My Zippy Friend

Reviewed by Raiderone
October 14, 2014

Have owned My GT for about 2 weeks now. I'm half way through my second tank of gas and seem to be getting close to 25 mpg in mostly city driving. This car is so fun to drive. With the tranny in manual mode you can really get around corners and up and down hills without the fear of holding anyone else behind you. Would have liked the Style Package but, unfortunately it only comes with leather seats. When you live in the desert, cloth is the way to go. The standard equipment on the car is so great. Includes Bluetooth, satellite radio, trip computer, heated seats (LOL), 16" alloys, and the a/c cools the car quickly. Overall, I would say if you are looking for a stylish, fun to drive car that gets decent gas mileage, great warranty and good bang for the buck, this is it. I love my zippy friend and I think you would too.

Better than expected

Reviewed by Copperhead

Purchased this car on July 30 for a second car and I am very pleased. The gas mileage is better than I expected. I live in the mountains so I was concerned with the "pep" of the car but it is very acceptable. After comparing many models in this category this Elantra GT offered great leg room for the driver (I'm 6-1) and passenger and comfortable leather seats with power lumbar. It has good cargo area for golf clubs without letting the back seat down.

great car and best i have owned in 35 years

This 2014 Hyundai Elantra GT is by far the best car i have owned and driven in my 35 years of driving . For almost 10 years i worked for a GM/CHEVY dealership picking up cars from auctions , dealers trades ( new vehicles for customers ) and have driven every model GM/CHEVY/Buick/Cadillac/Pontiac and Saturn they made up to 2009 model year , plus Porsche/Mercedes/BMW ETC. and the Elantra GT beats them all with the comfort of the ride , no road noise inside from tires , motor or air from window seal leaks , it is very quiet inside on paved or gravel roads . Gas mileage ....... I am getting 32 to 33.5 miles city driving , 24 miles round trip . On interstate on last trip got 41.2 mpg with ECO ASSIST ON ALWAYS (if other reviewer is getting the extremely low gas mileage that was posted , then there is only 2 possibilities , #1 the person is making jackrabbit starts and driving the Elantra GT like a bat out of Hades all the time or #2 THERE IS something wrong with the engine and/or computer not sending correct fuel mixture rates to Gas Direct Injection/ECO ASSIST not working properly etc., and needs to find another Hyundai Dealership to check car out or ta;k to the existing GM or OWNER of dealership where car was bought . If that fails , call the regional office of Hyundai where you live and it will be corrected . ( I DO NOT WORK FOR HYUNDAI , JUST A PROUD OWNER !) The 2014 GT interior is comfortable with great included electronics and too many standard options to mention that YOU WOULD have to pay extra for with other car manufactures . 2014 Elantra GT is great car , with great price and 100,000 mile warranty . almost forgot , the 173hp 2.0l engine is a real strong engine , from a dead stop in just normal driving , watch your speed odometer because you will be sitting on 80mph and will not realize it . for a 4 cylinder it is a very fast engine with a great 6 speed automatic/plus manual shift , that when gears shift , there so smooth you can hardly feel them change . I recommend this car to anyone .

Worst gas milage of any car i have ever owned.

Reviewed by bummed
January 25, 2014

The sticker said 37/27 and 30 MPG over all. The best I have gotten so far with mixed freeway and in town is 26. It only gets 21 around town. I took it in and complained and the service man said their report says that customers are getting 25.5 average and it is running fine. For 45 years every car I have ever owned has gotten 30+ MPG. Even my old Toyota pick up gets 25 mixed driving. Every time I have to fill up I get more upset. I would never have bought it if I would have known how inefficient it was. Also the front windshield defroster does not melt ice where the drivers line of sight is for at least 12 minutes. The mirrors, side windows and rear windows all defrost just fine within a couple of minutes. The service tech said there is nothing wrong with it...Then there is the driver's seatbelt that will not retract about half the time. The service tech says there is nothing wrong with that either...What good is the 100,000 warranty if they will not fix anything? On the good side it handles like a dream and has plenty of power. the 6 speed automatic is very smooth. The interior is really roomy and quiet, the blue tooth for the phone is so good people i am talking to cannot tell I am in the car and the stereo sounds great.

I would recommend this vehicle to a friend: NO
