can you do me a favor and remove the forum "Hyundai Elantra GLS 1997" from the selection list on the elantra page? I ask you this cause I created a chat called "2000 Hyundai Elantra GLS vs. Ford Focus ZX3" and it got taken off; maybe its because there is no room for it on the selection part. But that 1997 hyundai forum is pointless. no one has posted something in it for 2 years in it and even if we wanted to, its frozen. So its really just taking up space. I'd appreciate you taking it off and putting the "2000 Hyundai Elantra GLS vs. Ford Focus ZX3" back up. People were posting a lot in there until it was taken off and now it can't be found unless searched for. Thank you very much!

I don't maintain the links from the pricing pages. I'm not sure if they are generated automatically or somebody actually selects and inserts them. I can remove the 1997 topic but I don't know if that will make the comparison topic show up...
#110 of 5565 2001 prices

According to the Kelley blue book the 2001 Elantra is $700 more for the 5 speed and $750 more for the automatic over the 2000 models. I don't really see the reason for such an increase. Also, you have to pay $400 now to get cruise control becaues cruise control is now a package that includes the keyless entry. I think we will keep our 99 for a few more years. The 99/2000 Elantra looks better then the 2001 anyway (my opinion).

the 2001 elantra is much more refined. i mean, look at the interior. it looks more stylish then the 2000. the headlights are better. its been redone. i think the front end kind of looks like a chevy impala squshed down a bit and the back end like a nissan sentra. its nice, but i like mine better. maybe if they swapped interiors, then we have a perfect car!

Wheel base is changed........
more roomy than before........
also... weight is heavier.......
Elantra has a three kinds of suspension.
One is for Korean market--> very soft
The other is European market--> very very hard.
The third one is for NA market--> I don't know..
Hyundai guys think that quality is as same as Honda....
Well.. it is sold in Europe now.
#113 of 5565 all i have to say is.....
Oct 02, 2000 (11:55 pm)
the elantra isn't as good of a deal as it use to be! Eventhough its canadian dollars, basing it on saying its the same base price; you lose some standard options that were with this years model, you lose power windows, locks, mirrors and only gain 15" rims vs. 14" which are this year. Not worth giving up those power options to me. It now cost 17,000 fully loaded. id rather have a vw jetta for that price. Glad i bought mine this year Best deal there ever was and probably will be!
#114 of 5565 It comes with side airbags...
Oct 03, 2000 (2:13 am)
According to a magazine ad. For that reason alone I think it is worth the 750 dollars.
#115 of 5565 Is $8500 for a 1999 w/ 9500 miles too much?
Oct 03, 2000 (3:51 am)
I have the opportunity to buy a 1999 Elantra for $8500. It has 9500 miles. I just want to get a feel as to whether or not it is a good deal. It has PW, PL, Pmirrs, Rear Def, AC, AM/FM Cass, 195 tires, Cruise, 5sp (I would not consider automatic... personal preference). Anyone know of any problems with the manual transmission?

That price is too high. I got my 5 speed 2000 Elantra brand new for under $10k in August. They depreciate fast. I would say somewhere in the $6k range is fair.....
The car is great though.
#117 of 5565 Where? I'll go there & buy one
Oct 03, 2000 (5:25 pm)
Where did you get a 5-speed 2000 Elantra under 10K? I'll consider going there and buying one. Let me know. No such luck for me in the northeast to date.
