"This is my second Sonata...I have owned each for 5 years. I have been back to the dealer twice in the 10 years. Once for a defective clock and once for a noisy tail pipe."

"I bought this car new in 2009 and my wife and I have driven it 166K miles. I have had no problems with it. I performed normal service and changed engine oil every 3K miles. I will buy another Hyundai Sonata."

This car has performed very well.

"My previous car was a Hyundai Elantra, that I traded in for the 2007 Sonata. I am now closing into retirement mode and will be trading in the 2007 for what may be my last new car. It will be a Hyundai!"

"My '08 Sonata had 13,000 on it when I bought it. It has 72,000 on it's 4 cylinder and consistently gets 30 MPG + on a road trip. I really like the car but have two comments. The visor on the passenger side flopped down and was replaced at significant cost. It has flopped down again and the only solution they give me is to velcro it up. This is UNSAT. Likewise my third stoplight bulb burned out and it took $95 to change it as it is so hard to access.These seem like minor things to some,but they are enough to keep me from recommending that model year at least,and Hyundai in general."
