Actually went to the dealer looking for a used car but we test drove this car and were really impressed. The gas mileage is outstanding as well as the trunk space. XM satellite radio is cool as well as the Ipod interface (must puchase the cable from the dealer). All and all it's a great car!!!!

The Elantra SE is a great car. It is wisher quiet at a stop sign and rides very smooth for a car of its size. It is the roomiest "small" car I have ever been in. I average 33 mpg. The worst I have ever had was 27 mpg in winter and best was 39 mpg on a long trip. The driving experience is good, it's not a sports car, but I have never not had enough pep. It is a wonderful value, great construction, good interior design and thousands less than a civic or corolla. Overall I have loved this car and would recommend it to anyone.

I purchased a Elantra SE. I have owned it for approx 6 months now. The only problem I have had is when the dealer installed the sun roof wind deflector they cracked it at one of the mounting screws. They replaced it in 3 days.I use it on the highway approx 70% of the time. The trip computer says that in the 21,000 miles I have driven I have averaged 30.6 MPG.The Leather seats are very comfortable. The car fits a 6'4" driver well. The air works good.

This is the 3rd Hyundai I've owned and the 2nd Elantra. It is the most dependable and low maintenance car I have ever owned. I recently traded a 2008 Accent for the 2009 Elantra only because it had a manual transmission and I prefer an automatic. It is comfortable on long trips and gets great mileage. I expect to trade this one for another Hyundai when the time comes. They are a great value for the price and hold up well.

Purchased our 2009 Elantra in the same year and haven't looked back since. Great gas milage. Comfortable to drive. Comes with all the perks for less money. Had one issue at 20k miles, transmission seal started leaking, (probably caused by one of the huge potholes around town I hit) the dealership nearby happily installed a brand new transmission and it only took them a few hours at most to replace it. I love when replacing a tranny is more cost effective than replacing one of its seals alone. All in all, my family is very happy with our Hyundai Elantra. Over the years my immediate family has owned around 5-6 Hyundais total. Perfect car for anyone concerned about value for your money and reliability.

Happy to be back in a Hyundai

The Elantra is a good car. I am very pleased with this purchase. Plus, gotta love those Hyundai warranties.

We helped our daughter get a '09 Elantra while she was in nursing school. We bought it new and have been VERY pleased with it. She has put lots of miles on it commuting to and from school. Now she's a R.N., married and 60,00 miles later we are buying the car off of her. Great gas mileage, (between 35-38 on the hwy) dependable, comfortable, great warranty and nice looking for a nice price. Pleased and satisfied is an understatement!

I purchased this car brand new. It was my first new car and ever since i got it i have been very pleased with it. It has a very quite and smooth ride to it and it is very roomy to the point where it dose not even seem like it is a compact car but more like a midsize sedan. I work 45 minutes away from where i live so the elantra helps me a lot when it comes to saving money on gas. I also like the features that i got in the car such as XM radio, i pod USB, bluetooth, fog lights and cruise control which i use almost everyday. Ive had a lot of preowned cars so when it was time for me to get something new i had to make the right choice and I'm glad i went with the elantra it is comfortable, spacious, reliable, and has a lot of neat and standard features and it sits at an excellent price and a great warranty.
