I love my Elantra!
The only thing that has gone wrong with the car so far since I've owned it, in 18 months, is the radio aux port was faulty; it was not getting a good connection. After 3 visits to the dealership (the first 2, they told me that it was the cord I was using), the third time they replaced the entire radio.
I love my Elantra. It's not a fancy car, but for me and my budget, it suited me very well at the time.
I love the amount of space there is in the front and back seats, even with the front seats all the way back. It can comfortably sit 4 adults. The truck space is fairly generous as well.
I haven't had any complaints at all about my car. The gas mileage was the expected rate. It has good pick up and does well on the highway.
For those that are complaining about road noise; with the less expensive cars, of course they are cheaper and have their downfalls, you get what you pay for, but for a car in this price range (under 20k including taxes and all fees etc), it's an awesome car.
I love it so much that my sister has bought the exact same car, just a 2010 model!
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
