1998 Hyundai Elantra Station Wagon 1.8 16V DOC from North America
A great little runabout, solid and reliable
Faulty coolant temperature sensor, causing a high idle, finally fixed by the dealer after three attempts.
Faulty spark plug wires, causing a slight misfire, replaced by the dealer.
All work was done under warranty.
Build quality as good as any of the Japanese auto makers.
The engine loves to rev and makes good power above 3K.
Cheesy cup holders and uncomfortable seats.
It's been a great little runabout, solid and reliable, but the dealer service in my part of the world leaves much to be desired. I'm only grateful I didn't need them for any major repairs.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
