James may was right about the Hyundai sonata.

2005 Hyundai Sonata GL

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 little silver car. This is my dream car for this year.

2005 Hyundai Sonata GL

I bought my car last year it is silver with silver trim. It is 4 door and has a sunroof. It is a very nice car I love driving it to work everyday. It gets about 25 to 30 dollars to fill the gas tank a week I love that about my car. It is got a nice pick up and go. And it is very comfortable. It has a seat warmers under both seats but the driver's side stopped work. I love my little silver car it is my favorite car so far.

2005 Hyundai Sonata A dazzling Tale

2005 Hyundai Sonata GL

Well the thing about my 2005 Hyundai Sonata is that it takes care of me, very reliable, very low mileage and great gas saver. With a smooth transition it's just like riding on air. I feel amazing. Feels if 0-60 in 4 seconds is a understatement. Nice cool a/c with a nice system to ease my mind. If you're looking for great quality plus comfort bells and whistles the 2005 Hyundai sonata is a great pick.

- Leo S

The 05 Sonata is a great and reliable vehicle! Be sure to check it out!

2005 Hyundai Sonata GL

I love this car! It originally was owned by my girlfriend's grandfather and with regular maintenance it should last forever! I've never had any major issues with it as its very reliable and trustworthy vehicle. As well as very comfortable. I've actually spent many nights in the backseat camping. The truck also has plenty of room for anything you might need. All around just a great vehicle!

- Austin B

2005 Hyundai Sonata: Old but comfortable

2005 Hyundai Sonata GL

I bought this car from a used car place about 4 years ago. The previous owner had it in great condition, it's very clean and seemed well care of for its age. Since I've purchased it I've had to replace tires, brakes and now the radiator and the water pump. It has 150k miles on it. It's very comfortable to drive but I would like a new car in the next two years.

- Cecilia S

Its meh. It's an older car so it has excuses but still.

2005 Hyundai Sonata GL

Bad suspension makes speed humps a crealy chore. The clock and radio are both broken, and the entire center console is non functional. The compartment that is the drivers arm rest is sealed shut and we can't open it, the drivers side window operates on its own, doors won't unlock with button every time.

- Katrina O

A great driving car for long road trips

2005 Hyundai Sonata GL

Drives smooth and has great gas mileage. So far no problems except door locks. The motors in the door locks go bad. It has automatic door locks. It's a comfortable to drive on long trips. Also has multiple cup holders in the back for the kids to use. Easy to put car seats in the back seat.

- Sharon D

2005 Hyundai sonata very good car

2005 Hyundai Sonata GL

It is very reliable it does not get the gas mileage that I wish it would it's an older car so it's beginning to need to have pieces replaced but exceptionally good vehicle for its age. It has less than 200,000 miles on it and still runs very good. The engineering and operation is excellent

Hyundai... Reliable & Luxury

2005 Hyundai Sonata GL

I lease my vehicle in 2015. Paid it off in 2018. I have not had any major repairs. Other than maintenance repairs. Oil change, brakes & etc. My car is in excellent condition. I have no special features. It mid size car so it's great on gas. She does great on long distance travels.

Great car for being used and 14 years old.

2005 Hyundai Sonata GL

I've owned my car for about three years now. My car has a lot of miles so the get up and go is gone. I have had a lot of issues with the check engine light going on and off but again my car is used and about 14 years old. I do love my sunroof probably my favorite part of my car.

- Nicole S

Nice gray matte with 4 brand new tires

2005 Hyundai Sonata GL

Runs great it's comfortable and spacious. Runs well air condition is great and so are the seats. Cheap oil change steering wheel is comforting. Enough room for six people also a lot of room in the trunk. Room for groceries chairs and tools. Car runs smoothly with no problems

- Jeremy A

14 year old car and can still make cross country trips!

2005 Hyundai Sonata GL

This car has always been reliable. It is a 2005 and made it from Illinois to Florida and back. Very reliable the entire trip, and still gets okay gas mileage. This car has made it through three owners from an older lady to a 20 year old. I would recommend it to buyers

- Jenna B

Overheating, we are working on it.

2005 Hyundai Sonata GL

The car was purchased second hand through a dealer. The car worked fine when I got it. Later it started having issues with overheating. We have replaced the radiator, and had to refill the oil, the thermostat was has to be replaced which we are currently working on.

- Robert D

Very beautiful and reliable car

2005 Hyundai Sonata GL

This car is very reliable and runs very smoothly. I bought it used and I have never had any issues with it since my purchase. Not the most fuel efficient car, but you still get your money's worth after initial purchase. Also has a very sleek interior and exterior.

- Miguel E

Reliable car with comfort

2005 Hyundai Sonata GL

This is one of the most reliable vehicles I have ever owned and.comfortable. It is big enough to fit a family but also perfect for someone single. The stock radio did go out in it if I had to find a negative. It's great on gas and smooth on the road. Must have
