Should I sell or keep my 2011 Hyundai sonata

Asked by Oct 05, 2016 at 12:37 PM about the 2011 Hyundai Sonata GLS

Question type: Shopping & Pricing

Hi, i have a 2011 Hyundai sonata. It has 78k on it.
On great condition.  I have had starter replaced and
a tune up done. I only owe 3k on it. My issue is that
I feel like it is not a long term dependable car. Ithe
doesn't feel solid and safe. I'm thinking of moving
soon. So I don't know if I should just pay off and
keep for a few years to save some money. Or
should I sell in private sale for 8k and get
something more dependable. The car has also had
many recalls.  One of which is metal shavings in
engine. I have yet to have that checked. Thanks k
you

recalls are fixed for free. Things go wrong with any car, just the way it is. At least you know what you have, if buying another for the same price you might spend more. No way of telling. Sounds like you dislike the car, so moving on might be a good idea too. The decision is ultimately yours. If you have a low int. rate, no need to pay it off.

Sonata's are great, dependable vehicles, last a long time and very stylish, much nicer than the new style. Get your engine checked at a local Hyundai dealer...takes about an hour and you will be furnished paperwork and updated warranty information.
