I own this car - My approximate mileage is 30,500overall rating 10 of 10rating details
Pros: "Comfortable, easy to drive and affordable"
Cons: "Seats are a bit stiff in the GLS model."
Likely to recommend this car? (1-10): 10
"My MPG is around 30 on average and I love the way this car handles. I have no complaints other than the fact that I have the GLS model and the seats are a bit stiff. They aren't terrible, but they are stiff. But that's the only thing I don't love about this car. Every thing else is what I expected or more. The audio is fair, not awesome, but that's not too important to me. The bluetooth works great. The steering and brakes are awesome. The engine has plenty of pep for me. The controls are all easy to use and very easy to find. Plenty of room for a 6'2" guy. The trunk has more than enough room. The backseats have plenty of room for most people that get in it. I have had no trouble with this car and if it performs well down the stretch, I will be getting another Sonata next time."

I own this car - My approximate mileage is 22,500overall rating 5 of 10rating details
Pros: "Good looking, comfortable seats"
Cons: "terrible gas milage, transmission, rough cruising"
Likely to recommend this car? (1-10): 1
"I paid just over $27,000 and have kept up with the maintenance. Transmission was completely replaced and the gas milage is the same as their 6 cyl gas model. Thought about trading it in but the best I could get was $16,800 on a $46,000 new car. That's some serious depreciation on a reputable vehicle. My first and last foreigh hybrid. Regarding the transmission, the issues that alerted me to a potential problem before the original transmission was replaced are happening again. I took it to a reputable transmission shop and was told the engine and transmission are binding and that the car is junk. Waiting for his written report."

I own this car - My approximate mileage is 60,000overall rating 8 of 10rating details
Pros: "Great value. Comfortable, stylish, nice drive"
Cons: "Feel the road, Blue Tooth erratic"
Likely to recommend this car? (1-10): 9
"I have owned this car for 3.5 years and am very happy. On an average, I drive over 300 miles every week in this car. Other than scheduled maintenance, I never had to take it to the shop. Considering I paid less than $20,000 for the new car (yes, I didn't add some of the bells and whistles), I think it has been great. The car drives very well on all types of roads and driving conditions, if you can get used to feeling the road somewhat. The Blue Tooth has been erratic on occasions, which has been a bit irritating. Its 4-cylinder with fuel injection works superb, though it can be somewhat noisy when you rev it up."
