Good Car For The Price And Can't Beat All The Safety Features. — The car overall is pretty good. The gas mileage on mine was not good at all. I got about 16 in the city and maybe 25 on the highway. The power is good it gets up and goes when you punch it. The car rides nice and is a good family car or for somebody looking for a new car and the warranty is great. I had to have the radio replaced for moisture and something squeaked in the seat and it was all covered no questions asked. I think Hyundai is gonna be equal to Toyota eventually. They are a good made car and solid and quite.

Pros

Its power even though its only a four cylinder and a midsize sedan.

Cons

Electical Problems.

Ok If You Find One With Low Miles. — Good car overall. Has a lot of power for only a four cylinder. Yet, during this model year and what i have experienced it will have electric problems. It can be a fun car to drive if you drive it for awhile and get to know what it can and can't do.

Pros

build quality, reliability and features for the price.

Cons

slippery steering wheel and my car had no lumbar seats.

Excellant Car For Daily Use — Performance - adequate for a 2.4ltr engine, braking good and handling a bit firm. build quality :- excellant, 4.5yrs & 101000kms , one accident and no squeaks/rattles. Appearances:- I liked the exterior more than the interior. Cost of ownership :- no maintenance cost, highway driving i managed to get 33mpg and got a good price when i sold the car. fun factor :- Not actually a sporty car or luxury car to have fun but a serious car for commuting long or short journeys. My experience with this car was good and Ii then decided to upgrade myself to full option Azera 3.3ltrs.

Best Car Ever Driven, Includin The Passat — I bought this 2006 Sonata premium in sept 2oo5. We wre now jan. 2010. I had no problem whatsoever, only oil changes. Very satified with it. I never expected this result. I have 41000 kms, about 25000 miles. I would buy another Sonata without hesitation.

gas mileage

Nice — This is a good family car, but with a little speed. The gas mileage could be better, it gets a little better gas mileage than my chev silverado did in the city but it gets good hwy mileage. No major repairs to it. It looks sleek and makes u feel like u have some money.

It's A Great Car — Well if I may say I'm dissapointed right now it's turning over but not starting. Other than that when it runs I love it. I want a BMW though, but I need to pay off this car first. The performance is great when running The gas mileage is good not great but I drive it around torrington, what can I say

Pros

Straight line performance and styling

Cons

Boring car!

35

06 Sonata — very underrated vehicle. 0-60 in 6.6sec, 230KM top end. very much a wolf in sheep's clothing. downside it is a big car and feels the part. this car is at home on the highways not on the streets. all in all it is actually a pretty boring car unless you are beating it like a rented mule.

Pros

acceleration, braking, handling, price

Cons

the negatives don't factor in due to the price...meaning that the clothe interior and plastic moldings are cheap, but so is this car.

35

My '06 Hyundai Sonata V6 — acceleration - For the size of this 4 door sedan it is amazing. 0-60 in or around 6 seconds. handling - With advanced ESC, dodging big rigs at 80 MPH is a breeze :-P braking - 60-0 is just as impressive...just watch out for mullets. Fun factor - Out of 10...I would an 8. This car cost so little, but is very fun to drive.

Timing Chain rattle, seats squeak sometimes.

Best Car For The Money Out There — All kinds of options and standard equipment on a car for way less than the competition pretty much sums it up.
