If you can share a few things about your ownership of the 2017+ Hyundai Elantra GT, what would it be? The most liked or hated, share them with every one I am sure you won't be the only one.
You can get a bike hitch (not for towing) from a dealership in Canada. I used AutoValue Hyundai in Seneca Falls, ON, and they were great. Quote via email and shipped in less than a week.Likes: Panoramic roof, ventilated seats, Android auto/Apple carplay, the looks and functionality of the large hatch
Dislikes: Odd cup holder sizes, no heated steering wheel, lack of a receiver hitch for bike racks for the Sport version (all U.S. problems)
I agree with a lot of the responses so far, but I'll make my own list. BTW I have a 2018 GT Sport DCT.If you can share a few things about your ownership of the 2017+ Hyundai Elantra GT, what would it be? The most liked or hated, share them with every one I am sure you won't be the only one.

Like: Understated looks, heated/vented seats, infotainment (I added wireless CarPlay dongle and it's great), ride/handling, pano roof, space for people and stuff, dealership experience (this is rare).
Dislike: OEM tires are terrible (Hankook), US doesn't get heated wheel, DCT acts up sometimes, hard to parallel park*, BlueLink is trash (stopped working and getting someone on the phone to fix it was taking too much time so I gave up on remote start), lack of accessory support from Hyundai.
*Before you all tell me I'm a bad driver, here are the reasons I think it is hard to park: The backup camera is a bit grainy, and the lines don't match up with the car. So if I use the lines, I'm about a foot from the curb. If I try to guess, I hit the curb. My last car was a BMW and the passenger mirror would go down in reverse, so you can see the curb. This car, the mirror is too small and it's impossible to see.
I love this car, more than most other cars I have owned, and the dealership I use is great. I also agree that it should have a limited slip because it struggles to get the power down.
I noticed the turn signal stalk as well. Bugs my non-existent OCD.Biggest pet peeve is the auto setting on the turn signal stalk. Why is the off position flush with the stalk, but the auto setting isn't? Also having to put the wipers into service mode is a huge PITA when cleaning the car or winter conditions.
Overall its an awesome car tho, I don't regret buying it
This annoys me too. I think they were trying to copy BMW to make it fit better in the European market. The double-pull on the locked door is the same as the German cars too.Well, I did buy 17" wheels and Blizzaks for the winter. And I replaced my Hankooks with Michelin Pilot Sport 4S rubber.
There's a noticeable difference, especially in hairpin turns. Cornering grip is much better, and they're quiet.
I did realize one other annoyance; why in the world aren't their power doorlock buttons on the inside of the doors, so I can unlock the passenger/rear doors? This makes zero sense to me. That said, I still enjoy my car.
I think my rattle is coming from the passenger seat or belt.Although the OP was questioning about a 2017, I'll add a couple of dislikes about my 2020.
1. Using the remote start on the Hyundai app on my phone results in the hazard flashers going on. This draws lots of attention. Scenario: It's winter and when in a movie theater, at the end of the movie, I use the app to start the car so it is warmed up inside when I get to it. Stands out like a sore thumb in the parking lot.
2. There is a jingling rattle sound that comes and goes and I cannot find it. I can't even pinpoint what direction it is coming from. Solution is to turn up the volume of the radio!
Yes if the windows are down, I have noticed mine will jingle in the wind. Never used to do that but now it does. I have installed the Korean Red OEM Belts however another GT my family owns does the same thing.I think my rattle is coming from the passenger seat or belt.
