I had a Hyundai Senada, 2006, and I love that car. The 2008 probably is very similar.

We were very happy with this purchase. The inside of the car looked almost new. The engine compartment needed a good cleaning and after a oil and filter change, along with the air filter the engine was fine. The only other thing we had to do was replace the brake pads all around. The car runs very good and my brother-in-law is extremely happy to receive this car as a replacement for his old car.

Great Car! — This car looks and drives like a higher end sedan. Very smooth and quiet at highway speeds. Would be great for any driver. Maintainenance is minimal. Runs great every time and provides a good balance between comfort, style, luxury and sportiness!

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Fun to drive, fuel economy, spacious

Cons: none

Good Price Very Reliable! — Overall Hyundai has came a long way. They are priced well and last with very little to go wrong with them. As long as you rotate tires every oil change and keep up on regular maintenance they will last forever. But I guess that's true with any vehicle. I love my sonata! So much I want a new 2013 or 14. I would recommend hyudai to anyone!

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Best car all  around!

Cons: V6 isn't the best gas mileage 24 city 28 highway.

Very Clean, — The car is a good riding, very good looking, reliable car. These cars are going 250,000 miles with no problem. The car gets 35 mpg highway and 30 city. If you keep the tires at 42 lbs. you can get 75000 miles easily on this car. It is very easy on tires. The car is easy to maintain and easy to work on. Most of the miles are highway miles, I work 35 miles from my home and go back and forth on I-75 every day.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Very reliable, easy to maintain, no timing belt has (chain), steady firm ride, quiet performance, easy to see controls.  Very good in snow and ice.

Cons: The center console rear brake light (the high one) is a little difficult to change.  Takes about 15 minutes.

Reliable Hyundai Sonata — Car was very reliable, handled well in all weather conditions. Has a slick look and is easy to maintain. Never had a problem with parts falling off or breaking down just an overall good quality car. Very fun to drive through the urban roads and also nice and quiet on the highway.

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: The reliability.

Cons: Fuel Economy could be a little better.

Very Reliabel Nondescript Four Door — As stated the size and fuel economy. Very comfortable on the highway and gets above 30 mpg. The manual transmission is not suited for the clutch and size of the car. Purchase price was a steal. Has been 100% reliable.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Size and fuel economy

Cons: clutch longevity
