Good, but not great.
Today I'm going to be talking about my Hyundai Elantra. I got this car last year used and it has been less than perfect. The transmission has an issue with the shift sensor. So I put a new on and it fixed it, but it still has trouble shifting from one gear to the next. It revs a little to high at times so I have to push the gas in slow. The year of my Elantra had the control arms recalled because of rusting issues. In cause your not familiar with control arms, they basically keep your wheels on your car. If you guess they're important, you guess right. My friend had one break on her and she came to a quick stop at 30 miles per hour! Good thing she wasn't on the highway. Mine was bent from a minor accident and I had them replaced. Also, I had a issue with the flex pipe on the muffler. I had that replaced as well. Other than that I have only good things to say about it. It has good handling, decent on gas, and is pretty zippy for a stock 4 cylinder. I think has a nice look to it too for a sedan. Overall, it's a good car. Concerning it's faults I had with it, I wouldn't say it's great.
Convenient commuter car
Easy to fix, little power. Good entry level car for a teenager, someone starting out. Good frame, safe, but dents easily and unsure how well it would hold up it a major accident.
