Classic 2009 Hyundai Elantra

2009 Hyundai Elantra SE

The 2009 Hyundai Elantra SE has provided strong lasting reliability in regards to fuel efficiency covering long distance miles. The Elantra has been fantastically manufactured to withstand great duration of time with little to no maintenance; although always recommended. The parts are simple to install and easy to find throughout the majority of auto parts retailers. The standard cloth interior version of this vehicle will stain and can be detailed with upholstery cleaner. Up to 4 passenger could ride comfortably and safely. For passenger 6'0' or taller may find challenges with comfortable leg space. During long distance rides a reduced number of passengers may be a factor for taller travelers for comfort reasons. Features include the Satellite Radio feature that can be purchased via monthly membership payment plan.

Hyundai Elantra Review - Extreme Traveler Edition

2009 Hyundai Elantra SE

I purchased my Hyundai Elantra used in 2013. I purchased based on size and comfort of the vehicle. I was traveling nearly 120 miles per day, so a smaller, yet comfortable, vehicle was needed. You can comfortably fit 4 adults in the vehicle, 5 would be a tight ride, but it is doable. I haven't had performance issues with the vehicle while traveling. The only issue I have had is that the airbag light on the dash has been on for over a year, yet no issues with the airbags have been found. The only feature I wish this vehicle had is Bluetooth due to the amount of travel and phone time.

My Thoughts on the 2009 Hyundai Elantra SE

2009 Hyundai Elantra SE

Just recently fixed an issue with the steering coupler: apparently an issue that occurs with Hyundais often. Performance is great, I got the car from CarMax in 2017 with about 54K miles, and now have 88K. Prominent features of the car include power steering, power windows, and automatic transmission. I've had to replace the windshield wipers and coolant in the AC a few times. The car's stock tires wore out pretty fast, and during colder months, my tire pressure has a mind of its own.

My Hyundai has a very interesting color of blue and back seats lay down

2009 Hyundai Elantra SE

The car is very reliable I got it used last year and other than a few minor details it's a great running car.I would take this car across country. It gets great gas mileage. My kids are too close together in backseat it is a smaller car.it's very comfortable ride and can see the road well.I'm 5'6 and I'm reaching my son's feet tho and he's only three.I have CD player automatic windows lots of trunk space small quiet engine. Add tinted windows and it be perfect

Great Option for Young Adult: Clean, Reliable, & Drives Nice

2009 Hyundai Elantra SE

Overall, I am happy with this car for the price I paid. It gets around 25 mpg and has a 13 gallon tank. The car drives nice and seems to hold up well. The only real problem I have had with my car is a faulty rear passenger door handle. I have a very basic model' cloth seats, basic radio, no sunroof, etc. I bought it as a commuter for college and am very satisfied with it.

My Hyundai Elantra 2009- runs but issues.

2009 Hyundai Elantra SE

The car has a lot of mechanical issues. It stalls out sometimes and it makes sounds. I had the alternator replaced recently and it only has just over 100k miles on it. The radio also recently broke. The wiring must have a problem. I replaced the fuses and it still will not work. I read on reviews that it has issues and I will probably be buying a new one.

Great on gas and mileage while traveling

2009 Hyundai Elantra SE

I love my car it's so reliable and great on gas mileage and I love the fact it just enough room for my kids and I and my sisters kids whenever we are ready to go somewhere. It had wonderful tires and durable seat belts. When we go on long rides we always prefer to drive my car

Great reliable Hyundai Elantra

2009 Hyundai Elantra SE

I don't really have any issues with my vehicle. It has been a great back and forth from home to work vehicle. If I could change anything I would prefer a 5-speed vehicle to the automatic. The dependability of this vehicle is top-notch. I would recommend this vehicle to anyone.

Great reliable little vehicle!

2009 Hyundai Elantra SE

This car is very reliable - I have done nothing more than routine maintenance and it has never required a major repair. I have nearly 140,000 miles on it so far. The seats are not the most comfortable, but I added a lumbar support and that did the trick. I love this car.
