My wife's Civic died unexpectedly, so we had to replace it. The Elantra had more bang for the buck than Civics, Corollas, Sentras and the domestic rivals. It is supremely comfortable, plenty of amenities, handles well, and is economical. As a bonus, it is very attractive. If you are in the market for an economical and reliable vehicle, don't overlook this gem. You will be pleasantly surprised!
It is a 4 cylinder so it doesn't eat gas crazily, and actually gets stellar gas mileage. Yet, it has an overhead engine, and is therefore capable of climbing to speed insanely quickly for a car of it's caliber. It's beautiful and extremely comfortable for anyone who sits in any seat. It's great for long trips with the best cruise control I've ever had on any car. It can make calls with the Bluetooth (which I adore) and the interior is gorgeous. My only complaint is the exterior white color, but that is easily fixable. Overall, best. Car. Ever.
So far, good.

My first car was a hyundai, never had a problem. Since then I stick with this brand. This particular car, I like the style and size, even though a bit smaller than my previous car, sonata but inside there is not much of a difference. Love the interior style and color. Overall it's a great car, I gave it a 4 because of some cons and the tire looses air frequently than normal. I own this car by only months and the low air tire pressure poped up trice.
