The little car that could: a review of a 2005 Hyundai Elantra sedan.

The vehicle I am currently driving is a blue 2005 Hyundai Elantra 4 door sedan. It was actually purchased by me in 2013, used, for my daughter as her first vehicle. She drove it for the next 5 years during which there were no major issues with the vehicle. Routine maintenance was provided to the vehicle during this time period. Overall, the vehicle show signs of wear and tear in it is interior and exterior that I believe are about average for a car of its year. The paint is wearing off in some spots, but not too noticeable. The interior of the vehicle is nothing fancy and not what it used to be but I find it fairly comfortable. Everything works as it should inside of the vehicle. I have been driving the vehicle for 3 months now because mine was totaled in an accident. It is not what I am used to driving but it is reliable and gets me from point A to point B. Compared to other cars I have driven, it is decent on gas and mileage. It has been relatively easy to take care of and only has required routine maintenance since I have been driving it. I do find that it accelerates very slowly and requires a lot of effort to do so, especially if going uphill. It accelerates even slower when running the air conditioner almost to the point of stalling. For this reason, I do not use the air conditioner. I also do not take it on the freeway or any roads that are fast paced because I do not think it would be safe. In general, it is not something that you could take on a cross-country trip, but more suited for short trips to work, school or the store.

Great car, no big surprises.. Except for the reliability!

Small problems like the window motor goes out, heating and ac only go from on to full blast, no levels. Overall I have had her almost 11 years and runs great. Very reliable. As a tall person, I often have a hard time fitting into small vehicles. While this is not a perfect fit by any stretch, it was one of the more comfortable cars for me to drive in this size and price range. They're cute and small, not known for their maneuverability or speediness. My mom refers to this car as a roller skate, to give you an idea of how it handles. But I do not go fast and I do not care about a lot of pickup, I just want a car that'll get me back and forth to work all the time and this car definitely does!

Enjoy this handy, zippy ride.

It has good storage features - nice sized trunk and the seats fold down 1/3 or 2/3 so my golf clubs can poke through. The front doors each have deep troughs where I can store things and the center console has a shallow top section and deep bottom section. There is a deep storage tray below the radio and a hollow in the dash above the radio as well as a pop open glasses case above the rearview mirror. There are pockets on the back of the front seats, as well. It is a very reliable car, seldom needing repairs. It is really zippy and easy to maneuver on the highway. It has a nice big windshield and the dash does not obstruct the view.

This is not bad for a small car.

My Hyundai Elantra 2005 has very good gas mileage. The 10 year warranty made it easier for me to maintain the Elantra so it lasts much longer and I can get the most value out of it. I like that it is small but with a small car it is not very comfortable. It also sits very low to the ground giving a flintstones feel that your feet are dragging. The radio and speakers are basic and I've noticed their must be a wire loose because when the channel, the sound goes in and out. In the winter it does not drive that great in the snow, but on the good side, it has very good heat.

Hyundai rocks. Hyundai is a well made car with little maintenance and will last a long time if taken care of.

I bought my Hyundai Elantra in 2012 when it was 7 years old. The previous owner was gentle and only put on 68,000 miles. I have now owned the car for 6 years and have only put on about 10,000 miles myself. The car is great. I have had no engine problems other than the normal oil changes. Tires normal wear and tear. Occasionally hitting potholes, but that happens everywhere. No complaints, car has held up well. Hyundai was Highly recommended by my auto mechanic when I was first looking for a different car. I took his advice and have never looked back.

- Valerie B

Amazing car for the money.

I have had this vehicle for 14 years and have had no major problems with it. I am the only owner so I know everything about it. I had it when I was single and now I have a ten year old child. It has worked extremely well for my family. Perfect amount of space. Amazing gas mileage. It has been on many trips. Never had any issues with luggage fitting. When this car can no longer run I plan on buying a new Hyundai Elantra. I love the new body styles as well. I highly recommend this vehicle.

- Amanda S

Stay at home mom's dream car.

My Hyundai Elantra is a great little family car/grocery getter. I feel very safe and secure in it and so does my family. It has excellent security features for its age and it is everything my family needs. It is an older car so it does not have all of the modern features like USB ports and hands free communication but I do not need those kinds of things in my car. I am very pleased with my little car and would buy another one in the future and would also suggest it to all of my friends.

- Amber K

Elantra - the perfect choice.

