If you are buying a car that you want to last LONG AFTER the car payments are paid off and to drive till it falls apart, i would buy the Toyota. If you are buying for style, upfront price, and flash, i would buy the Elantra.
I could not agree more. The Corolla is a no brainer purchase. In my experience, the only thing that went wrong with them was the mufflers. Since they are likely stainless steel now, that will not be a problem. My "Toyota Vibe" should survive me. But as the other poster said, if you like something tastier than vanilla, the entire Hyundai/Kia lineup is smokin'. I'd get the new Rio if the car was to be my daily driver.

To even suggest Hyundai makes a car as good as Toyota is way out of bounds. My Camry has 356,000 on it, my wifes Corolla has almost 200,000 on it. I can prove it if necessary. Hyundai does not make a vehicle of this calibur. Their 1.8 in the Elantra is no where as refined as Toyota's 1.8...The Toyota 1.8 is legendary for reliability, kind of like Toyota's 1.5, 2.2, 2.4, 2.7....anyway, If I didn't buy a Toyota next time, I would consider a Honda, or maybe a Subaru or Suzuki.

And thank goodness for that!
BTW, it's "caliber".
