VERY NICE CAR! Younger people don't know that in the 70s 80s that small cars had no options to speak of .A/C was a huge option. No power windows ,door locks ,cruise control etc.... My first new car was a1979 Toyota Celica. Those were great cars and sold like hotcakes! Little 22 r 4 cyl 5 speed stick and dealer added Ac. Hp rating 91!! Oh and Manuel steering. Loved it! Drove it everywhere including 3 trips from so cal to the east coast. Up mountain roads, no problem fast forward to 2016 and people bemoan a compact with only 147 Hp. Really? And all the options any one could want. And reiewers complain it has a little wind noise,some road noise. They do know this is a moving car right?. And some say it rides ok at 55 .please it drives just fine at 80 85 mph all day long! It sure does on my trips to Vegas and back! In this owners opinion, it is an awesome well equipped comfortable competent car, an economy car that's light years ahead of those that came before them. Not one thing that man ever built is perfect. Just buy it. Enjoy it take care of it.and it should serve you well for many many years.
Doesn't feel or look anything like old compacts

First thing is the SE trim is amazingly well equipped inside if you add the tech package. This is the best infotainment I have seen in an economy car or really any luxury car that was 2013 or prior. Large prominent full color display with seemless Pandora integration using Bluetooth or Android auto. Full phone navigation on the display is great as well even if potentially buggy depending on the phone. Cloth seats in 2017 models have come a long way even in the last few years. Usually cloth looks cheap and a little out of place. In this case the cloth looks durable and we'll suited to the clean new look of the car. The patterns are taste full and sharp while the added leather center console and wheel on the upgraded SE make the overall interior feel rich for such a budget car. The base sound system is also surprisingly punchy. My wife's 2013 sonata standard system doesn't have nearly as much body or as clear highs. The sound may not touch a premium set of speakers, but having turned down the limited trim with its upgradable speakers I have to say I am plenty happy with the base system. It seems like they must be pushing more wattage than older base head units because it gets loud enough to make your ears ring with only minor distortion. It reminds me of the difference of adding aftermarket speakers and a custom head unit without an amplifier. So better than expected. This car drives a lot more like my 2013 sonata with better electronic steering, than what I used to consider a compact car. I really happen to love the new feel of their steering and also the very quite ride compared to older models. I feel like the car has plenty of power especially in sport mode. I have no doubt a civic especially a si would destroy it but my car only cost 18k after tax and tag and both base packages with the base trim. Honda doesn't offer any breaks to compete with that price. Though I will say the car can cruise at 80 to 90 and still feel smooth and ready to go. Sport mode gives you passing power enough to feel confident in normal city driving so you are not a punching bag. The only time I would want more passing power would be to drive like a jerk. The car also feels very solid on high speed banks. Overall this is the most refined budget compact car I have ever driven. I also find the new civic extremely appealing but the price on the hyundai is infinitely better with all their incentives.
The Small Car of the Future
Originally I was looking at A Toyota Prius, because of the mileage. However they were out of my price range. I started looking at the Ford Focus, Honda Civic, Toyota Carrolla, and Nissan Sentra (No KIA's, don't like their styling). Other Brand cars left out due to mileage ratings.. After looking, and driving these cars, I settled on A 2017 Hyundai Elantra Limited for its styling, mileage ratings, smooth ride, and good interior setup. The car has a leather interior which is very comfortable. The setup of the interior is very nice, with all the controls within easy reach. The second day we had the car, we headed out on a small trip (265 miles round trip). The ride was smooth, except my wife said the front passenger seat had too much vibration to it (I will have this looked at by the Dealership). I felt very comfortable during the ride to and from our destination. The mileage was great. I averaged 44.5 MPG going to our destination, and then with driving around the Wildlife refuge (start and stop many times), we ended up for the whole trip with a combined mileage average of 42.3 MPG. I have repeated these numbers time after time going to and from work (30 miles each way. I travel about 24 miles on the freeway, and 6 miles in city. They had a great price, and the dealership was willing to come down substantially on the price. I found this very good, since their main concentration was selling their prior years stock of 2016’s. The experience with the salesman was great (His name is Woody – Streetsboro, Ohio). I would definitely buy a car from him again. I will end this by saying I look forward to getting in this car and driving to work every day.
I love my eleantra it does great on gas n takes me where I need to go especially. Back n forth to work!

