Hyundai Elantra Lemon Odds and Nada Odds

Other sources of Hyundai Elantra reliability information provide only averages, which can conceal as much as they reveal. So we also report the percentage of Hyundai Elantras with no repairs at all in the past year and the percentage of Hyundai Elantras that are lemons (required three or more repair trips in the past year). These figures might surprise you.

These stats are promptly updated four times a year, to closely track Hyundai Elantra lemon odds as the cars age. Others can be over a year behind. Only TrueDelta tells you how reliable the Hyundai Elantra has been recently.

The 10 year/ 100,000 miles warranty is un-beatable. I spoke to couple friends & co-workers who owns KIA or Hyundai, they all said the warranty is great, but they never needed it anyway. A reliable car with great warranty, no other auto makers can match. see full Hyundai Elantra review

Hyundai has gone from bottom of the bucket to top tier automobile in--my opinion--less than 10 years. To me, this fact alone speaks volumes about the company itself. The Elantra is a fantastic competitor to the Civics, Sentras and Corollas out there. see full Hyundai Elantra review

I always thought of Hyundais as unreliable cars. The only reason I took a chance on this car was because of the warranty. see full Hyundai Elantra review

Horrible trade in value. I was actually told by a dealer that they did not want my car!! It was a year old, excellent condition with 30k miles. They said resale is horrible for hyundai. see full Hyundai Elantra review
