The Elantra is cheaper, a lot cheaper and to many a better value.

Surprised CR says first year reliability issues have been worked out. Maybe they are just referring to the Auto shifting
Than an LS? Nope...I'd take the LS. Surprisingly a lot of car for the money, even if the engine is weak compared to a Civic.

The Elantra doesn't feel like it has the 148 hp they claim (Cruze is faster AND heavier), nor does the Sonata feel like it has 197 (Camry/Accord are much peppier). I think they over-inflate their claims like they did the MPG.

I had an LS with MT as a loaner for two days a while back, and it seemed fine to me. Not as fun as the 1.4t, but for the money, I would have been happy with an LS. Are there reliability problems that warrant calling the 1.8 a bad engine?
Not really. If anything, the 1.8's on the forum are proving to be the most reliable.
