ElantraClub - For Elantra Owners and Enthusiasts _ Elantra General Discussions _ I got rid of my'03 Elantra yesterday

Posted by: cabreco Jul 2 2017, 08:36 PM

Well today sadly I parted with my 2003 GLS.

I bought this little car brand new in NJ with only 7 miles on the odometer.

We moved to Virginia & she served my wife & me well for 10 years with zero problems. she had a few upgrades like custom fog lights & Sonata mags.
The only issue I ever had was the headlights fogged over.

I replace the headlights rather inexpensively from EBay.
She had over 100K trouble free miles when my kid started driving her too.

After the kid graduated we moved to Tennessee. 4 months later IT HAPPENED!
My son got into a 45 MPH head on with, ironically enough, a 2013 Elantra.
Both cars were totaled, both kids walked away with scratches.

I spent the last few months dissecting my little 2003 for parts. My son bought himself a 2002 GT and now has an entire carload of spare parts. I picked her clean. She did her job & saved my son's life. Bottom line: BEST $13,000.00 I EVER SPENT, & best car I have ever bought. She was towed away yesterday. RIP!
