Quality was pretty dodgy in this era,but if it is cheap enough.

I think you will find that the Elantra wasn't introduced to the Hyundai model range until 2002.

As far as whether this is the right place, it seems that anything goes now.

That would be a Lantra not an Elantra, although it was an elantra in other markets.

Had a 1996 lantra auto strip splines in gearbox just out of warranty. Repaired by Hyundai dealer for labour cost only.

Told by a relative who had a transmission repair business that this tranny was almost identical to the early magna ones and they both had similar problems.

I currently use a 2004 hyundai elanta to drive to and from work...a distance of 130 K's there and back....and it is brilliant and reliable and very cheap to run....that was until a jinormous roo tried to take me out...and now it is in the panel beaters getting fixed....and i hope to have it back soon

A very good car and I would have another.

Now I own this one and my wife drives the Tibruon....she loves that...both are very reliable....two of my kids have the hyundia accents...and they are both bombproof....but watch out for roos!!!!

My Mother in law bought one new.
That was the biggest piece of garbage built..next to a camira.
The motor blew up 3 times, tranny once, more electrical gremlins than you can poke a stick at, paint faded.
2.5 yrs old and it only had 101,000km on it when she traded it.

The best way to tell if any vehicle of that age is reasonable or cr@p...keep an eye out and see how many are on the road today, I bet you won't see many Lantras.

I would have thought there are plenty of better options than buying this vehicle without knowing your need. Older Hyundais can be a nightmare to get parts for and repair.
