    2002 Hyundai Sonata - GLS (M5)

    Pros: The comfort of its interior design (it's loaded!)

    Cons: That I didn't buy one sooner!

    Advice: Trust this skeptic, 'Driving IS believing!'

    I was in the market for a Honda Accord or a Toyota Camry but was so impressed with performance and overall comfort of the Sonata GLS V6. It features everything I'd ever look for in a car (CD, AM/FM Radio, Cassette, Power Moonroof, Power Locks/Windows, SHIFTRONIC gear shift design (like a Ferrari!), and more) for about $10,000 less than a Honda which offers the same!

    2002 Hyundai Sonata - LX (M5)

    Pros: Leather Interior/Outside Styling/Comfort/Handling

    Cons: The sound system needs improvement

    Advice: Great Vehicle, Great Value

    I had been shopping for an SUV and decided to check out the Hyundai Santa Fe, which I liked, however I noticed the 2002 Sonata LX on my dealer's lot and was very impressed. After checking out the price and driving it I was sold! The Hyundai Warranty is the best and I would recommend (and have recommended) this vehicle to anyone who is looking at the Camry, Altima or any other mid-sized vehicle. I have been stopped numerous times by people who are impressed by this vehicle.

    2002 Hyundai Sonata - LX (M5)

    Pros: THe exterior styling

    Cons: The sound of the horn needs to be altered to a big car sound

    Advice: Just drive and then you'll know

    Have owned my 2002 Sonata approx. 5 months and am utterly overwhelmed and impressed with the quality, comfort, style, and affordability of this auto. I was struck the day these were delivered to the dealership and proceeded out the door with the first one a day and a half later. There is nothing unpleasant or displeasing about this automobile. Three cheers to it's concept and development and to those involved with it's creation. The warrantee is just the icing on the cake and I have to commend Bill Bryan Hyundai of Winter Park for their professionalism and fortitude to make this ownership possible. You've got a winner with this one and the new merchandising concept is a sure thing for you continued success.

    2002 Hyundai Sonata - Base (M5)

    Pros: Probably the looks ! It's beautiful, looks like a Mercedes or Jag.

    Cons: Very few problems - in 20 degree winters the CD won't change until warmed up

    Advice: Drive it only if you're prepared to be impressed and buy it !

    I looked at the larger XG300 (2001) and was VERY impressed with it. We could have afforded it (add'l $8500) but with a son in college, we decided to look at the less expensive Sonata, base model, with optional V6 and rear disc brakes. Wow ! That's what we bought - our local dealer took off several hundred, and it cost us $16,400. Three years ago we got a new Neon for $14,400 and it is 1/2 the car (not to mention having the head gasket go). Also had head gaskets go on another new Neon, also 1999, a 1992 Dodge Spirit, a Taurus and a Buick - in 8 years. So I was very attracted to the 10 year powertrain warrantee on the Sonata, since US carmakers obviously can't build cars any more.

    2002 Hyundai Santa Fe - LX AWD

    Pros: ventilated front disc / solid rear disc brakes, ABS, traction control ,fullsize spare tire

    Cons: oddly styled front end, Poor clock placement, unlit cruise control switches

    Advice: Don't let the name or well meaning friends/family sway your opinion. Test drive it and make an informed decision. You won't be sorry

    As an ASE certified Technician I am not easily impressed but, Every day I find another reason to love the Santa Fe. It rides smooth and comfortable with the independent suspension. It is a tad underpowered, but performs very well in city driving.

    2002 Hyundai Sonata - GLS (M5)

    Pros: The standard cd player!

    Cons: Trying to figure out the windshield wipers.

    Advice: Drive other more expensive cars...then try this one. Your pocket book will thank you.

    After being in an accident with my Nissan Altima, I was sure I'd purchase another. However, after doing some homework and test driving other vehicles, the Sonata was an obvious choice. It's great looking, great handling, and very affordable!
