Pros: "Like the sporty look"

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

"I first drove a Hyundai Sonata in 2006 when I rented one; that is when I first liked it, and later on in life, I wanted one. This has nice power for the highway or whenever you would need to use it, the interior is not cheesy, and the whole look of the car makes you think it is more than what it is in a good way. No complaints here, a great buy!"

Looks sporty but it's not anywhere near sporty.

Pros: "Great steering"

Cons: "Horrible suspension"

Likely to recommend this car? (1-10): 5

"The green lightings are annoying doing night driving. The 235 horsepower seems to be to much for the front wheel drive under hard acceleration. Front seats are to firm for long rides. The suspenion is horrible. Any crack in the road you hit you will feel it. Smooth acceleration when not pushed hard. Great highway ride very zippy. Can't cut corners even with the really good $260 tires I have on the 17 inch rims. Needs a eco system because it's not that good on gas in the city. The engine note is quite after it heats up in the winters of New Jersey. Wish it came in black leather when I brought the 2006 Sonata in early 2005."
