Small, Affordable Car with Spacious Interior and Good Reliability

2014 Hyundai Elantra SE

The Elantra is a very comfortable car to drive, and easier to see out of than you would think considering the small-seeming back window. The interior is designed in such a way that you feel like you're driving a much bigger car. (The pros being that you have a lot of room, the cons(?) being that you're more careful parking or changing lanes than you probably have to be.) I've driven mine for about 5 years and the electronics still work well. The seats are also pretty easy to clean with a store-bought seat cleaner. I haven't had any major issues with the engine or other vital components, but have kept up with regular maintenance on the car. The biggest downsides I've seen are the road noise and the suspension. It's quite loud when you're driving on the highway, and while I haven't blown out a tire, the car does not handle potholes or rough roads smoothly. If you're driving through an area with a lot of bumps at a high speed, you're likely to feel anxiety that the car will be damaged or a tire will blow out. Again, with regular maintenance I haven't had issues, but it's not a smooth ride over any kind of rough roads. The trunk is a bit small if you're planning to haul lots of things, but that's a minor concern. In general, the car gets good gas mileage in-city (up to 40 mi per gallon on the highway) and is an affordable, reliable vehicle.

A few quirks, but highly recommend

2014 Hyundai Elantra SE

the performance of the car is actually pretty decent, other than when I have my air on in the summertime and I try to accelerate (up a hill or on a flat road) it tends to be slow at first. As soon as I shut the air off it picks up speed as it should've when I first tried to accelerate. I've had the car for five years and the only issue I've had so far other than the 'air acceleration' is a problem where I could be sitting at a red light or in a parking lot and out of nowhere my car starts to 'vibrate'. It doesn't do it all the time, just every once in a while. I absolutely love the color red I chose when purchasing my vehicle. My car isn't equipped with Bluetooth, however, it DOES come with XM radio/ iPod/MP3.. meaning, if you have an iPhone, like myself, you can plug your cord into the little USB slot provided and the music on your phone will play through your speakers/ show up song title / artist on your screen. The car doesn't come with a spare tire which I think is absolutely absurd. Instead, they give you this 'fix a flat' pump kit. If you're interested in purchasing a new Hyundai, my advice to you would be, either order a spare when signing your paperwork, or simply go buy a donut for your car. You'll thank me later.

Compact, safe, and reliable vehicle!

2014 Hyundai Elantra SE

My Hyundai Elantra has been the most reliable vehicle I have leased. I get great gas mileage, and the airbag safety features provide much needed peace of mind. If you prefer to drive manual, there is an option to easily switch from automatic at any time. The large trunk space allows for stocked camping trips or stroller storage and has a 'hideaway' for a spare tire to maximize space usage. Although there's plenty of storage space the car is actually very compact! I love being able to make a quick turn around without doing a three plus point turn! My few complaints are that the car is about 5 years old and the clear coat of paint is already starting to peel off in multiple places, the passenger sun mirror has malfunctioned and no longer properly closes, and the passenger seat fabric seam is starting to unravel on the back of the seats headboard. Overall this is a fantastic car, I would absolutely purchase again! Any issues have been extremely minor compared to other vehicles I have dealt with!

Bright red Hyundai that's just smooth!

2014 Hyundai Elantra SE

My vehicle is pretty high tech and new to say the least. The gas pedal is sensitive so be delicate with it. Honestly all you need to do is tap the gas and you're literally on your way that same second! The air conditioning and heat work efficiently and the two front seats even have butt warmers! There's a touch screen that allows different ways of playing music whether it be the radio, Bluetooth, and aux option and even when you plug in your charger it automatically connects and lets you play your music from there as well! The only thing I don't like about that is that it won't let you turn up the music as high as you can when you're using the Bluetooth option.

Looking for a gas saver? This car is for you

2014 Hyundai Elantra SE

I really enjoy driving this vehicle. With the Eco feature, you save a lot on gas. I can go about a week and a half without having to buy gas when it is on Eco. The car runs smoothly. The steering wheel is easy to maneuver, so sharp and quick turns are no problem. It has an aux connection and also a CD player. I do notice that when accelerating the car tends to lag a bit especially when trying to get to a speed about 50 mph. With this edition as least, it is inconvenient that there is no air vents in the back seats, so the car takes some time to cool down/heat up if you are sitting in the back.

- Topaz R

Long term value, worthy of purchase.'

2014 Hyundai Elantra SE

This vehicle performs excellent, it has a lot of long trip miles due to health issues, but still has 'excellent mile per gallon ''at 31-35 per gallon, it has good motor capacity & it has never needed any garage maintenance outside of normal every 4000 oil changes, I do recommend synthetic oil, which I think helps overall maintenance, the down side, is the paint has peeling in spots, it also has issues with the electric windows, and I'd never want a ceiling window again, after only a year, it was not closing all the way. But otherwise for the value, you can't ask for a better vehicle.

