Just as Japanese car companies had a tough time entering the U.S. market in the 1970's, Korean car companies faced the same challenges in the 1990's. Both Hyundai and Kia came to stand out as more than just the cheapest cars on the block. They displayed reliability and performance that has sometimes been lacking in American and Japanese made vehicles. Over the last 20 years Hyundai has been on an upward trend and the 2009 Elantra is the perfect example. My favorite part of the car has to be the build quality. When it is sitting next to a similarly priced Honda or Toyota in the parking lot there really is no contest when it comes to fit and finish. This quality stands out in its reliability. I have put well over 100,000 miles on my Elantra and can honestly say I enjoyed every mile as much as the last. If I have one complaint about the car its that when something breaks, such as the rear-view mirror, its almost impossible to find parts to fix it. I've never had an expensive repair at the dealer but sometimes I just prefer to take care of the little things myself and that is the biggest con. The ride quality and overall comfort for the price is unparalleled. I've notice my car's ride has gotten a little softer since I hit 100,000 miles but I'm still very satisfied and its still much more comfortable than a Toyota Camry from the factory. I couldn't really see myself owning another car.
