    2002 Hyundai Sonata - LX (M5)

    Pros: looks

    Cons: moonroof

    Advice: ABS does improve handling, if your short choose option pkg 6

    moon roof takes up to much headroom, option package 6 required to get ABS but it forces the moonroof on you.

    2002 Hyundai Elantra - (M5) Sedan

    Pros: 140 hp

    Cons: stereo is less than i wanted. I'll upgrade

    Advice: List the things you want from a car before you buy

    I have 1200 miles on my Elantre and it definatley has some get up and go when needed. Rap the accelerator and it takes off, in town or at expressway speeds. Just right for the daily comute. I chose it over the competetion for this and the little bit of extra leg room it has. The transmission seems to get confused when the car is cold at low speeds, and the am/fm cassette sound system is marginal. The trunk is one the mafia would be proud of. Lots of room. A good choice for the price. And what a warranty.

    2002 Hyundai Elantra - (M5) Sedan

    Pros: The many convenience and safety features of the car.

    Cons: The poor quality of the fit for interior trim and components has been an onging problem.

    Advice: Test drive and exam the vehicle you intend to buy. Do not accept a substitute.

    The 2.0 liter engine delivers plenty of power, but the transmission seems unable to find the right gear at speeds lower than highway cruising.

    2002 Hyundai Sonata - GLS (M5)

    Pros: the ability to swith between automatic and manual

    Cons: the bucket seats are somewhat uncomfortable

    Advice: test drive and compare the prices. YOU'LL BE SOLD!

    this car really took my breath away when i first seen it. i never would have imagined myself ever buying a hyundai. But all of that changed when i test drove it. it had the ability to pick up speed and keep up. the interior is very roomy and the exterior is very classy like the jag. and the price....is well within anyone's budget. only problem is the bucket seats are not that comfortable.

    2002 Hyundai Sonata - LX (M5)

    Pros: moonroof,sound system

    Cons: cruise control

    Advice: the best car you'll get for your money

    I was impressed with how much car you could get for the money. This car comes with gas struts on the hood and trunk, you will not crush things in the trunk when closing, like in other cars. I decided on the LS model since it had all the extras for just $800 more than the GLS, and it was the only way to get the power seat. For that $800 you get power seat,moon roof and the leather seats. It also has the best warranty around, speciallly since I keep my cars for a long time. The only thing I really dislike is the placement of the cruise control 'on' swith, it must have been designed by dumb and dumber. I also drove the 2002 Camry which had the smoother 6 cyl.engine I have ever come across, but by the time you added all the other 'extras' its price was up in the 20s. You could also see that it was a car you could get 'bore' with pretty soon. There was nothing boring about the Sonata LS.

    2002 Hyundai Sonata - LX (M5)

    Pros: lumbar - climate control - keyless entry -

    Cons: cup holders - poorly placed cruise control switch

    Advice: compare features & price with other midsize

    ON THE PLUS SIDE - Excellent adjustments on driver's seat, interior & exterior styling are improved, dealer financing was at an excellent rate, good standard audio system, ergonomics are very good for most items, keyless door & trunk opener are standard, heated power mirrors are standard, 60/40 split fold down back seat is very useful, standard Michelin tires , sport/auto trans works well, most comparable ares $3000 - $6,000 more. ON THE MINUS SIDE - Cruise control switch is inaccessible, front cup holders hard to access, ABS should be standard on top models, vanity mirror lights don't work unless power is on, no dome light for rear seats, more powerful V6 desirable, larger moon roof possible, leather seats are comfortable but leather is not top quality.
