My Car — I love my car! This thing gives me no problems whatsoever, it runs amazingly and it looks great for being a cheap car. I would definitely recommend this car to anyone my age who needs a car that's going to run well.

Pros

Nice interior, reliable, comfy. Fairly large gas tank; I get from 350-400 miles per tank.

Cons

Handling and acceleration.

It Works, It's Dependable. — Have had this car since 2003 or 2004. It's been reliable the whole time. It drives like a truck and the acceleration is mediocre until it builds up some revs, but otherwise it's a decent car. And you can't beat the warranty, which I haven't had to use for anything major.

Loved This Car! — This was my baby. It had power, handling, control, style, ect. Wish I had not got rid of it. Not much room for more than four people is the only drawback. I needed that extra seat. Lots of trunks pace, great engine, lots of extras.

Cons

It's got the automatic transmission in it.

I Love It Better Then The Ford That I Had Before We Traded In On This Car. — The windows. Even though the pigs keep looking at me once I pass them. Ha Ha I've never had gotten a ticket for the windows. Kiss my butt cops. You'll never get me to take it off. Ok. It's low to the ground which is ok, but I'd like it a little bit higher, and more head room inside.

Good Car With Great Gas Milage. — The car has a smooth ride and gives good gas milage. It is jumpy as it accelerates on the automatic transmission model though. It is very roomy.

Happy Hyundai. Great Ecomonical Family Car. — I cam across this car in a deal where the original owner did not know why the engine was vibrating so much. So I got it at a good price. The vibration was due to a slipping timing belt, which when fixed eliminated the vibration. They recommend timing belt service every 60K miles, and it was at 130k, so the timing belts last longer than they are supposed to. The car is very economical with good gas mileage and cheaper parts. But you give up stylish looks and power for that.

It Is A Very Reliable, Quality Built Car. — I am very pleased with this car, my wife drives it for commuting. It has never broken down. I would recommend this car. We purchased it with 50K, we now have over 100k and it is stone reliable. It needs struts now but there are no rattles or squeaks, I would buy another one but she wants a minivan. We are disappointed in the mpgs though. She averages 24 mpg. For the size of the car, we feel it should be higher.

My Sonata — started having mechanical problems every time i fill up the gas andgo back to start the engine it wont start unless i crank it and press on the gas pedal at the same time then quickly put into drive so it wont die again. i had to put in a new transmission after a year of owning the car.
