"I bought my 03 Sonata in May of 08 with 71k and I have not had ANY problems with it so far and I have 87k on it. The car is VERY comfy, the driver seat kind of hugs me. This car reminds me of my first car, an 88 Cougar, without the problems! All of my friends and family who have been in my car have always gave compliments of the ride, style and gas milage. Hyundai is def worth buying for their prices. My sister bought a 2000 Honda Accord for $10k in good condition, I bought my 03 Sonata for $8k in Excellent condition with LESS miles. Only flaws is my check engine light came on lastnight, but the car is running great. Called Hyundai and they said it could be the gas cap, click it 3 times and start it up, drive it 2 miles or more, shut it off.. and repeat that 10 times. Easy enough if that's the problem!!!!! They were VERY helpful. Also, the paint on the door handles are chipped, will be getting touch up paint and doing that myself, otherwise the interior and rest of the exterior are in wonderful condition. Very impressed with the Sonata."
"Overall, this is a good vehicle. I like the Hyundai willingness to stand behind their product on drive train.
It is a great drive, and makes you feel like you are in a luxury vehicle. It has a very roomy interior, which I appreciate as a bigger guy. I also appreciate the very smooth run of the motor and as well as its performance. It is great on gas for a V6, and gives in the vicinity of 32mi per gallon.
My only concern is in the cornering of the vehicle... It seems light and becomes unstable on sharp curves."
