2005 Hyundai Elantra VE 2.0 from North America
Piece of scrap metal
Power window motor 2 times.
Rear wheel bearings 4 times.
Radio 2 times.
Window falling into the door 3 times.
Tie rod ends.
Bought the car brand new, and the next day had to bring it back, because the turn signals stopped working.
Rear bearings went 4 times, radio kept shorting out, and the final straw was the trans was skipping out of overdrive on the highway.
That car reminded me of my ex wife; ran off with the mechanic and emptied my bank account.
Spent more than half the time at the garage, and service from the local Hyundai dealer was crap.
I made the mistake of getting rid of my Civic, because it had 259,000 km. Think I should've stuck with a Honda.
The estimate of fixing the car was 6400 for the tranny and front end, so traded for a Chevy, and over 160,000 km later, still no problems.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No
