Good, reliable vehicle that works for shorter individuals

2001 Hyundai Sonata Base

First off, I purchased my car from another family about 5 years back when the car was already pretty aged. I think the car has held up pretty fantastically. Given that I purchased it as a used car, I expected to maybe get a few years out of it before it broke down but I am currently 5 years into driving it and it is still holding up. However, I have noticed that sometimes when I am stopped at a stop light for too long the engine simply shorts out. It always restarts for me though and I can keep driving to my destination but no mechanic I have taken the car to seems to be able to fix the problem. Overall my sonata has truly done a wonderful job at keeping me where I need to be and when I need to be there. It has never truly broken down on me. The only internal problem I've ever run into is when the vcr player ate a converter I inserted and I still cannot get it out. But that is a relatively minor thing and does not reflect car functionality at all. One thing I really appreciate about this car is that the seat is able to slide quite far forward as I am a rather small individual. I don't have any problems seeing over the steering wheel and being able to reach the pedals. I have had problems with many other car types centered around my height and size but this car has been great for me.

The car ran great until it first broke down. It's broken down five times in three months, and over $1000 worth of problems at least and still not fixed.

2001 Hyundai Sonata

I loved my car when I first got it from a family friend, it drove great. After a few months of having it though it broke down and bought a new battery, then broke down again a day after I got the battery. Then I got a new alternator and another battery, broke down. Then Rick Johnson put a new belt and harmonic sensor on, and broke down again. Then a new alternator again. It's something electrical supposedly, and am waiting for it to be fixed again.

I have a Hyundai sonata a very nice choice for daily commute or even travel.

2001 Hyundai Sonata GLS

My Hyundai sonata is a very durable well built vehicle. I have had no mechanical problems for the two years I've had it. I've drove it camping multiple times on rough terrain and cross country with no problems. The interior is made with the customers comfort in mind and the seats are very comfortable and supportive.
