I thought mine was a RD2, idk you might be right.

Maybe it's documented elsewhere here, but I was curious (thought someone who knew would post) so I investigated. It was just bugging me, although in the grand scheme of things, it doesn't really matter.

J1 = First Generation, 1990-95
RD/J2 = Second Generation, 1996-97
RD2/J3 = 2nd Gen, Facelift, 1998-2000

Someone put the following text into the wikipedia page, but I cannot find where Hyundai "clearly states" it.

Hyundai clearly states that the 1996-98 elantra is an RD NOT a J2. The same goes for the facelifted 1999-2000 version. It's has the chassis code of RD2 NOT J3. Information can be seen on Hyundai's online technical site,

On the hmaservice website though, they list it as the RD. I would think that, given the major difference between the J1 and RD, that RD/RD2 would be the more appropriate to use.

The Tiburon was RC or GK.
