97 Hyundai Sonata 2.0 — Performance - 2.0 with 95 HP, "not to bad", considering... Build Quality - Scranty gearbox, otherwise nothing! Appearance - Nice interior, but love/hate exterior... Cost of Ownership - All good! Only the rear brakes needed change in a period of 2 years! Fun Factor - Depends on what you put in it :p

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: Good reliable cheap car :)

Cons: Exterior look..

Smooth, quiet ride. Handles nicely. Lane assist is a nice feature. Helps immensely in bad weather when lane lines are hard to see. Read More
