Sorry, Bros and Sis, there are 860+ pages in this thread. It will take long time to go thru.

I would like to know the good and bad about the Elantra 2016 model.

Have there been any major issues before I spend time looking for a resale unit?

So far read about the steering problem in latest posts.

My 2009 Avante requires replacement of bulbs often. Wonder Elantra 2016 also have strong current supply too!?

Thanks for your inputs and sharing.

go for 2017/2018 units if you can as they are newer but the depreciation for used elantras seems to be higher than a new avante in sgcarmart.

 

should just a new avante if you can afford it.

I own the 2018 Elantra. I purchased becos of the attractive price. My previous ride was Civic 10th Gen

Hyundai has not master the steering on high speed. It tends to wobble a little somehow at high speed >120km/hr and gives a floating sensation. The handling is also not sharp and tends to oversteer. The suspension is not firmed & comfort but hard and rigid.

However, if you drive  normally and comply to road speed limit, it is very good for daily drive. It has quiet cabin due to sound proofing by kimono and has very good transmission gearbox. The dash board is very clean and easy to navigate to all parameters during drive. The rear cabin c/w flat floor make entry easy for 3 adults. Fuel economy is estimated 12~13km/L (city drive). Solar film from 3M is very good compare to inferior Rikecool.

Wow nice short review from you. Here mine, I do agree on the steering wheel. However the car come with sport mode which will make steering abit stiffer but it not available for sg version. So no comment on how it drive.

For suspension, i think it is relatively comfortable. It is more hard compare to slyphy but definitely more stable to corner. I think honda civic have better handling but i drove city before, i think elantra still have better handling as compared.

IMO, I like spirited drive heading NSH. The civic gave me more self confidence and a rush of adrenaline.

Civic provides a better road holding and handling. Contrary, Hyundai gives a peaceful and quiet drive in SG.

In my opinion, not fair to compare civic vs avant. Price wise s quite a big gap. Avante vs Kia cerato fairer. Civic vs altis or Subaru maybe same platform.

Just my 2 cents comments

probably not comparison on price but comparison based on the targeted customer group instead. 

 

group 1 (sedans): civic/altis/mz3/cerato/impreza/avante

group 2 (compact sedans): city/vios/mz2/accent/attrage

 

most jap/kor makers in sg have 2 types of sedans in cat A (apart from Kia & Subaru) if we noticed. civic/altis/mz3 are all on the pricier side as compared to cerato/avante but they all fall into the same category except for impreza. 

 

group 2 are the slightly cheaper compact sedans with city/vios topping the charts in terms of price and attrage being the cheapest.

Avante gave me very good road holding and handling on NSH. I guess the traction control helps.

Many people would compare civic vs altis, since both are jap cars made in Thailand. But review it seems like civic overall better.

Why not fair? The pricing is Singapore is abnormal... all these cars compete all over the world in the same category within prices of $1000 or less... so they're definitely comparable... the Civic has always been class leading in terms of ride and handling... the Mazda 3 has caught up ... so those 2 top the group with the Impreza not far behind... the rest of the group aren't tuned for sporty handling, but more as cruisers... so yes they definitely lag behind in terms of ride and handling... however the Avante probably has the best sound insulation on par with Corolla... Civic & Mazda 3 are quite poor in this regard... the bottom of the class is the Sylphy...

Curious. What made you gave up your Civic 10th Gen for Elantra other than the price?

First time new car buyer. Abit confused by this "name your bid" thing with Komoco despite sitting down with SE earlier today. Any kind soul can elaborate? So if I call 20k COE so long as successful bid is around there AD will absorb the difference if slightly higher than the called amount?
And adjust down the final sale price if lower than my called amount?
And will refund me the deposit if fail to secure after 6 bids?

Just a marketing gimmick... go down, they will give you a price with a COE rebate level... this rebate level is basically if the actual COE premium falls below that value, they refund you the difference. Usually it's pegged so low, it won't happen... they'll also give you their estimated COE premium prediction usually... there's this 'name your COE premium' gimmick cos no one is really certain which way the premium will move... so you can actually ask for a lower or higher bid. Lower bid means says if they offer you $75,000, but you prefer $70,000 that means you're asking them to bid $5000 below their expected price... if the COE remains at the current level or drops, you're likely to get the COE cos at $70,000 if they accept your offer, means they have enough margin to get your COE... although you may not get it this round cos they may have other orders with higher margins or running out of bidding cycles to fulfil dips.. but if they say too low, no chance at all, you can still insist on it I suppose, but then again, you have to live with this for the next 6 bidding cycles. If anytime during the 6 bidding cycles, the COE plunges, then you'll get the car... if not wait until the 6 cycles are over coe get your deposit back with some interest lor... ha ha ha... so you want low low price, be prepared to wait long long or never... coe you get lowest priority lar... usually if you take what they offer in terms of price, the chances of getting your car is pretty good... Komoco would have done their homework and worked out how much they need as a margin to bid to obtain the COE with reasonable flexibility to take into account COE premium increases lor...