Reasons why I like my car.

2014 Hyundai Elantra SE

I like the way my car is comfortable to drive on long trips. I do not like that it doesn't have the power to climb hills very well. I love the hands free phone and Bluetooth features. The reverse camera makes backing up much easier. I do not like that the car has many blind spots while driving. The car sits low to the ground which makes it easy to take curves. The heated seats work well in the winter as it gets very cold here. The trunk space is sufficient and lowering the back seat gives me extra space for carrying long items.

- Ana H

Relatively comfortable and reliable

2014 Hyundai Elantra SE

My vehicle is the Hyundai Elantra 2014. There's a lot of legroom in the back which is nice. There's also seat warmers in the front and back which is nice. I like how the screen is touch screen, although it's quite small. I like how it has Bluetooth. I don't like the color of my car, which is like a sandy beige color. My car is relatively comfortable. I don't like how much I have to press on the gas pedal to accelerate after about 40 mph.

- Karen L

Great on mileage on gas! Minimum upkeep!! So it is a keeper!!

2014 Hyundai Elantra SE

I love the fact that it is gas-efficient and the upkeep costs minimal. I do not like that it is so small buts what coupe is! So I wish it had more space. It seems as though the brakes wear down pretty quick but still good posts on brake pads and labor for the vehicle. It also does not seem very durable, if I were to get into an accident, damage would be 'totaled' because I feel like I am driving in a tin cup!

- Danielle R

Golden brown beast on wheels.

2014 Hyundai Elantra SE

Feels great to drive and rides smoothly. Occasionally stutters when starting ignition and brake light needs replacing regularly. Spacious interior and very attractive dash setup. I love that I have a sunroof and all four windows go down all the way, so can ride with windows open and fresh air or a/c runs like ice and also blows just as strong as the windows down.

- Alessi K

Very compact but gets amazing gas mileage.

2014 Hyundai Elantra SE

We are a family of 4 and the size of our vehicle is much to small for our comfort. It is especially difficult on road trip. I love the gas mileage! I haven't had any major issues with the vehicle other than the size. We have had to change the cabin filter, windshield wipers, & tires but other then that we have just had to do our regular scheduled oil changes.

- Jamie P

Hyundai Elantra, affordable, nice and a gas saver!

2014 Hyundai Elantra SE

My vehicle was affordable, and it's nice and small. I haven't had any problems with my car. I get the oil change checked every month and it runs smoothly. I save a lot on gas, a full tank will last almost two weeks. It has eco button that helps you save gas, and the cruise control is helpful. Doesn't have Bluetooth, that would have made this car perfect.

- Angela S

The car is well worth the money

2014 Hyundai Elantra SE

I love my car. It is just the right size inside and yet small enough to make it easy to handle. I also have a spoiler that really spiffs it up. I have had no major engine problems except having to change the starter. I have 150,000 miles on it and still have the original brake pads. The required maintenance is kind of pricey but the car sure runs well.

- Rebecca C

My vehicle is black and has no spoiler.

2014 Hyundai Elantra SE

Right now I have a low level of steering wheel fluid but I am going for a tune up this weekend to top it up. Other than that it is great. I also have foggy windows in the winter when I have the heat on. All Hyundais do sadly. I will be buying a new make next time I buy a car. I have 80k miles and am having a lot of problems sadly as well.

- Ashley K

The sound system it came with was not bad. And I like the heated seats.

2014 Hyundai Elantra SE

Great little commuter car. Ok in the snow. Tires are everything. Small and great in gas. Reliability is definitely there and they did a good job with the space in the interior of the car. In the rain it is a little light and speed reduction is needed so you do not hydroplane. All around a good little car that will last for years to come.

- Sam D

Looks nice, but made with the best material?

2014 Hyundai Elantra SE

The car is a decent size. Roomy. The trunk is fairly deep which is always a plus. That being said, within the first couple of months, I had to replace shocks and struts. After replacing them, I had to replace them with the dealership again only a few months later. I am not off-roading with my vehicle. It was frustrating to say the least.

- Kate P

Hyundai Elantra 2014, great car

2014 Hyundai Elantra SE

The car Needs its oil changed often. It's very great on gas mileage, very reliable. The car rides very smooth and quiet. Car has many useful features I enjoy. I love the set up of the car. Speakers could use some improvement. Steering wheel and drivers seat are adjustable which is very convenient for shorter people like me

- Lauren C

Great ride needs a few tweaks.

2014 Hyundai Elantra SE

Overall it is a very nice car, it rides nicely and I love the heated seats. The biggest issue is I like to sit high up and when I put the seat high, I cannot move the sun visor and feel too close to the roof of the car. Not sure if it was an uniformed salesman or? But the USB plug does not work for the iPhone 5 or 8.

