Hyundai Elantra 2014: How do I sell my car privately?
The registration needs to be transferred within 14 days of the vehicle being sold. On sale you need to complete and sign the seller’s section (Part B) of the Vehicle Registration Transfer Application (F3520) and have the buyer sign it as well. Keep this as proof of transfer until the registration has been transferred out of your name. The buyer keeps Part A of the form and is responsible for submitting it to Department of Transport and Main Roads.
What is a good second hand family car?
I would rule out the Cruze straight away, they have too many issues with reliability with them to be considered. The Elantra and the Camry are both good cars. Your budget should allow you to buy a 2014 Elantra, but probably won’t stretch to a Camry. You might have to go for a 2012-2013 Camry.
Do South Korean cars use lighter steel?
Hyundai spokesman Bill Thomas replies on behalf of South Korean brands: "Hyundai uses only the finest grades of steel in the construction of its cars — in fact, we are the only car maker on earth that makes its own steel, so we can control its quality to very fine tolerances. It's not thinner or lighter, it's just very high quality. The new Elantra, for example, uses 53 per cent advanced ultra-high-strength steel in its body construction, which makes it 30 per cent stiffer than the model it replaces. It's also worth noting that Hyundai uses a huge amount of Australian iron ore in the construction of our steel, from Western Australia, so there's a bit of Australia in all of our cars."
Fix for Elantra problems?
Hyundai spokesman Bill Thomas says there is definitely a fix for your problem and apologises that you were not advised. Your dealership will be in touch to get the vehicle sorted.
Family car for $45,000
You should test drive the Skoda Octavia and Hyundai Elantra, which both get The Tick from me. The Octavia flies under the radar but is a very good car. The Elantra's recent update improved it vastly and it also has great warranty and service support.
I recently drove an Elantra and was pleasantly surprised, because the original drove quite badly. The value is good on the Trophy, too.
