I don't think I've owned 56 of anything, let alone cars!

long story, but isn't that kinda what this thread is for?

so one of my buddies liked the elantra gt when it first came out in 2012 and so did i. i test drove one at a dealer in mid 2013 and he ended up buying the same one about a month later. he surprised himself by liking it as much as he did (he's generally a bmw and audi guy). i came across a pre-owned base model in january 2014 w/ 44k miles and bought it. fast forward to the end of last year and he started jonesing about getting back into a bmw. i really missed not having some of the 21st century creature comforts like navigation, keyless start, and panoramic moonroof, so we came up with a plan for me to purchase his elantra when the X1 he ordered came in. so we talked about it for over six months and when delivery day came, he traded his elantra in for about $2000 less than i was willing to pay. turns out that was okay, because last month, i found a new 2014 elantra gt in oklahoma for $10K off msrp. the 2014 comes with a larger engine and led taillights too. so now i have two, and need to find the time to sell my first one.

and it's more like corey has one car and i have four. i have a serious problem.

Re: Hijack this thread: The Sequel!!

I had a 2013 Elantra as a company car for a year. Good little car, except it had this weird behavior: If I rolled through a dip, say a man-hole cover or something, the car would jump to the side. Really odd.

I was sad that I had to trade in my turbo Cruze for it though. I had been planning to build a DIY boost controller valve out of plumbing parts and seeing how far that little 1.4 could go, but then Chevy came out with a recall and I had to bring it back

How bad was the side jump? I guess my Elantras may do the same thing, but I don't notice it to be more severe than any other small FWD car.

It's strange that you mention the Cruze as it was the other car my buddy and I both considered. He was looking at a 2LT or LTZ (if it came in manual), but didn't want to see himself coming and going. I was looking at the ECO 6MT, but almost bought a base model LS with 1.8L NA engine. The Cruze seemed peppier than the Elantra GT. Other than features that pretty much come standard in all new cars, I wanted satellite radio. The pre-owned Elantra GT base model won because it also had alloy wheels, rear disc brakes, and heated seats.

3 months later, i still have the base GT and use it as my good weather daily driver. At 81k miles, it is still surprisingly tight, unlike the rattly 71k mile Legacy.
