    2005 Hyundai Sonata

    The Best Vehicle Ever!!!!

    Pros: The comfort of the seat as well as the way it drives.

    Cons: There isn't one thing I can think of.

    I think its a well kept secret! They were off to a bad start. Bout the 2005, is awesome! It is comfortable on a long distance trip. I always get great comments about its appearance and the way it handles the road with cruise control makes riding a pleasure. I'm blessed!

    2005 Hyundai Sonata - GL (M5)

    Pros: Reliability

    Cons: None

    Advice: Definitely check it out if you are considering Camry or Accord.

    I had reservations when I bought my 2003 Sonata 3 years ago. I also considered Camry, Accord, and Altima before purchasing Sonata. After 30,000 miles, I can confiedntly say that I sure got my money's worth. It has a lot more features than any of the other cars I considered for a couple of thounsand dollars less. Performance has been excellent. I have not had a single problem with the car yet. I like the exterior style of the car as well. In fact, I think the 2003 model is more stylish than the newer models.

    2005 Hyundai Sonata - LX (A4)

    Pros: Total luxury

    Cons: Seat belts a little difficult to reach

    Advice: Try it and you'll buy it!!

    I have owned several makes of 'big' cars - Buick, Cadillac, Oldsmobile 98's and Toronados. I consider my Hyundai LX one of the finest cars I have ever owned. It took a bit for me to get used to a slightly smaller car but once doing so fell in love with the appearance,appointments and comfort. My car presently (3-16-06) shows 28,000 on the odometer.

    2005 Hyundai Sonata - LX (A4)

    Pros: Performance

    Cons: ????? I don't know? Maybe the red lights in the door.

    Advice: Buy it.

    I can't believe it's a Hyundia. I've only had mine for about a week and I love this car. To complain about something, well I can't. Yes, I can find things I would say could be better. That's true with any car and it's just me being picky.

    2005 Hyundai Sonata - GLS (A4)

    Pros: Very well manufactured...Quite sporty and good mileage combination...Just a good combo

    Cons: Slightly small on room up front...but everything else makes up for it!

    Advice: Enjoy! I've not checked mixed drivinf mileage in a while but have gotten 30mpg on highway !

    Very well designed and constructed vehicle. Doors, hood and trunk all close easily and with a solid sound, unlike most cars. Somewhat small upfront (i'm 6' tall) but the overall car offsets this. Not during an actual 'test drive' but have had to put it through it's paces when almost gettibg run off the road by another driver..it performed GREAT. It has nice acceleration when needed but when driving conservatively, especially highway it did well in the mpg department. I have had it about a year and really do not have a bad thing to say about it. By the way it was rated very favorably by consumer reports, pretty much across the board including the government safety tests.

    2005 Hyundai Sonata - GLS w/Special Value (A4)

    Pros: Body Style

    Cons: Non-adjustable cup holder with inconvenient access for driver.

    Advice: At this price, equip it the way you want it. Don't skimp.

    6 Cylinder model has good pick up. I don't need to stand on the gas pedal to get into highway traffic as you would with the 4-cyl. model. Comfortable seating. Gas mileage in city is as listed on window sticker: 19 MPG. Haven't been on highway yet. It is one week old. Follow the recommended 1,200-mile break in and stay under 50 MPH. Passengers claim comfortable rear seating. HomeLink is great feature to open garage door. Car handle very well and looks great. The GLS Special Value really is! The dealer (Hyundai of New Port Richey) was extremely friendly, patient and accomodating, including post-sale telephone follow-up.