Just drove the car out of the dealer 7 miles down the road the car over heated. The car is brand new 0 miles before I drove it out the dealer I check all fluids and light condition everything check ok. Car is too noisy,you can hear everything inside. 2006 had better noise cancellation than this car. The sit is not really comfortable to a big person. Other than that features are pretty nice for the price the car is worth.

The Elantra is a great basic compact automobile. I think it looks and performs better than other makes in this class. Rides quietly, handles well, very good gas mileage, comfortable and controls are laid out well.
2017 Hyundai Elantra Ltd (Love the Deal)
Not easy entry for Extra-Large people. Otherwise, it's an affordable car pretending to be a luxury/sports car and it make you believe it.
Luxury at a low cost
2017 Elantra Limited . Originally I was seeking a SE model but found a dealer that gave me the Limited model for the same price I was going to pay for the SE . It's best to shop around until you get what you want. Make sure you get all the incentives available too, then dicker a bit.

I'm a big guy- 6 feet tall 240 and the front seat in the SE is not giving me support- my back aches driving to car but I am planning to get a special seat cushion- this is an ok car and lacks some extras that could make the car more technical savvy- Only one USB that we can find- No back up camera, and a CD player?? We wanted the basic model to lease AND WE GOT A GREAT DEAL.......payment is only $180 a month with zero down- Dealer was very knowledgeable and we were in and out in under two hours- that was cool- car looks awesome- and has a lot of room vs the competition- but it is like a rental car and I wish Hyundai would have made some simple additions in technology to the basic SE model-

The value on this vehicle is amazing, very easy to drive and comfortable. I work For Hyundai and to be honest i never even considered owning one until I took a customer on a test drive in the 6 speed manual. I was hooked. The ease of shifting and how simple the SE is. I was looking to get into an SUV or something a little bit Larger but I ended up loving the Elantra. the 10 Year 100k Mile Power-train warranty keeps maintenance simple and the 5 year 60K bumper to bumper makes it even better.

The Elantra is probably the best bang for the buck as far as bells and whistles are involved. We got ours for 19k out the door. The infotainment system is great. Sleek styling and easy to use. The 6-speed auto transmission shifts smoothly and on time. Gives you 40 MPGs on the highway. The ride is comfortable with a little wind noise. Plenty of room in the back, as opposed to the Corollas. This is a great family sedan.
Bought this car and they erred in pricing, =)

The Hyundai dealership realized there error and sold it to me for the lower price anyway. It's a great car and we absolutely love it. I got 40.4 MPG on the way home at 5MPH under the speed limit. The only thing I don't like is that the android auto app requires a USB connect and doesn't work over blutooth. (The kids blew out my HDMI ports by hot swapping cables on the 72" TV so I worry about these things now.)

I wanted to trade in my 2011 Kia optima which had 97000 and not one problem. The only thing I did was fill with gas, change the oil every 5000 miles and buy one new set of tires. I took a civic ex home one night for a test drive And did the same with an elantra se with popular and tech packages. The civic was nice and the dealer was very easy to work with but the civic just didn't fit me right. I could not get in a comfortable position. It was a great car and the CVT wasn't bad. How can they make a car without xm though? There are no incentives on the civic and the dealer can only discount so much when they are selling like hotcakes. I went back to Hyundai to drive a limited with no extra packages. I knew I had found my next car. It has everything I need and want and nothing I don't. The ride is so smooth and quiet. Very impressive. The six speed transmission is really nice. They say the power is "lacking" but I think what that means is that the mazda 3 has more power. This is a compact car. The power is more the adequate. I ended up getting around 3800 off sticker plus .9 for 60. I felt this was a really good deal. This car is not selling well so the dealer has to be aggressive. I would highly recommend you test drive his vehicle before buying another.

