UNBELIEVABLE AMOUNT OF CAR FOR THE MONEY!!!

Probably the most car you can get for the money spent. By the time your ready to buy another car this one is still under bumper to bumper dealer warranty!! The GT has the added bonus of better performance and enormous cargo capacity with the hatchback (it's like a mini-stationwagon). The GT also has more appeal and resale value.

i get about 37 miles per gallon at 60-70 mph. it handles great on asphalt and on gravel/dirt. I drive about 85-100 miles a day for work and personally things as well. I am a big guy and the comfort is an issue, i have to put the drivers seat all the way back so my knee dosent touch the dash, but that leaves no room for anybody behind me... The car is perfest for my wife, 2 kids and I...

Excellant car for the money. I have 195,000 mils on the car and it is still runnig great. Very little ever went wrong with the car during the past 10 years. The engine is strong and just keepss running. My only negative is the paint is poor, and fading. I have noticed that on many Hyundais of that age period. Otherwise very good car for the money.

113,000 miles and still going strong

by from Tucson, Arizona on August 1, 2006

In 2 years I put over 100,000 miles on this car and I love it. In all those miles it only had one issue and it was with a hose clamp. I highly recommend these cars!

My previous car was a used 00 Pontiac Grand Prix which was an OK car. So when it hit 95,000 miles I decided to trade it in. I was originally looking at Hondas but they were out of my price range and thats when I decided to go with a different economy car make. I saw the 03 Hyundia Elantra and I thought it lookd nice right off the bat. It had 40,000 miles on it and they wanted 7 grand, my mechaic told me it was in great shape and that I should consider buying it befor someone else did. It's been 30,000 miles and I haven't had a single problem. It has a 5-speed manual and with the stick it is surprisingly fast, my dad had to teach me to drive stick and even he mentioned how quick it was for a car with only 135 horse power. It took me 2 days to learn how to drive this car well thats how smooth and easy the stick is. If you see one of these on a lot I would take it for a test drive. The interior is plain yet very nice and good looking with plenty of room for 5 adults, I'm 6'1 and still have 2 inches of head room to spare.I average 26 miles city and 34 highway.
