Runs great, decent mileage, looks nice, plenty of cargo room. My only complaint is that the driver side window stopped working, and needs a whole new internal assembly, a $400 repair. This shouldn't happen on a 6 year old car. However, the car itself is great. It's really like a small SUV, as it sits higher than a Civic, but not quite as high as a Honda CRV. The gas mileage achieved is usually about 26 mpg, not great, but not bad. On longer trips, slightly more than 30 mpg can be achieved. It's worthwhile to note that this car is heavier than the Elantra sedan, which accounts for lower gas mileage. Fantastic car, very happy with it, no issues.
Really like this car

This is not a perfect car but it is a great value for commuting. It has a surprising amount of space for its size, both interior and cargo, and handles pretty well. I wouldn't want to have 4 adults and luggage in there for a long road trip, but packing around the family is no problem. It's a little light on power but I still can maintain highway speed going uphill. So far (~10,000 miles since I've had it, almost 60,000 overall) it has been reliable, no repairs needed. It's reasonably fun to drive and I get 34-35mpg (regular fuel) on the highway. Biggest downside is technology - the radio is bad and the speakers are average at best. No temperature reading (engine, cabin or outside) and no separate controls for anything for passengers.
A Nice Ride

The 2010 Hyundai Elantra is a big ride in a small car with room enough for every passenger. Has enough pep to keep you from being afraid of semi trucks when on the freeway and gets up to traffic speed without much hesitancy.
The dash board instruments are within good reach and the sound system is excellent unless you're the type of person who wants to go without hearing after 45 and you like your car to pound and vibrate as you drive.
I am very happy with the purchase of my 2010 Hyundai Elantra and would recommend this car for anyone in search of something reliable and economical that is fun to drive without the public embarrassment of driving a closed in golf cart.
