About The Hyundai Elantra

The Hyundai Elantra or Avante as it is known in some regions is a compact car that was first produced in the year 1990.

Globally it competes with other compact cars like the modern Honda Civic and popular Mazda3.

The original version was released as a cost-effective alternative to family sedans like the Ford Sierra and Vauxhall/Opel Vectra.

The car is now in its seventh generation of design and has evolved to be less of a cheap alternative and more of a serious contender against its competition.

The most recent version (seventh generation – 2020) allows the customer to choose not only a hybrid option but also LPG, something that is usually fitted after purchase.

The Elantra has gained a name for itself as a cheap way to get a good quality fuel-efficient family car, as Hyundai becomes a much better brand than it was in previous decades.

Common Problems With The Elantra

  • Engine knocking – a common issue with the Elantra is the engine mounts wearing away causing a knocking to come from under the hood requiring a replacement
  • Windows – if you are finding your electric windows are struggling to go up and down then the regulator may have gone and a replacement will be needed
  • Air-conditioning – multiple AC problems can occur and if you find it isn’t pushing out air it could be a blower motor and if the air that is coming out isn’t cold then its most likely the compressor
