Used 2009 Hyundai Elantra Touring for Sale
Reviews for 2009 Hyundai Elantra
Happy with Elantra
I got exactly what I was looking for with the Elantra and am grateful to Carmax for listening to my needs and requirements (unlike the traditional car dealership I went to first which was a frustrating experience). I wanted a well built car with great safety features and exceptional gas mileage without the expense of a hybrid. I also wanted a great price. After driving the car alot for two weeks, I finally had to fill up the tank. Though the car is listed as 25 mpg city and 33 mpg highway, my combo city & highway driving gave 36.63 mpg! I'm amazed. There are many times it seems like the gas gauge doesn't even move during a trip. The car is beautiful on the outside and looks nicer than most equivalent competitor models. The interior is very basic though it does have XM radio and iPhone plug in. I wish the interior was more beautiful but I'm not complaining - this was the trade-off for the price plus everything works well and is easy to find and use. This is my first Hyundai and if it continues to perform well, I'll eventually trade this one in for a newer Hyundai model instead of the expensive to maintain European luxury cars that I've had in the past. I'm very happy with the Elantra and Carmax and look forward to doing business with both companies again.
The vehicle is great on gas! It looks pretty slick as well.
Lovin my Lantra
I purchased this '09 SE with the upgrade package. I traded a mid-size V6, and the difference in the heaviness, feel, and responsiveness were quite noticeable at first. It didn't take long, however, for me to fall completely in love with my Elantra. The biggest selling point for me was the gas savings. My previous sedan had a 17 gallon tank and got between 16-18 mpg. My Elantra has a much smaller tank and I average 35 mpg. What I save in gas eases my already low car note. Because I have some upgrades, I can enjoy the creatures comforts of a higher end car without the price. The heated seats are wonderful and so are the Blue Tooth capability and the Electronic Stability Control. I prefer a manual transmission, so having one, on top of the other perks, is like icing on the cake.
This price does not include tax, title, and tags. Additional fees may also apply depending on the state of purchase.
