The specially-designed seats actually move the headrest forward, while at the same time the backrests propel backward, protecting the neck and spine.

Inexpensive and Easy to Maintain

This covers oil changes, lubrication, and other manufacturer-recommended items. Regular scheduled maintenance costs are not included in the Hyundai Elantra coverage. Another important distinction is that it's much easier to locate a Toyota dealership for warranty-covered service than it is to find a Hyundai dealer. That's because there are over 47 percent more Toyota dealerships throughout the United States.
