Nice car!!!

The car has a lot more pep than I though it would. Even though it doesn't have ALL the bells and whistles, it has a lot more than I'm accustomed to! I like the amount of cargo space the car has, and the different configurations available to take advantage of that space. It rides smooth. It's comfortable. It's nice car; a real nice car!


Fun sporty cat

Great acceleration and handling, nice styling, good sound system-use AppleCar Play all the time for sound and maps, love the back-up camera, too. This is a fun car to drive!


Absolutely Love This Car

I had a very specific check list when looking into purchasing a new car. I needed a hatchback (need cargo room, but hate SUV's), I wanted a good amount of performance, tech, and create comforts. Above all I wanted to be below $30k. This pinned the Hyundai Elantra GT N Line against the Honda Civic Sport Touring Hatchback, and the Mazda 3 Hatchback. Both the Honda Civic Sport Touring and Mazda 3 Hatchback were a few thousand dollars more expensive than the Elantra GT N Line, came with less performance, less tech, and overall less features. Financially the Elantra GT N Line had the lead. After I drove all three cars things changed even more, the Elantra GT N Line handles and performs far above it's weight class. It's nimble, quick, and elegant. Overall I have zero gripes about this car so far and is by far my favorite vehicle I have ever owned. The 10 Year / 100000 Mile Limited Powertrain warranty is just icing on the cake. I would highly recommend this car for anyone looking for a "hot hatch" without trying to pay Focus RS / Civic Type R money.


best car i've owned ever.

car met all my standards and more. super fun to drive and super comfortable inside. you should by one of these cars like right now.

Must sell, This car is a "Steal"

Great gas mileage,handles well,nice looking car have had several comments from friends.Grandson who is just getting his license and he told me I love your car I want it!!


Elantra GT N-Line

The perfect commuter car but much more than a, well, commuter car. Specifically wanted a 5-door hatchback, the Elantra GT was on the short list but then I stumbled across the 1.6L turbocharged N-Line variant. Holy cow.. Perfectly comfortable for long drives, rides well, comfortable seats, excellent controls (the dash-mounted multi-function display took some adjusting to), reasonable gas mileage, I'm typically getting 32+. It could probably deliver better mileage BUT, once I'm off the freeway, I put the car into sport mode and start standing on the throttle while looking for twisty roads. When the turbo kicks in, this car goes like a scalded cat. The suspension and steering are up to the additional power and the car handles very well and tracks very well. Unlike my previous car ('14 Kia Forte5 w/ the 2L), there is no dead spot when the wheel is centered. There is a fair amount of torque steer when you stand on it but forewarned is for-armed. Only two problems to date. I've had the check engine come on four times now for the same issue, ie, indication of a coolant system/coolant sensor problem. My dealer had to go back to Hyundai's tech department for an answer the third time the light illuminated, they recommended the classic "well...try this, if that doesn't work, try that" approach. Also, this morning, with 24K+ miles, the rear camera display started flickering. Both are covered under warranty but the repetitive check engine situation is annoying. Having said that, otherwise, no complaints. Great car!


Performance power is kind of weak. The brakes are

Car is pretty nice it's just lacking in power and not very good braking oh, it seems like the front brakes work harder than the rear brakes


Best Bang For Buck

If you can do better - a better warranty, performance and amenities, affordability and great gas mileage combined, please post it. Hyundai Elantra GT is a superb vehicle in its class and for even upscale cars. It's fairly quiet and smooth, with relatively crisp pickup. Gas mileage seems pretty good and is comparable to other cars in its class, and better than many. The dashboard is easily accessible and push button starter with a key-less entry fop makes it even easier to use. I enjoy all the extra features that include tire pressure readings. Most of all, the warranty is better than most. In fact, I don't know of another company that offers a ten year bumper to bumper package as standard warranty. I know friends who've purchased used Hyundai's with high mileage, and put even more mileage on them. One friend drives for a delivery service and has over three-hundred thousand miles on his car. Some claim that the cars could go a half million miles or more if properly cared for.
