Three days, 300 miles... 2019 ES DCT w/premium.
No dislikes. I do feel, at this point, the one weak point are the Hankook tires.
I am running 93 octane and plan to continue using it.
My car runs very smoothly, DCT shifts are fast and seemless and I feel almost no dual clutch hesitation from standing starts. The brakes are not grabby, they are very well modulated.
Cruise control is extremely accurate and holds speeds right on the mark. Bonus - my selected set speed is shown in the center display.
My 2019 has three drive modes - Normal, Sport and Smart. I have mine set to Smart. It has an indicator in the center display that displays at what level you're operating the vehicle. It will show Normal or Eco or Sport. I'm certain this is controlled with gas pedal use. I absolutely love the new wheels! I like it...
I am not thrashing the car... No full power acceleration, hard braking or other extreme moves. I do not intend to track the car, auto cross or street race. I just want to simply enjoy the whole "Sport Experience". No plans to mod my car.
I loved the looks of my 2018 Elantra (Value Edition). I'm getting used to the looks of my 2019, it's growing on me.
