I bought this car for my daughter so she could get back and forth to work. The car had had only one owner and had the records for all the services. The owner had put new winter tires on, so for $1900.00 this car was a bargain.

Love the car! Needed a replacement for my 2003 Saturn ION2. Used for every day needs and longer trips.

Bought it for my son to get him to college in Gainesville. Good gas mileage. :)

I bought this car to do better on gas I bought this car to do better with gas. I drive this car daily with multiple starts considering I'm a pizza delivery girl. I bought the car 3 weeks ago with 152,xxx miles and it just hit 156k. My only complaint about this car is the leather seats. The leather even after treatment is very hard and tears easily. I have gotten 3 big tears in my drivers seat in the 3 weeks. I've never had this issue with any of my other cars that had leather. Other than that this car is great! It's light turns very easy and handles well. I average 35-37mpg. Thames me $25 to fill up from light on.

Used Hyundai Elantra Information

The Hyundai Elantra has historically been small player in the compact car segment competing with larger rivals like the Toyota Corolla and Honda Civic. This was until it blew the doors off the competition when its 5th Generation was unveiled at the 2010 LA Auto Show. The new design, new engine and improved fuel economy drove sales to a 41 percent increase in 2011 (186,361 units).

Most used Hyundai Elantra shoppers will likely be looking at older models of the 5th Generation model. There are some older, used Elantras out there, but the vast majority are the latest generation.

For the 5th Generation, Hyundai is offering the Elantra in three trims: SE, Limited and Sport trim levels. The SE and Limited will be powered by a 1.8-L mated to six-speed transmission. For the Sport, it gets a larger 2.0-L four cylinder with a manual transmission.

One of the big controversies with the Elantra was over its stated fuel economy. Hyundai, at the time, says it gets an EPA estimated 29 city/40 hwy. These figures were later revised to 28 city/38 hwy after a series of testing errors were discovered in November 2012. Ultimately, several news outlets tested the vehicles and found they got better than the EPA estimates.

Whether it gets 29 or 28 MPG in the city are small issues when considering a used Elantra. The 5th Generation of the vehicle is a solid, reliable used car. Older, 4th Generation vehicles (2007-2010) are also known as being highly reliable vehicles. The big change from the older vehicles was a less powerful engine and less speeds on the transmission (5 and 4 speed).

Overall, the Hyundai Elantra has often been a forgotten rival to the more well-known Camry and Civic, yet it is just as capable and reliable.

Carfax currently has 27,069 used Hyundai Elantras, 86% with no previously reported accidents. At the moment the average price is $17,634, while 88% have service records and 58% have had only one previous owner. You’ll also be able to find plenty of vehicles with Heated Seats, Handsfree/Bluetooth Integration and Keyless Entry.
