Notes: So far the 2011 Elantra doesn't have the same volume of transmission problems that 2010 owners are fighting with. It also doesn't have the same pattern of steering and braking complaints that are piling up with the 2013 model year.

We're not saying the 2011 is perfect -- I mean, what were they thinking advertising their MPGs -- but there are worse choices.

2011 Hyundai Elantra Owner Comments

problem #1

Jul 022011

Elantra 4-cyl

  • 3,600 miles


Dry day, normal acceleration, traction control killed power upon entering highway traffic leaving us sitting in 50-55 mph traffic, then cleared up, twice within 3 hours. Also on same day, 60 mph on a two lane road the skid control light came on and applied the left front brake pulling me into oncoming traffic, I reacted quickly and brought auto back to my lane and turned off skid control. This happened once before.fortunately there was no traffic. The skid control light came on then went back out both times. One failure seemed to be the traction control, the other was the skid control. I suspect a bad wheel speed sending unit. So far the dealer has found nothing.
