VEHICLE STORY

I always loved hatchbacks ever since my 88 Honda CRX. I was in need of a car and had considered a few others like the Ford Focus, Fiesta, Mazda3, Honda Civic, Fit, and the Subaru Impreza. I decided on the Hyundai Elantra GT because it was by far the best bang for my buck in the area I lived in. Traveling hundreds of miles to purchase a car was not an option for me. I bought it certified pre-owned at a Hyundai dealership in July of 2020. I love this car so much. I only wish it was a manual but I had very slim pickings. I was fortunate it came with the value package that included the sport-tuned suspension, and 17-inch wheels which make it fun to drive. I also like the powered leather heated seats. I'm not sure why Consumer Report gave it low ratings, but I love this car. Also sorry about the pictures, I can't seem to rotate them. Got a lot of info from this site https://www.caranddriver.com/hyundai/elantra-gt/specs/2017/hyundai_elantra-gt_hyundai-elantra-gt_2017