My Hyundai Elantra is comfortable, reliable and the perfect size for me. It seats 4 and the trunk is very roomy. It rides smoothly. It has a sunroof which is ideal in the spring. It has air conditioning which is exactly what I want during the summer months. In the 14 years that I have had the car, I have had minimal issues with it. Of course, the brakes needed to be replaced a couple times as well as the tires which I expect with any vehicle. I truly love my car and think you would too.

- Susan C

My great on gas get you around Hyundai Elantra.

I purchased my car used, which can sometimes be a problem. When purchasing I did notice some rust issues but, as time passed and I owned the car for longer I started to realize the rust issue was a much bigger problem than just the exterior. I do appreciate the gas mileage I get in my 05 Elantra, it is a manual which gets annoying at times but over all this vehicle has been reliable for minus fixing the few rusted parts.

- Marissa S

Hyundai Elantra practical car for the practical person.

Well my car is 14 years old no discernible problem to be honest. Just do the routine maintenance and it should run just fine. If I could change anything I would like to have better gas mileage. It is not bad by any stretch of the imagination but it is 24 miles to the gallon city in like 29 highway. I'd like it to be a little bit higher but for the age of the car I do not think that is too bad.

- John B

It is fantastic on your gas tank.

I like how it feels to drive the car, but the acceleration is slow. Also, sometimes the car will not start, but I think I need to get a new battery. It is nice that it is a manual because it is amazing on my gas mileage. There are a few problems, like the vents will run slightly, even when I turn the knob to 0, and the windshield wipers do not work great even when I replace them.

- Michael D

Review of the 05 Hyundai Elantra.

2005 Hyundai Elantra is very comfortable smooth ride. At around 87000 miles it seems like the thermostat may be stuck open causing the heater to be intermittent. Hot when driving, cool when stopped. But, since it is coming on summertime I will not change it. The exhaust system also seems to need work as I can hear it start to sound louder. Overall, decent reliable family car.

- Melissa C

The car has been one of the best cars I have owned.

The car drives smoothly which makes keeping control of the vehicle effortless. One section of the back seat folds down from the trunk for additional room if needed for transporting items. I like how the car is just big enough for me to comfortably hunch over to buckle my daughter in her car seat during heavy rain so that I do not end up soaking wet.

- Megan H

Good gas mileage in town or on freeway.

I bought the car new in 2005. I have replaced alternator and timing belt. Everything else has been standard service oil change radiator flush. It is been a very reliable car still in excellent shape with no major issues ever popping up. Did have issues with the headlights burning out quickly in the beginning but seem to have resolved itself.

- Karen C

I think these cars are notorious for catalytic converter issues.

The Hyundai elantra runs well enough, but I have recently started to have several different problems. The check engine light seems to be on all the time, as soon as I get one thing fixed, something else comes up. I do love the size and the look of the car, it is been quite comfortable inside and it has been a nice ride, until now.

- Cynthia C

Great family or everyday car!

The 2005 Hyundai Elantra is perfect for families. It's a very small and compact vehicle though it does not feel cramped inside. Drives extremely smooth even after 13 years. Good gas mileage, this vehicle is a perfect everyday car. I drive it to school each day which is 20 miles away and only have to fill it up on Monday!

- Fast L

A very good everyday car from someone. i.e. Commuter car.

I love my red, little car. It drives fairly well and the heater works amazing. It is a little older so it does not come with the new add ons like normal new cars that come out today. It has been running perfect for about 10 plus years, so the things that are wrong with it come from normal wear and tear and everyday use.

- Katy D

I am not selling my car so I do not know why it is making me fill all this out.

I will never own a Hyundai again! It is had too many issues in the very short amount of time we've had it but did make it across country! Lol but we did but it cheap and found out it was a salvage title so what really can one expect lol but I am not selling my car so I do not know why it is making me write all of this.

- Autumn W

05 Hyundai Elantra, great student car!

Slight electrical malfunctions, rust-prone, plastic features on console/doors break easily. Comfortable plush interior, enough space for a small sedan. Great first student car, not a luxury race car but perfect for new drivers. Console features are sufficient but not confusing, runs wonderfully for a 16 year old car.

- Emily B

Perfect commute car for daily tasks.

My cars ability is really good. It has a decent amount of miles for how old the car is. It is overall very good looking and comfortable. The features it has is a good radio system and good powered windows and s good size trunk. I haven't had any problems with it recently it has really good gas mileage.

- Breanna T

My 2005 Hyundai Elantra has been with me through thick and thin.

