guyz,

Despite of selling nearly 1400 units since its launch Hyundai is all set to give a face-lift to the Elantra !!! But what is more amazing is the fact is that they are willing to supply the face-lift kits to the existing Elantra buyers through dealerships absolutely FREE !!!!

hahahaha! Poor Hyundai! Its not even been a few months and they are already making changes. If thats not the sign of a below par product, I don't know what is!

Maybe they should go back to the previous gen Elantra nose, which I think looks a bit better.

in their attempt to add a vertical chrome grill and flashy headlights hope hyundai don't transform the elantra from an overgrown accent to an undersized sonata

Seems like Hyundai has been watching a lot of "Ekta Kapoor's" seriels. She makes faclifts seem so convenient.

They've had more faclifts in those seriels than the number of times Mclaren has had to change engines.

BTW, anybody interested in having Schumi's face?

Well, you gotta credit them with a speedy response. And its sheer customer caring to offer free kits of previous owners.

free facelifts for all customers! that's fantastic, nobody else cuts it with the customers like hyundai does. got to give them credit for that. if not for anything else. and they seemed to have managed to build up resources for instantaneous facelifts as well. i wonder if they have an indian R&D arm to take care of these? just like Maruti?? i hope it's for the better though.
