"This car has had regular use, including some long road trips in summer. It is by far the most reliable car I have ever owned, and I have owned some other reliable makes. Comfort is just right for me (I am average height and weight). Instruments very readable, especially at night. Mileage on road continues to be excellent, often exceeding advertised claims. I am tempted to keep it until I or it quits, but after 10 years, I think it is time to trade."

255k miles

"The car is a truly great in proportions / functionality. Wide doors, high roof line, clear visibility, idiot proof controls/buttons, huge trunk, couch sized back seat, and minimal 'cute gee whiz stuff' that dates itself/breaks. The V6 still surprises me, ample power, great driveability at wide speed range / passenger loads. I would re-buy the vehicle again today without question. It gets so many things right. In the vehicles life, I've driven over 5000 miles on gravel roads at 30+ miles an hour and it's held together quite well. 5.5k-6k mile change intervals on the oil. Most annoying thing - changing the 3rd brake light bulb. Pokey items - driver visor tension was floppy [replaced] and the flip down cup holder gripper wasn't sturdy enough [removed it]."

Cons: "Simple insterior Cosmetic Issues"

"I am 36 and I had VW Jetta,Toyota Camry, Honda Civic and This one 2006 Hyundai Sonata GL. All of them were great and this one is also way beyond what people thinks. I bought it When it had 85,000 miles on it Sep 2012 from its first owner, I still have it and as a second owner,and planning not to sell it since it is Perfectly reliable. It does not have the timing belt. So you don't have to change anything. Milage/Gallon is pretty good for a car 2.4 engine car. It is giving me always more that 25 miles per gallon. If I have to be precise i can say 28/32 for sure. Low maintenance. There a few cons by the way. Like interior cosmetic issues like windows button. It is floppy but it works. I can definitely keep driving it and I will keep it. There is a check engine light issue you need to know it is coming from emission. I have replace that piece twice like around $200 each time but for a mileage that i have taken so far like 100,000 in 3 years, It is OK. No other expenses. And please consider this car. I can say Instead of paying more to Honda i would get Hyundai since you can get the same type of a car with a better price. Since nobody knows it. It is not popular like the other two brand. But i can definitely say I LOVED IT SO MUCH."

"Love this car....6 cylinder... I have a 2011 4 cylinder, and I like this one better. Smooth drive. Just got new tires and complete tuneup. Thinking of selling it to get a new Sonata, but I own it...little reluctant. I know that my 2003 ran until it had 245,000 miles. Very reliable car..I take good care of it with regular maintenance."
