I did have two 2002 Elantras and was extremely happy with both of them...Will soon be going to car auctions to look for a second hand Elantra for 19 yr old grandson....
Will be looking at the 2002/2004 range and trying to find a reasonably low mileage unit....Is there any surefire visual way of identifying if the car has had its timing belt replaced...as they have to be replaced at 60000 mi/96000kms...not much of an opportunity to do much with vehicles at an auction...really dont want to buy something to find that there is a $600 bill for timing belt because it wasnt done...not hopeful but thought I would ask

Most dealerships and reputable mechanics place a sticker in the engine bay with the date and other timing belt info (ie Was the waterpump replaced, mileage, etc).
