Quick, easy to handle and low maintenance
I purchased used and the routine maintenance is all I have had to come out of pocket for.

A very dependable vehicle that I can depend to be comfortable, attractive and reliable.

Pros
Durable, good milage, no worries on long trips.

Cons
I need more storage space. Needs to be deeper, not slanted, and to fit more.

Just stay up on maintenance be nice to her, and she'll will take care of you.
Like the title says. Over 210,000 miles now. No unexpected issues - this to mean when the alternator started to die at 210,000 miles, I was not really surprised it decided to finally give up. Overall, this vehicle just keeps going. I will keep it until such time I am concerned it is about to die.

Pros
Reliable with no unexpected maintenance.

Cons
A lot of plastic on this vehicle. Yes it looks nice, but still, a lot of plastic.

Great Car
This car has been one of the best I have owned. It has required minimal service during 250k miles we have driven it. Hoping to hit 1/2 million on it.

Pros
good fuel economy
Features for its class

Cons
Slightly noisy cabin on hwy.
An extra in of driver leg room would have been perfect, I am 6'3" so most drivers would not find this an issue.
CD player died after 180k miles.

I love my Hyundai Elantra.
I love my Hyundai Elantra. It has given me dependable service for eight years. For a small car it has good performance and speed. I'm on the Interstate a lot and the Hyundai has all the power I ask of it, plus more if I require it.

Pros
Good acceleration for it's size. Dependable.

Cons
Paint problems.

Good car
The Elantra is a well made vehicle that just keeps on going. I have a teenager who really pushes it to the limit. The Elantra takes all of the abuse and hard driving and continues to perform.

LOVE IT!!
Our Elantra is amazing - and when we "need" to get a new car, it's going to be another Elantra! We've already had a 2001 Accent, a 2003 Elantra - as well as currently having a 2008 Sonata - and we will BE sticking with the Hyundai family in the near future!

My Hyundai Elantra.
I love my baby. We've been through thick and thin. Very happy with it.
Would love a newer model, but that's not happening anytime soon. She
is just fine with me. Comfortable. Easy to drive now that she's fixed.

Pros
Reliability and comfort.

I still love my 2008 Elantra SE!
My car is now 7, with almost 79k on it. We've been to Canada, Baltimore, North Carolina, etc. It replaced my 2004 Elantra GLS, that sadly took an impact from two other cars, and no one was hurt. All-in-all, the Elantra is well built, and looks good also. A great car for almost anyone. If you get one, enjoy!

Dependable
I have liked both my 2004 and 2008 Elantras. They have been trustworthy, uncomplicated, and comfortable.

Pros
It is a basic, reliable car that continues to require very little attention. I like that I don't have to worry about special features or customized service. The car works for me and that's the best I can ask for. It starts when I need it to.

I love mine Hyundai Elantra
This is the 1st Hyundai we had, and it far exceed our expectation ! Did follow the Consumer review's recommendation when I was shopping for a new car. And we love this compact car, It has good MPG, smooth ride, plus good power and roomy inside, has giving no trouble for the past 7 years. I would say Hyundai car is the next car we will keep buying when this one get old.

Pros
Very responsive car, has 34 MPG in highway, roomy inside, comfy seat, power everything!

Cons
Has a smaller and tilt Rear window, make back up view smaller and risky.
