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.

I was turning from gas station onto road, crossing 3 lanes of traffic when vehicle stalled in the middle of the road and I was nearly broad-sided. All dash lights came on, and ac and radio were on, but engine had stalled. After calling Hyundai usa I took vehicle to dealership, reported as stalling at low speed and rough idle. Hyundai usa representative said no problems like this reported. Also service adviser reported never hearing of the problem when took into dealership, despite numerous reports I had printed off the internet. In fact said "we don't acknowledge internet reports as being valid".
