I did not plan to purchase a car in 2017, but unforeseen circumstances lead me to buying a new car. I did visit other makes and test drove other models, but the Elantra was the best deal in town. I did go down to a smaller vehicle, from the Sonata, and I thought I would be disappointed in the pick up speed and comfort. But the Elantra offers a great turbo option and lots of perks with sunroof, seat warmer, Bluetooth, auto push start, to name a few of the things I did not have in my older Sonata. I am definitely happy with my purchase, and ease of the transactions.
