Pros: "Economical to drive and own"

Cons: "Poor sound system & body insulation"

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

"Purchased w/35k miles, five years ago. Been reliable, good on gas mileage, affordable to own but has some flaws in quality. Cheap sound system due to poor circuitry design and quality. Poor body insulation resulting in excessive road noise. Passenger seat sets very low making for poor vision and comfort but do like the fully adjustable driver's seat. With routine maintenance and upkeep, is affordable and reliable vehicle with nice features (power seat, sunroof, decent sound quality from stereo), solid suspension and handling. Plenty of passing power when needed. Like the shiftronic auto/manual transmission system. Would classify as a good value for those wanting average quality without spending a lot but who exercise good care & maintenance practices."

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

"This car is very clean, no one has ever eaten or smoked in it, no kids have been in it, no animals (except my kitty but she is in her carrier every time she has ridden in it). My brother told me the other day it smells like a NEW car still. I change the oil every 6 months, it only has 10,768 miles on it as of today (6/8/16). It has a wonderful sound system that I never use and I don't drive it much except to the store once a month and may to go get a sandwich. It is parked in a secure, gated community, has a GPS tracking system on it, and an alarm system."

"Absolutely most reliable vehicle I've ever owned. Uses no oil, has only had minor repairs, has never broken down on road. Has never failed to start, never been towed. Bought it new, would definitely buy another Hyundai product. Had a friend that got over 400K miles out of his with the original spark plugs."

"Bought this car with 64k miles on it. No problems found! Well designed. Good overall quality. Almost 250 HP make this car very fast and strong. 24 mpg - is my average which is not bad considering my driving style "be first". Great audio system of course for these money. No lights on the dash such as "Check Engine" etc."

Pros: "V6 power - fantastic engine - Very reliable!"

Cons: "Some DIY maintenance is challenging, firm ride"

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

"I purchased new in August of 2007 and have enjoyed 126,000 trouble free miles. The V6 under the hood was a big surprise. 234 Horsepower, this car will simply GO! I cruise on the highway at 70 - 80 mph and it is extremely smooth and comfortable. I have been in much more expensive cars that do not have the quality or power. Great value in this vehicle - only thing I've done is front brake pads, oil changes every 5-6k. replaced plugs at 100k. I will say the 2 minor knocks are the ride is pretty firm due to the low profile tires and a more sport oriented suspension and for those that like to do their own maintenance, it is not laid very well, spark plug change is a bear. I think most car makers do this now though to favor their dealerships. Anyone looking for a solid, reliable, safe, and powerful car should seek a used V6 Sonata. You will not be disappointed"
