Would buy another new one, if they still made them!
Intake manifold gasket needed replaced at 100k.
We have 120,000+ miles on the car. I use Mobil 1 in it, and, change the oil regularly (3000 miles). Have had NO appreciable problems w/it! (Except for the NORMAL wear and tear that you would expect from a vehicle w/120k+ miles.
I ALSO own a 2003 Hyundai Elantra (which I JUST love). It's like a tank! Have hit 4 deer with it so far, and, have driven it away EVERY time (usually $2000 damange per).
The ONLY thing that bothers me about the Elantra, is that the FULL SIZED Montana gets WAY BETTER gas mileage than the Elantra.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
