hi, great idea for a topic. i posted a note today in the newbie forum which explains my situation.

i looked at the list of posts on buying used - the service bulletin info on the "power dip" does not come up.... sounds important - any other place i can read that? thanks!
(ps - great job on this website)

If you have a limited budget and are looking for a new Elantra you may want to look at a 05 GLS Hatchback. It has the same set up as a 05 GT but it has a GLS dash, cloth seats, no fog lamps, steel rims. Everything else I believe is the same. Can anyone add anything? Thanks

i think i'll be fine with GLS - just read that perforated leather seats are hard to clean... i might look into leather seat covers or something. however - the aluminum wheels are the thing... how much would it be if i were to upgrade to alum wheels later?

also - any news on the power dip linke?

From the archive a SPB quote:

QUOTE ( by southpawboston @ May 25th, 2004)
also ask if there were maintenance records since the dealer may want to see these if warranty work is to be performed. if you go in with an engine-related warranty problem and have no records of maintenance, you may be denied.



I got nailed with this one. Everyone, pay attention, they will void the engine warranty. At least get oil change information!!!

The "power dip," problem is not a big deal because the dealer will fix that free in an hour or two. I think maybe all Elantras have it and most people just never drive their cars hard enough and pay close enough attention to notice it.

Wooo ditch the troubled Holden... you'll never look back!

David- Heaps of Elantra owners down under seem to be older couples in the 50 + bracket, if you can find an Elantra with that kind of owner you'll have a car that will last for a good decade and long as it's well maintained.

I've noticed that the 7,500km oil change is optional... it might be a good idea to try and find a used Elantra that has the 7,500km service done no matter what.

I'm even getting all the optional services done.

It's only free if you're under the 5/60 warranty. If that's expired, then you have to pay for it.
