2005 Hyundai Elantra
There are 17 user reviews for the GT 5-Door trim shown below
- Fuel economy, Features, Warrenty, Room for stuff, Breaking, Stock tires, too much to list
- Lil low on passing power but it has enough to get job done
I'm a bass player and I can get everything I need in there to do the show and still take a few passengers.
Fuel economy is amazing, I don't know how much I can trust the mpg read on the gauge cluster but it does say in the mid to upper 40s on the highway.
It's comfortable enough. standard features are plentiful
Bought an 02 Grand am (auto trans only) in 02 for $17,500
Bought an 05 Elentra (a whole bunch of features) in 05 for $14,800...read morehide

- Great warranty, fuel economy, extras without extra cost.
- Absolutely none.
Simply the most "bang for the buck" out there. This car meets and exceeds expections of those seriously comparison shopping.

- Good fuel economy, decent mid range acceleration considering engine size, love the control
- Why is it that the GT model doesn't offer a bigger engine over the GLS model?
While I do like my Elantra GT, I still don't understand why Hyundai doesn't have a bigger engine with the GT model. It seems all you get with GT is leather interior (which my friend accidentaly burned, it didn't smell like leather), fog lamps, sun roof, allow wheels, and some other small things. Doesn't seem like much more. But I do like this car. I like when I'm about 40-45 mph and need to get by someone, it kicks up very well, considering its engine. It handles nicely, and takes corners well. The trim is nice, the woodgrain adds a nice touch to the interior, as does the blue lighted gauges, similar to the Jetta. Overall, decent car, except that it doesn't have the power a GT should have....read morehide

- room ,comfort , durability, price
- suspension too soft for my liking
this is my fourth elantra,1998,2001,2004 and now a 2005 ( 2004 was totaled by a tree during a lightning storm). My 1998 I sold with 103k the 2001 with 92k my 2004 was problem free for the first 20k till the tree fell on it and I just picked up a new 2005 Gt hatch, awesome fit finish and style, as with my other elantra's ,the car gets 30+ MPG under most conditions and I will assume it will be trouble free as the 3 cars before....read morehide

- Great storage, roomy interior, good mileage, looks like a Saab
- Wheel barings fail at 40,000 kms, underpowered using A/C, few warning lights on dash.
This a good little car. It can hold a 6' sofa with the seats down. It has lots of little storage areas. Lack of warning lights is annoying. Running completely out of windshield washer with out warning is both annoying, and dangerous. The gas gage does not even have a warning light. Wheel barings burned out at only 40,000kms. Overall it is a good car. It is sporty, and does not feel like your Mother's car. However, when running the air conditioning do not expect both power and air cooling. It is one or the other, not both!!...read morehide

- Excellent fuel economy,handles tight in traffic,warrenty great!!
- perhaps a tad small for a 6ft 4incher
My 2001 Elantra GT has over 117,000 miles on it with NO problems other than standard maintenance. I still get over 30mpg!!! Great deal...though my next Hyundai will be slightly bigger, I'm going for the new Sonata!!!

- Appearance and price
- Feul economy way below estimate, plastic body parts break easily
I bought this this car in 2002 when it first came out. I bought it because of price, driver's leg room, which is substantial and because I liked the way it looked. My biggest disappointment with this car is the fuel economy, or lack of it. It is supposed to get 27/34. In the beginning, doing mostly city driving it got 21.5 mpg. Now, that 95% of my driving is highway, I still can't seem to get above 25.6 mpg. It's rediculous not to be able to reach even the minimum quote! I sure would like to know who puts those false figures out there for the public to get dooped by? (That was a rhetorical question... I do really know who put those figures out there, but that's another discussion!)
Other than that, the seatbelt doesn't pop up back to its original position and before I realized that it was a problem, the driver door jam was broken! There is a hole in the door because the door jam is made out of cheap easily breakable plastic. I brought it into the dealer and showed it to him, thinking it would be covered under warranty. Well, they didn't cover that! I have been drving my entire life and never had a problem with a car like that.
I guess the old saying still rings true.. "You get what you pay for!"...read morehide

- Inexpensive car, decent MPG, good ride, lots of storage
- cockpit is a little sparse, radio controls too small
I like this car. It drives well and gets out of its own way. I traded in my Solara for it and I haven't missed my old car too much. The GT suspension is much tighter than the GLS and the cabin is roomier than most sedans. I'm a tall guy and I can sit comfortably in the back seat. Not much on the creature comforts, mind you, but for under 16K, pretty well stocked....read morehide

- GREAT fuel economy, Peppy 5 speed Manual... what's not to love?
- not a single thing...
Wow! Bang for the buck baby! Solid car, excellent gas mileage.... if I baby it on the highway I can get 40-41 MPG. Overall city and highway combined I am averaging 32-33. Far better than the Super Charged Nissan Frontier that got a measly 15 to 17 MPG. Granted.... it's not turbo, but I don't miss the truck. The Hyundai GT hatchback with the manual trans is the way to go. I test drove an automatic and it wasn't nearly as peppy a performer. Don't hesitate to go out and buy this car, it a great value for the money. Alloys, leather interior, air conditioning, floor mats, cruise, great sound from the cd player - all STANDARD! LOTS of room for hauling people and merchandise. I love it. Got mine in black and just had the windows tinted. Awesome. This is one purchase you won't regret. I see lots of big trucks sitting up for sale now. This hyundai is a winner all the way around....read morehide

- Looks, acceleration, 4-wheel disc brakes,
- vinyl seats, warranty
You might be taken in by 'Americas Best Warranty'; But read this first. I own a 2003 Elantra-GT Hatchback 5-Speed. 20 months and 19K miles later the clutch wore off. If you think warranty would cover it think again: got a call from customer service: After 12 months or 12000 miles your are on your own with clutch problems!
Automatic transmission might be fine, if you are considering 5-speed make sure you will be covered by 'Americas Best Warranty'. There are a lot of 5-speed Tiburon and Elantra owners that had to pay the bill themselves (around $1,000). Don't get burned!...read morehide
