reliable sedan, good storage and gas mileage.

2006 Hyundai Elantra GLS

I like the small turn radius, because I lose my way often, and have to make lots of u-turns. I like the gas mileage, since I drive for my job. The clutch has had to be replaced already, and a few other things have gone wrong, but overall a very reliable car that I would recommend to anyone. The backseat is large enough for adults, and the trunk is larger than it looks. I love that the front seats are slightly wider than other vehicles ( since I'm slightly wider than other people). I really like the lack of distractions on the dashboard, just the rpm/speed/gas/engine temp indicators. No screens or random buttons.

2006 Hyundai Elantra Review - It's a good car!

2006 Hyundai Elantra GLS

I think my car is very reliable, it makes me very happy as it was given to me by my grandmother and I have had it over nearly 10 years. I have not had any major issues other than the air conditioning going out on me multiple times in the heat of the summer. Providing you do regular standard maintenance the car runs very well, gets great gas mileage especially for its age and is a very comfortable car. Only other downside being it does not have any type of audio jack to hook up your phone for music, so you will have to retrofit or find alternate solution.

- Diana K

Very reliable and comfortable.

2006 Hyundai Elantra GLS

The most common problem with this car is the flex pipe rust out but it is an easy and relatively inexpensive fix. I have not had any other problems with this car. I love the way it handles. It is very reliable and has never let me down. I find it comfortable to drive even for long trips, it has really good gas mileage as well. It is a compact car but I can still fit my great Dane in the backseat. This is actually my second Hyundai Elantra I have owned. I would definitely recommend this vehicle to anyone looking for a new car.

Nice peppy economical car.

2006 Hyundai Elantra GLS

We have a 2006 Elantra. Nothing fancy but very dependable. The car is very economical and drives like a little sports car. Basic stereo system that gets the job done. Plenty of room in front but not so much in the back. No problems with this vehicle. But like any if you maintain them they last. The alarm that comes with the car works great but sounds like a little bird when setting. The ac blows cold and strong which is nice. So the only downfall would be legroom in the back. Overall a great spunky little car.

- Donald D

Is terrible material, the interior is ugly, outside looks a.

2006 Hyundai Elantra GLS

Is good but is too cheap and always have something, with the air condition or engine or the belt always have a problem, but the car is no bad but the material is really bad if you have a accident that car do not protect you at all. My car is too tall and is terrible for the snow because the tires are terrible but I have to changed for something else this is something that I have to say for people that need information or review about this car.

Hyundai Elantra, solid car

2006 Hyundai Elantra GLS

My Elantra has been quite reliable. I haven't had any major mechanical problems, aside from what's to be expected since it has almost 170K miles on it now. Some small issues with the electronics, but that's been more of an annoyance than anything. It's comfortable and easy enough to drive, nothing special. I do wish it had higher clearance - steeply ramped driveways are a problem.

- Rachel S

Nice car. Not fancy but does what it needs to do

2006 Hyundai Elantra GLS

So far I like my car. It gets good gas mileage (around 22 in the city and 30 on the highway) and it is easy to drive. Super easy to park and feels pretty zippy when just driving around. Not a ton of leg room because its so small but otherwise pretty comfy. Overall a nice basic commuter car. Nothing fancy but it works for what we need.

- Rowan R

Good car but some issues!

2006 Hyundai Elantra GLS

I bout this vehicle about a year ago. It has been holding up but I've been experiencing some problems with my alternator belt. It has blown off twice and they aren't very cheap to replace, because of labor cost for the mechanic. The position of the alternator is in a bad spot, it's located near the passenger side of the vehicle.

- Justin A

My vehicle is reliable and cheap and oldie but classic vehicle.

2006 Hyundai Elantra GLS

My car is very reliable. I have had it for over a year and it has not given me many problems. The breaks work well and I spend about $30 a week in gas which is not bad for all the traveling I do. However, because it is an older version I have been having problems with the trunk not opening and the doors.

Longevity of a Hyundai Elantra.

2006 Hyundai Elantra GLS

Due to the fact that my car is 13 years old I have to say I am grateful it is still running and has cause me minimal motor related issues. Only normal wear and tear or accidental damage has caused any real concern esthetically. Brakes, oil changes, & tune ups are considered normal wear & tear.

- Nicole H

Small comfortable form of transportation.

2006 Hyundai Elantra GLS

It is a 2006 Hyundai Elantra hatchback. It takes very little to fill the tank. Very comfortable with 23 miles to the gallon. The vehicle does not take long to warm up. Has leather seats that are able to be reclined. It uses little gas when accelerating with tires that are very durable . .

Very Dependable - Great Car

2006 Hyundai Elantra GLS

I purchased my 2006 Hyundai brand new. It's been very reliable. The only 'major' issue I've had with the car is the air conditioning unit died, but that was at 170,000 miles. Other than that, only normal wear and tear has happened with the car. Considering purchasing another Hyundai.

- Terry C

The vehicle is a manual which is old school and still fun to drive.

2006 Hyundai Elantra GLS

Manifold gasket is acting up but it is extremely difficult to get to so even though the replacement part is cheap the labor is not even close to being so. Other than that the vehicle has been a good vehicle for just getting from short distances of point a to point b.

Manual 2012 VW bug review

2006 Hyundai Elantra GLS

Love my beetle since it's manual I feel like I have more control and I like that's it's a turbo as well. The drive is smooth and the seat warmers are perfect for the winter time. Very reliable as well as good gas mileage. Does not have a sunroof but that's ok

- Meg L

My reliable average little car

2006 Hyundai Elantra GLS

My Elantra is a very good stable reliable workhorse of a car. It seems to take care of me even when my funds are low. The comfort of the car is very average. It is neither comfortable or uncomfortable. It is a very good little car as far as cars go through.
