2006 Hyundai Sonata: Reliable comfortable

2006 Hyundai Sonata LX

My Hyundai Sonata is very reliable. I have not had any major engine issues so far. The car has over 175,000 miles on it and has only needed basic repairs and maintenance. The door handles did deteriorate and fall off, as well as a few other cosmetic details. The interior is quite nice and I have driven multiple long distance road trips and stayed quite comfortable.

Small monster machine with great engine

2006 Hyundai Sonata LX

Very good car, only got an oil change and brake change in the last year. Very low maintenance and runs smooth. It drives very fast and when the car is running you can't even hear the engine. The gadgets inside are all classics and takes common sense to control and easy to use. It's not too big but is the perfect small size for me.

- Yolanda M

Comfortable reliable relaxing drive.

2006 Hyundai Sonata LX

I really. Enjoy and live my car. From the moment I first sat in my car I fell in love and safer.believe me this car is beyond reliable and durable. Knowing it's not a 4 wheel drive off roading car I drove it as it were and I never had any issues with it. Other than new tires due to my driving on dirt rocky roads.

- Amber G

it has a sunroof to get the wind in your hair or a view of the night sky.

2006 Hyundai Sonata LX

This is my first car so I think this car run pretty nicely. Since it is 2019 I think I gave it only a rating of 4 since it doesn't have an aux cord, so I have to listen to whatever is on the radio. Also this car runs really smooth. It also takes roughly 40 dollars to fill up the gas tank.

Hyundai 2006 description.

2006 Hyundai Sonata LX

My car drives real smooth, soft interior, built in radio. The engine light is on but still drives smooth. The key chain is broken. It has a sunroof. Loud base. Clean. Needs the breaks and tire rides and wheel alignment. Takes up a lot of gas if I do say so myself

- Destine M

Great car. Go buy you one.

2006 Hyundai Sonata LX

I love my car. I have not had much trouble with it. I bought it new. The door would not lock in back. It was fixed under warranty. Rides good. The only issue I have with it now is it has a squeak on the passenger side front. Looking to get that fixed now.

- Nancy M

Rectangle cup holder is a bad design

2006 Hyundai Sonata LX

The only negative thing I would say about this car is the cup holder is a very bad design. You have to have 2 cups in it or nothing at all. The rectangle design makes for a lot of spilled drinks. I love the way it drives and the gas mileage is decent for a V6.

- Savannah R

A great car definitely recommend this car to anyone

2006 Hyundai Sonata LX

The cart is great . I've never had major issues with my car. Only has 100K miles on it. I definitely recommend these cars or Hyundai's in general . I've owned nothing but these in the passed 6 years. Other than this car is a V6 & eats up in gas I love my car

- Rosa C

I've had this car for two years and it's a wonderful vehicle overall !

2006 Hyundai Sonata LX

Very reliable car, has a few transmission problems but overall a great car. Good on gas, decent cabin space, sunroof is a plus. A lot of mechanical work has been done to this vehicle but I've never been stuck somewhere outside of a jump or a flat tire.
