Great in all weather, minor interior design quirks

2008 Hyundai Sonata Limited

I only have minor complaints about the Sonata. The cup holders are sized impractically for only one beverage - all too often my morning coffee ends up spilling over either from acceleration or braking. Mechanically I haven't had any issues, but my reverse lights are not currently working despite new bulbs, and the tpms dash light has been lit since shortly after I bought it a year ago. The car is well powered, handles almost as well as my previous one, a 2013 Dodge Dart, and does far better in the snow. I've made it through icy roads that stranded larger and smaller vehicles alike. I work at a hospital on a large hill, and I've not had to call out once for fear of not making it to work.

Great car, great value. Bang for your buck.

2008 Hyundai Sonata Limited

My 2008 Hyundai sonata is reliable and easy to use. It has not had many issues over the years. Had to get a new co2 sensor and a new transmission switch, but that is about it. I have 150,000 miles and she still runs amazingly. I go to school 1.5 hours away and it is reliable to travel back and forth. The sun visors do not stay up, neither the driver or passenger. I put a new radio in, but the speakers still work great. Cruise control works well. It is overall a great car that is reliable and great for a college student.

My used 2008 limited sonata

2008 Hyundai Sonata Limited

I purchased a 2008 Sonata Limited from CarMax in 2010. For all of the comfort and luxury features, you would think it cost more. It has never once broke down on me and I drive it roughly. Plush leather seats with built in heaters. Plenty of legroom in the back. Awesome gas mileage! This is a really great car that has gone under the radar keeping the price low. I love it!

Big power in a small package!

2008 Hyundai Sonata Limited

I enjoy having a compact car but one that still has decent horsepower for my drive. It also has the ability to tow since it has a powerful 6 cylinder engine. The trunk space is massive. I bought this car used with 100,000 miles already on it but even so, the car has remained very reliable and trustworthy. I love how it handles and I don't really have any complaints.

Hyundai Sonata compact travel car

2008 Hyundai Sonata Limited

Had problems with wheels shaking while braking at high speed. Other than that car is nice for it to be an 08'. Seat warmers work well, comes with ashtray and cup holders in the back seat. Cup holders in the front of inefficient in holding drinks, when you break they fall forward.

It's a good vehicle. Gets us where we are going

2008 Hyundai Sonata Limited

Our vehicle has been very dependable for our family with the exception of having to replace the motor. We live it otherwise and it always gets us where we are going. It's provided us with a very dependable family car since 2008. We would consider buying another Hyundai.
