1998 Hyundai Elantra Wagon Base 1.8 DOHC from North America
Good bang for the buck
The front brakes went bad at 130,000 miles.
New clutch put in at 110,000 miles.
If one keeps up on the maintenance, aka oil change 3,000 miles, the car will stay in good shape.
Have to tell where red line is (no tachometer), would be helpful because of how hard my car is driven.
Its performance is better than that of Civics.
The handling is a little on the soft side, but it was not made to be a sports car.
I would recommend buying a new Hyundai to anyone on a limited budget.
However I would stay away from used ones, and some people don't know how to take care of cars.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
