Hyundai sonata is a solid vehicle as a family car.
2010 Hyundai Sonata GLS
My Hyundai has been far better than my initial expectations. I traded in a Saturn l300 that was fully loaded, but beyond it is useful life. The dealership had changed to Hyundai with the death of the Saturn brand, and I liked the dealership. While my sonata is not the totally stripped down model, it is pretty bare-bones. It has had no real issues mechanically, and has maintained well as far as appearance is concerned, too - no paint issues, etc. I have around 125,000 miles on it, and only routine maintenance has been needed. The brakes have been replaced recently, but no transmission problems or physical defects have occurred since I bought it new in 2010.
