2007 Sonata: a big bang for your buck. It is a praise worthy car.

2007 Hyundai Sonata

Hyundai 2007 Sonata is one of the most reliable vehicles on the roads today. The features of the car are impeccable, such as the heated and adjustable seats, ventilation and air conditioning. The gas mileage was really the selling point for me. Compared to a lot of cars, this Sonata gives consumers the biggest bang for their buck when it comes to saving on gas. Most importantly, it is a very dependable vehicle. I drive my siblings around very often to and from places and knowing that the car I am driving is reliable is an amazing feeling. Honestly, the only thing I would say could improve about this car is the amount of time it takes for it to get up to speed. For example, every morning on my way to school I have to pull out from a stop sign into highway traffic traveling at 55 miles per hour. Often times, when pulling out in traffic it takes a while for the car to get up to speed with the rest of the vehicles, sometimes causing a problem in traffic. On a more positive note, the design of the Sonata is very appealing to the eye and is still "with the times" even though it is 11 years old. I see myself, if not keeping this Sonata for a long time, investing in another Sonata in the future. Hyundai is a car brand that I love and trust with my safety. I highly recommend this car, and more importantly, this brand of cars to everyone. There are multiple features of this car that everyone can appreciate.

11 years and still going!

2007 Hyundai Sonata

After 11 years of owning a Hyundai Sonata I can honestly say that there’s no way I would ever own a car other than a Hyundai. It is super reliable, never have I ever had a problem that couldn’t be managed by the service team. It is super comfortable and I have been on plenty of road trips to attest to its comfort. I live in the north east I have had my share of snowstorms, summer heat, rain, and good weather, and my Sonata has done nothing but excel through all types of weather. I have only had standard problems that any car owner would have with my Hyundai, such as tire replacement or recalls on my car but Hyundai service is great and always provides me with a rental. I have features on my Sonata such as cruise control, CD player, XM radio, pretty much just a standard for vehicles. I would recommend Hyundai to anybody and everybody that I know you cannot get a more reliable vehicle then Hyundai, plus it has an amazing warranty. I do not know many vehicles that would last 11 years and still be going like I just bought it yesterday, soon I want to be looking for a new car but not because my Sonata is coming to its end, it is because I want a new vehicle and will be able to pass down my Sonata to my daughter who it is starting to drive and I know that Hyundai cars will keep her safe and sound while she’s on the road as a new driver.

A really reliable 10+ years car: Hyundai Sonata

2007 Hyundai Sonata SE

My 2007 Hyundai Sonata is very reliable. I bought it used in 2012 from someone who had it after the transmission was rebuilt. In the seven years that I've driven this car, I have been able to commute to and from school, work, and drive up to a hour long each way traveling between cities with ease. If had to change any parts, the mechanic easily found, purchased, and installed the parts with no difficulty. Being that I'm 5' 4', the adjustable seat and rear view mirror allows me to sit and see comfortably while I'm driving. However, my radio screen has been affected by sun damage. I have to strain my eyes to make out the numbers as I channel search. Also, I remembered searching for an AUX outlet and it was nowhere to be found. I settled for using the CD player but now, I rarely play CDs. Plus, there's is not a Bluetooth feature. The worst experience that I've had with my car is that the keyless remote fell and broke apart. I hadn't replaced it and I have mistakenly locked my keys in the car a few times. But, in all those instances, I'm grateful that my keys weren't in the ignition because whenever I open my door, the sound alerts me to remove them. I really appreciate that.
