AngieW in Texas Posted September 23, 2012 Share Posted September 23, 2012 I'm getting a new vehicle in May. My dh and I typically drive a car for 15 years and then get a new car. His pickup hit the 15-year mark 3.5 years ago and he got a Honda Fit. My van will hit the 15-year mark in April (and dh's car will be paid off then) and it really is on its last legs with $1000-2000 of repairs every year for the last 3 years. My youngest is now 14yo. My oldest is in college now and my middle dd will be in college next year. I don't need an enormous vehicle like my full-sized van anymore. I'm looking at Hyundai because they have an amazing warranty. I can't stand the headrests in most new cars because they shove your head forward, but the headrests in the Hyundais don't do that. My requirements for a car are that it have seats that fold flat so you can use it to transport cargo (have kids to move in and out of dorms and campus apartments), get good gas mileage, and be close to but no bigger than my dd's 2003 Toyota Camry in length for ease in parking (Elantra hatchbacks and Tucsons are right about that size). All three of the Hyundai's had pros and cons to them. I was curious what kind of experience WTMers have had with these three vehicles. I think I like the Elantra Touring the best of the three.
