Loving My 2004 Hyundai Sonata

2004 Hyundai Sonata Base

I absolutely love my 2004 Hyundai Sonata. I only have 73,000 miles on it, but I have had no problems with it whatsoever There have been no recalls of any kind. The car is as reliable as the day is long. It is a very comfortable riding car. I have only had to do normal maintenance. I get the oil changed when necessary. For the most part, the car takes care of itself. I didn't have any extra features put on the car, just what comes with it. I would buy another Hyundai Sonata in a heartbeat. I have had the car for over 15 years and I don't plan on replacing it unless some major repair needs to be made. The car has never been in an accident and the body is in great shape. There is no rust. I love my Hyundai Sonata.

Has been reliable. Changed my mind on disposing cars

2004 Hyundai Sonata GLS

I own it. However the miles are way too high, its running decent though. Get somewhere I need to go. It's been great although AC does not work. I purchased it over a year ago with high miles however I needed a vehicle and it was only $800 so I bought it. I have had no problems out of it other than the air conditioner. The work on it is easy for the most part. I normally only go for a Chevrolet, but the Hyundai has been a great car for me other than not being good on gas and being smaller than any vehicle I have had. Would consider buying another in the future

Good Family Car, for moms and their babies. Good gas mileage.

2004 Hyundai Sonata Base

My car is older so of course I'm having issues now with a/c, brakes, replacing tires, and all that but overall it's a great family car. Small, good on gas and mileage, it's lasted me 7 years so far with close to no issues as far as the car goes. The comfort is great if you are small, my husband is taller and has a bit of a hard time fitting in the car. It's great for me and the kids though to ride around. Heavier set people have a hard time fitting too. There aren't many features on my vehicle since it's old but I know the newer models have tons of feature.
