I did not realize you bought the car from a dealer. I thought you got it in a private sale. Sorry about my original reply. I would call Hyundai customer service and complain to them about the wrong information you received. The hyundais we bought were always new.

As I stated most people I speak with, BELIVE, that warrenty is transferable.
Respectfully, those people need to do a little research before buying a car.

I did buy the car from private seller, took it to dealer, and they told me needed new trans. but when I asked why it was not on invoice, the service writer just wrote 4th gear not working.... sorry for the mix up.... have a great day
#195 of 221 Slowly Upgrading the 04' Elantra....
Sep 21, 2006 (4:09 am)
I'm a proud owner of a Silver 2004 Elantra. Bit by bit, I'm upgrading as I just moved up in Northern NY near my family and now have "Brotherly Help" adding new accessories to my vehicle. Here's what I've done so far to it:
1) New K & N Air Filter
2) New 15" Extreme Racing Hubs
3) Xenon HID 7000K Superwhite Headlight Bulbs(blue plasma)
4) Currently installing Foglights(Xenon Blue Plasma's)
5) Installed Bosch Platinum +4 Plugs(no gapping required)
More to come....

I appreciate the info...thanks man!!!! Hey, another question for ya...I was reading the instructions on my UW Fog Lights and they state they recommend NOT poking just the bulb through as this may melt away some of the plastic around the fog holes. I have personally NEVER seen this or heard of it happening. Would this be a problem or should I not worry too much about it as they will only be on night w/ my lowbeams?

I'm not personally familiar with the Xenon bulbs or how much power they use. The fog lights I use have 55W H3 halogen bulbs (which, I think, is the same as the OEM bulb) and so far, no melting. If your bulbs are less than 55W, you should be okay.

That's what I thought but wasn't positive...thanks!! Oh, I had to return the UW's because they would not fit/mount on anything. I got a set of Pilots - 55W H3's and they are a little bit bigger than the cutout, but i can trim that out more and get em' in....Wish me luck!!!

This is great a discussion on Hyundai Elantras. Just want to know does it matter if you brought it used? If not just got mine a couple of weeks ago. 2005 I think it is a GLS because it is a 4dr automatic.

The big difference with buying a used Elantra (other than the fact it's, um, pre-owned) is that you get at best (if you are the 2nd owner) the remainder of the 5 year, 60k mile bumper-to-bumper warranty. You don't get the extra 5 years/40k miles of powertrain warranty on top of that--thst is just for the original owner.
If your car has a cloth interior, it's a GLS.
