Paint effect

After getting this car ,there was no paint chipping and after 2 months thats when i see the fisrt sign of it and its getting wrost. Beside that its a great car.



Electrical problems just to name a few ...the lights kept going in and out then wouldn't start Hyundai dealer said buy a charger and use that to start car assured me it was safe to drive until they could check it out in 2 months well it wasn't so safe the car. One night while driving all the lights started flashing again I couldn't see to pull over before I knew it I was in a ditch. Hyundai usa and the dealer knew about the problem and told me it was perfectly safe to drive putting my life in danger. They have done nothing. Beware of electrical problems. Don't let them fool you into thinking it is safe. It's not


CV 2017 Hyundai Elantra Limited ..10/5/22

Design / Style is for an individuals taste. Exterior: i do like the style / lines. Interior: the layout of controls is good. It's easy to get to various screens & displays. My only (2) negative things... The gas mileage I'm getting (35-38 mpg) of this 2017 has declined 3-4 mpg (from my former 2013 Hyundai Elantra Limited which averaged between 38-41). My mechanic also informed me as these Hyundai's age they start to burn (a little) oil -Proven as I have no drips in my garage but was down 1/2 quart at (several oil changes ago) -now using a heavier oil to compensate. Those (2) things are the only negatives (from me). The Android Auto feature I use all the time: Driving Directions from the [App] on my phone, making/ receiving calls & texts...all by voice command. The Air Conditioning & Heating is fantastic with the separate control. The Front Seat Heating is wonderful (quickly heats up when needed). The 60 / 40 Rear Seat Split (fold down) is great -easy to access the pull knob in trunk. BSD (Blind Spot Detection) is a wonderful safety feature; you know when someone is approaching & alerts so you will not change lanes. Backing up Detection/ Alert is great in parking lots. The camera & the alarm are great when backing up, as many people have no regard for cars backing out (they just keep walking & expect you to yield to them). I'm presently looking into buying a new 2023. My overall rating for this car (from 2017 to present 10/5/22) is an 8 / 10.


Elantra Review

It is awful in the snow. I have had problems with my front drivers door not opening. Had to have it repaired. Needed a new door latch. Now my back drivers door won’t open. The car keeps bucking.


Not very reliable…

So I bought this car in the spring of 2019 used with about 40k miles on it. The silver lining in the interior dashboard is already cracking and peeling off, both of my front struts had to be replaced, and also had to replace the spark plugs and coils. It’s almost like everytime you turn around and fix one thing on this xxxx car, another thing breaks! My front driver door, and back passenger door doesn’t open immediately, you have to play with the handles to get the xxxx thing open. It’s very tedious, and if you’re looking for a reliable used car, try a different make and model.


2017 Hyundai Elantra Is One Awesome Car

As a former GM owners we went into buying our next used car with an open mind. I knew Hyundais were known for their reliability and overall value, but until we took this car for a test drive, we weren't really aware of how good theses cars got. It's quiet rides real well gets great mileage...around 42-46 on the highway, mid 30's around town, and being the value edition, it has a ton of features including, keyless entry, DRL, pwr driver seat, pwr windows, locks and mirrors, carplay, heated mirrors, auto dim mirror inside, heated front seats. I could go on and on but this car is great and looks great too. We bought it used a year ago with just under 38000 miles. the bottom line is when looking at used cars check out the Elantra. You won't be disappointed.


2017 Hyundai elantra se

Review about 2017 Hyundai elantra se.. The car would be a great first car for someone. It has basic features for a car. Auto windows, manual seats. Nothing too fancy by all means. Mine is a phantom black with a little sparkle on the exterior and a light gray on the interior. It does have xm radio but that's the only feature that isn't basic. I have only had this car for a little over a year and my Crank-shaft sensor is already going out so it's running really rough and it dies at random times.


Good car

I purchased my vehicle new in the summer of 2017. It now has 75k miles on it. It has been very reliable. It still gets great gas mileage (40+) on the highway. Around town is good, too. My wife currently has a 2020 Camry rental. I think the Elantra has a better ride and is more comfortable. I would buy the vehicle again.


Go to recalls and, see if any recalls to you car.

I am a answer searcher. I found some answers for the passenger driver side door. I called VSH and, filed a complaint against them. I had told them that my daughter had a baby and, what if she is in a accident. On the passenger side. How is she going to get my grandson out? They have given me some advice to do. I have to call the company, if that don't work to call Fed Trade Commission. I am going to call them tomorrow. This is really a safety issue, and hazard.


Buyer beware

Paint on the roof is coming off in big pieces it's burning oil like it's a 20 year old car I've had it in for two recalls so far and now my mechanic can't figure out what's wrong with it because it just turns itself off very disappointed in this car.
