"Have had compliments on car from day #1. Many felt it to be a small Jaguar or Lexus. Has stood the test of time well.Have 160,000 plus miles on it. Biggest expense on car has been cost of brake replacements. Dealer has been great. Never felt like a "cheap" car. V-6 engine quiet and smooth Highly recommended.Would buy it again if possible. Great family car. It's replacement, a 2011 Kia Optima is another gem. Hyundai & KIA are sisters under the sheetmetal(on newer vehicles). Woudn't hesitate to buy one! Both were purchased new."

"Bought 2005 Sonata new in 2005, with 8 miles on it. It has been garaged since 2005 w/ cover and maintenance done regularly. I have 60,000 miles on it and no problems with anything. I do not hot rod...heavy on take off and heavy braking, not good for any car. I have leather seats and heated too and everything works great. I would like to trade it in for an SUV Hyuandai, but I would not get anything for it. Great paint and body."

Pros: "Very reliable"

Cons: "Exterior paint peels"

Likely to recommend this car? (1-10): 10

"I purchased this car new eleven years ago, and have never had any major repairs done. Granted, it is very low mileage, and I maintain it religiously (fluid changes, brakes), but it has been driven on a regular basis by my son. He, on the other hand, has had three new cars since I purchased the Hyundai! I find it to be very reliable, and I honestly think that it could last another ten years! My only complaint is the exterior paint. It has deteriorated terribly and I now have to get it painted. This may be due to the fact that it is not garaged, however. Overall, it is a great car. I wonder if the newer models were built this well!"
