2013 Hyundai ElantraJ S - Bakersfield, CA10/06/2015
The Hyundai Elantra checks all the boxes for a car in its class. Both the exterior and interior look great. Clearly there was intentional effort to increase the esthetics of this car! The interior is comparatively roomly, the handling is very responsive as well as the power being very sufficient. The trunk is also huge, my wife and still remark about its space.
Really like this car
2010 Hyundai ElantraJohn Y - Santa Fe, NM09/23/2015
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.
Good car for the model year at the price
2010 Hyundai ElantraMax Barlow - Prairie Village, KS04/29/2016
This car may not be the best looking or very stylish inside and out, but for a car at its price, it has great safety rating numbers, seatbelts, and a lot of different airbags that make it so (I can attest to the airbag and safety when I had this model before from 2010 until 2014 when it was totaled in an accident. It protected me well). It also gets great gas mileage, has a very roomy, comfortable cabin for its compact sedan size, large trunk space, Great stereo system and speaker volume balance, fog lights, chrome door handles, steering wheel cruise control and stereo system controls, Auxillary plug in for iPod or phone music, charging power jack, cigarette lighter, spare tire with jack and tools, and traction control. Not bad for winter .