As my care is getting close to it expiration date it has had more problems than not recently however it still runs great and gets excellent gas mileage so I am happy. The performance is still good. The features are outdated but it has a CD player and a spot for an AUX cord. Ac and heat still work.

- Martha S

Reliable, functional, fun.

My Hyundai Elantra is perfect for what I need. It is reliable, functional and fun. The ac runs really cold and the sunroof is really fun in the summertime. The hatchback is perfect for carrying groceries or small suitcases, and the entire back seat folds down for hauling small pieces of furniture.

- Rachel L

Very reliable. Radio is not the best.

The car is very reliable. But when it is cold the front of the car makes a loud noise when the car is being started. The radio is not the best sense it is a older car. The car is not good on the gas. You will need to fill your car every week if especially if you travel on the freeway frequently.

- Ashley A

It is dependable and meets all safety standards.

I like my vehicle because it is reliable and easy to drive. It is pretty fuel efficient for an older car. I haven't had to put too much money into it. Routine maintenance is sufficient to keep it running nicely. I do not like that it does not have the features and technology of a newer vehicle.

- Emily C

Another satisfied Hyundai owner.

My Elantra has been very reliable and that is extremely important to me. Most repair work was typical and expected. I had a heavier car prior to this and I had concerns about performance in inclement weather but it performed better than expected. Overall, this was a good buy and I am pleased.

- Jane A

High points of a Hyundai Elantra.

The Hyundai is a reliable car, gets good gas mileage, has many options, small enough for easy handling. It is also the color I wanted, and was a good deal for the amount for purchase. I believe that Hyundai's are good for the long haul, and the resale value would be good since it is a 2005.

- Joann J

Buy a Hyundai Elantra, you won't be sorry.

It's a great car good on gas and needs very little repairs. I've had it for thirteen years. I bought it used and I would buy a Hyundai Elantra again. I get good gas mileage on it and the Hyundai runs really well. I would tell anyone who wants to buy a Hyundai that it would be a great buy.

- Judith E

It is reliable and rarely needs repairs. It can go for very long miles.

My car is very reliable. It is an older car, but does not have many problems. I have not had to make any major purchases on it in a very long time. The cons are at this point the engine is very loud, especially when it idles, and it is not as fast to accelerate as other cars I have had.

- Matt W

My ever faithful Elantra never lets me down.

It has been one of the best cars I've owned. Getting close to 140,000 miles. Always starts. Gets great gas mileage. Have had to replace cv joints on the front recently but that's about it. The car still has a lot of power and is comfortable to drive. Mine is silver and sporty looking.

- Renee A

It is a great car, it just have a few faults.

While I am driving, the car will slow down and then when I try to press the gas it will jerk and start accelerating really fast. Also it does not have an AUX plug. Everything else about the car is great. Twenty five dollars will fill my tank, and the gas lasts for a great while.

- Kimberly J

The timing belt requires regular changing every 60, 000 miles.

Vehicle is good running car. The car is real good on gas. Brought it brand new and have not had any major issues with car. Kept maintenance up on car including the timing belt oil changes and other maintenance requirements. Now car is over 200, 000 miles and still going strong.

- Melissa M

2005 Hyundai Elantra GT 4-door hatchback.

The Elantra, or elah, as my family calls it, is a four-door hatchback, red vehicle. We think it is a little speed demon; it has a tendency to slip to 65 when you are at 60. There is no radio in ours; it was taken out by the previous owner. The heat and ac work extremely well.

- Augustus G

Tan, used 2005 Hyundai Elantra.

Since I have had it this long, the bottom is very rusted and needs repaired. The car is also very small and low to the ground. The radio station is old, but I am sure the newer versions of this car have are better equipped. I do like it, I just wish I had the newer version.

- Allie Z

Old car is decently comfy.

My vehicle is old faithful to me. It gets me from point a to point j with minimal problems and only requires average maintenance. It is awesome and has everything I ask for in a vehicle. Air conditioning works, radio works, and is cloth seating so I do not get super sweaty.

- Tania F

Gold Hyundai is just alright.

My car has a slight shudder, is great on gas. The interior is grey cloth with some stains. The sound system works okay, sometimes the CD player will spit the CDs back out a few times. It is gold and has a couple dents. Has a repaired front left arm, no hubcaps included.

- Tania F

Very reliable, only requires normal maintenance such as oil and filter, belts, hoses, brakes and tires.

Very reliable car, only problem I have had is radiator cracked after 9 years and 10 months but it was still under warranty and was replaced free along with free rental car for 3 days that the car was in the shop. Excellent performance - very quick and handles very well.

