Great features and great value. Loved that it had a CD & Cassette Player. Bought my Sonata V6 GLS new in November 2002. Had over 300,000 miles on it as of March 2021, when it stopped working due to some major electrical problems. Were they not so expensive, I would have fixed them and kept the car for longer. Have rented, leased, and owned other Sonatas since, but none looked as striking for their time as the 2002-2005 models. Would definitely recommend Hyundai Sonatas to anyone looking for a great value.

Best Car I Have Ever Owned. — I bought this car in 2003 brand new and it has delivered. Extremely reliable, excellent handling and a beautiful look & feel to it. The only real issue I have had has been the air conditioning has acted up a few times.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Reliable & stylish. Handles great.

Cons: Air conditioning issue on and off..

Great Car — This is my wife's vehicle. I helped her drive it across the US last year. Even on bald tires and over packed she still handled and performed wonderfully. Since then, the car has continued to perform well. Maintenace costs have been minimal, with just normal wear and tear.

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: Comfortable and great power

Cons: Don't own it yet

Pros: great car, powerfull

Cons: dealer repairs

Happy With It For Now... — Performance is better than expected, reliable, load of space in the car. We bit thirsty, but expected with the engine. Cheap to repair and insure. Like the shape - kinda poor-mans Jag lookalike. Like the Semi Auto gear box, which helps the performance when needed

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: Very Comfortable

Cons: 2.4L Auto - Little bit thirsty

It's A Good Solid Car — I like the acceleratoin and the silver paint-job. It's easy to drive. I wish the brakes responsiveness was quicker, but owning the car is pretty sweet. Just cuz the car's a 4-cylinder, doesnt mean it cant have any umph to it. It goes when you tell it to, and the RPM's tack up quickly too. i just love this car.

Pros: It's a Hyundai, and those things last sorever!

Cons: I wouldnt avoid it

2003 Hyundai Sonata — This car is amazing. Suprisingly as a stock model, it packs a powerful punch in overall acceleration. Passing is good. Breaking is good. Roomy interior. Stereo is great. Solid cabin. Very quiet. Plenty of trunk space. Overall its got Mercedes class for 1/4 of the price. Never had a problem under the hood. Never a problem with electrical. Handles like a truck on snow. Never would have expected this from a Hyundai. The car is beautiful stock, (GLS LX Models w/ stock Alloy Hyundai Rims not hubcaps) but I wish it could be a little more versatile on the JDM/KDM market. I want a more solid bodykit. As well as the engine sharing parts with other Hyundai/Kia models, it doesnt make it custom even though its a family car and not a tuner/ricer. Perfect family car. Perfect four-door sedan. Almost perfect tuner. 10/10 rating.

Pros: Handling Acceleration Breaking Interior Exterior

Cons: JDM/KDM for tuners
