I have 84,000 miles on my 2001 Elantra.
Car starts without fail, body has a few parking lot dings,
from the careless SUV drivers mainly.
The clock stopped keeping accurate time within the first 3 months.
The power door looks failed after 5 years.
The safety belts are sloppy and don't retract very well.
The seats are not as comfy as when new.
Have had three windshields replaced, due to rock chips mainly.
Has been very good value for the money, they are nearly double the price
from when I bought it for a new model.
Heh - I've got an '01 elantra as well. 160k miles, I've replaced the
transmission input sensor, transmission output sensor, thermostat,
radiator, and the clock. My power door locks failed, but that's
because someone was stupid enough to put in the fuse listed on the
fusebox when the original burned out (I read on the electrical specs
that its supposed to have a 15amp fuse, not 5amp). The steering and
suspension components are out of whack - steering is sloppy, and
recently, after 10 minutes of driving, there's some noise when driving
and a bad vibration when breaking. The alignment shop says the frame
is bent and I should have the dealer look at that, though at 160k (70k
mine), maybe it's not worth it...
Our 2003 Santa Fe is right at the 140,000 mile mark. No problems at
all. Will have to replace the timing belt a 2nd time soon. Still
