Still reliable after all these years.

This vehicle has been very reliable and is quite comfortable. There has been very little maintenance in the over five years that I have owned the vehicle. The only problems I have encountered is that the built-in navigation is quite poor and hard to utilize. Also, on very sunny days, the backup camera can get quite a significant glare, rendering it nearly useless. Otherwise, the interior is very comfortable and the can comes with personalized zones for air conditioning, heat and music. The heated seats during the winter are a real plus and heat up quickly. I find acceleration and response time to be quite nice and the drive is very smooth. Also, the storage space is more than adequate for groceries or even the occasional run for a larger item. Overall, I would highly recommend this vehicle and will purchase another when it comes to buying a new car.

Will never buy a Hyundai again

I have had nothing but issues with this car. The hood switch sucks and constantly sets off the car alarm at all hours. I will now have to replace it as I was putting a pad under the hood bumper to stop it, but that does not work anymore. I took it in for an oil change and the idiot at the shop said "Oh your car is burning oil, so you need a new engine." After taking it in for a second opinion, the other guy said that oil burning off is a known thing for this car and i did not have to replace the engine. At times, my car won't start at all, and I have to really bang on the shifter so that the car knows it is in park. I have never had so many stupid little issues with a car in my life. I have also taken it in twice for recall stuff. I just really don't like the car. I will avoid Hyundai models in the future.

Sleek and spacious: the 2013 Hyundai Elantra.

I love my car! It has a very sleek design and will look new even when it is 10 years old. It had the highest safety rating in 2013, and one of the best gas mileages of 2013. Which is why I can fuel up once every 1. 5 weeks. I wanted a car that was practical, so it does not have all of the bells and whistles, as some of the other 2013 Elantra. My features are basic. I have a basic radio (no touchscreen) and dials for the air. However, it still is very functional. The interior of the car is very spacious, including the seats in the back. The one downside I have noticed with my car is that it can be difficult to drive through a few inches of snow going slowly uphill. It is very light, which is great! But it is a little too light and I can struggle at times. Overall, I love my car and would buy it again.
