I typically am not one to write reviews but I am so impressed by my Elantra I had to. I purchased a used 2014 Elantra base model last October after having a hard time letting go of my tiny sports car. The comfort is excellent. There is little road noise. Drives smooth. And is sporty enough to not make me feel like I'm driving a "mom car". What has impressed me most however... Tonight I was rear-ended by someone going between 40-50mph. Other than two small indentations from the persons front license plate the car looks good as new. I was not injured, other than some stiffness and was completely impressed with how the car both held up and protected me.

More Than I Need

Took my 2002 Sonata to get it inspected (bought used). Because of the problems that they found, I ended up purchasing a 2014 Elantra. I have had this car for 4 months. I fly every week, so have experienced quite a few different autos, including the 2013 & 2014 Sonata's. When I test drove the Elantra, I noticed that it had many of the Sonata features I was used to. It also had heated seats (a strong plus for my wife (we live in Pa)). The back up camera is a nice addition, as well. I tried the Accent, but found that I missed the features that were in the Elantra. I test drove the Sonata, and found that it was not as pleasant as the Elantra. I am thoroughly pleased with this car, and would highly recommend the 2014 version. I have heard that they've taken out the heated seats in the 2015. A mistake, in my opinion.

Enjoying the ride

by from on February 27, 2016

This has been a very safe and reliable car. I use it for commuting and long distance trips. Gas use is a bit better than average.

I upgraded to the GLS with sunroof, alloys and a couple of other little add - ons, but I wish I had gone one step further to get an engine upgrade. There are lots of things I like about the car - it feels safe(like a big car), the interior, the mileage is acceptable. However, I would return this car tomorrow if I could. The engine absolutely dies on the smallest of inclines. Its very loud and unresponsive - I am still somewhat weary of accelerating to pass on the highway and even changing lanes in the city because of it's lack of responsiveness. Very surprising and even more disappointing. Unfortunately I still have years to pay on this vehicle. I agree with the posting of an earlier reviewer - rent before you buy.

This is my third Hyundai. Just traded in my 06 Sonata for the Elantra. Very comfortable and gets great mileage in the city and on the highway. Very happy with the warranty it comes with. Has free roadside assistance for 5 years! Easy to park and has many conveniences you wouldn't expect in a small car. Feels roomy inside for it's size also. Great fit and finish.

Our Elantra is a base model w/automatic trans. Bought it new in June of 2014 and has over 16,000 miles already. Runs great, gets better than advertised MPG, well equipted and is very comfortable. Only compliant so far is the paint. Front bumper cover is turning dull and the paint on the hood chips quite easily. This is our second Elantra, the first was a 2000 and was a very good car, except for the paint.

I purchased my 2014 Hyundai elantra earlier this year. My sister had one and i fell in love with the exterior style of it. I made a rushed decision and I am some what disappointed with the purchase. Ron Carter did an amazing job working with me but the car overall I feel is a little cheaply made. Recently the buttons have randomly stopped working correctly, ex. I go to change the station and changes the volume instead or I go to turn the radio up and it turns it down instead. Some times when I am coming to a stop it starts kind of shaking/ feeling bumpy like its going to shut off. The rearview camera is of horrible quality and the defrost doesn't seem to do its job. Also I am 5'7" and I feel its a hassle getting in and out of the car because it is pretty small...I havent quite measured it but I feel like the gas doesn't last me at all...don't know if its just my car or if others have experienced this..I will fill up my car and literally 2 days later im at half tank and I wouldn't say I drive around to much..

I have been buying and driving cars for over 40 years. This car looks great and is comfortable. Excellent on gas and roomy (once I get my 6' 2" body in side). I love all the features and get it rust checked as I plan on keeping it 10 or more years. We have no regrets in our first year, as a matter of fact it is a better car than expected!

I am die hard Ford car owner but this car has changed my mind of owner something other, this car drives smooth and handles like a dream I have had my car for 3 days now and I'm very happy with it so far I am kind of disappointed that the sound system is not as high quality as the car and my tachometer is not digital my 2014 Ford Focus had all this if this car are all of that then I would be over the top with this car but you take some you give some I guess...
