Great price, poor car quality, having alot of issu

I'm hving alot of problems with the brakes on the car, when you run the air the car shakes real bad, I have had the car 6 months, & it's a 2013, it's a light weight car, I'm not happy at all, it makes weird noises when you move the gears, & if you hit like a bump the car totally slides to the opposite side,


  • Fuel Economy: Good on gas

- Tina Neal, 2013 Hyundai Elantra

Best Car you could ever get!

It’s extremely practical and wonderful in gas mileage, especially with how small yet versatile it is! Even being an older car it has wonderful amenities like seat warmers and different drive modes! The only con I could ever think of would be that I can’t lift or lower the seats but again, older con so it’s not at all terrible!


  • Ride and Handling: I love driving fast, and I mean fast and this car will make sure that happens. I race competitively (in legal stances however), and this car makes sure that I’m always among the first.
  • Fuel Economy: It’s perfect for how often I have to drive!
  • Reliability: I will never be worried about this car.


  • Seat Comfort: Again, just that you can raise or lower the seats.

- Katelyn Willias, 2013 Hyundai Elantra

Good Car with some caveats

Purchased the car about 4 months ago, my 3rd car from Carmax and dealing with Carmax is a pleasure and would recommend them (and have) to others. The Elantra has been what you would expect, solid car, decent driving but some items to be aware of. 1.Car idles rough after it warms up. This is discussed in other posting and may be related to some carbon deposits in the throttle body. Have not had it addressed yet so I don't know if that is the issue or just a characteristic of the design. Others we test drove did not display this. 2. Most important in my mind is it came with Kumhos tires and within 3000 miles developed a severe sidewall bulge. These are lousy tires and frankly unsafe. Replaced all 4.