- Tim M

Buy a Hyundai great car to own.

My Hyundai is a great car. It may be old but it still runs great. It's good on gas and I've had to do very little repairs on it. I bought it used but I've been very satisfied with it. I do not have very many miles on it considering I've had it for twelve years.

- Judy E

Good car for someone who does not make a lot of money, gas mileage is great.

Very reliable car, the gas mileage is very good as well. Not the fastest car, but it is dependable, and very budget friendly. Good starter car, good economy car. Lumbar support is a nice feature, comfortable to sit in driver's seat. Standard dashboard features.

- Michael D

After 13 ;years this car is holding up well. The previous owner must have take good care of it. Next summer I may have the AC improved, but we are managing well this year.

This car was (is) in excellent condition when I bought it. My only reservation is that is not a Buick, which is what I last owned. The first thing I noticed was how lightweight the trunk closure was. Also, I feel the bumps more in this car. Otherwise, fine.

- Joan S

Great commuting car for students and people who are looking for a reliable and cheap car.

My car has enough space for myself to do the activities that I do such as camping. It runs very well even with close to 200K miles. My complaints are that it could have more power because merging onto the freeway can be a problem. It also could have more MPGs.

- Justin P

Easy to maintain car. With regular check ups, this car is very reliable.

My car is very reliable, great gas mileage, performance is good. Easy to maintain, with regular oil and fluid check ups, my car runs great. Plenty of room. Recently I was diagnosed with arthritis in hip, which make it hard to get in and out. Pillows help that.

- Harris H

I like my car will buy another when the time comes.

My car is very reliable. It is comfortable to ride in and drive. Have not had any issues with it at all in the 2 years I have had it. I will probably but another Elantra when I am in the market for a new to me car. I can not think of anything else to say.

- Pam S

Used 2005 Hyundai Elantra

I've only owned it for a month but so far I like it. Four doors with enough room for a car seat. Mine has a tape deck which I love but no warning sound for headlights being left on. It does automatically shut them off after a certain amount of time.

- Laryssa M

It has been pretty good to me.

It has not really had any major issues. I just recently had to fix a power steering leak. When I got it several years ago I got it used and there was a rattling sound when braking, and it still happens now. Never found out what the cause was.

- Alicia T

Good gas car, and very cheap to fill up.

Really comfortable car, extremely good on gas, haven't had any issues with the engine or transmission. Has been super good to me. Also a very easy car to work on if you need anything done to it but not much goes wrong with the car at all.

- Adam R

It is a dependable car, and I would recommend to people.

We bought our Hyundai second hand from my in laws after our Toyota was totaled. It has close to 100,000 miles on it, and it still runs great. It gets great gas mileage, and so far it hasn't needed any major repairs. We are happy with it.

- Chris J

Hyundai Elantra hatchback. . I really enjoy the sunroof.

This is a really good car. This car has a hatchback and four doors. . It's quite while driving and fuel efficient. Although I haven't had it long enough to tell you about snow conditions I can tell you is that all in all its a good car.

- Nikki A

My Hyundai Elantra is very reliable.

There is really no problems, just normal wear and tear. It performs great, easy to handle, gets decent gas mileage, and it is a really comfortable ride. It is also pretty roomy, I can actually fit 3 car seats in the backseat.

- Denise S

It has good safety features driver and passenger airbags.

It handles really well and is fun to drive. It looks sporty and gets great gas mileage. Drove it on a 500 mile trip in early summer and it was comfortable for both driver and passenger for the several hours a day in the car.

- Robert B

Drives like a dream, no problems. . .

I just purchased the Hyundai Elantra about two months ago, it was a used car with about 68, 000 miles, and as far as loving the car. . . The car drives like a dream. . . Very easy to handle, no problems, it is great. . .

- Linda V

Packs a lot of value into reasonable price.

I like the way it drives. I like that it packs a lot of value into a reasonable price. I like that it doesn't require a lot of upkeep. I don't like that it doesn't have current technology found in more recent models.

- Jonathan K

It is the type of car you'll have for years and will not run out on you.

There are absolutely no complaints about my car. Accelerator is very smooth and often you feel like you are racing through the highways. It has ran a good few years with me and I have had very minimal problems none.

- Genesis O

My Hyundai Elantra has been reliable and faithful for over 13 years!

I have driven this car for 13 years, wow! While it's old and has a lot of miles on it, it's been faithful with little to no problems. There is really no complaints from me. I'd buy another one in a heartbeat.

