Super awesome

I love driveing my car super cool little car im very satisfied with the touring ,elantra very satisfied with in and out design nice feature putting in bluetooth and aux plug in


Lots of space, entertaining to drive

I needed to replace my 1998 Honda CRV and wanted a cheap car under $10,000 that had the same cargo space, less road noise, safer and as a plus was fun to drive. I stayed away from german cars because at that budget they would all require maintenance. The only two options left were the Acura TSX Wagon, Subaru Outback and a 3rd Gen CRV. I ran into this car and was impressed by how large the interior was for a compact car. It has the same cargo space as my old CRV, came in a manual and has a 1:12 turning steering ratio--thats tighter then some sport coupes! I had the GLS model with no frills. The only thing I added was a hitch to carry two mountain bikes and I had the interior Dynamatted for $300 which reduced road noise by 4db. The stereo speakers are also impressive for the price point.


Fun Red Hatchback

Exactly what I wanted, very good cargo capacity, favorable MPG, runs well. Nice leather seat, sunroof, seats are comfortable, smooth ride for a small car.


Fantastic car

This car has everything I wanted and more...I absolutely love it. This is my second elantra from them and I could not be happier with new features of lane control and braking system along with heated seat and a moonroof. It's a 2020 but I had the same make and model in 2018 and love both.


They eat brakes like candy, but they're great cars

This is one of the few cars made in the last 20 years that has good visibility, good room, and a minimum of techno-gimmickery. It fits four full-size adults comfortably and has lots of cargo space. I own two of them, I like them so much! However, they do go through brakes - pads, discs AND calipers - at an astonishing rate, and brake parts are not easy (or especially cheap) to come by (they can even be hard to find on RockAuto sometimes). They're also not especially quick, but as a commuter they're tough to beat!


Great car

Great car. Awesome condition. We bought a 2012 Hyundai Elantra from Jarret Gordon Ford and it is fantastic. This car looks brand new inside and outside. The car rides and handels very good. I would highly recommend this car.


Has been a fantastic car.

Very practical for my growing family, I have owned it for 7.5years and no regrets (minus the "wagon" look). Spacious (seriously, fits a TON of stuff!), comfortable and great gas mileage. A few warranty repairs over the years, but well maintained it has no issues.


Sporty, fuel efficient, lots of cargo space.

I love this car. It is fuel efficient, sporty and has great cargo space. We've even stretched out and slept in the back in a pinch. Heated seats are great. Great value for the money!


Loved the car...not so much their honest

This car is great. I know it well. It runs fine. I was very surprised however by the way the dealership listed this car. Supposedly all of their used cars are safety checked by their mechanics, and by the state safety checks. Well, this car had 4 COMPLETELY bald tires on it when I test drove it. I wasn't even comfortable driving on tires that old on a beautiful dry day in the summer. Anyway, tires are a small thing, can easily be changed. I was just disappointed on how they advertised this car online.



Great designed car. Back seats fold down to haul my three dogs around. The dash is sleek without a lot of "clutter" some cars have. Easy visibility and easy on the pocketbook when it comes to gasoline. I feel it is one of the nicest small autos for the price.