- Rachel D

Efficient and Elegant Elantra

2014 Hyundai Elantra SE

The Hyundai Elantra is a highly reliable vehicle. Great fuel efficiency and comfort. I love the cloth interior and the auxiliary features in the vehicle and after 5 years it is still performing like new with the standard upkeep. Highly recommend this car if you are looking for something that will last for years

- Andrew B

Great car all around!! Recommend to all types of people!

2014 Hyundai Elantra SE

It's great in performance and reliability but comfort is just average. Haven't had too many vehicle problems. Just the normal stuff. I love my Elantra and would recommend it to anyone and everyone!! It's great for families with kids or no kids! I love the hands free Bluetooth capability too! It's a must have!

- Crystal M

Reliability of my Hyundai

2014 Hyundai Elantra SE

I love driving my Elantra the car gets great gas mileage so I save money on that which is nice for a college student. I've been able to comfortably drive 9 hours to and from school and home and not have to worry about my safety in the car. I would definitely recommend Hyundai to any of my friends and family.

- Casey J

Hyundai Elantra 2014!- great gas mileage

2014 Hyundai Elantra SE

The performance of the car has been wonderful and it is very comfortable to drive. I like the visibility out the windshield. And the only issue I've had is the battery died very early on. However, no other issues. I like the car very much and I would recommend it. The gas mileage in the car is phenomenal.

- Hannah K

My 2014 Hyundai Elantra.

2014 Hyundai Elantra SE

The breaks have issues, as well the heat and air conditioning in it. During the summer, the air conditioning often doesn't work, and during the winter the heat sometimes doesn't. It also accelerates somewhat slowly and extremely loudly. Overall, I don't feel like it's very reliable and overall enjoyable.

- Kennedy S

A great car for travel, it has a lot of room for a small car,

2014 Hyundai Elantra SE

Great gas mileage,love all the bells and whistles. It has great pick up and go. The car drives very well, I have been on 600 mile trips a lot, with no problems. The trunk is huge, the only bad thing is that it came with no spare tire. It takes curves very good, and has a lot of speed.

- keith H

I like the gas mileage and the ability to put in eco mode.

2014 Hyundai Elantra SE

I love my car, but once purchased I had a few maintenance issues such as brakes, car jerking, lights needing to be replaced etc. The lights were more on the dealerships end due to them providing the car but the brakes and jerking could possibly be from a defect in the car as well.

- Maya E

Good car to own and buy now!

2014 Hyundai Elantra SE

Rarely needs repairs. Good steering ratio. Sporty. Safe. Good brakes and mileage. Big size trunk. Very easy to parallel park and park in small spaces. Not fond of upholstery rather have leather. Side view mirrors work well. Trunk hold several suitcases and room for more items.

- Leslie P

Compact and Affordable Car!

2014 Hyundai Elantra SE

All together the Hyundai Elantra is a great car. It's easy on gas and holds up pretty well on all roads. It's really just too small for my taste, especially when it comes to putting a car seat in the back seat. I would recommend it to a childless couple or empty nester!

- Brandi C

The seats recline all the way down. Seat raiser. Spacious.

2014 Hyundai Elantra SE

Super nice. Drives really well. Has different modes. Comfortable seating. Good compartments. Great trunk you could definitely fit a lot. Pull out cup holder. Easy to clean. Spacious. Adjustable seating. Front seats recline all the way back. Comfortable back seats

- Isabel C

Hyundai Elantra - my best car purchase, yet.

2014 Hyundai Elantra SE

My Elantra is extremely economical. Its mpg is great for longer trips and around town errands. The maintenance is affordable and surprisingly minimal. With my family growing, I'll most likely be buying a larger car, but I will still be sticking to a Hyundai.

- Rebecca R

A good car for the long haul!

2014 Hyundai Elantra SE

Car runs very smoothly and has a lot of helpful features. We have had the car for a few years and have run into minimal to no issues. We plan on keeping it for as long as we can! We would probably get the same vehicle but a newer model if we had the option.

- Rachel F

Ok overall, good family car

2014 Hyundai Elantra SE

The air conditioning was dripping into the car on the passenger side so that had to be fixed. Sometimes the lights don't go out even though they're set to automatic. Overall, though, it's a good car. It's my second Hyundai and I'd probably by another one.

- Marcy C

Reliable and Looks Expensive

2014 Hyundai Elantra SE

I commute daily for work and get an average of 36 miles to the gallon. I feel confident that my Elantra will get me to work without any breakdowns. The comfortable seats are great even in the back. There is plenty of legroom for adults to ride in comfort.

- Deborah W

My black 2014 Hyundai Elantra se.

2014 Hyundai Elantra SE

Very reliable. I haven't had any problems with the vehicle what so ever. It does concern me that it has no spare tire. I am not sure if I can figure out how to fix a flat on the road, if need be. I would consider buying another one like it in the future.
