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.

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.