- Erin M

Classic, long-lasting, family friendly sedan. Perfect for the long haul

It has decent fuel efficiency, and a really cold air conditioner. There is a lot of room in both front and back seats, as well as the trunk, but the car is still a very manageable size. No complaints!

- Lindsey A

160, 000 miles and still a great commuter car.

Love Hyundai’s. Older car but still going strong. Biggest complaint is that the paint started chipping around year 9. Would recommend though and would buy another. Also they have great warranties.

- Jen D

It a dependable car that works well for what I need.

It rides smooth. A bit too much road noise. Not really good acceleration. Good smooth braking. Good size trunk fits most all my tools and supplies. Great for running around town good on gas mileage

- Keith O

A tie rod broke while driving down i-95 causing me to crash.

Vehicle was running good until a little after 130, 000 miles then I started having problems with the battery, some belt, transmission is starting to slip and sometimes the radio randomly cuts off.

- Destiny Z

Super car. Would buy again.

It is dependable! Smooth ride, love size, has power to spare. For myself, it meets my needs. Former Toyota Camry owner, its step above the Camry. I will buy Hyundai Elantra next time I buy a car.

- Sue H

Hyundai vehicles are reliable!

Very reliable and has a good engine. My 2005 Elantra does not have all that many special features and is far from high-tech or luxury. But it is still a great car. It is got everything you need.

- Madeline E

It maintains its functionality well beyond 10 years and is a great investment for the price.

I like that it continues to run smoothly after 13 years. It is affordable, easy to maintain, and packs a lot of value in a low price. The acceleration could be better, but it's rarely an issue.

- Timothy J

That it is 13 years old. Hyundais are such dependable cars.

I love that it use to be very dependable. Great mileage, great little car. Just lately car has been breaking down. Needs a new alternator. Still it is paid off and no monthly payments.

- Nancy A

It drives like a dream! I love how I can fit everyone I want in my car.

I like the color black and my car is black.. It is incredibly comfortable and space saving.. My car is fast and efficient in lots of ways.. My car is safe for children and good on gas..

- Pamela M

A bag of cat litter in the trunk I have no issue driving in a Michigan winter.

I get really good gas mileage in my car. I have had to replace pretty much everything on the front axle including cv axle, ball joint, shocks, and the regular brake and rotor changes.

- Nicole M

Once the swing gate breaks off do not try to take the corners as you did.

My car has a sport tuned engine that can really pick up and go. Power windows, CD player, radio and leather seats make this vehicle somewhat updated but not too far behind the times.

- Heather T

It is amazing on gas mileage!

I like that it is really good on gas. I like that it is 4 doors since I have a child. I do not like that my car already has a lot of mileage on it. And I wish it had a better radio.

- Sydney B

It is great on gas and mileage. Super great car for a student.

I like that it is reliable and great on gas. It has over 150k miles on it and still drives amazing. It had some tire problems when I got it but that is the only complaint I have.

- Kass S

It's very easy to drive around with it, and it doesn't waste a lot of gas.

It's great because i don't waste too much gas, but there's always something wrong with it, I fix it and days later there's something else going on. I can't seem to get rid of it.

- Maricela H

I've been driving it for almost 13 years and it still works as well as it did on day 1.

My car is old and doesn't have the technological features that vehicles have today. But it's very reliable and easy/inexpensive to maintain. It's a good size and easy to drive.

- Emily M

The Hyundai Elantra is a good daily driver with decent gas mileage.

I like the gas mileage, it is around 31 MPG. I like the fact that it is standard, that's pretty cool. What I don't like is that now that I have 3 kids, they won't all fit.

- Karl S

Reliable... PERIOD! While it might not have a lot of gadgets, it has never shot a hole in my budget with surprise repairs either.

Basic, reliable transportation for the last 12 years. Minimal maintenance costs during that period. A great value. I can only hope it's replacement is as stress free.

- John g

Reliability in all aspects, stylish looks.

I like the quality of the vehicle and that it is still in good condition after so many years. It is very durable and has taking me everywhere without any major problems.

- Caci B

Lots of compartments for storage. Has a huge gas tank so can go very car and/or long ti.es

I have a Hyundai xg350 it's white and 4 doors. It is an automatic transmission no specialty parts all stock with automatic windows and a state of the art alarm system.

- Sunshine B

It is really reliable and has great gas mileage, the perfect car.

