Reliable, Comfortable, and Inexpensive

2004 Hyundai Elantra GLS

I get a lot out use out of my vehicle and it had 100,000+ miles on it when I bought it. I love that the windows are large and that the blind spot on this car is very small. There are some missing components that should be in the dash. This car is certainly equipment for a smoker. There is a cigarette lighter and an ashtray built into the middle console. The car rides very low to the ground which can be a problem sometimes. Mine has an automatic transmission. My car has had trouble in the winter when it gets very cold and has had some problems with a low coolant level. I have had a flat tire, have had to replace the water pump and it is now in the shop with a transmission issue. I like my car and the brand Hyundai in general. It has not been very expensive to take care of. It changes gears very smoothly and has great gas mileage. It's not expensive to fill up the gas tank at about $3 a gallon it takes only about $25 to fill the tank starting at 1/4 of a tank.

It's grey with rust all underneath the car.

2004 Hyundai Elantra GLS

The Elantra was a good car in the beginning. It was very reliable, needed repairs rarely, and wasn't a gas guzzler. As time went on and the car got older, the car's reliability began to waver. It began breaking down all the time and by the end of the car's life, it had rust all throughout the underneath of the car, making it undriveable. I would not recommend this car to anyone, to be honest.

Reliable Hyundai Elantra car.

2004 Hyundai Elantra GLS

The reliability of the car is good. I am at 160,000 miles and everything is driving well. The lights burn out really quick and are super dim. It is annoying to have to replace them about every other month. The engine is still running well. I would recommend this car as a reliable city car, but I would avoid doing a lot of highway driving. It gets a bit shaking over 60 mph.

Very reliable and very comfortable

2004 Hyundai Elantra GLS

It's been a very reliable vehicle. Its 15 years old and still gets me where I need to go. Its having some issues now with my check engine light but it's still driving well until I am able to get it serviced. Some parts are a little pricey now that the vehicle is so old that it costs more than the vehicle is worth but when it was a younger car it was as just fine.

Mine was a 'southern car' purchased in a state south of me, so it had no rust.

2004 Hyundai Elantra GLS

it has very minor problems for a fifteen year old car, it has been very well maintained. the only issue is a few flakes of paint missing, and some sun damage/bleaching on the front and rear bumpers, and the window motor has stopped working on one side. again, it's a fifteen year old car so I find this to be a minor issue

- Cassie T

I like how spacious it is and how much stuff I can fit in it.

2004 Hyundai Elantra GLS

The check Engine light won't turn off or the airbag light. And it's kinda weird smell when you get in the car. It gets me from point a to point B and it's starting to rust by the wheels. Also it's hard to turn the key for some reason. The paint is starting to come off the car on top and the front and the trunk of the car.

Great car. Great gas mileage

2004 Hyundai Elantra GLS

Alternator went tire popped to easy other than that great car. It is a very reliable car besides those 2 issues. I have had many cars and by far I love this one the most. It gets me where I need to go with really good gas mileage it's nice to only spend 20 dollars to fill at a half of tank.

- Christopher E

The Elantra can be outfitted with a trailer hitch and auto start feature.

2004 Hyundai Elantra GLS

The 2004 Elantra gls is extremely reliable, I have only had 1 maintenance issue in 82,000 miles. It gets great gas mileage as well. The stock paint does fade faster than normal, but the sound system is excellent for a smaller vehicle. Overall I am very satisfied as the owner of the car.

- Brian T

A Very reliable good car, I would recommend it

2004 Hyundai Elantra GLS

Performance wise the car is very durable body/framing will go before the motor and everything else. It's very reliable, as long as you keep good fluid and take care of regular maintenance it will last for a long time. Very recommendable for a decent car that will last you awhile

230000 miles and still going strong

2004 Hyundai Elantra GLS

The power windows are a plus until one or two of the windows come off track. The gas up process can be a real pain especially if your tank constantly either spits the gas out or makes you pump slow to keep it in. Other than those minor issues my Hyundai is a trooper!!

- Jamie M

Has problems but still runs

2004 Hyundai Elantra GLS

There's a problem switching gears and the check engine light blinks often. The drivers door has to be unlocked 3 times to unlock, and the passenger window doesn't work unless the driver does it. Other than them at the car is great, it's kept on driving
