2008 Hyundai Elantra User Reviews
- $7,513 - $8,888
- No trim specified for this review
- XM, voice activated bluetooth handsfree system, fairly roomy, lots of toys for the buck
- no power seats (why?), telescopic steering wheel could come out more, factory tint isn't dark enough
Purchased As New
The model I have has every toy and feature Hyundai offered and they are a lot of them for the price.
The interior leather is not bad, and it meshes nicely with the plastic trim. Steering wheel controls are nice, except it's missing a mute button. Lot's of storage for the size, good cupholder placement, good lighting and mirrors. Aux dock for MP3 players, 2 power outlets/cig lighters. Why didn't Hyundai throw power seats on this? That bugs me.
Everyone says this is a compact car but it is a lot closer to a mid-size in my opinion.
I downgraded from a big v6 with a supercharger, so I had to get used to a slower car... it's not as bad as I thought it would be. This does have DOHC and it seems quicker than the new Malibu's that I tested.
The engine has a somewhat hard time accelerating 45mph and up, and it gets a little loud at freeway speeds. But, this could be just me being used to the previous car's powertrain.
Exterior is fairly plain even with the chrome and sunroof. The wheels are nice (5 spoke has always been my preference) and not too flashy.
I've tested ESC, TCS, ABS, and electronic steering and so far it has handled everything I have thrown at it, both on the freeway and in the city. Tire pressure monitoring system is nice, never had that before.
For all you get in creature comforts, fun gadgets, warranty, and value I am happy.
