2006 Hyundai Elantra GLS 2.0 from North America
Poor quality, give Hyundai a few more years
Steering wheel vibration when brand new, headlights aimed too low when new, recently clutch beginning to slip.
Nice car, good size, good features, but quality has been poor. Recently, the clutch has begun to slip (at only 35,000 miles). I have been driving manuals for 12 years and have never had any problems.
Dealer and Hyundai 1-800 number refuse to help, and say it's wear and tear.
I now know Hyundai is unfortunately nowhere near up to the levels of Honda/Toyota.
You may save $2,000-$3,000 on the intial purchase price, but in the long run, the Honda/Toyota will be a better value.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No

I have driven a stick since 1986, last two cars I owned still had the original clutch in them, so how come my 2007 with 59k miles is shot to pieces? You cannot grease the part that broke for preventive maintenance on it, because it is enclosed, so why isn't it not covered on the warranty, 10 years / 100,000 k miles. Because they said so, that's why. Good luck to you, since you "know" how to drive one.
