A xxxx Good Car
May 2, 2019
I grudgingly bought a brand new 2008 Elantra when gas prices spiked. Eight years and 255,000 miles later, I left with nothing but good things to say. In all that time, the only thing that ever went bad was a single alternator. That's it. I did all the regular maintenance, to include brakes, oil changes, and two timing belt changes. It eventually needed new struts. This is all stuff that any car will need at that mileage. But the engine and power train are as good as anything out there. All the buttons and everything electrical worked perfectly until the day someone ran into me hard and totalled it. Terrific vehicle.
