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

Ricer. You should know what that word means in car culture before you get yourself into the Civic Si. That said, the eighth generation Civic Si has been around long enough that people are starting to figure out what Honda actually made... so maybe the reputation isn't all bad. see full Honda Civic review
