My first new car in 30 years-a Hyundai again!
October 15, 2017
I was not expecting to buy a brand-new car when I went shopping but got such a good deal, I could not refuse, and I love my Elantra GT.
The styling is beautiful, and I feel like I'm driving a sports car. It has a lot of zip, and I have to be careful not to drive too fast. I do find the six-speed transmission a little strange, primarily because when I slow down, it kind of jerks into the lower gear.
It is comfortable, and I am surprised that the seats are so comfortable, because I've been in newer cars with seats that are very uncomfortable. The controls are easily accessible and easy to use. I don't need all the bells and whistles that would have added cost.
It handles well, and the space it provides is perfect for when I need to haul. I was driving a 20-year-old Jeep and do not miss all that space. As a veteran flea-marketer, it provides enough cargo space to handle everything I need to carry, and then some. There is also plenty of space for my two dogs. One thing I don't like, and that goes for all cars, is the carpeting is hard to clean dog hair out of.
Over-all, I have to say I am very happy with my new car. Of course, I've only had it for just over three weeks, but really can find no big complaints. I was happy with my Hyundai 30 years ago and am happy again.
