Hyundai Elantra Ranked #9 by Owners

Expert Review

By Kelley Blue Book Editorial Staff

You'll Like The 2008 Hyundai Elantra If...

You'll like this car if high mileage is a must and regular is your gasoline of choice; its 25/33 city/highway EPA fuel economy numbers trump the Volkswagen Rabbit's, for example. If safe...

Old car works to full strength.

My car works well, it is just old. It never has problems, it has never broken down on me. The only thing that is bad is how sensitive the gas pedal is. I think the car is relatively comfortable. The seats are comfy, but there is not much room in the back seat, even with the seat up almost all the way. I like that it can use an AUX cord to play music, and I like that it gets all of my radio stations that I like to listen to and that I can save 12 stations at once. It has ample room in the front for the passenger.

The Hyundai Elantra and why you should consider buying it.

My vehicles problems include: hard to start after filling up, sits very low to the ground, has bad tire grip, and the sun visors are broken. The performance is amazing, it can cost for ever and has very good gas economy for its year (I get around 34 mpg but I drive to save gas mileage. ) It is pretty reliable but has difficulty in the snow and hard rain. It is very comfortable other than the fact that it sits low to the ground, and I am 6'4" so this is hard for me. It is a basic car with basic features.

- Benjamin E

Hyundai Elantra: a small but spacious efficient car.

The vehicle is incredibly reliable. My family and I have had it for 10 years and it has not given us any true problems. The door handle has come off a couple times but that is easily put back on without huge cost. It gets really good gas mileage which is good for me because my current job has me driving 30 miles each way as a commute. It is a small car but it is quite spacious. My family and I are all tall people (the shortest one of us is 5'9) and we can all fit in comfortably.
