Great Car! — This car looks and drives like a higher end sedan. Very smooth and quiet at highway speeds. Would be great for any driver. Maintainenance is minimal. Runs great every time and provides a good balance between comfort, style, luxury and sportiness!

Good Price Very Reliable! — Overall Hyundai has came a long way. They are priced well and last with very little to go wrong with them. As long as you rotate tires every oil change and keep up on regular maintenance they will last forever. But I guess that's true with any vehicle. I love my sonata! So much I want a new 2013 or 14. I would recommend hyudai to anyone!

Pros

Very reliable, easy to maintain, no timing belt has (chain), steady firm ride, quiet performance, easy to see controls.  Very good in snow and ice.

Cons

The center console rear brake light (the high one) is a little difficult to change.  Takes about 15 minutes.

Very Clean, — The car is a good riding, very good looking, reliable car. These cars are going 250,000 miles with no problem. The car gets 35 mpg highway and 30 city. If you keep the tires at 42 lbs. you can get 75000 miles easily on this car. It is very easy on tires. The car is easy to maintain and easy to work on. Most of the miles are highway miles, I work 35 miles from my home and go back and forth on I-75 every day.

Reliable Hyundai Sonata — Car was very reliable, handled well in all weather conditions. Has a slick look and is easy to maintain. Never had a problem with parts falling off or breaking down just an overall good quality car. Very fun to drive through the urban roads and also nice and quiet on the highway.

Very Reliabel Nondescript Four Door — As stated the size and fuel economy. Very comfortable on the highway and gets above 30 mpg. The manual transmission is not suited for the clutch and size of the car. Purchase price was a steal. Has been 100% reliable.

Can't Go Wrong With This One — Safe sturdy car. Hit a deer at 90km/h, didn't barely feel anything. Good on gas, comfortable cruising car. Lots of guts! Sharp appearance, I would buy another. Plenty of interior room, front and back. The four doors make everything more convenient.

Good First Car — Cost - easy on the gas mileage, not too bad on the maintenance. Unfortunately this car isn't really made for performance. Build Quality could be better. Its a very comfortable ride. Some problems with whirling noise. Definitely built for those long rides.
