    2011 Hyundai Sonata

    2011 Sonata

    Pros: Beautiful lines of exterior and improved 4 cyl. engine.

    Cons: That I can't sleep in it.LOL

    Just had the car a week in the Limited edition; and I can say forst; great ride and great lines. A surprising low torque engine in the 4 cyl. mode. My wife has a 2010 Mazda 3 2.5 and the Sonata is more fun to drive and has a big boost at about 60 klick's ( 45 miles an hour) and just as much torque. Getting 8.4 litres/100 km, combined city and highway with the air on constantly. Full of toys and I would recommend the upgrade to the Limited edition because of the leather and the 7 speaker sound system. Great price/value.

    2010 Hyundai Sonata

    Great value, what you get for the price is fantast

    Pros: The look is sharp and clean, good gas mileage, excellent safety rating and great warranty.

    Cons: The 4 cylinder could us a little more acceleration muscle. Ther is also a little vehicle roll when cornering

    Can't beat it for what you get for your dollar, while it might not have any features to blow your socks off it does a lot of things well. Safety and warranty features are hard to beat.

    2009 Hyundai Sonata

    Good but boring

    Pros: Ride

    Cons: does not take turns well

    I like my '09 Sonata, as it rides great, gets good MPG 30.3 a long trip and has great interior I have 35,000 miles already But it lacks handling precesion, and good 0-30 time, I belive the 2010 address observations.

    2007 Hyundai Sonata

    First New Car in 22 Years.

    Pros: Miles per gallon.

    Cons: The tilt steering wheel.

    This is the first car I have bought in 22 years, and a lot has changed. Changed for the better that is. This is a very good car. I like it very much, but since I have other vehicles, I have only driven it 3000 miles in the 3 years I have had it. I really only have 2 complaints. One is the tilt steering wheel is useless to me, since it does not telescope, and blocks the speedometer if I tilt it where I would like it to be. My second complaint is the center driver's arm rest, as it is too far back to rest your arm and still keep your hand on the steering wheel.

    2009 Hyundai Sonata

    Transmission sours overall opinion

    Pros: engine - smooth and gets great gas mileage with performance

    Cons: Transmission issues

    3.3L engine with auto trans-will hesitate and then slam into gear 2nd and 3rd and will also slam into these gears when decelerating. Hyundai has a problem with the transmission and the dealers nit pick it. I just had mine in the shop and they updated the software -which should be a recall item. The care shifts better with the update but it's still a hard shift. I drove Pontiacs for years and couldn't tell when it shifted unless I watched the Tach (I got rid of two Bonnevilles this year because GM won't acknowledge they are as water tight as a sponge. Other than transmission I enjoy the car.