If you plan to ONLY drive this car around town, then you'll be just fine. The Elantra is not made for long distance driving. It's a 4 cylinder car that does not have great pick up. Since I have a very short commute to work and don't take the highway, that is the reason I bought the Elantra. That being said, I do like the car. It is very comfortable to drive and I am getting great gas mileage. Plus, the Elantra has a fantastic rear view camera. The only other problem I have encountered is that A/C goes in and out when I stop at a light.

I had my heart set on a Toyota Corolla. I visited a nearby Toyota dealership and met with a salesman who never called me back. I phoned a second dealership and told the salesman I'd come in on Saturday only to find out on Saturday the car I told them I wanted to see was sold to that salesman's mom! Whaaaat? So since it wasn't working out for me I decided to consider a different car. Honda is sure nice but I realized I could get perty near the same thing from Hyundai for $1000 less. My 2012 Ford Focus Titanium was totaled but I knew I would never purchase another because the transmission made an unattractive sound (we called it the car-fart sound) intermittently and Ford is facing a class action suit regarding the transmissions. It did have an awesome ten speaker sound system, which I miss, and I thank God for the bags that popped open all around me and protected my body from serious injury. Mazda, I have past emotional baggage regarding Mazda and though their "soul red metallic" rocks and is richer than my Hyundai in scarlet red pearl, I just cannot have a Mazda in my life. The small sedan Chevrolet never appealed to me. I decided to look at Hyundai. Three people where I work, all in management, drive Hyundais and are very satisfied with their cars. Most important to me was to get something in a pretty red (not bright red), a sedan not SUV, small but not teensy, highly reliable, good gas mileage, and most of all, heated seats. I test drove a 2017 Hyundai Elantra Limited and, surprisingly, I liked it. The ride is remarkably smooth and quiet. I once had a Chrysler LeBaron convertible and it was also smooth but like riding on a cushy pillow - which I liked. The Elantra is quiet and over bumps it's soft and smooth but without bounce, if that makes sense. An article in the San Diego Union-Tribune explains it better. It says that it is "bonded with aircraft-grade glue — 390 feet of the adhesive compared with about 10 feet in the previous model. The result is a snug cabin, reduced vibration and a stronger foundation to hang the suspension for a more-planted ride." I bought it two months ago and am very pleased with the purchase. The seat gets nice and warm even on my back. I see I will have to pay for the Bluelink after 12 months and I am still learning all it does, but it's nice being able to turn the car on from afar. My 57-year-old eyes that need reading glasses can see the text on the LCD screen well enough and the touchscreen responds better than the one in my Ford Focus did. My husband got me a little clippie thing to attach my iPhone to the air vent and it's easy to use the Bluetooth navigation that way. I figured I don't need nav in the car since it's on my phone. The only thing I wish I had that I don't have is the upgraded sound system. The regular sound system is okay, but I like to feel my music so I sure do miss having some decent bass. The car comes with quite a few zoo-zoos and wham-whams like the back-up camera and a warning sound if a car is too close and the free roadside assistance for five years doesn't hurt my feelings either. I had thought that Hyundai was sort of a weird car, but it's not weird. It's a good car! The 2016 Toyota Corolla I test drove is pretty plain in comparison. I will update if I have any problems with it.

1. The raised center console gets in the way when shifting, and when just driving. 2. I don't want keyless doors and trunk, and there is no option for "manual". 3. The electronic odometer/etc. is too cluttered and mult-purpose. give me one spot for each function and minimize "cute" inscrutable" symbols. 4. Tire pressure sensors are great, but tell me the actual pressures when I "ask" to see them. 5. Ditto with engine coolant temp. give me the number in Farenheit. (You could add an oil temp output too.)
Dollar for dollar, no other cars can compare
It's very simple, any car that has a 100,000 mile and/or 10 year warranty, is not building junk. They have the customers interest at hand.

