The rain and weather here has been crazy. There's another flash flood warning for today and tomorrow.

I hope things hold tight for you there. I'll shoot you a text tomorrow to see how you're doing.

Once again, it was a good run Mitch, thank you for all of this. We had some highs and we had some lows, but at some point we all had an Elantra ;-)

Long Live ElantraClub!

Hi everyone,

I thought I'd pop in and say hi. It's been a few years to say the least since I've driven an Elantra. I went back to my roots as a Mazda guy, traded the EGT for a Mazda3 Sport Touring, then a Mazda5 when the family started to grow. Wanted another 3 but they were just too small, and we REALLY didn't want an SUV. The best alternative was a Golf Sportwagen, so that's what I'm driving now. Huge tuning community, and tons of aftermarket support. Also a really large global OEM network, so customizing is really easy. It's amazing how far cars have come in 15 years and I'm every bit certain that's the case with Hyundai as well. I have to say, I'm loving the VW. 200 ft-lb of torque and 40 mpg, almost seems too good to be true (they're probably cheating tongue.gif )

This place has grown a lot! Who else besides EGT, BNystron, and Popeye are still around?

Hey Southpaw! I think I'm the only one hanging around these parts most days along with the "guests" lol I wonder what Bob is up to these days, and Aaron and Ed.

I still have the Elantra GT but drive a Mazda CX-5, though lately I've been desiring a Tacoma for the utility aspect, they ain't cheap though :-/

Holy crap its back open. What's up everyone? Got some news for ya, for the first time in many years there is no longer a Hyundai in my drive way. I got a 2012 vw golf gti. Is that really a big surprise though. I love the car. Mitch I hope your doing good.

Just thought I'd check in...

Life has changed heaps

Current cars
2016 Santa Fe with the 2.2 CRDi diesel... Absolutely love it! Heaps of torque to tow our caravan around Australia

Partners car is now a 2017 i30 SR 1.6 with 7spd DCT great drive and lots of fun to drive

Have never owned anything other than a Hyundai still.. don't think I'll ever change. 7 and counting

For the first time we no longer have a manual transmission car

Adopted a child this year.. fun and games but doing very well

New job doing project management.

Hope everyone is well.

Hey SPB, have not seen you in forever. I still remember reading over your electrical tutorials and such.

No changes for me really.
I still have my F150, wife still has her Scion, but I did buy a motorcycle, a Honda 1100 Shadow.

I will be in the market for another vehicle soon. My daughter is 15, turns 16 in December. We don't plan on getting her a car right away, probably not until summer of next year.
We are trying to decide what to do:
1. give my daughter the Scion and buy something new for the wife (a 2016-2017 Kia Sorento is what I would like, wife wants another mini-van)
2. give her my truck and get me something else (no idea what I want, but this probably will not happen)
3. find some decent beater for her.

My mother in law has a '02 Chevy Tracker 4 door that may be available in a few months (mother in law is in early dementia, and we are evaluating her ability to drive, she still does OK, but not sure how much longer), as well as my mom is thinking of getting a newer vehicle, and I would take her Saturn Vue for my daughter with no concerns.
