2006 Hyundai Elantra User Reviews
GLS 4-Door shown
- $4,920 - $5,559
- No trim specified for this review
- Good fuel economy. Very reliable. Great handling.
- The CD player has been temperamental
I've had this car for more than 10 years and have put 179,000 miles on it. I have stuck relatively few $$ in it for repairs and replacements. It's only recently that I've had to replace the alternator (it was the original) for example.
It still looks great too. My Toyota Corolla was also a very reliable car, but that thing rusted out (I actually could see the road under my feet at one point) faster; it just wasn't as attractive.
My few complaints would be about the defroster and the CD player. I don't know how they defrost in Korea, but it's not working here; I have to turn on the air conditioner every time - in winter - to get my windshield defrosted. As for the CD player, it's been difficult to figure out how to work it. In addition, it's been getting really temperamental over time and now has decided not to play at all when the temperature outside dips below a certain point. 'Very annoying when you're looking forward to a nice long drive filled with music (the sound system itself is pretty good).
Important winter points: handles very well in ice and snow as long as the tires are in good shape. Also it ALWAYS starts up immediately (unless I forgot to turn my lights off and had them on all night...).
I like this car and I suppose I will buy another Hyundai when this one finally kicks the bucket. I bought this one brand new and I'm glad I did; it may have depreciated, but I got my money's worth anyway.
