My Favorite Car Thus Far — It is the WORST car i've ever driven in winter. And driven probably twenty different cars in winter. I love how it handles any other time of year and I've driven it on long distance road trips. It handles JUST LIKE the 2013 Elantra I drive, which says that the sonata is quality...but that neither can drive on snow or ice.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Great car.Powerful V6, roomy, all the bells and whistles

Cons: The only bad thing about this car is that it doesn't handle well on snow or ice. It is IMPERATIVE that drivers turn off the traction control system to make this car safe to drive!

Reliable, Inexpensive Car. — I like the looks of the car, but more importantly I love the way car drives and performs. Also, the gas mileage is great for a car in this category. So, this car saves you money from the day it is purchased, throughout the lifetime of the car.

Pros: A good reliable very stylish car, with great value for the price!!!

Cons: The passenger side seat could be a lot more comfortable.

I Ended-up Giving It Away (donation). Fell Apart After 100,000 Miles. High Maintenance Costs. — Read the blue book or consumer reports. Not worthy reviewing. When I bought the car I was told it had a certain horsepower, and a couple of months later, Hyundai said they were wrong and downgraded my horsepower (10 less than I thought). Sluggish acceleration. Good gas mileage though. Didn't last beyond 100,000 miles even with regularly scheduled service.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Nothing really awsome; just a good, conventional sedan

Cons: High maintenance costs

Sonata — I think i got the lemon but others are nice....when i first got it, it as nice, drove good, looked good. Now its problematic and i need something different. Just time to swap it in for something different odd for me to have the same vehicle this long. usually swap up every year or something like that.

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: gas mileage is good

Cons: a/c is screwed
