    Info on my '05 Elantra 2L, auto trans.
    I purchased the car on Oct 27, 2005 and tomorrow it will be one year
    old. I have slightly more than 21,000 miles on it. This is my
    maintenance info:
    2500 miles Dec 12, 2005 Lube, oil, gasket and filter n/c
    5989 miles Jan 16, 2006 Lube, oil, gasket and filter n/c

    13738 miles May 31, 2006 Lube, oil, gasket and filter n/c

    assembly P/N 93570-20110-as warrantee n/c
    16525 miles Aug 01, 2006 Lube, oil, gasket and filter n/c

    Replaced both right and left wiper blades
    part number 98350-2d800 $17.98
    part number 98370-2d800 $17.98

    All work done at dealer, Oil is Pennzoil 5W30

    Mileage:
    City 25.+ MPG
    Suburban 28.+ MPG
    Freeway at @65 MPH, 33.+ MPG
    High Speed @102 MPH avg 28.8 MPG

    On the high speed section I drove the first 100 miles at 70 MPH and
    for the next 300 miles I never went less than 90 MPH and at times
    over 115 MPH. After the first 100 miles a guy with a ton of antenna
    and all kinds of stuff on his dash board blew past me. I hooked up
    with him for the next 300 miles I would let him get about a quarter
    mile or more in front of me. The only time I slowed down was for
    traffic. At times cars got between him and I and I would have to go
    like a bat out of hell to catch him. That's when I was going over
    115+ MPH. I finally had to stop for gas as the fuel warning light was
    on. The car rode rock solid, no float, no lift, no sway. The car rode
    smooth. Surprisingly the tach never went to high. I don't remember
    what the tach numbers were but I remember being surprised at how
    relatively low they were for that high of a speed.

    On the freeway I usually start looking for gas around 410 to 420
    miles.

    My oil changes are at no charge from my dealer as long as I own the
    car. Its a new dealership and I was the first car they sold.

    So I take it you love your Elantra, correct? ;-)

    I am not surprised at your report having owned 3 Elantras since 1993 the
    most recent being a 2002 EGT.