It is super reliable, hasn't really had too many issues over the years. I liked the color of the paint: blue. The seats are comfortable and the lumbar is adjustable!

- Nicky R

Its reliable, she works nicely. .

It's easy to drive, but its not updated enough for me, I love the way she fits me when I drive her, I feel like I put too much money into her to work as she should.

- Dan O

The model has a good look.

I don't like my car at all, I was in a hurry with very little money and it was what was available. Hate the color inside and out. Its too small, and just not "me".

- Holly G

Regular maintenance is a must. Make sure that you do the preventative.

It is an older car. It has required so much work that I haven't had to put into my other cars. Perhaps when it was new, it was wonderful but it did not age well.

- Cassandra K

People should know that my car can go pretty fast for it not being a sports car!

The only bad part about my vehicle is the mileage on it but everything runs smoothly and I have yet to have any problems with it. I bought it 2 years ago, used.

- Keegan T

The turning radius is very sharp allowing you to get into tight spaces.

My Elantra has been a very reliable car. No major problems. Gets good gas mileage. Big trunk for the size of the car. Not a lot of legroom if people are tall.

- Brooke V

The low mileage of the car is the one most important thing that people should know about the car.

I like the leather seat as it makes posh. I also like the sizable boot. However, I dislike the cost of insuring the vehicle due to its age and engine size.

- Derek U

Hyundai Elantra hatchback review:

I have had this car for 13 years. It has been great. I love the reliability and features. It has had very few problems and requires basic maintenance.

- Ann F

Solid, family car, dependable. Plenty of room for people and things.

I like how small my car is, I also like its gas mileage & how easy problems are to fix. My least favorite thing it probably how low to the ground it is.

- Destiny D

My Hyundai has been a great little family car that has gotten my through years of my kids' pickups and drop offs as they've grown up.

I like that it's very user-friendly and low maintenance. My only complaint is that I've had some problems with the rear windshield washer fluid lines.

- Andrea V

Dependable and comfortable and really handles road well. It is quite stylish.

It has a lot of different features and shows that it is something that most people will not cover. It is interesting as has great values and benefits.

- Travis O

Great mileage. Seats 5 comfortable. Keep up on maintenance and good to go.

Reliable. Didn't pay much for used car. Gets me where I need to be. Good gas mileage. Paint is wearing off but just want to get where I need to be..

- Helen K

She is reliable and I suspect she will be for many more years to come.

I love everything about it, I purchased used. It is manual and the color is perfect! It gets me where I need to go and has always been well running.

- Steph H

It is very reliable and fun to drive

It has been a very solid car overall. I bought it new 13 years ago and has been reliable. I particularly liked the warranty I got with the purchase.

- Jerry H

13 years old and still runs great!

It's a great car! 13 years old.. runs great, the usual repairs... and a new transmission after 12 years.. really not to bad. great gas mileage....

- Robin R

Great fuel mileage, plenty of room and makes for a comfy ride

This has been a great car. Bought new in 2005 and have had no major mechanical issues at all. Will be shopping this brand for a future purchase.

- Angela N

From the first time I got my car it's driven exactly how I wanted it to.

The only thing wrong performance wise, is I need a new catalytic converter and a coil pack. Other than that it runs great, just a few minor bugs.

- Keeven W

It has a good warranty and is easy to drive.

I have never had any real problems with my car. It is comfortable to drive and has nice features. This is my second Hyundai and I really like it.

- Robyn G

The Elantra has a lot of good features like the comfortable seats or the nice sound system.

I've had my Elantra for 13 years and it has never broke down. It basically has 200k miles on it and I think it's going to have more and survive.

- Alex R

The Hyundai is a very dependable car.

It gets great gas mileage. It has been very reliable, and so far has needed minimal repairs. It's a very comfortable car, and pleasant to drive.

- Mindy B

Kind of basic but gets the job done.

I'm not a big fan of the 2005 elantra model, it is a little ordinary. But it gets the job done and it doesn't give a lot of mechanical problems.

- Desiree G

Great all around car. No problems whatsoever.

No problems. All around great car. It gets awesome gas mileage, drives very well, and goes pretty fast. I really have no complaints whatsoever.

- Kate G

It is built to last but if you did need repairs, it is pretty cheap.

I like that it is compact and zippy and runs well for being as old as it is. I do not like that it is boring and the gas mileage is not great.

- Jennifer K

It gets very good gas mileage

I enjoy my Hyundai Elantra, although the breaks have seemed to have strange wear on them, I also have noticed the alignment is easily altered.
