Cons

I didn't get it sooner

Perfect — everyting - for a commuter driving 80+km one way to work it is perfect. Quiet, great power, amazing fuel economy, and an awesome stereo - everything I need. Love the iPod hook-up and XM radio, in fact it plays music right from a usb stick. The information even appears on the screen and it can be controlled by the steering wheel controls.

Pros

Fantastic car for driving on icy streets (in manual overdrive), responsive engine with great pick-up, comfortable and luxurious, great fuel economy, reliable and low maintenance cost

Cons

Interior noise is the only negative that stands out with this car model

Outstanding Value - Reliable, Comfortable Sedan — I purchased this car new and have never had any complaints. Routine maintenance has been performed regularly and the only other maintenance that's been required in the past seven years are new tires and a new battery. The manual overdrive has proven itself over and over as a great asset for driving on icy roads in Denver. I've gotten great mileage and the engine is responsive and powerful.

You Cannot Buy A Better Car For Your Money. I Am Sold On The Sonata 100%. — I love the way the Sonata looks. It's got very sporty lines that make it look sleeker while it has an incredibly roomy interior. The trunk space is huge and the seats fold down. The instrument panel is very intuitive and driver-focused. The car feels solid when you drive it and the ESC works amazingly on ice. Solid build quality and the performance is great. The only downside is the shifting is a little jumpy when accelerating. Handling is very precise and responsive.

Pros

Car runs great, very comfortable driving, specially for me as im quite tall person. 30 miles per gallon on a highway. Just got the engine replaced, sunroof, bluetooh, leather seats. its a GREAT car.

Cons

The right rear tire needs to be replace. Some minor scratches. The the scroll button of the  window on the driver seat needs to be fixed, but it works fine.

Excellent — I've owned this car for about 5 months and i travelled all over california with it and it was just great. It didn't let me down, very comfortable driving, so no reasons to be afraid of long distances. Has a pretty big trunk, so space is not an issue.

Worst ride of any car I have ever been in.

Bump, Bang — Worst car I have ever been in over bumps. Bangs over even small bumps and makes a noise like something is lose. The dealer says it is normal for this car. If that is true no one should ever buy one. The interior is nice. The looks of the car are ok also. Its got good interior room. Changing from original tires made a big difference in the ride. I tried Goodyear comfort tread. Now the ride is tolerable.

Love My Little Car — Really a nice little car. Does great on gas, has options I love (XM, Sunroof) and is very affordable. Any issues we have had have been covered by their awesome warranty. My parents have the new body style, and while it's nice. I like driving my car better.

This Car Has Great Features For The Price - Awesome Family Car With Navigation For Those Day Trips. — Met all our expectations of style, features and affordability. Warranty is excellent as is fit and finish. Blue paint seems prone to small road debris chips but overall a solid, comfortable car. Infinity radio provides excellent sound and voice activation makes it easy to control hands free.

Very Good, Dependable Car. — Adequate entertainment in the cabin, comes standard with usb, aux, mp3 player, AM/FM stereo. Surprisingly great acceleration and best feature is the quiet engine and the quiet ride. Smooth transmission and good gas milage. Best Hyundai I have had.

Pretty Good For The Price. — Power is great, paint and finish is superb ( keep in garage), steering is so-so, voice activated nav and radio is good, wish we had a passenger power seat, gets about 31 mpg if steady run at 65 mph on hwy. only extra we don't have is BluConnect. Dealer wanted $400!, I find it fun to drive. P.s. Still have original f&r brakes at 52000 miles!!! Just changed tires at 49000 mi.
