2008 Hyundai Sonata Review Ratings
2008 Hyundai Sonata GLS Review
Color, fun to drive, spacious.
Interior color/ wood stuff, cloth seats.
My Car — I basically like my car, its purdy and fun to drive. I wish it had a different interior tho. I like the '09s better as far as interior goes. But it is still a pretty sweet car. I like the color, it is sparkly. I think it looks best in white, some of the other colors make it look like an old person car.
2008 Hyundai Sonata GLS Review
Brakes, Engine, Trunk Space
Mirrors, Build Quality (Body), Interior Plastics
A Good Car — Good acceleration for a four cylinder engine, good braking, handles like a compact sedan, side mirrors seemed to be misplaced. Plastics feel cheap, hood release broke after three months. Large amount of trunk space, headlight bulbs were a pain to change. No fold in mirrors...?
2008 Hyundai Sonata GLS V6 Review
The price, the quality, the airbag safety, the price.
Can't find oil capacity in the owner's manual. Also nothing about the
2008 Hyundai Sonata SE V6 Review
How To Make A V6 Boring — I had to drive one of these "cars" for about three weeks. The ONLY good thing about this car is its engine. The V6 is really punchy, but it's limited by a dumb automatic transmission, heavy feeling suspension, and chronic wheel hop. The exterior appearance is completely inoffensive in every way. The interior looked like it was pieced together out of spare parts with no overall theme. The whole experience just reeked of "discount". Packing a lame car full of luxury features doesn't make it better. It makes it a crappy luxury car. Driving this car sort of sucked the energy out of me, and when I took it back, my wife's Imprezza had never looked so good.
