2006 0 I have had innumerable problems with this car. I have had a cracked radiator, a dead alternator, 3 malfunctioning power steering pumps, an exhaust leak, and have replaced the front wheel bearings. These are just SOME of the repairs I've incurred in just the last 2 years! full 2006 Hyundai Elantra review

The entire cooling system should be replaced around 100000 miles. My thermostat failed catastrophically blowing up the radiator. Everything I have seen from other owners show this is a problem too. Not a big deal as long as you plan on this and take preventative steps. full 2003 Hyundai Elantra review
