    Overall Experience Was Positive. — Had few problems with this vehicle. Put we'll over 100,000 miles before it started showing its age. I bought it new off the lot and will be looking to buy another Hyundai over the next few weeks. It's good on gas and reliable.

    Pros: Great car! Extremely reliable with an excellent warranty...best in the business!

    Cons: None

    I Love This Car — I love how many miles to the gallon I get and how easy it is to steer and control. I really don't like how it handles in the winter time. This car is super reliable I have not had one single brake down nor have I had to replace anything on my car.

    Pros: 4 cylinder is great on gas! I drive to Monroe every Sunday 120 miles back n forth I am at 198,000 miles and it still runs just as good as when it was purchased. comfortable. kid accessible. big windows. great push.

    Cons: does not accelerate quite as well as I want it to. sometimes gives me anxiety getting on the highway when it doesn't pick up as quick as it needs to also shifts kinda hard.

    Great Car — Lots of pep when entering ramp and freeway and merging into traffic, and when passing another vehicle. good gas mileage. Rear window even with front so I can easily see where I am backing. Important since I am so short!

    Pros: Leather Interior, Sun Roof

    Cons: Radio has short so skips to CD at times, then skips back to radio.

    Tainted On Hyundai's :( — My Oldsmobile had 150,000 miles on it so my parents wanted to buy me a car that was more reliable. Bought this Sonata and only had 27,000 miles on it, plus a great 100,000 mile warranty. Little did I know how "MUCH" I'd be using this warranty. Had it three months .. broke down in THE MIDDLE of the road. (No warning whatsoever) Timing belt had broken, plus two additional MAJOR things. (Can't remember) Was in the shop for a week. No longer than I had it back and was feeling secure the same thing happened AGAIN! Right in the middle of the road. (Again no waning) This time there was "arking?" under the hood. Had to have it towed in. Again, one week. Then ... the power windows (both) began to "stay" down and wouldn't shut. Since then I've had one small thing after another. I wouldn't own another Hyundai. It struggles for power at a stop and always has. I should have kept my Olds. Bought it at an auction for $3,500, kept it for 6 years and the only thing that was 'ever' replaced on it was an alternator and a starter. If you plan on buying this vehicle, better think twice. Maybe I just got a dud. Lol

    Primary Use: Family transportation

    Pros: Descent gas mileage. Roomy. Large trunk. Easy to control.

    Cons: Lots and "lots" of repairs. Low power. Expensive centhetic oil.

    It Gets The Job Done, And Lasts A Good While. — Likes: Handles fairly well, has a comfortable, smooth ride, and has been running for nearly 10 years now. Dislikes: Even with a V6 under the hood, the engine pushes out too little power, but when I tell it to push, it does just that. Performance: Not the fastest, but it gets the job done. Brakes are decent for the car, and handling is perfectly fine. Build Quality: Only recently last year has the transmission died, and had to have been replaced. The engine however, runs fine. Appearance: It's an old Sonata... It's bland. Cost of Ownership: Not much maintenance is needed, and gas mileage is decent. Fun Factor: Not really, no.

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: It's a hand me down. My mom used it for work.

    Cons: It's not fun, and you'll be made fun of.

    Buy-again — Decent car. I have the 2.4 L engine V4. Feels like a V6 on bumps and uneven roads. Good for running around city. Lot of problems with the car though. Don't buy if you are not up for some repairs.

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: Decent drive

    Cons: overall problems

    Boring But Average — The performance is forgettable, the fuel economy is nothing to write home about, repairs are expensive but mercifully infrequent, the styling is a cross between a bug and that car you forget, and it is very little fund to drive. I like it. Why? Because I have driven it between 97,000 KM and 170,000 km with virtually no problems not stemming from wear parts like breaks, shocks, ball joints and the timing belt.

    Pros: It keeps running and running

    Cons: you have to keep driving it and driving it.
