles. I'm still getting my money's worth. Used it for business for a couple years and now use it in retirement."

"Hi there, I was checking the value of my elantra online and thought I'd leave a review. I purchased my 2008 Hyundai Elantra with 31k on the clock in 2011. It was a previous rent-a-car but I wasn't too scared, I needed a reliable, fuel efficient vehicle in a pinch. I paid too much, 13k. Now let me tell you, I've done nothing but consumables (brakes, tires, wipers, batteries, and oil changes between 4k-10k miles apart. Rarely was I not at full throttle or taking it through fields or hopping curbs and whatnot. This car refused to complain, breakdown, anything. I didn't do the timing belt (recommended at 60k), or any other fluid flushes (oil only). The motor finally broke (spun a bearing and a broken rod or something like that) Guess what, used motor with 51k for $600, $800 labor including fluids, timing belt, etc. to install and I expect to be back on the road this Friday. The car cleans up pretty well too. It's not a prestigious vehicle but I've been pretty darn lucky and can't wait to get another 180k+ out of this motor. Wish me luck. Oh, the interior plastic bits haven't held up too well, the knick knack holder above the radio stays open, the sunglasses holder drops down randomly, and passenger side sunvisor doesn't like to stay put but there's a good chance that my abuse and the Florida sun didn't help them either. Have a great day!!!"
