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 #5

No spare tire, jack, or lug wrench was supplied with this car. Apparently several other manufacturers are doing the same, ostensibly to save on weight and achieve a higher mpg rating. This automobile was sold to my 21 year old daughter who had a blowout. Had she been in a dangerous situation it could easily have resulted in assault and/or death from a crime of opportunity. I have filed a complaint with the consumer protection Agency and with Hyundai. Please stop automobile manufacturers from practicing this potentially criminally negligent sales practice immediately.
