2013 Hyundai ElantraJudy Wells - San Diego, CA08/22/2016
It has so much pep. It's just a 6-cylinder, but it has great acceleration, and the mileage is really good. I was driving an Xterra before, and I thought it was a good car, but this beats it all to heck. There's plenty of room for passengers in the back, the trunk is big enough to put several boxes or suitcases, etc. And the price was so reasonable, my payment is really low. Love this car!
I'm so happy about my car choice. I love that the Elantra looks sporty but is four doors. It feels like an almost-luxury car but at an affordable price. Running smooth even in the cold winters. Love, love, love!!! Definitely suggest springing for the heated seats- worth an upgrade!
Solid commuter vehicle.
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.
