2009 Hyundai Elantra Touring 2.0L from North America
An OK car for the price
Driver's window clunks when going up and down.
Driver's window switch stopped working for all but driver's window.
Passenger window switch completely failed.
Rear tailgate leaks with car wash or really heavy rain.
Lots of clunks and creaks.
I've had this car 6 months, and overall I'd call it OK. Mechanically it's been reliable, it's decent on fuel, and very roomy. It's fairly loaded for almost a base model, with A/C, PW, PL, alarm, heated seats, and USB input. On the highway it revs way too high (over 4000 RPM @ 140kph, 3500 RPM @ 120kph), making quite noisy. On the other side of the coin it handles amazingly and corners well, even at speed.
The window switches have been annoying; the driver's one stopped working on all but the driver's window one at a time, then a week later the passenger window switch stopped working. I've also noticed lots of creaks while driving the car, and the manual shifter makes clunk sounds when shifting.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
