Hyundai Sonata's are very practical, affordable, and reliable!

I purchased my car in 2012 at a previously owned car dealership. It had high mileage on it, when I purchased it, but it has been very reliable, and a great car, overall. I have encountered minimal problems, during my ownership. I have tuned it up, done minor brake work, and I did have to replace the timing belt, in April 2018. As for comfort, I find the Sonata to be very comfortable, and spacious. Performance is very nice, and has the potential to go very fast, if desired. I would definitely buy another one, and highly recommend Hyundai!

James may was right about the Hyundai sonata.

My father bought the car new, and then I inherited the car seven years later. I know he had some problems with it before I started driving the car, but since I have owned it I have had to get the fuel injector coils replaced multiple times, I had a belt shatter and wreak havoc in my engine (which was mostly the dealership's fault), and I recently had to replace the entire onboard computer module. It does drive pretty smoothly and it is a very quiet car, but the gear shift sticks constantly.

My car is great! It is super reliable and efficient.

I love my car because it is very reliable, smooth driving, and efficient. I put at least a few thousand miles on my car every year between driving to friends' houses, work, home, and college. I have never yet had a problem with my car and I have had it for over six years. I use my car for typical transportation, moving my personal effects to and from school, hauling my sister to practices, and carrying things such as my horse tack to go riding. My car is great!
