Notes: There's an emerging trend of transmission problem with the 2010 Elantra at fairly early mileage.

So far owners report having the transmission replaced under warranty but that won't hold up for much longer. It may be a bit premature but for now we're putting the "CLUNKER" rating on the 2010 Elantra just to be safe.

Speaking of being safe, you might not be unless Hyundai can figure out why their airbags aren't deploying.

While driving I went to dim the rear view mirror because someone had their brights on me and the rear view mirror fell off. It shocked me and so when I pulled over to look at exactly what happened I noticed that it was not the adhesive to just wear off, a chunk of the glass came off with the rear view mirror. There is currently a hole in my windshield, it is not all the way through but a mechanic said if I even hit a pothole too hard the windshield can shatter. I am not the hulk and can't rip apart glass so the only thing I can think of is that this is a serious manufacturer defect. The dealership I bought the car from are unable to see me tomorrow and I really hope that this can be resolved. Thank you.