I wanted a car with better gas mileage to replace my old 2003 Sonata. However, I also wanted a car with some creature comforts and not just a plain small econo-box. I started looking about a year ago and checked out all the 2015 compact cars. They were okay, but they all lacked the look I liked or the interior was wrong for me. I read the previews about some of the new models and since they sounded promising, I held off buying any of the older cars. Finally the new 2016 Honda Civic and Chevy Cruze rolled out. They received good reviews and the Civic received raves in some places. The prices for the upscale models killed them for me though. I wanted something nice, but not one that would drain my wallet to get one. I finally decided to check out what Hyundai was offering. I had not realized the old Elantra had been completely replaced by a new 2017 model year design. When I came across that news, I was interested to say the least. Hyundai always offers great features, long warranty (I already knew that from before), and decent prices. So I checked out the early reviews and they were positive to very positive, putting the Elantra in the top tier of compact cars. I then saw that Hyundai had a bunch of rebates in effect so I jumped at the chance. I had the find one in the color and trim and I wanted - Mineral Beige in Limited trim - hard to find. But find one I did and took it out for a drive and said to myself, I glad I held out as this is the car I wanted. I bought it right then and there. Pros: Excellent looking car. I think it looks better than most competitors in the class. The 17inch alloys are nice and makes the car distinct. Very good gas mileage. Most of my driving is highway with some city mixed in and I'm getting 39mpg combined. Ride is composed, with good road feel. I would have preferred a little more give over bumps, but that is personal preference. You can corner going fairly fast and the tires grip well even though the car is not marketed to the performance crowd. Very little wind noise and engine noise. 147 horsepower is more than enough in this car. It passes on two lanes fast enough to hit 90mph before you know it. The leather seats are comfortable with really good side bolstering and with the power driver seat and tilt/telescoping steering wheel, it wheel gives me an excellent driving position. Excellent blind-side traffic detection and cross-traffic detection when backing up. These are must haves when buying a new car and Hyundai's version works really well. Back seat room will be fine for most people and the seats are nice for the class. The AV Media and Radio system is nice. Upscale and works well with plenty of features for the Bluetooth and Wifi users. The standard limited trim has plenty of goodies for most people unless you really want rear heated seats and adaptive cruise control and other high end extras that you are willing to pay more for. Cons: Could have used more soft-touch materials on the door. The plain plastic around the power window buttons detracts from the experience in the limited trim. The trunk is a little small, but this is a compact car after all. The tires are noisy to my ears and intrude into the cabin. I wish Hyundai would have done a little better here. No remote start on the control fob. You have to use the Bluelink cellphone system and pay for the previlage to start remotely. You do get other features if you pay the Bluelink fee. To get the Homelink system with programmable garage door opener you have to add the extra technology package. The package includes other major goodies that some people will want. You can add the Homelink rearview mirror later on as an accessory, but I wish that had been part of the standard limited trim. Overall this is a five star car. Hyundai has really elevated the Elantra in class for 2017. If you don't need the a Sonata size vehicle, you will want to take the Elantra for a test drive and see for youself. Treat yourself to the Limited and you will not be dissappointed for years to come in my opinion.
Hyundai Elantra Eco 2017
I LOVE this CAR!
I was looking for a car with upgraded technology- My must haves were Back up camera, Navigation, lane change alerts and heated seats. I got the best of all of these along with dual A/C which means I can stop arguing with my spouse about the interior temperature. I cannot believe we got all this in an Elantra! This is my 3rd Elantra (2008/2012) and I honestly wasn't going to get another until I saw this beauty on the lot (shimmery beige). My 2012 got horrible gas mileage, so i wasn't expecting much. To my amazement, I have been getting 33-35 mpg every tank, so that is a mix of all driving. I don't gun it to accelerate, but my husband does, so it is truly a combination of all driving. This week, 35.7! I am not reading the MPG that is on the screen, I am calculating it when I fill my tank, based on miles i drove, so it is completely accurate! It took me awhile to figure out the navigation, but it high quality and great graphics. My only tiny complaint, is that the screen is so sensitive, it is not easy to touch and scroll. I still haven't gotten used to that. It has way better acceleration than my '08I have never been happier with a car. Definitely a "BUY!"

