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.

Basic car, but very reliable!

2001 Hyundai Sonata Base

It has lasted a long time. It has 226,000 miles on it now. It just doesn't want to quit. Very reliable. Not very many features besides just basics. You won't really fit to well if you are tall. The seats don't go down far enough. It is pretty decent in the gas mileage for an older car.
