On a stick shift, it's best to drive it yourself and see what you think. I think the stick has a nice light clutch feel and decent throws, but what I think and what you think could be totally different--and I'm not the one driving your car!
If the car doesn't have a radio, it also doesn't have AC... but you probably knew that. I didn't have AC on my car until I moved to Houston in 1982. I sold my old car before moving and bought one with AC down there. Glad I did! One thing to consider, depending on how long you plan to keep this car.. you might not want/need AC, but lots of other folks do.

It has A/C, just no radio. The last manual I drove was an '03 A4 quattro. I liked the way that felt and drove it for 3 years until the warranty was up and all hell started breaking loose. I'm just worried that this might not feel right to me. I will definitely test drive it for sure.
#251 of 278 iPod Cable for Elantra GLS
Aug 22, 2009 (3:55 am)
I just bought a 2009 Hyundai Elantra GLS this week. The dealer told me that my Apple cable for my iPod would work in the USB connector in the Elantra. The manual says that won't work but I tried it and it reads it but it won't show the song name, just the File name. And my iPod shows Do Not Disconnect until I turn the car completely off, so I would not be able to take the iPod out if I were driving. So now I'm thinking maybe I should order the Hyundai USB/Aux cable. But on the Hyundai Accessory Store shows the USB on the left side and the Aux on the right and lists the Elantra Touring but not the Elantra as compatible cars. I'm not sure this cable will work then in the Elantra GLS. Any one else with a GLS able to hook up an iPod with this cable? Many thanks!!

I don't have an iPOD, but rather a "standard" MP3 player and was looking forward to connecting it to my radio either through the USB or "Aux" input. Then it occurred to me - why bother? I just copied everything off of my MP3 to my Jump drive and plugged it right into the USB opening and it worked perfectly - I just use the "seek" button to switch between songs...
Now since all the radio will "read" are MP3 extensions, all I have to do is download some software to convert my audio books to MP3 format and I'm ready to go...

Having trouble with the Hyundai News link.
This contradicts other info I've seen that says the Elantra Blue will be available only with a stick.
I am a little disappointed that this Blue edition doesn't measure up to what Kia did with their "high fuel economy" version of the Forte, e.g. include a 5-speed automatic. But it's better than nothing.

yeah, I have a similar concern. My concern is that SE won't be available with stick shift. I don't understand the 'sporty' version with no manual.
