Customer Review Summary for 2008 Hyundai Elantra

I knew it was out there!

2008 Hyundai Elantra Tara - Columbus, OH 10/19/2010

Due to the number of miles I drive for a job in the field, I was looking for a car that would get me great mileage, at the best value. I found that most reviews of vehicles boasting this feature indicated that the car's actual mileage wasn't near what was advertised. This is not the case with this car! I consistently get 30-33 mpg, driving a combo of city/hwy. The manual transmission gives me the feel of having as much power during exceleration as my previous SUV did, which was a V6. The car drives great, and is comfortable, and I was able to get all of my desired features, which I wouldn't have been able to afford on some of the other brands that aren't rating as high- but are priced higher. I was concerned when switching from an SUV to a sedan that my child would complain of the difference in room in the backseat, but actually, unless I was keeping her in the trunk of the SUV, the Elantra's leg room isn't that much smaller! I've been driving my car for a few months now, and the ONLY thing I've found that I don't care for, which is minor, is a function of the automatic windows. You are not able to control the driver's window when the window's are locked (which mine always are due to small hands that are constantly playing in the backseat). You must unlock the windows to control your own. For the comfort and value, I'll take that "flaw."

great car

2008 Hyundai Elantra Linda - Dewit, VA 04/24/2015

I love the car gets great gas mileage an have not had any trouble at all would like to get a newer one just so I could get blue tooth

great economy car

2008 Hyundai Elantra etendue - Tucson, AZ 02/13/2011

I needed another vehicle, and decided to get an economy car with the most value for the money. This used 08 Elantra has not disappointed. It handles well, is comfortable, and has been perfectly reliable so far. I got it with a manual transmission which I prefer in a small vehicle. The shifting is a little clunky and could be lighter and more precise, but it is not annoying and is enjoyable to drive. Gas mileage is better than stated. It's says 26 in town, but I'm getting 30-33 in start/stop driving. I don't have the mileage yet on the freeway. I would recommend this model to others seeking a high quality economy car that gets good gas mileage, is smooth to drive, and is comfortable. Things I really like: * high quality interior materials * air bags--it's got 10 of them! * great short turn radius * the radio has an AUX jack standard! * feels solidly built and does not rattle * engine revs smoothly and the 2.0 L has plenty of power * Easy to drive and handles well. * Trunk and interior are significantly bigger than they look from outside the car. Everyone is comfortable with plenty of room. Things I'm not so fond of: * front end stability (lightly pulling to the side) and vibration highly depend on good alignment, balancing and high quality tires. I fussed with this, and finally got everything right, and now it's very stable in town or on the freeway with no vibration or pulling.
