Pros

Very Comfortable

Cons

2.4L Auto - Little bit thirsty

35

Happy With It For Now... — Performance is better than expected, reliable, load of space in the car. We bit thirsty, but expected with the engine. Cheap to repair and insure. Like the shape - kinda poor-mans Jag lookalike. Like the Semi Auto gear box, which helps the performance when needed

Pros

Handling Acceleration Breaking Interior Exterior

Cons

JDM/KDM for tuners

55

2003 Hyundai Sonata — This car is amazing. Suprisingly as a stock model, it packs a powerful punch in overall acceleration. Passing is good. Breaking is good. Roomy interior. Stereo is great. Solid cabin. Very quiet. Plenty of trunk space. Overall its got Mercedes class for 1/4 of the price. Never had a problem under the hood. Never a problem with electrical. Handles like a truck on snow. Never would have expected this from a Hyundai. The car is beautiful stock, (GLS LX Models w/ stock Alloy Hyundai Rims not hubcaps) but I wish it could be a little more versatile on the JDM/KDM market. I want a more solid bodykit. As well as the engine sharing parts with other Hyundai/Kia models, it doesnt make it custom even though its a family car and not a tuner/ricer. Perfect family car. Perfect four-door sedan. Almost perfect tuner. 10/10 rating.

Great — I liked the power from this 2.4 4cyl. It goes fast! Had it to 100mph without knowing, slowed down fast! great miles pre gallon , 30 at 70 miles per hour with the a . c . on..Only problem with codes are hard to understand.

Pros

It's a Hyundai, and those things last sorever!

Cons

I wouldnt avoid it

35

It's A Good Solid Car — I like the acceleratoin and the silver paint-job. It's easy to drive. I wish the brakes responsiveness was quicker, but owning the car is pretty sweet. Just cuz the car's a 4-cylinder, doesnt mean it cant have any umph to it. It goes when you tell it to, and the RPM's tack up quickly too. i just love this car.
