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.

ESC, smooth ride

Cons

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.

HUGE 16.7 cubic ft trunk. lots of room even with 5 people. great gas mileage.

Cons

none so far

35

Gooc Car — Great gas mileage. Also good performance. I have the 3.3 v6 with 235hp 205lbft trq. auto manual and cheaper than an accord or bmw 325, yet faster.

Pros

Acceleration, brakes, ride quality, standard features, power at cruising speed (like passing someone) looks that kill, headlights are sufficient.

Cons

fuel economy is not the best, torque steer (moderate, not bad)

35

Hot Rod Sleeper Sedan — I absolutely love my car. It has the 3.3 V6 with 235hp. The handling is ok, it isn't a race car by any means, but when I mash the gas, all hell breaks loose. 1/2 throttle with ESC turned off and I light up the front tires like a Christmas tree. Gas mileage is not the greatest, though I haven't taken it on a trip yet. But I can vouch for a 93 mph 1/4 mile, and so far 110 mph with plenty of peadle left. Its a sleeper, nobody knows what the hell happened when I pass them like they were parked.

Pros

extremely silent, very well assembled, relatively high gas mileage (4 cyl)
manual transmission a lot better then ford fusion, similar to mazda.
mutli-link suspension, frame is rigit.  Huge trunk

Cons

suspension too smooth
brand/name of the car not very 'glamour'

35

Unbeatable Value — was not supposed to buy that car. It did however fit in the price range i wanted to spend for a car so i gave it is chance by trying it. Beated every other brands i've tried. For the price range, car i've looked at were Toyota corolla, mazda 3, ford fusion, nissan versa, honda fit/civic. At that moment, no recent/interesting models at Nissan, GM, Chrysler, Subaru, Kia, Suzuki... I've understood that the best compact car just can't compete with the ride quality of a full size sedan
