Clean, Comfy, Classy Car — I like the looks and roominess of the car. I dislike the road noise. I wish the cabin was insulated better. The gas peddle is a bit touchy. It gets good gas milage and makes for a nice commuter car. Good sound system too! The technology is great: back up camera and gps are awesome!

Great Overall Car For The Money — Overall, this car drives great. Was very affordable. Good on gas. Also seems to hold the corners very well, and has good acceleration The safety systems on this car also work very well. The technology in his car is also very easy to use. The Bluetooth system links up well with your phone and it's easy to use

Pros

Good handling in all situations, and speeds. Sensible controls, well designed, with easy to reach cruise, blue tooth and essential controls.

Cons

Gas mileage.  I expected 33+ overall but tend to get only 29mpg. I personally don't like the LED lighting on the radio display: its too bright when the car engine is off/power on.

Solid Car With Less Than Steller City Mpg — Great handling, very good acceleration. Stops very short distance. Nice styling. I always feel safe driving this car!! MPG in the city could be better, as I usually get 25 in the city and 32 highway. The back seat 60/40 release latch are located in the trunk and a bit awkward to keep unlatched before pushing both seats down but its doable.

Super Car Great Value And Reliability — Superb car. Great fuel economy. Spacious trunk and cabin. Impressive acceleration . Reliability. Attractive design and has most modern conveniences; MP3,Bluetooth, USB. The Hyundais retain their value and from what I've seen as reliable as their Japanese counterparts. On the mark on all levels!

Pros

Above average fuel economy, sleek looks , comfortable ride, good performance and over err all excellent acceleration. From my research Hyundai stacks up or even exceeds the
Longevity and reliability of its Japanese counterparts.

Cons

Parts and repair can be a little pricier.

Practical ,great Performance And Ride — Exceeds my expectations on almost all levels! Can satisfy the family sedan needs, techier Need and a good amount for those looking for good performance too! I'll admit I wasn't a Hyundai person prior to inheriting this vehicle but now I am convinced they're more than legit.

Content — The car has a lot of features you find in the typical higher end cars, like heated leather seats. The stock entertainment system is more than adequate, I wouldn't consider trying to upgrade with aftermarket. The Sonata huggs the road and has a reassuring feeling of control. It is fast and powerful, even with the small motor. I don't know how Hyundai does it but I almost feel it is quicker than the two corvettes I used to own. I got a fair deal and good value , in my opinion. I think this year even looks better than the 2015 model hybrids.

Pros

It gets excellent gas mileage and is a very sleek looking car. It rides comfortably both for driver and passengers. It's not too big or too small.

Cons

I honestly love this car but I am looking for something with more storage space like a hatchback or crossover.

Great Car And A Great Deal! — This car is fun and easy to drive. It runs smoothly and is a gas saver. I average about 30-32 miles per gallon on a tank of gas with a good mixture of city/highway driving. Truly a great car!

Cons

A Head Turner!! — Superb design, affordable price and maintenance, comfortable ride, powerful and economic. Two color interior gives it a refined look and a even more charm to a very well designed interior. Nissan, Toyota, Honda, Chevy, don't get even close to it's good looks, Ford however could make a run at it with the new fusion. Overall a very nice car, a pleasure to have.

Like New Condition 2011 Sonata — More usable room, Softer seat, Well equipped interior, High safety scores Fuel efficient four-cylinder engines.

Sonata Is A Fabulous Sedan That Has All The Right Stuff ... Thumbs Up! Way Up. — Absolutely awsome car for the price! If the looks were not enough, the ride comfort and list of standard equipment will convince you...Great power and excellent cobination of fuel economy. The Attention to the cockpit and interior is nothing short of Lexus...This is the car Toyota and Honda are going to wish they had been building! At 11,000 now, glad I got mine when I did... a waiting list is now the norm to get one! Fun to Drive? It doesn't get better than this for under $24K Thumbs Up Hyundai... Toyota and Honda: You better wake up.
