Pros

The room inside

Cons

The throttle pressure (too light) and clutch engagement/feel

A Good Value — We really like our Sonata. It has been totally reliable and still looks great after 40000 miles. The gas mileage is very good, being near 30mpg. It handles the road quite well. The Sonata fufills it's mission in life very well. It is a competent family hauler that will last as long as you want it to. My wife has worn out the tires in 30000 miles, but other than that, it has required nothing but oil changes. We had a 2007 Elantra also with manual transmission and both had no clutch pedal feel and much too light of pressure is required for the throttle pedal. We find ourselves regularly killing the engine when moving from a dead stop.

Great Car, Great Performance. — Its a great car but my mom drives it more that I do so it wouldn't be my first choice. The gas mileage isn't too bad. It it very fun to drive. I don't think that it has many problems other than a few blind spots but all cars have those. It handles well and you don't even notice the acceleration at all. Great car.

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.

Pros

Brakes, Engine, Trunk Space

Cons

Mirrors, Build Quality (Body), Interior Plastics

55

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...?

Pros

The price, the quality, the airbag safety, the price.

Cons

Can't find oil capacity in the owner's manual.  Also nothing about the
timing belt maintenance.

My Wife Is Crazy About It Over Her '99 Maxima — It has every bell and whistle we wanted. The silver blue color is perfect. Bigger and roomier than the '99 Maxima (I inherited), yet is shorter in length.
