Many used car buyers like to buy Hyundais because they come with extended warranties. These warranties can really help put a used car shopper's mind at ease.
Elantra's are small sedans, but many Elantra drivers report the interior is surprisingly roomy for such a small car. The leg room in both the front and back seat is better than expected. There are also plenty of interior storage spots. It is recommended that if you are looking to buy a used Elantra, you should try to buy one made in 2001 or later.
