Default Yay! HD Elantra!

Well, I figured a fitting tribute to the venerable LC Accent would be... another Hyundai

We could have easily bought another Accent, but now that I'm over 30 not climbing in and out of a 2 door hatch is desirable. I would have preferred a manual transmission but the automatic surprisingly isn't too bad. Really good on fuel on the highway but gets a bit thirsty around town.

My wife claims it's "boring" - any ideas?

I honestly don't get this part. What's the attraction of a 4-door over the 2-door hatch?

*Children in car seats
*Elderly passengers in rear
*Easier access to rear of cabin

If I was still single and 20, then I'd agree with you

Yes, we're finding that little attribute has been demanding - coming off a week straight of 40c+ temperatures with no window tinting is noticeable (but the A/C works awesome!)

Oh, okay! I was just confused because you wrote 'now that I'm over 30 not climbing in and out of a 2 door hatch is desirable' and it sounded like being over 30 (I'm way past 30) made it harder to get in an out of a 2-door car. Didn't realize you had a use for the back seat. Mine holds a jacket, a towel (I always have a towel with me) and my camera bag if someone's in the passenger seat. I've never actually been in the rear of this car... then again I owned my last car for 11 years and never got in the back either

Ironically Voivod - my other car (normal commuter) is a 1984 Mazda 626 4dr sedan - and nobody has been in the back recently either

And for those that ask - yes I prefer the older car on the highway to and from work - the Elantra is more suited to wifey (feels like I'm driving a simulator on long trips)
