Has anyone noticed when driving down the road and you hit a bump the rear end sways? It feels as if the entire rear shifts to the left or the right. Someone in the Hyundai forums mentioned this. There is a fix for this issue. You purchase a rear under sway bar and It keeps the back end from shifting. They say it also reduces body roll. Here is the bar if anyone is interested. I will be purchasing one in the future. Also to mention it fits the GT and Coupe models as well that I have read.

I feel the car is a death trap without that sway bar . We the owners should not have to pay for a part to keep there vehicle properly driving down the road . I don't understand how this flawed design even got past the drawing board . Did you also know that Hyundai did not even test this car for towing a trailer ??? . Dont you think that that is strange because all previous Elantra's can tow and they also drive down the road correctly without scaring the pants off you and making you feel like you are driving a piece of junk !!!

KYB shocks are what I've heard is the best answer. When $ comes back around, I plan to do both. They're really not that much, and I plan to install them myself, but such is the life of this poor family man.

Obviously you don't spend much time driving small cars as this is typical behavior for anything that doesn't come from the factory with anti roll bars. And besides, it's only a "death trap" if you drive it like a fucking idiot who thinks he's on a race track instead of a public road, in which case "death trap" suddenly applies to everything with 4 wheels. If not your death, then quite possibly someone else's. I have NO trouble with my Elantra's handling when driven properly.

Why would they? ANY car can tow a small trailer. If you're​ wanting to tow a big trailer with the Elantra, well, I don't even need to finish that one. I use to pull a trailer with a riding lawnmower 30 miles to my grandma's house, and 30 miles back every week in my little Ford Escort. It did it no problem, so I don't think the Elantra would be an issue.

I love these people who buy a regular economy sedan and then bitch when it doesn't handle like a race car, ride like a Cadillac, or pull a house.
