You Know You Want This!! — My Sonata is a great reliable car. It looks great, and handles awsome. I mean its not a truck but it will do for now. It has more than enought speed to keep me happy for now. I love my car and wouldnt trade it for any other CAR out there..give me a truck and you got a deal lol.

Pros: Has a classy look, but still is sporty, its a great first car

Cons: Not a truck

Scott's 2nd New Car — He traded up for this car with the Tiburon and it had a much better feel and fit to it. I enjoyed driving this car so much that we eventually traded and I drove it and he drove the mini-van. It had a lot of recall issues though and even though it was under warranty it had a lot of things go wrong with it to the point that it would barely start.

Pros: Nice size, nice drive, fair gas mileage

Cons: Lot of recall issues

It Works, It's Dependable. — Have had this car since 2003 or 2004. It's been reliable the whole time. It drives like a truck and the acceleration is mediocre until it builds up some revs, but otherwise it's a decent car. And you can't beat the warranty, which I haven't had to use for anything major.

Pros: Nice interior, reliable, comfy. Fairly large gas tank; I get from 350-400 miles per tank.

Cons: Handling and acceleration.

Good Car With Great Gas Milage. — The car has a smooth ride and gives good gas milage. It is jumpy as it accelerates on the automatic transmission model though. It is very roomy.

Drives Like A Mercedes — The acceleration is awesome, it has quite a kick when getting up to speed and growls a bit as well. Not like a beast, but like it has actual balls without being a muscle car or fancy sports car. The only repairs I've done so far is switching out the headlights, first the right went out then the left. The Appearance looks very nice. The 04' Hyundai Sonata closely resembles the 2005 Mercedes Class E as well as the Jaguar S Type since the Sonata was designed and modeled after these two luxurious cars. This car is fun to drive. I like drifting it around highway exit ramp loops and drag-racing at the stoplights. Definitely a fun and easy to handle car.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: I love my car because it looks like a Mercedes and has custom sub-woofer speakers so I can play my rap as loud as I need to hear the bass. The bass in my car rattles the back seats and all of my mirrors.

Cons: I don't hate anything about it. =)

2004 Hyundai Sonata Review
GuruXZDLC says:
The Sonata was a great car as a first car. It has some of the best seats I think I have ever had the pleasure of sitting in. So any other car I may sit in or have sat in would not meet this cars level of comfort. I personally owned the GLS, so I had a V6 engine and you could tell, that thing had a lot of power despite its weight. The only big issue with this car is its road handling, it doesnt handle curves well. You try and take a sharp turn, you can feel the wheels in the back give way and you might even hear some wheel screeching. Its a front wheel drive car so it doesnt do well in rain or snow, I found traction to be a constant issue. It doesnt have the best gas mileage out there, but for its year, its not too bad (Im referring to the GLS specifically). Interior decor, however, is tacky and outdated. Nothing says grandmas car quite like plastic wood trim...

Handling Ranked 2007 Hyundai Tiburon GS FWD better.
"Its a sports car, it has a lower center of gravity and thus handles curves a lot better. Plus it is equipped with better tires (usually, if yours isnt, get better tires). "
Front Seats Ranked 2007 Hyundai Tiburon GS FWD worse.
"Front seats have reached god like status in terms of comfortability, not sure any other car could live up to it."
Back Seats Ranked 2007 Hyundai Tiburon GS FWD worse.
"Theres a lot more foot room in the back seats, plus the seats are far more comfortable."
