2012 Hyundai ElantraPatrick R - Wichita, KS06/03/2016
I bought this car three years ago and it's been a great change from my '91 Buick Century. I considered other compacts but landed on the Hyundai for its gas mileage, low cost of maintenance, great manufacturer's warranty and modern styling. It has nice amenities for even the basic trim and gets good gas mileage (not as advertised by still superior) for the class. I've done regular maintenance every 3k miles and only had one issue so far that was taken care of by the manufacturer. If you're looking for a commuter vehicle or just a daily driver this is a great vehicle. The space is great for the compact class as well, I play in a band and can move all of my equipment in the backseat/trunk with a passenger very comfortably.
It's a great car for a good price. It gets awesome gas mileage and it's super comfortable for car rides. I find it really spacious on the inside, lots of trunk space. I've had a little trouble with the USB port, but usually restarting my phone fixes that. Some people online have complained about cabin noise, but I don't see it being any noisier than any other comparable sedan. It has a very smooth ride. Altogether I've really enjoyed my car so far.

2012 Hyundai ElantraJohn Gayhart - San Diego, CA05/14/2016
In a roll over accident of 70 yards down an embankment more than 10flips over boulders this car not only held up but I believe kept me alive.you should see the pictures of the place where I went off the road and the final condition of the car no one should have ever been able to survive a wreck like that but I not only survived but walked away with only a hurt shoulder from how violently I was tossed in the seat belt. No other marks on me the passenger compartment was completely intact. Where most other cars " I believe " would have folded like a lawn chair.
