Getting firsthand information from an actual car owner is one sure way to get an idea of car performance once it leaves the lot. Autobytel features real consumer reviews that give the unbiased experience of a car.
Pros: Ride and handling
Cons: Dished area at bottom of windshield and back window that collects ice and snow.I purchased this as a second vehicle and was surprised at the comfortable ride and the performance. As a four cylinder it takes the mountains of south central Pennsylvania very well. Also pleased with local highway gas mileage of 26-27 MPG.
Very good car
Pros: comfort and good mileage
Cons: nothingGreat car
Greatest Family Sedan
Pros: Value and warranty
Cons: Trunk lid not big enoughDrove Camry 8 miles, Altima 5, Honda 6, Impala 6-this one 10. Cabin Space beats all. Ride beats all but Camry and differnce is not worth the extra 4.5 grand. All other reviews downplay gittyup but this vehicle is good enough. Who REALLY wants to race at 3 bucks a gallon. This car will last a long time and be a quality car for years. If you buy Honda you pay big bucks for the name, Altima recommends premium fuel and needs it, Impala doesn't seem to be build well in the interior and I don't know why Camry is so pricey and I wasn't convinced about the brake issue. Sonata is in the playoffs and the others are going to have to start taking notice.
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 corneringCan'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.
Best Vehicle Ever
Pros: Gas Mileage
Cons: NoneThe Hyundai Sonata is a very sporty mid sized car that is fun to drive ,gets good gas mileage ,comfortable to ride in and the price is right for the amount of car you get.
Pros: xm radio (standard), cloth seats are very soft and comfortable
Cons: lack of accelerartion
Advice: Give it a test drive, you'll fall in love with the ride.The Sonata offers a smooth and quite ride especially for a 4 cylinder. The interior is very comfortable and roomy,(luxurious). I found the steering wheel a liitle stiff but I actually like that. If you looking for speed this is not the car you want to own. Fuel economy is o.k. I commute so that's important. For being a standard model, I have to say the options that come with it are far and away better than you an get with any car in this class. The Sonata handles quite well in rain and snow. I would definetly recommend this car for anyone who is looking for a luxury ride at a bottom price.
