    Love My Little Car — Really a nice little car. Does great on gas, has options I love (XM, Sunroof) and is very affordable. Any issues we have had have been covered by their awesome warranty. My parents have the new body style, and while it's nice. I like driving my car better.

    Pros: Price, MPG, Comfort, Options

    Cons: none really

    This Car Has Great Features For The Price - Awesome Family Car With Navigation For Those Day Trips. — Met all our expectations of style, features and affordability. Warranty is excellent as is fit and finish. Blue paint seems prone to small road debris chips but overall a solid, comfortable car. Infinity radio provides excellent sound and voice activation makes it easy to control hands free.

    Primary Use: Family transportation

    Pros: Lots of options for the money!  Still a good looking style!

    Cons: Factory tires not long lasting

    Very Good, Dependable Car. — Adequate entertainment in the cabin, comes standard with usb, aux, mp3 player, AM/FM stereo. Surprisingly great acceleration and best feature is the quiet engine and the quiet ride. Smooth transmission and good gas milage. Best Hyundai I have had.

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: Decent amount of power, well equipped cabin.

    Cons: Quite bulky.

    Pretty Good For The Price. — Power is great, paint and finish is superb ( keep in garage), steering is so-so, voice activated nav and radio is good, wish we had a passenger power seat, gets about 31 mpg if steady run at 65 mph on hwy. only extra we don't have is BluConnect. Dealer wanted $400!, I find it fun to drive. P.s. Still have original f&r brakes at 52000 miles!!! Just changed tires at 49000 mi.

    Primary Use: Family transportation

    Pros: I got a good one!

    Cons: Steering is not the best.

    Great Car — Everything about this kind of car is great but unfortunately I am leaving the country and I have to sell the car. Maintenance did not cost me a lot because I did not have any problems with this cars. During the last 3 years, this car needed nothing except oil change, new tires and brakes and periodic maintenance service.

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: It is a comfortable car with a fair gas mileage and maintenance costs.

    Cons: It is not the right car for big family >5 people

    Eric In Minnesota — Other than tire and battery replacement there have been no problems in 70,000 miles. This is my third Hyundai. All have been great cars! My wife drives an 08 Sonata Limited and will never go back to driving a Nissan.

    Primary Use: Family transportation

    Pros: Smooth v6; leg room, xm sound system; fit and finish; trunk room; brakes [70,000 miles and still good]; fuel economy [35mpg at 55mph]; styling; ride comfort; value for the dollar.

    Cons: Blue lighting for computer gauge. Hard to read.

    Looks And Drives Like A High Performance Car At A Reasonable Price. — It performs well in winter weather conditions. The breaking system keeps the car very stable in unstable weather. Accelerates nicely into required conditions. The body of the car is stable and sturdy. It is a silver-blue color with gray interior. It looks like a care worth much more. Maintenance is reasonable. It is a joy to drive knowing I am in a great performing, stylish, safe car.

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: Handling, stylish, good gas mileage.

    Cons: I wish the car seat would adjust beyond a forward/back position.

    You Cannot Buy A Better Car For Your Money. I Am Sold On The Sonata 100%. — I love the way the Sonata looks. It's got very sporty lines that make it look sleeker while it has an incredibly roomy interior. The trunk space is huge and the seats fold down. The instrument panel is very intuitive and driver-focused. The car feels solid when you drive it and the ESC works amazingly on ice. Solid build quality and the performance is great. The only downside is the shifting is a little jumpy when accelerating. Handling is very precise and responsive.

    Primary Use: Family transportation

    Pros: Roomy. Solid construction. Sporty body-style. Nice handling.  Good on ice.

    Cons: Jumpy shifting.

    A Black Exterior, Gray Interior Sedan. — I like how the Sonata handles. The Sonata is automatic transmittion. So far the car has not needed repairs. I would've preferred a different collor. The Sonata has a good gas milage. The car is fun to drive because it's not jumpy when you push the gas petal.

    Pros: The Hyundai Sonata is a V6 engine with dual exaust.

    Cons: If you start the car and your seat belt isn't on it makes the loudest noise til you put your seat belt on. It will repeat the same noise if you don't put your seat belt.
