First off, many thanks to James for helping me out with the activation, as my hotmail account seemed to swallow the activation e-mail and throw it into the abys somewhere. :confused:

My name is Bryan Baker, I live outside of Marietta, Ohio out in the woods.

I bought our 2003 Elantra GLS last summer. I wasn't too crazy about the car at first. We needed something that wouldn't kill us with the gas, wouldn't kill our budget, and my good old Passat was dying quickly. My wife researched the whole thing figuring she would drive the "dinky car" (that's how I put it) and I would take over the Jeep Grand Cherokee Limited. I test drove the car because my wife knew that if I thought it was a slow dog that we would not buy it. IMO there is nothing more dangerous than an under powered matchbox car, especially when you need some power to get out of harms way, like merging into traffic etc. Needless to say, I was quite suprised when I mashed the accelerator and the car did fairly well, especially for an automatic. One week after the purchase we found out that my wife was pregnant with our third child, so we decided she should probably stick with the Jeep as she would shortly have a tough time getting into the car as opposed to just sliding straight into the Jeep.

I still wasn't that impressed with car, but it had working a\c, didn't cost much, and was fairly new :) Over this short time I have really grown to enjoy the car and appreciate it. I decided to check the web so I could get an education about the car and I find all these cool forums with great info and great people! Something I really didn't expect for a car with such little exposure when compared to other vehicles.

This car just keeps impressing me as time goes on, the more I read about it.

I'm happy to be here and look forward to getting know and learning from all of the great people here!
