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

Boring car!

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.

3.3 L V6 that gets 31 MPG

Cons

Boring to drive

Good College Student Car; There Is A 2.4 L Version Too... — Hyundai's redesign of the Sonata drives great and feels nice to be in. First car I've ever seen that draws 31 MPG hwy out of a V6. It's kind of boring inside except for the Mach Audio system and good working climate control. But, I think the coolest thing they have added is the digital trip computer which now also tells you gas mileage, time driven, and miles to empty along with trip.

Stylish, fun-to-drive, easy-to-live with performance.

It makes my beater '92 oldsmobile feel that much older.

Simply Cannot Be Beat For Its Price. — I honestly have nothing but good things to say about this car. Opting for the 235 hp v6 was a wise decision...as the car can definitely put a smile on your face down a Pennsylvania back road. On a more serious note, the car is simply easy to live with. Comfortable, solid, easy to drive. On the annoyance side, the driver's seat needs some wd-40 as it squeaks a bit, I've just been too lazy to get to it. Gas mileage is decent for a v6...we average about 22-24 mpg around town, in the mountains of western PA. I did have to use my warranty, twice...once for a timing chain tensioner, and again for a startlingly failed alternator. No problems since then, and the car truly is a joy to drive, whether you're pushing it to its limits, or just running errands.

Performance, Stock MP3 Radio, wheel mounted controls

Cons

No track skip for CDs on steering wheel, price of keeping the flipping car at younger ages

My Sonata — This car overall is amazing. I have the 3.3 litre version and it is just peppy as hell. It has more than enough get up and go for any situation. The stock radio is up to par, and this is if you have the MP3 player CD deck. Sadly the head unit is the only thing left audio wise that is stock the rest is aftermarket. Infinity 6.5s all around and 2 12 inch audiobahns in the trunk...sounds great. I would say check the price of owning it as far as insurance goes, I am 22 and a good deal for me stands around 148 a month most other places wanted 220 plus a month and i do not have any tickets or accidents. The car its self is amazing and very solidly built. Get one if you have the opportunity to or at leaste take one for a drive.

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.

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.

Great Car — I love my car! The performance of the car is great. I have taken it on long trips and it handles very well. Gas mileage is about 20 miles per gallon in town. I really enjoy this car and would recommend it to anyone.

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.
