    2008 Hyundai Sonata

    Why buy anything else?

    Pros: Its quiet spaciousness.

    Cons: Those damn seat-belt reminders!

    A cuv may be more practical. A sport car is more exciting. But no sedan equals this car when it comes to practical value. I always check out new cars -- even luxury cars. Not because I have a desire to own one but to keep up with new developments in the automotive world. For instance, I check such as the design, finish and fit on the door insides. I haven't found any that equals that of a Sonata Limited. I still get compliments on my two-year old car. Its size, its style (cool, sedate, not flashy), the silence of the engine, even the quality of the paint. It is spacious and comfortable. All things considered, why drive something else?.

    2008 Hyundai Sonata

    Better Value than my last 2 BMW's

    Pros: Dash ligths

    Cons: Front wheel drive, should have gotten AWD

    This vehicle is well thought out and put together very well. After two years , it looks and feels like the day I purchased it. Mine is the SE model which comes with a 243 hp V6, Satelite Radio, Auto dimming rear view mirror with compas. Not one rattle, even after I hit a huge pot hole and destroyed 2 rims. No Damage to the vehicle. Not one problem after 2 years. Cannot sya the same for my last 2 BMWs, which cost much more!

    2008 Hyundai Sonata - GLS V6 (A5)

    Pros: Style/handling

    Cons: Need more leg support front seats

    Advice: Get it you will be glad you did

    Excellent Car!! We bought it used with 18k miles. Traded a Chevy Tahoe, will never own GM again. This car handles great, good gas milage 28 on hwy and 21 city. Quite, with little noise on rough road. Lots of extras for the money, we did own a Honda accord at one time nothing bad to say there good reliability as expected wanted another Honda but too much money. This Sonata is great and from other reviews should be very reliable. We have 5 yr and 60k warranty no extra cost. Too many good things to say about the Sonata!

    2008 Hyundai Sonata - GLS (M5)

    Pros: comfort and quality

    Cons: No bluetooth

    Advice: Just compare to Camry/accord. Thousands cheaper with a 5 yr warrantee.

    2009 Sonata not 2008. I traded 2007 G6 for this car and very happy i did. The look of the new 2009 is great. The interior is much improved as well as the color (grey),now has a much richer look and feel. The car drives so smooth with the new engine and 5 speed transmition. Also gas milage is amazing so far 26.5 average 50/50 city highway. It has so many standard features the only think i miss is bluetooth. Buy this car you will not regret it.

    2008 Hyundai Sonata - GLS (M5)

    Pros: All of it

    Cons: Nothing

    Advice: Buy it. You'll get your money's worth.

    Best car I've ever owned! Its the first import I've purchased. I've had it 6 months and not one complaint. Test drove other similiar size cars. They were more expensive and overrated. The Sonata is such a great car for so little money. You get so much for what you spend.I'd recommend it to all my friends.

    2008 Hyundai Sonata - Limited (A4)

    Pros: Auto Lights and Auto Night view rear mirror

    Cons: Nothing

    Advice: Go get it

    great car at great price. good features. no noise 100 % better than Honda/Camry which are overpriced. Considered to buy Honda Accord but it was too pricey. Best Bet, I'm enjoying my car. Every one suggested me to by Honda/Camry but finally I bought Hyundai Sonata. I'm happy I made the right decision
