Do Not Buy This Car

My wife and her father bought this car at exactly the same time 2014 brand new. Father in law 200000km motor blew after constant ticking $8000. Wifes car always serviced 130000 ticking told need new motor. This seems to be a regular thing with people in the USA suing Hyundia in class action as they will not admit it is a fault in vechile. Show details

A nice car to drive,but

I really enjoyed my Elantra. I purchased with 29000 on the clock which employed the manual gear box. Nearly 7 years later and the clock now showing 145000 I have just traded. Apart from a clock spring problem which deployed the air bags, I had a very good run. The engine however developed the dreaded ticking sound which only means one thing usually and that means engine replacement. Besides that the car developed steering problems, aircon leak, break light failure, immobilising problem and a new drive train for driver side window. Once you get past 140000 on this model you might as well forget it so the decision to sell was easy. Would I buy Hyundai again, no there is better stuff out there. Show details

Nice looking inside and out

Bought the manual 2012 model 2nd hand with 140,000km. It drives beautifully and looks great (I think). Everything is working nicely and so far have had no issues- we just do the regular services. It has just been used for commuting to work and back, half an hour each way, and a few big road trips to Snowy Mountains. No issues at all. Show details

Not liking it anymore

I use my car for everyday driving. I use my car whenever I go out, however I do have a scrape on my left side of the car and since I got it, I’ve had so many problems with it. I feel like I’ve been ripped off from the car company where I got it from and I’m not going to back there again. I should be getting my car serviced on a regular basis, but I haven’t. I wished I bought a suv instead or a sports car. Now I hate it, it’s not my dream car.

Update: I have found out recently that I can’t modify my car at all, no modern technology or anything. You can’t get this car anymore, discontinued. I’m looking to get a new car with all modern features. My dad will be having my car after I get a new one. Show details

Not a reliable car

I bought my Hyundai Elantra in 2017 and used it for 2 years. It broke down twice in that time period. One with fuel injection issue and other with engine coolant leakage. Both the time it had to be in service centre for almost 2 weeks. I had to sell it as it was not reliable to my expectation.

Loved the features in Elantra, auto headlights, auto wiper and Apple CarPlay. Show details

Almost perfect car let down by head restraint

I test drove this car overnight, but when I got it home, I never took it out as the head restraint had given me a migraine. It slants forward in a way that is very uncomfortable and it pushes your head forward too much. I loved everything else about the car. That one simple thing - uncomfortable head restraint - meant I wouldn't buy it as why would I willingly by a car that caused me pain?

The head restraint needs to be able to move back. It thrust my head down and made me sit in a hunched way.

There are three colors available for the screen background. How do I find the appropriate control screen to do this. I would like to change color just for the fun of it.

Hi,

I'm looking at getting another car and have narrowed it down to an Elantra. Could anyone please tell me if there is much of a difference between a 2014 Hyundai Elantra SE Auto and a 2015 Hyundai Elantra Elite Auto?

Thanks so much
Janelle
