Ownership Review of the 2005 Hyundai Elantra GLS 2.0L 4 Cyl. Sedan (4 Door)

Car Displayed: 2005 Hyundai Elantra GLS 2.0L 4 Cyl. Sedan (4 Door)
Video Description

The 2005 Hyundai Elantra GLS is a moderately difficult vehicle to maintain, but shouldn’t be too hard for those experienced in vehicle maintenance. You will have to move the battery out of the way for access to the headlight bulb on one side. Other models do not require this complex step. To change the taillight, you will have to completely remove the housing first. This will require more tools than usual. The engine coolant reservoir is located deep in the engine bay. This will make it tough to check the fluid level.

Some things are easier on the 2005 Hyundai Elantra GLS. The components of the spare tire are easily accessible in the rear of the vehicle. This keeps the tire and jack kit ready to go in case of emergency. Changing the front wiper blade is no problem. Other models will require the use of tools when attempting to change your blade with reliability. Checking the oil level is easy to do, as the oil dipstick is easily accessible in the engine bay.
