ElantraClub - For Elantra Owners and Enthusiasts _ Elantra General Discussions _ What kind of mileage are you getting?

Posted by: rtj525 Nov 11 2006, 05:24 AM

Good Day,

I am the owner of a 2003 ELANTRA GT Hatchback with manual transmission, ABS, Traction Control and almost 71,000 miles. I have a 34 miles one way commute to work, most of which is on I-380 and open roads. I watch my driving, so as to maximize mpg, and I am consistently rewarded with 33 - 35 mpg. As for miles/tank, I am always well into the mid 500 mile range.

I have found that the mpg dash computer and my computing mpg the old fashion way always is within a few tenths of each other.

Previous to my buying the ELANTRA, I had been the happy owner of two Honda Civics and an Acura Integra for about 15 years. My purchase of the ELANTRA was strictly economics. Although I wanted a new CIVIC, at the time, the few thousand $$ more was a bit too much. My ELANTRA has been trouble free. Oil is changed every 5K, and maintenance is performed as per Hyundai recommendations.

I am presently lusting after the new ACCENT SE 5 speed, but with only 71 K on my ELANTRA, I will just have to wait.
