"Bought this car used, 20k miles, in 2005. It now has 140k miles and runs like new. I threw on some 18" zr rated tires and wheels at about 25k miles and it drives like a dream. I naturally drive aggressive/hard and this car has held up very well. Several road trips to Vegas and San Diego, never had an issue. I would have no problem driving this to New York tomorrow. I have gone over, on accident, on oil changes by 5k+ miles before and still no issues. Ride is smooth, shifting is smooth, acceleration is good (it does lag a little on the throttle response). Steering is good but not terrific, little over steer at 60+mph. All around a great car. Regular service, replace tires, brakes, battery, fluids. AC is extremely cold and I have never had it serviced, ever! Nothing else has needed to be changed in the 120k miles that I have owned it! Inspection at the dealership says it's in tiptop shape. I will own for another 10k and buy a 2011 Sonata, simply because owning this one has been so wonderful. We are talking extreme reliability. For the money, I would find it hard to believe there is a better deal than this car."
"I bought this car with 5,000 miles on it and now it has over 103,000. Have only done routine maintenance to it. Oil changes, brakes, tires, timing belt, and water pump changed. The car has been very reliable and would not hesitate to buy another Hyundai product!!"
