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.

Perfect Vehicle For Our Needs And Great Value To Boot — Build Quality: No promblems whatsoever. car has only had oil changes and travelled 32,000 kllometres. Car Comparisons: Toyota Corolla and Honda Civic, ut the Sonata had more interior room and was better eqipped for the money. Performance: Very responsive. Car has 175 horsepower and brakes are very reponsive as AbS is standard. More Abo

Good Quality Car Overall :-) — I love this car. Great on gas. I would recomend using 89 octane for one reason, the 87 octane has ethanol which lowers the gas mileage. The trunk is spacious. Plenty of room on the inside for 4 people. Tight steering. Tight handling.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Everything

Cons: Step on gas it hesitates a little.

Nice Solid Car — Its a nice car, black, tinted windows, drives real smoothly, overall a solid car. Monthly payments are pretty expensive for it. Real good on gas. About 30 MPG. Like the slap-stick transmission feature, gives the car a little more umph. I like it.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: new car, drives smoothly, tinted windows, soon to get new tires and rims, then possibly blacking out taillights

Cons: doesn't have very good pickup, couple dents in it

Very Positive Impression Of The Sonata! — We rented a Sonata for vacation and drove it almost 3,000 miles. This was our first experience with a Hyundai and we were very pleased. It was solid, quiet and the gas mileage we got on the V6 was a great surprise. The trunk was huge and we had plenty of room for those vacation purchases. Handling was a bit jittery on rough roads but never a problem. Performance was overall good but throttle tip-in was a bit abrupt. Build quality was excellent with tight seams and no squeaks or rattles. The audio system was one of the better ones we've heard in a car in this price range and we also enjoyed the XM radio (thanks, Budget!). This car goes to the top of the list when we get ready to buy!

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: No issues or problems

Cons: Cruise control response was iffy at times, hard to adjust witht he + and - buttons.

Nice Car — the gas mileage is only about 19 miles per gallon. That's just not enough. Also, the Hankook tires that come with the car and cheap quality and I had a flat in under three weeks of driving. Aside from that, it's a great comfortbale car.

Primary Use: Family transportation

A Face Lifted Car That Is Significantly Better Than The Non Faced Model...a Very Rare Thing... —

Normally I don't find face-lifted cars worth reviewing over because often almost nothing changes. In many cases the only changes are exterior only with no interior changes at all. The 2009 Sonata is an extremely rare case where there is significant changes over the previous year. Not much of the car's driving abilities have changed although it seemed more refined and somehow feels a bit better when it comes to turns. The interior on the other hand got a massive change. The plastics have been designed so well they almost lose the image that they are plastic, rather they look like they're worth a bit more. This imagery is extremely good and something I didn't expect Hyundai to pull off. The stereo is superior to the previous awful unit. This car truly looks fantastic inside and the build quality from Hyundai has never been better. Like the 2008 model, no reliability issues and its pretty efficient. I like the 2009 Sonata a lot, this is definitely Hyundai's best car I've driven. A lot of focus was placed in the interior, since the car drives pretty well its an excellent car overall. I never thought I'd have such positive thoughts about a Hyundai car.

Pros: Significantly improved interior, overall a very good car

Cons: Unoriginal styling...yeah thats all I can think of

Great Car! — Nice, quiet, comfortable ride. Upscale interior. Great sound system. Good performance with 4 cyl. engine and great gas mileage! Build quality as good as Camery, Accord, Altima or Malibu, plus more features and costs thousands less. Has a warranty the others won't even attempt to compete with! Great Car!

Pros: Quiet, upscale, high quality interior, loaded with features, long waranty, good gas mileage.

Cons: None so far.

Perfect — everyting - for a commuter driving 80+km one way to work it is perfect. Quiet, great power, amazing fuel economy, and an awesome stereo - everything I need. Love the iPod hook-up and XM radio, in fact it plays music right from a usb stick. The information even appears on the screen and it can be controlled by the steering wheel controls.

Pros: Quiet, great power, amazing fuel economy, and an awesome stereo

Cons: I didn't get it sooner

Overall Hyundai makes cars that are going to last well over 250,000 miles as long as the maintenance is kept up. Very dependable and worth the money. I am looking for another Hyundai to buy now! Read More
