"In all the years we have owned Sonatas, we have never had a whiff of trouble with any major component. It has been the most reliable car we have ever owned. But, little nuisance items break. The cigarette lighter never worked for more than an hour, the sun shade over the driver side flops down when least expected. Like I said, nuisance items. Some of the controls are odd. I never get the a/c adjust right the first time because I misread the temp. control. It does not handle well in ice or snow, but then I am comparing it to a Saab and a Cadillac, which handle extreely well. Bottom line: I would buy this car again in a heartbeat."

"This auto will be very reliable, trouble free, good acceleration and traction, the auto is clean, fun to drive, I purchased it new and has low mileage, 51000, all systems work, paint is very good inside and outside. The only maintenance that has ben performed is the std oil changes, tires, wipers, filters etc. It does not need high upkeep."

"Get into any comparable car and then get into my Sonata and you will not believe how much better the ride is in this car. Paint and finish: Looks like new as of 8/12/2014. VERY bright and shinny. I have never seen a paint job hold up like this one is doing in my life. Performance: Can't believe the power and quietness of this little 4 cyl engine! Gas mileage: Provable: 24 city,31 hwy. I have charted every drop if gas put into this car for almost 5 years. Of course, at age 75 I drive it very safely and carefully..and I service it the same way. Tire wear (indicates overall frame and alignment)is excellent. Almost 5 years and still over 75% tread remaining with no sign of uneven wear. Value: It appears that this Sonata is holding its value better than 95% of all cars on the road. But that is not surprising to me as more people learn of the above listed facts about this car."