This is one fine car to drive for comfort and handling.From the very nice seating to the fine quiet ride, the limited Elantra is always an enjoyable ride, on city streets or highway driving, its a great enjoyable ride.The gas mileage is 25 city 39 highway and very good performance.Very quiet and a very solid feel over all kinds of roads.Visibility and safety are great and the radio really sounds high end.There is a roomy and comfortable rear seat thats easy getting in and out.Steering is also an improvement over earlier models which gives me a confident feel.Overall for the class I think this car ranks right at the top.
Amazing value in a car!

This car is quiet, nimble, conservative yet athletic in its styling, intuitive and perhaps better in fuel economy than its ratings suggest. The overall fit and finish feels expensive and there is a feeling of safety and reliability conveyed. I have the base Limited PZEV model (NY). If I wanted to hire lease payment there was an additional technology package in ultimate package that would have taken this vehicle over the top for me. But hey, we all have a budget. The ride was second to none when compared with others in its segment and despite the slightly dated torsion beam suspension in the rear rather than newer multi-link suspension technology, this car floats! Let's not forget as well that even though this car competes in the compact segment, the 2017 Elantra qualifies as a midsize sedan based on its interior space. Engine pickup is actually not disappointing and feels appropriate for this segment. Want more zing? Pop it in sport mode and you've got more than enough power to giddyup. The steering also tightens in this mode for a better feel around corners at higher speeds. The Limited trim was my favorite by far and dressed out the car quite nicely. Gotta love the 17 in. "Ninja wheels," as I like to call them. The SE trim, however was unexciting and the wheels just didn't do it for me. A disappointment in the Limited model came when discovering that the moon roof did not come standard as in even the second tier trims of the all new Civic. Hyundai promised new trims will be available later. The Hyundai entertainment system lacks text messaging, which can be frustrating, but all models of this year offer Android Auto and Apple Car Play. (be sure to close apps you're not using or it will be slow). Support for Android Auto was was actually high on my list when shopping to replace my 2013 Corolla. Hyundai blue link allows you to start with climate control, unlock, lock, toggle horn and lights and more with it's connected package, which is free for a year and the remote package, which is $75 your first year and 99 after that. Hyundai blue Link app also supports smart watches. These are great features but it is disappointing that there is no remote start on the key fob itself and it is only available through blue link or having an optional remote start added requiring a second key fob. There's also no option to just purchase the package you must have connected package (roadaide assistance, SOS etc.) which is another hundred dollars if you desire the remote package. Want OnStar-like navigation and support? Throw another "hundy" at Hyundai. As far as convenience goes, when approaching the car if it has been locked, the door handles light up, assisting you with getting into your car without damaging it and giving the driver a feel that the car knows him or her. Also, there is a smart trunk which opens when the driver stands behind the trunk with the key fob for more than four seconds with the doors locked. Very very handy! Is it the most full-featured, bells and whistles car out there? Well...no, but it sure does compete and offer amazing value and quality. Every car has pros and cons and there is a very high probability that this car has just the pros you're looking for.
Out of the ball park
Just traded a 7 month old 2016 SE for the new 2017 Limited. So many nice safety and other features standard. Much quieter and solid feeling, love the drive mode for the steering/transmission. Can't rate the reliability due to the newness of the car, but based on my other 2 Elantras, it should be a home run also.
The new 17 is better that previous model
So I drove a Silver Limited the other day, I have to say it drives and feels way better than either my 12 or 13 limited. It does feel more like a luxury sedan. For people who say the looks are not as good go see it in person, after the test drive I parked it next to my Silver 12 limited and I can say the new one is more attractive. The side view is similar but the new one is slightly more aerodynamic looking. The front end looks a lot better and the rear end looks wider and slightly better. I am not going to jump in right away but I may trade one of our cars for a new one.
