ElantraClub - For Elantra Owners and Enthusiasts _ Elantra General Discussions _ Checklist for buying a used Elantra

Posted by: timby Sep 22 2009, 12:54 PM

I've got 2 Elantra's an 05 and 06. Like many others I have a few problems that make me scratch my head such as the following:

Needing to pay a lot to get 30,000 mileage checkup.

Has anyone reasoned out why you have to remove the tail light assemble to change a burnt out bulb (someone wasn't thinking too clearly on that one).

Visor's falling out.

Both sets of michelin tires wore out less than 13000 miles.

Why they decided to do what they did with the recirculating gasses into the intake (leaves a lot of oil in the intake).

Otherwise, we get good mileage and and a fairly reliable vehicle. So I would recommend the 05's and not worry too much about warranty as it's lost when the original owner sells.

Just my 2 cents ...
