elantra beats out ford focus and VW passatt
the hyundai elantra has won out over the ford focus and vw passat to become the 2012 north american car of the year.i was actually considering the focus and passat before i decided on the elantra and iam glad i did.
Still no power seat, though, which we found a little odd but don't have a big problem with.
I admit it drives the price higher but then again you still get a lot of car for the dollar and it remains less expensive than similarly equipped competitors (Focus, Cruze).
My wife has had her '12 Elantra Limited w/Tech since September and it's been flawless so far. She still doesn't get the EPA fuel economy but her commute is too short for the engine to fully warm up (and Illinois uses Ethanol and we're on winter blend gas). As it is she's filling up about once every 4 weeks.
