Good work car

by Bus Driver from Phoenix, AZ on Mon Mar 05 2007

Had some trouble with water pumps. May have been rebuilt pumps the mechanic was using. He tried something else this time. Car has plenty of pep. Gets 27 MPG most of the time at 40-45 MPH.

Loved this car for 20 years

by Admingoddess from Downey, CA on Sun Feb 11 2018

I enjoyed driving this car for 20 years. It only stranded me twice in those 20 years. It's been very reliable, dependable and easy to take care of. With regular maintanence, this car give more more than 270000 miles.

Reliable, Excellent value, good performance.

by Lenny from Boston, MA on Sun Jun 03 2018

Car met all my needs. Very good maintenance scores. I owned it for nineteen years, and hardly had any problems. The station wagon is especially good for transporting big items.

Our Take on the 1998 Hyundai Elantra

Of course, little wagons can't swallow as much cargo as sport-utility vehicles or minivans, but they hold more than a small sedan and get good gas mileage. They cost less, too.

Hyundai's decision to offer a wagon version of its Elantra is based on just these assumptions. It joins the Ford Escort, Mercury Tracer, Suzuki Esteem and Saturn wagon as the only small wagons available.
