1999 Hyundai Elantra from North America
Best car I have EVER owned!
The front driver's side regulator went.
Both back window regulators went.
Front left strut broke (after my son nailed a curb with it) LOL.
That is honestly ALL that is not of regular maintenance that has gone awry with this car. I think this is one of the most reliable cars I have EVER had!
My son and I have both owned this car since 2005. It is without a doubt the most reliable car I have EVER had. Knock wood, I haven't had any real problems with anything but the window regulators. Everything else that had to be dealt with was self inflicted... LOL. I personally change his oil every 3,000 miles. I use Fram filters and 5/30 Valvoline oil all year round. He uses about a quart of oil every 750 miles. Nothing for a car of this age. He doesn't burn it. I have no idea where it's going because there is no leak. I put the bolt on tight enough to stop any leak.
It kicks butt pulling out into highway traffic, getting up to 80mph very quickly. Right now the muffler is going, but jeez at 154k+ miles it should be by now!
The car handles quickly, its suspension is tight and responsive. I try not to bang gears, but it's so quick it's easy to... LOL.
I really love this car. I see the new ones and they are like YUCK!
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
