Comfortable Ride For Long Commutes — The car accelerates, brakes and handles well. It is a very safe car with child restraints and airbags (including a front passenger seat automatic off for light passengers, AKA - kids). I've owned many Accords and Civics and I would compare it with them - Hyundai has really improved their reliability in the last 15 years. I expect this car to reach into the 300K range like the Hondas I've owned.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Comfortable for long commutes, good gas mileage, extra bells and whistles for a car this affordable, great power, large trunk.

Cons: Trunk release only releases latch (doesn't physically open the trunk)

Better Than Nice — Car has been a value. Reliable, quality transportation. Rate it up with the higher priced luxury cars. Good looks for an 8 year old car even by today's standards. Not overly costly to maintain. Repairs can be accomplished by independent garages at a reasonable cost. Decent gas mileage for a six cylinder.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Comfortable, versatile, good handling  economic vehicle

Cons: No real negatives, it has preformed.

Best Car We've Owned — First off, I can't believe we've had our car for 8 years now and it still has the original battery in it and it starts up everyday. it don't matter if it's -20 to 90 degrees out the car always starts. Thanks Hyundai for making such a great car.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Handling, ride comfort, low maintenance cost.

Cons: Brakes

The Comfortable Car — I had a awesome experience with this car, I used it for daily commuting for 4 years with an occasional road trip. It is by far the best family car I have owned. I have it regularly serviced at our local Hyundai dealer and I have experienced only one tail light issue . Otherwise...zero problems. It is a joy to drive on the highway or twisty back roads. I am on my second set of tires and brakes. This week I will replace the original battery. We fully intend to keep this car forever, God willing.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Smooth Ride in all condition weather

Cons: N/a

A Smooth Riding Family Car — We love driving it, and it provides a very effortlessly smooth ride. It gives me great peace of mind with the 6 airbags that surround our family at all times. It also has a great stability control mechanism, that compensates for unforeseen issues encountered on the road, such as speed around a turn or slick road conditions.

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: It has a spacious interior and a huge trunk.  

Cons: Fuel efficiency is not as great as other smaller sedans, but we have always needed the extra space and added safety features, which makes up for the difference.
