I love mine. DCT can be finicky once in a while in colder weather. Direct injection engines may need the occasional valve cleaning, but this isn't exclusive to Hyundai.

Clean lines. Comfortable interior. IMO one of the best looking designs from Hyundai. Looks even better with nice wheels. Just got new wheels and tires. Took it in for an alignment and the tech said he wished all the cars he's seen were this easy to work on. Literally had the alignment done in less than 10 minutes.

This is the one iv been looking at it’s super clean but it does have 66k miles that’s the only thing I’m kinda skeptical about

Looks like a 2.0 Elantra GT base. Make sure it isn't part of a recall that affected certain date ranges.
The 2.0 was equipped with either a manual or a traditional automatic. The 7 Speed DCT was only available on the 1.6 Turbo, so DCT quirks won't be an issue on the base 2.0.

This is the same color I have, GT Sport DCT fully loaded bought it at 24k miles. Really comfortable ride. Plenty fast for me. However, I have an issue with the evap system within a month of buying the car, p0455 evap leak, its a good thing I bought this with CPO otherwise I probably would have had to put more money into the car aside from the car payments. I live in the mountains, so it can be a bit scary in stop and go traffic, its really nice that it has an auto hold button.
