2007 Hyundai Elantra Limited 2.0L from North America
Great Car Great Value
Nothing has gone wrong with this car.
We put Militech-1 in the engine and it seems to get better mileage.
We purchased this car to flat tow behind our motorhome, but now we use it for our everyday driving and are considering getting rid of our Honda.
The best feature on this car is the statistics computer. We keep it on the MPG and have determined the hows and whys to getting good MPG. We get 33mpg easy.
The car is so quite sometimes I try starting it when it is already on... The seats are comfortable it shifts like a dream (manual) good visibility.
Wish it could have had a day/night rear view mirror and vehicle stability control, but the 08 now has it and tire pressure monitoring to boot.
And to think we almost got a noisy and expensive CRV.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

Don't know how long you'll have this one, but enjoy it while it still brand new. Take a close look and you will see that ten years old or older Hyundai are not common, yes there are, but not like toyota or honda, enjoy!
Believe it or not, I've seen 1994 Hyundai Elantra cars on the road today here in New York State. More so than any other Hyundai manufactured back then. Sure I've seen a couple of older Excel cars around, but the Elantra dominates! I currently own a 2006 Hyundai Elantra and I plan on keeping it at least 10 years. Word on the street is that 2000 Hyundai Elantra models are worth $3,000 with over 100,000 miles! I like those odds and my car will be worth more because gas will be $10.50 a gallon in 8 years. Enjoy your Honda!
PLEASE, Honda, Honda, Honda. It continues to be a perennial favorite with the car magazines - big deal. Like Honda, Hyundai is all about value, but at a much lower cost. Anymore, these cars are practically bullet-proof, and carry hefty discounts at model year end. They are stylish without being offensive (yeah, check out that Birkenstock-inspired two-tired instrument cluster on the Civic), and carry an extensive warranty to boot. I live in Southeastern Virginia in a densely populated area, and Elantra's are everywhere. You can't beat the standard safety equipment, roominess of a midsize car, and gas mileage for the price. We have 3 new Hyundai's in our family (Tiburon, Elantra, Accent) as well as 2 new Kia's (Optima and Rondo) - and all are loaded up with options. I love it when a Honda person check's out our vehicles. Snubbing them under my breath, I laugh knowing that we saved several thousand dollars combined instead of purchasing one of their vehicles. The times, they are a changin'...
Yeah, yeah... middle class Americans are discovering the fabulousness of frugality. They all would buy German cars, but that is no longer within their reach, not even on a long loan. Well there's nothing wrong with frugality, even if it is forced.
