My 1989 Honda drives better than my 2015 Elantra

On this car we’ve had to replace catalytic converter, fuel injector system, and it STILL is not running above 40 miles an hour. We think it’s the new catalytic converter somehow. Communicating with the company has been arduous and almost fruitless. I’m driving a 1989 Honda Civic and it runs better than my 5 year old Elantra. I would give up on this car if I didn’t still have to make monthly payments on it. If I have to pay for the thing it darn well better be working!!!!!! We have opened a claim with corporate....and I am at my wits end.
