2007 HYUNDAI ELANTRA
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.

2013 HYUNDAI ELANTRA
Great looking coupe. Hopefully reliable in the long run. Was looking for a newer car for my son going to first year of college and he wanted a coupe. Most Elantras's are sedans so not too easy to find. Took a chance on my first Korean make so hope made a good choice. Long time auto buff having owned several collector cars through the years. Still have three of such but don't keep up or really get too excited about current everyday cars anymore to be honest. This car seems pretty good though.

2012 HYUNDAI ELANTRA
I like the way it looks, the feel of driving it, and its quick responsiveness. Wish the numbers on the speedometer were marked so they were a little easier to read. Everyone complains about the head rests on their cars, regardless of make or model. The head rests just push the head forward a little too much. My friends feel the same way about their car headrests. Just an inch or and inch and a half would feel better, and I can't believe it would effect the safety. Would definitely buy my car again.
2011 HYUNDAI ELANTRA
This has been an exceptional car. The EPA is average at 7.1 per 100 litres. It has lots of pep with the 1.8 engine. Very roomy for such a vehicle Seats are comfortable and both front seats are heated. Has numerous features not usually in a car of this price. Very satisfied.

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.
