    I bought a brand new elantra2013 and brakes have been making loud grinding noise since 500 miles . Stay away

    Fix the noisy brakes on the elantras , they suck , loud grinding noise . buyer beware.

    The 2013 Hyundai Elantra is America’s most reliable small sedan of 2013. Made in USA, engineered by German and Korean engineers.

    Viva Hyundai Motors!

    Love the 2013 elantra for its style, size and fuel efficiency, but i cannot stand the
    mismatched paint between the body and the bumpers.

    love the design of the coupe!

  11. heroheroicOctober 5, 2013 at 1:05 pm

    Honda needs to REALLY get it together. FAST

  12. quest8899October 5, 2013 at 1:19 pm

    whats better this or chevy cruze

  13. MrLivePositive8October 5, 2013 at 2:13 pm

    Hyundai is doing it right, so is Tesla Motors. For Tesla, Elon, most people are waiting for the economical car, Model S & X are great though.

    The hatchback does not replace the “old Touring”. I wish Hyundai brings the Elantra wagon to the U.S. With neither Ford, nor GM, nor Chrysler offering compact wagons, the Elantra wagon will be a hit, especially when priced at 2/3 of the TSX Wagon.

  15. nismofuryOctober 5, 2013 at 3:14 pm

    I am buying it when it comes out. I am sick of all these 4 door sub compact cars. I rather have better performance than a bigger size.

  16. alijalabOctober 5, 2013 at 3:32 pm

    i love this car…

  17. L4TIn0St4NdUpOctober 5, 2013 at 3:54 pm

    hyundai should work on awd for performance models(veloster turbo for example) before anything else

  18. camshaft53149October 5, 2013 at 4:03 pm

    agreed. a hyundai veloster turbo and elantra will be awsome.. i really do like hyundai but they havent been the greatest in the performance area.

  19. camshaft53149October 5, 2013 at 4:24 pm

    i really like the hatchback and the coupe. i wouldnt mind them, except if the gt is expensive id buy a focus st first.

  20. lizardgreen2121October 5, 2013 at 4:56 pm

    love it Hyundai! but come on upgrade your powertrains! we need more turbos! like if you agree

  21. GerryStiltonOctober 5, 2013 at 5:10 pm

    Great job Mike!

  22. whirlawayOctober 5, 2013 at 5:48 pm

    wish Honda would come out with a 4 door Civic wagon or hatchback. I like this Hyundai Elantra hatchback.

  23. Nathan KendallOctober 5, 2013 at 6:36 pm

    I like the coupe, but I would only buy one with the engine out of the Veloster Turbo.

  24. keri ellerbeOctober 5, 2013 at 7:15 pm

    I like the coupe…Funny thing is ten years ago Honda had this segment but now things change I guess the V-tec craze everybody was in got old and Honda could’n milk it anymore….ON the other hand Honda is still a good company though just alot more comp out here now….

  25. Gary JamesOctober 5, 2013 at 7:31 pm

    Look out Civic! The Hyundai has a much nicer interior layout !

  26. SuperQuietMaxOctober 5, 2013 at 8:29 pm

    Admit that the WRX STI is better.

  27. Mike DOctober 5, 2013 at 8:47 pm

    3400lbs is heavy? so the m3 is a pig I guess.

  28. winboilosOctober 5, 2013 at 9:16 pm

    This guy is really annoying he doesnt seem like a car guy to me

  29. David SeongOctober 5, 2013 at 10:05 pm

    you’re all about american muscle kid, truth about cars? change that to BS about cars.

    you’re comparing crap cars to this car? come on, get real kiddo, there are many cars out there to compare with, g37, 370Z, which a mustang V6 can’t even fit in it.

    when it comes to sporty speedy car, it’s not about american muscle, you’re so old school. this is 2013. keep up with the trend of cars in the world kid. LEARN!!

  30. timo101ful1October 5, 2013 at 10:28 pm

    you look like a Korean elvis,you fat,plastic jackit wearin prick,shut up!!!!!

  31. sead garanovicOctober 5, 2013 at 11:04 pm

    You’re comparing this to a civic…. A civic is so basic and slow and handles like shit. My mom drives a civic. This Genesis is fast. I’ve been in one and it surprised me! You probably had the A/C on so that’s why it didn’t suit your needs.

  32. sneakers lemonyOctober 5, 2013 at 11:18 pm

    the v6 mustang is an american genesis coupe if anything.

  33. Dan ChangOctober 5, 2013 at 11:19 pm

    why do people do such stupid cringeworthy jokes these days

  34. kk188887October 5, 2013 at 11:59 pm

    This is korean car..

  35. steven valdezOctober 6, 2013 at 12:55 am

    I love this car soo much I love your shirt

  36. TonyTube407October 6, 2013 at 1:49 am

    I was going to tell you to tie your shoes, but then I remembered that you were wearing a gold glitter jacket so I kept my mouth shut.

  37. amutsamOctober 6, 2013 at 2:27 am

    if the civic had rear wheel drive it would be one of the best bang for the buck fun cars

  38. maze2twoOctober 6, 2013 at 3:21 am

    Why the fuck are your shoes untied…are we 2 years old again? TIE YOUR SHOES!!! *ocd rant* Really though, you didn’t know your shoes were untied?

  39. anand123456789October 6, 2013 at 3:27 am

    He’s not saying its a Japanese car, he’s saying it feels like one. Its not that hard to understand!

  40. patrick jacksonOctober 6, 2013 at 3:30 am

    Umm he knows that you don’t pay attention like the rest of these people.

  41. patrick jacksonOctober 6, 2013 at 3:55 am

    You really have to understand his logic behind it. And this car is better then a mustang haha

  42. gafga gdasgsOctober 6, 2013 at 4:15 am

    Respects to Japanese cars but this is 100% Korean.

  43. theredsruleOctober 6, 2013 at 4:49 am

    Is this dude seriously running out of breath?

  44. Andrew LeeOctober 6, 2013 at 4:53 am

    its not a damn japanese car!!!!!! its a korean car. 

  45. Christopher WalshOctober 6, 2013 at 4:57 am

    why is he/she out of breath lol

  46. adrigarmOctober 6, 2013 at 5:51 am

    Hyundai is corean no Japanese…

  47. Agustin ToralOctober 6, 2013 at 6:19 am

    tie ur shoes!!

  48. roberto rochaOctober 6, 2013 at 7:07 am

    Seems like you have weight problems

  49. tyOctober 6, 2013 at 7:42 am

    Holy shit bro. I own a 3.8 and if a v6 weighs that much I can only imagine what a v8 weighs. Try more like 3.3 tons or similar to that of a 350z or a g37
