Great Car — Everything about this kind of car is great but unfortunately I am leaving the country and I have to sell the car. Maintenance did not cost me a lot because I did not have any problems with this cars. During the last 3 years, this car needed nothing except oil change, new tires and brakes and periodic maintenance service.

Eric In Minnesota — Other than tire and battery replacement there have been no problems in 70,000 miles. This is my third Hyundai. All have been great cars! My wife drives an 08 Sonata Limited and will never go back to driving a Nissan.

A Reliable Machine. — It is an Excelent car for traviling long distance. It is one of the few FWD cars I have ever driven. It is highly reliable and confertable enought for road trips This particular car Has been driven from coast to coast... LITTERALLY. It isnt fun and I am more of a sports car/muscle car guy, but I can respect the practicallity and endurance of this car.

Looks And Drives Like A High Performance Car At A Reasonable Price. — It performs well in winter weather conditions. The breaking system keeps the car very stable in unstable weather. Accelerates nicely into required conditions. The body of the car is stable and sturdy. It is a silver-blue color with gray interior. It looks like a care worth much more. Maintenance is reasonable. It is a joy to drive knowing I am in a great performing, stylish, safe car.

Pros

The Hyundai Sonata is a V6 engine with dual exaust.

Cons

If you start the car and your seat belt isn't on it makes the loudest noise til you put your seat belt on. It will repeat the same noise if you don't put your seat belt.

A Black Exterior, Gray Interior Sedan. — I like how the Sonata handles. The Sonata is automatic transmittion. So far the car has not needed repairs. I would've preferred a different collor. The Sonata has a good gas milage. The car is fun to drive because it's not jumpy when you push the gas petal.

Perfect Vehicle For Our Needs And Great Value To Boot — Build Quality: No promblems whatsoever. car has only had oil changes and travelled 32,000 kllometres. Car Comparisons: Toyota Corolla and Honda Civic, ut the Sonata had more interior room and was better eqipped for the money. Performance: Very responsive. Car has 175 horsepower and brakes are very reponsive as AbS is standard. More Abo

Good Quality Car Overall :-) — I love this car. Great on gas. I would recomend using 89 octane for one reason, the 87 octane has ethanol which lowers the gas mileage. The trunk is spacious. Plenty of room on the inside for 4 people. Tight steering. Tight handling.

Pros

new car, drives smoothly, tinted windows, soon to get new tires and rims, then possibly blacking out taillights

Cons

doesn't have very good pickup, couple dents in it

Nice Solid Car — Its a nice car, black, tinted windows, drives real smoothly, overall a solid car. Monthly payments are pretty expensive for it. Real good on gas. About 30 MPG. Like the slap-stick transmission feature, gives the car a little more umph. I like it.

Nice Car — the gas mileage is only about 19 miles per gallon. That's just not enough. Also, the Hankook tires that come with the car and cheap quality and I had a flat in under three weeks of driving. Aside from that, it's a great comfortbale car.
