You really need help!:rolleyes:
Seriously, please just go away. You bring ZERO value to this forum. All you have done is whined and complained. At least I've contributed to this forum with guides and tutorials for people to make use of. Why are you even here? you don't currently, nor do you ever intend to, own a GTS.

Get a grip, you rolled the dice by not buying the 2018. 1.6t + DCT are a mature platform in the North America. Body / Chassis mature in the rest of the world. Hyundai best warranty going. You didn't think it through. Nobody's fault but your own. Go troll a Honda board.
Oh mister smartass, now I am a troll? Hyundai America ****** up this car with idiotic N Line and whoever complains (s)he becomes public enemy No1? Go get some enema and get life.
DCT performs NOT to my liking at all; when I downshift to engine brake rev goes through the roof. Yes, I know how it works but I do not expect rpm to go to 4500 going 50km/h and shifting from 4th to 3rd. HONDA cvt nor 10 speed nor my stick does that ever. It is in range of 2800 max. So I do not want this little car to scream like crazy if I try to use paddles to slow down a car. Understand?
And BTW, I do not buy cars in their first year. I leave pain for those who love to be 'first on the block'. Am I clear enough???

BTW I have not seen not ONE GT in GTA area. Like ZERO. So my confidence in this little car is dropping by the hour. Even dealers have no cars to see and touch. Enjoy your 'niche' car. Dealers/mechanics will have AMAZING experience maintaining and fixing it...

What's your point? We get it, you don't like the car. You said you're buying a Mazda. Go buy a Mazda. Go annoy the folks on the Mazda forums.

Bye bye, you have issues, and it's not car related.

tracking popularity

I saw some numbers posted for California sales. Please post a link to where one can track the number of units being sold by state. I went to Hundai's site and saw Manuals for 2018 GTs, but nothing for 2019, yet. Is this typical of Hundai? I like everything I can find on the Elantra GT N line for its price, but I am having a hard time understanding why more units aren't available and what are the implications (if any) if they only sell this line for a limited time. Thanks for any additional thoughts on where are all the GT N lines and what it means.

I have becom too dependent on an 'edit' feature. Of course that's "Hyundai". I have never looked at one until now so please let that one go :)

So since this is a "niche" car (lol) what are your thoughts on the statement above about mechanics are going to have a crap experience fixing these and getting parts for them. It is a serious issue in my mind as I already have one pain in my arse turbo wagon that takes a gold mine to fix and a miracle to find decent parts for.
I've been torn between the 2018 GT Sport (but I hate the Shiftronic, the one I tested didn't feel right), the 2019 GT N Line, or just waiting and hoping a 2020 N Line comes out here in the US. I too am several hundred miles from the closest N Line and will not be able to go out of state to drive one until 07/27.
Praying for an update on the 2020 model to hurry up and drop, even Hyundai Corp doesn't have a clue when I called for an update last week :( I see a thread about the possibility of the I30 appearing here which seriously makes me want to melt LOL

I don't think the info for the 2019 N-line came out until 2019. It wasn't an august release or anything.
There's nothing fancy about this car I see no reason why a mechanic would have a "crap experience" fixing them. Aftermarket support probably won't be the best regarding getting all sorts of parts at, say, Autozone but I see no reason that one wouldn't be able to get parts for the car.


If you have to drive a couple hundred miles for the right car at the right deal then go for it. I've flown half way across the country several times to get the car I wanted.

The 1.6 turbo power unit is used in several models over the entire line hyundai sells in the USA . Most other parts are off the shelf , sum body panels mite take time to ship . I am an old man i studied this car a good bit with the Dct before purchase as it was to replace another toy , it is fun to drive love the overall package i would not loose sleep over repairs , it is a hyundai problem for a 100,000 miles . every one have agreat day .

Another reason I'm hoping for a 2020 model is then maybe my dealer can direct order what I want here to Virginia. They double the original warranty and cover for 200k miles. That definitely takes a lot of worry out of parts pricing/issues come time for it to start falling apart. lol :D

Anyone considering the Veloster? Ever since seeing the N version my interest in the lower trims have grown.
Can't get comfortable with the rear visibility out of the Veloster, and I don't need the extra stuff on a full blown N car. For me the Elantra N-Line is a perfect fit... if I could only get my local dealers to actually respond and sell me the darn thing... I am shocked that so many dealers A. Don't have a clue what the N-Line is. B. Don't respond to serious buyers.

Its not the first time I heard that about visibility. Hopefully Hyundai makes an Elantra N as hot as the Veloster N. I would buy it.

They already make it...it's just a matter of them deciding to bring it to the USA. It's my understanding they decided to bring the Velocitor N to some regions and the i30N (Elantra GT) to others (nobody gets both).

I just purchased an N-Line a last week and took delivery on Wednesday! One thing I didn't notice during the test drive was the pops from the exhaust. I was reversing into a spot and I could hear the exhaust making small little pops. Yesterday after work in the parking garage, after a night shift, I thought I would try and see if I could get the exhaust to pop a little bit again. I was able to get some pretty loud pops from the exhaust right after a cold start! Can't wait to put an axle back on it and get those pops even louder haha Does anyone have any recommendation for an axle back for the '19 N-Line?

The pops definitely get louder with an axle back. The only options out there are the AFE axle back ($$) which is just a straight pipe and I think the Hyundai OEM option. I took mine to a local shop and got one made up for $250 with new tips. It's pretty loud compared to stock but I like it.
