...my trusty but rusty 2002 Accent hatch finally retired from a full-time position and moves to part-time kayak shuttle. Accent performed its duties admirably, after stepping in to fill a role unexpectedly vacated by a Ford Focus lost to an accident. For a time, I thought I'd get another Focus - but not now! The Summit Gray 2018 Elantra GT Sport that I brought home today was worth the nigh on 3 year period of indecision. Now a Focus seems almost unthinkable...I am officially loyal to Hyundai! And if they keep bringing European-flavored handsome, affordable, fun-to-drive-yet-practical cars like the Elantra GT Sport to North America, I will continue to be loyal.
