A must test drive in the small car class!! by bigdincolo on 04/15/2012. Trim: 2012 Hyundai Elantra Limited, Owned less than 1 year.
Pros: Best bang for the buck. Comparable cars in it's class cost more. Very comfortable, roomy interior. Backseat space much bigger than competitors. Very compact and doesn't take up much garage space. Nimble.
Cons: There are some minor cons about the car, but any car at this price isn't perfect. Road noise is pronounced, especially at high speeds. Gas mileage can vary greatly. Rear defrost stinks, may be just my car though.
Overall review: Overall, this car is awesome. A fully loaded Elantra is several thousands less than fully loaded competitors in this class. My three teenagers fit in the back. They wouldn't have in the Cruze and other competitors. 40mpg is easily obtainable if driving >90% highway at 60-65mph, but increased city driving will make that mpg mark plummet. We have averaged around 35mpg (65%/35% highway/city). Great dealer buying experience, completed financing within an hour and no BS. Best car purchase i have made, absolutely no buyer's remorse. If you're in the small car market, you have to test drive it!

Ideal bigger than it seems small sedan. by Al from mid-Michigan on 04/24/2012. Trim: 2012 Hyundai Elantra Limited, Owned less than 1 year.
Pros: Had the car a little over a month, and I love it, it has nice styling is loaded for the price. The mileage is very good, the car has a very solid feel to it. Holds the road, and having traded in a Honda Fit, I do not find it unresponsive, and it's handling has been a big and pleasant surprise.
Cons: Like most new cars it does have some blind spot issues.
Overall review: Totally happy with this car, I like the smooth ride, and all the features and extras for the price...it is like a little luxury car. I have the Limited w/o the navigation package.

SONATA is better value than Elantra by Hans from Las Vegas NV on 12/30/2011. Trim: 2012 Hyundai Elantra GLS M/T, Owned less than 1 year.
Pros: Styling is the best feature of this vehicle. The manual 6-speed transmission is excellent.
Cons: The promised gas mileage is incorrect. Under a mixed traffic pattern I am not able to get more than 32MPG. Which is a mix of 30% City and 70% HWY. The original tires are very noisy. In general the road noise is louder than comparable cars. I just rented a 2012 Hyundai Sonata and I noticed big differences in product quality and sound insulation. In fact I am regretting not having purchased the base Sonata model instead of the Elantra. The price difference is small in comparision to the much better product quality of the base Sonata GLS.
Overall review: I would recommend the base Sonata GLS over the Elantra.

What is and Elantra? by Greg Utah on 01/01/2012. Trim: 2012 Hyundai Elantra GLS M/T, Owned 1 year.
Pros: Style. It looks good. Its a great economy car. Has lots of room and is comfortable to drive and gets good gas mileage. The warranty is the best in the industry.
Cons: Its a little notchy in 2nd gear. Blind spot is a little scary when I am merging with traffic to get off the freeway
Overall review: Can't think of a better car for the money.
