Introduction

with the lack of affordable wagons in the US, the ET was a no brainer. Hyundai has more features in this car than any other manufacturer's sub-$20,000 car. Room is outstanding, as is visibility and brakes. Much better than owning a gas guzzling SUV. I matched the ET against the Tucson.

Why the 2010 Hyundai Elantra Touring?

Why Not the 2010 Hyundai Elantra Touring?

Powertrain performance

transmission replaced at 42,000. I expect it won't be the last time either.

Ride smoothness

I yearn for a bit more floaty suspension. This rides more like a sports tuned suspension.

Handling

very odd steering. It is nice and tight, but it also seems to require a lot more minor course corrections to keep it straight down the road.

Exterior styling

next to impossible to replace the light bulbs by yourself. It is as though Hyundai designed it so you would have to take it back to the dealer for even simple headlight bulb replacements

Conclusion

I wish the ET had a 6 speed transmission. I'm sorry they don't make it any more. The visibility in the GT is not as good, especially through the rear window.
