1999 Hyundai Sonata GLS Review


GREAT ride quality, near luxury quality interior (on a loaded model) at a entry level price, aluminum v6 at an i4 price, 100k PT warrantee  


Expensive required routine maintenance, minor repairs are expensive and unnecessarily difficult, V6 could use more pep


Value Car Not Such A Great Value... But A Joy To Drive — Very comfortable and quite car with loads of features. Had standard features that weren't even available as options on the Accord and cost thousands less. However, the optional V6 was not nearly as powerful as the V6 options for the Accord... It's performance was a HUGE step down from my previous car, a Grand National. Fuel economy was not as good as you would expect for the level of performance, but then, with all the options, even with the aluminum V6, it was a pretty heavy car. I would have loved this car because of its comfort, ride quality, and extra features, however, the ownership cost was excessive. The car had a great warranty, but to maintain the warranty required very expensive routine maintenance. The required transmission services and timing belt changes were astronomically expensive. After the warranty expires, you learn that even simple repair tasks are made difficult and expensive because of poor accessibility to most parts of the drivetrain. Good car with few problems, however, even minor problems carry major repair costs!

lots of power


not a very manly car, few modifications possible


Good Car For Every Day Driving But Not A Tuner At All — Great car, lots of pep. Never owned a Hyundai before and was kinda nervous about the quality but it has put up with the beating ive given it so it must be good. Fastest 'zippy' car ive ever driven, a great car

Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)
