"I bought this in 2006 and had it for ten years. I just recently sold it. I did my best to take care of this vehicle and it took care of me. It always got compliments everywhere I went and it was a beautiful car inside and out."

I live in buffalo. We have snow, and lots of mud.

"I would tell anyone I love my car. I know. I know it is a 2002 Sonata. But I have put 100,000 miles on my car in my 6 years owning it and would not trade a single one. Did you notice the mileage is 240,000? Still running like a champ. I have spent $2,000 on repairs in 6 years, and that would be the maximum. This car has been a miracle to me. Being my first car, and incredible, I cannot let go. Hopefully she'll get me to 2017! Or who knows! maybe 300,000 miles. Everyone is shocked when I get oil changes. I just smile. I am saving up to get a new car, and will not be surprised if I end up purchasing a new Sonata. P.S. Always go for the sunroof. ;)"

"I will NEVER buy another Hyundai again. There was a recall on under body rust which the dealer preformed. My car is running good still.. no problem. The rust has come back to the whole under body and is moving up above the rear wheels. My mechanic said it is a safety issue and I might be able to make it through winter. I called Hyundai they told me to take it to a dealer. Three different dealers service department were just out right rude to me. They won't be making any money if they looked at my car. The fourth was very helpful. He told me that Hyundai fixed it once and would not do anything to benefit my problem. I never had a problem with rust with the 3 Toyota's that I have in the past. Cheap metal is why they can afford lower prices. Don't fall for it."

Pros: "More car for the money."

Cons: "It ain't no Bentley"

Likely to recommend this car? (1-10): 8

"On the Used car market, it is like buying a Camry or Honda for less than half the price, and getting all the size, all the power, probably all the reliability, almost all the confort and not quite the pizazz. To look at another way, with 4 grand to spend on a Sonata, you can find a nice, clean, pretty, low milage car that needs nothing. The 4,000 Camrey is over 15 years old, has 150k to 200k miles, and "needs TLK." "TLK" means more than Tender Loving Care. It means lots of money."
