Continues to be my best ever car
The car has now completed 20,000 klm of trouble free motoring and continues to drive as good as day one. The recent service found no issues, the mapping update has improved an already good system and I have learnt of a few new menus to play with, such as change the color of screen and add numerous points of interest icons which can be very handy when searching for something like a bank or servo etc, too many to list. As this is my first car with paddle shifters it is still fun to use them particularly coming down a twisty steep road suc...h as Montville to Palmwoods on the Sunshine Coast. Fuel consumption remains very good, can crack the 5l per 100 ks on a highway run at cruising speed, average fortnightly use around the 6.8l per 100 klms but that is rural driving not heavy city work where it would be just under 8l per 100klm. Tyre wear is perhaps a little more than expected but anticipate about 50,000 klms before replacement is due. The new i30 Sedan N Line Premium would be the choice when trade in time comes knocking.

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.

Hyundai Elantra is perfect

Love my Hyundai Elantra
I bought my Hyundai Elantra last year and am absolutely loving it. While I was more towards buying a Toyota initially, when I test drove Elantra, I immediately changed my mind as I loved the smooth ride so much. Fingers crossed, it hasn't been a problem yet and I would easily recommend this car to anyone.

Crankshaft Sensor Malfunction
My 2013 Elantra has been diagnosed with a failed Crankshaft Sensor and faulty ESC Module, It only just out of warranty and Hyundai refuse to do anything about it. Also its under Dealer Warranty but they wont cover it under their warranty. No more Hyundai for me. My daughter has an i30 and is also unhappy.
Purchased in October 2015 at Zooper Cars, Toowoomba for $15,000.00.
Love the Hyundai .
I have not had the Hyundai very long but after replacing my Toyota Camry which blew a cylinder I could not be happier with the fuel consumption and the many features included in this 2007 model. Being in my senior years I do not use a car as much as in my younger life when I drove interstate regularly and as a taxi proprietor and truck owner I knocked up a few million miles behind the wheel. I drive the car daily and have found no problems with it at present. It is due for a ten thousand km. service and as a precaution I will have the timing ...belt checked early. I am confident there will be no major surprises. It has notched up one hundred a twenty thousand kms. The full service history shows only brakes and minor parts replaced. Nice easy car to drive. I am expecting this car to give me many happy motoring kilometers.
Purchased at private for $1,800.00.
Driving my Hyundai Turbo Elantra
Don’t drive the car as much as I want to as when you get in it you just want to take off for a great long drive . Plenty of power .Very fuel efficient. Its had its second service and found no issues at all with it . The dealer at Hyundai Robina have been great .They drop you where you want to go while waiting or you can sit and have a coffee while doing your emails .

Excellent value for money
I bought a 2012 second hand in 2015 and have had it for four years. I drove it for a couple years on a long commute, 160 kms round trip. Hubby regularly used it for long surf trips, too, so we have driven it from about 20k kms to 160k. We’ve never had a major problem. It is economical to run and maintain. It comfortably seats 4 and I’ve driven three 11 yr old boys in the back no problem.

Not a bad car but service will drive you nuts. The radio is garbage
Not a bad car however the service is terrible. My Bluetooth when I am driving is so distorted I cannot use it. When I ring Hyundai Sinclair Penrith they cannot hear me at all when I complain - I do this so they can hear how bad it is. I have been to the dealers 3 times over this and many calls on the road so they can hear it - it's unusable. Sinclair has agreed to replace the radio. Cartronics - the replacement supplier denies there could be a problem - this is the best that Hyundai can do and produce. Now I am in the middle of supplier denying...supply and Sinclair dealer - not the best for a customer. I rang Hyundai customer care regarding this and was told I should do what I am told and go in there at Cartronics demands for a 4th time to prove again to Cartronics what the dealers already knows, wasting my time. I am a busy electrical engineer and this is a company car supplied lease thru Summit. No calls back from Cartronics as they are too busy last week, surprise surprise. This is unbelievable and I hate the car and service now. I expect a whole lot better from Hyundai putting the customer out in the middle of an internal supplier demanding garbage.
Been having the car for almost a year now. I’m glad I went with this Elantra. Well built, cost effective to run. If you’re considering it should spend a bit more (2K from memory) for the Elite version with more features (smart key, etc). Hyndai services is great too. One happy camper.
A class above
Hyundai have really stepped up the quality and look of the Hyundai Elantra. You get a whole lot for your money. They are packed full of safety and modern features, the car has a great finish. It's a classy looking car and it drives really well for a low, low price tag.
Great overall package
Have now got 18,000 k's on the clock and is a great car. This is the SR version with the 150kw engine. For the power it has amazing fuel efficiency currently around low 7Lt/100K. Handling is great. Love the paddle shifters, changeable driving modes and lots of other goodies. Only thing that could be improved is the tech with the touch screen a bit basic. Looking forward to the fastback I30N coming for a possible upgrade.
Great and Reliable
We purchased hyundai elantra base model in 2015. It was our first brand new car.
It is a great and reliable drive. Stylish and easy to drive. Boot space is huge compared with similar sedan's and seats are comfortable.
Fuel consumption is good to as it gives 13km per litre and more for long drives.
Worth every dollar.
Reliable family car
Great vehicle to drive around town and on the highway. Very quiet engine went stopped at traffic lights or other reasons. I can travel from Bowen to Rockhampton on one tank of fuel. That’s over 600 kms. Easy to parking. Only my cruise control has failed recently. Otherwise all good.
What a car
This car has everything, its sporty comfortable not noisy has heated electric seats cruise control,great sound system great to drive reliable has never let me down,factory tinted windows,sunroof,reverse camera on the revision mirror CD player in the dash, USB ports economy switch electric mirrors,keyless entry all leather upholstery automatic and manual,just so much going on with this car, sport exhaust, this car is a dream and looks great I added different wheels on it but the original wheels are nice as well hyundi need to bring out a updated version of this it would be the best seller I call mine the top of the range a beautiful car love it mines the MD PREMIUM still holding there value
Could Not be Happier
I pur ahased my car as a demo with 4000km on the clock. I have had it 5 months and could not be happier. It is roomy, econmical and provides a smooth ride. My prevoius car was a Camry and I was looking for something slightly smaller but bigger than a Corolla. The Elantra fits the bill perfectly.
PERFECT ALL ROUNDER !
Brilliant all rounder. got this car on sale (the special edition model) sure I know its not a real leather interior, but its super comfortable, built well, and for a 20K car feels better than you expect for this price point. The engine is quite and will go when pushed. the gearbox is silky smooth and ride is great. The seats are very supportive and conformable. The bot space is simply amazing and the biggest of this class of car. 60,000kms now and not a single fault, rattle, or anything.
Questions & Answers
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.
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
Hi I really am happy with this 04 elantra 2hvt. I have a need to replace the pollen ac filter. Any tips help in taking the glove box out? And advice? Bushfires here in NSW Australia. Thanks Mark
