They blow up

Mine blew up. While I was driving. Not a big fan of almost dying while driving. Only had it a year. It was a nice car while it lasted. And I was careful about keeping up with maintenance too.

Reliable, Fun and Comfortable

I began financing this vehicle November of 2021, and it’s been going ever since. The only issue I had with it so far was an engine misfire, new spark plug and coil and I was back on the road. This car is also very fuel efficient and I rarely have to fill up twice in the same week. I don’t recommend using eco mode as I found it ate up more fuel than it was suppose to. The interior is comfortable and spacious, making it easy to load in large grocery runs with the back seats down. The front seats are the most comfortable but are not the worse. I love the sleek look of the exterior and the front grill. Overall this vehicle has been very reliable and worth the money! As a first time Korean car owner (my last car being a Lexus) I will definitely be sticking with Hyundai for the long haul!

Amazing Car

I leased the 2018 Hyundai Elantra GT in 2018 and purchased the car when the lease was up April 2022. So far, I can say that I have not had any trouble with the car - its performance, etc. In todays market it would have been foolish of me to give up this car because the pay off was amazing and I only had 18,000 miles on the car.

They cut corners on the wiring

They used cheap wiring to connect the lights. Rodents and squirrels get under the car and eat the paper wrapped wires. Cheap. Should have at least used better wire.

Most Dangerous car I’ve ever owned

I waited to make review for this place because I wanted to see if the car truly had any issues. I bought a 2018 Blue Hyundai Elantra GT hatchback from them in July 2020. The two representatives who helped me were friendly, one of them was named Gary and the other was Edwin. Good customer service. Now for the car, they said it was fully inspected for any safety issues and it meets their own safety standards (don’t know what that is because it was never elaborated). When I first inspected the car on the lot before purchasing, there was an air bubble in one of the tires which they did not notice until I pointed it out. It wasn’t a problem as they replaced the tire. On November 31st, I was inspecting the car and realized that the CV Axle on the right passenger seat had been replaced. This automatically makes me assume that this car was originally in an accident and they never reported it or otherwise why would you need to replace the CV Axle on a two-year old car with only 30,000 miles? It bothers me that if this was the case, then why wouldn’t you report it or let the customer know? The worse part out of all of this is that they replaced the CV Axle with a HEAVILY RUSTED CV AXLE. It’s literally a part straight from the junkyard. This is EXTREMELY DANGEROUS as if the CV Axle were to fall apart while driving, then I would immediately lose control of my car. I don’t care if you replaced the CV Axle, just replace it with A NEW CV WXLE, not one that’s heavily rusted and about to fall apart which could seriously injure someone or cause death. By the way, I changed the oil and I have no idea what kind of gunk and additives they put into my car. It was disgustingly dirty. I don’t think this was an issue with the two representatives that helped me purchase this car. This was most likely due to the lazy mechanics they have working there or some sleazy manager. I will never recommend this place to anyone.

Fantastic mpg and pretty comfortable for small car

42 mpg on trips and comfortable at boot! Tons of room with seats folded down. Nice big screen for backup camera and tech stuff. Dealer not great but not getting rich on these little guys so maybe to be expected.

Sleek, safe and savvy

This car has met all of my needs and more. Amazing on gas, smooth ride with beautiful red stitching and lining throughout the inside interior. Plenty of legroom for the long legged.

Stylish and great reliable car.

This car met all my needs when it comes to performance, style and reliability. I really like how the car is well made and it’s worth every single penny .
