A wise decision results in a touch of luxury with my Hyundai sonata.

2012 Hyundai Sonata 2.4L Limited

This is a solid vehicle with a lot of get up and go. It has a smooth ride like an expensive luxury car. This car will take a beating and still deliver performance. The infinity stereo is factory. It has pros and cons. If you listen to the stereo with the car turned off you will drain your battery. The sound coming from the stereo though, is high definition crisp and satisfying. The leather interior will hold up even through hauling some big items. The leg room in the front is sufficient but the back is not so comfortable. The lumbar support on the driver seat is a life saver. The panoramic sunroof is awesome day it is night! The trunk will hold to full size suitcases with room left. The car handles like a dream. The price is easy on the pocket book.

easy to drive, reliable, great gas mileage

2012 Hyundai Sonata 2.4L Limited

Love the car, it is fuel efficient, reliable, gets good gas mileage. Have had almost no maintenance other than oil changes. It is also fast to accelerate on highway. Good car to train our son to drive in. We trust Hyundai and feel good quality, especially for the price you pay definitely get money worth. Resale value great.

Feel Sinatra has been just ok.

2012 Hyundai Sonata 2.4L Limited

A number of recalls. Have issues with audio controls on steering wheel that couldn't catch happening during warranty time. Things such as turning volume up and it goes down. Not changing stations. Also have something leaking now which I am not sure if oil. Otherwise, been ok.

To highlight an interesting detail would be that it has two sunroofs

2012 Hyundai Sonata 2.4L Limited

I have had this car since last July and I bought it used with 88,000 miles on it. I now have 100,000 miles and I have had no problems with it. I like the way it looks, it's good on gas, it has two sunroofs which is really nice. I would buy a brand new one if I could.

Sonata 2012. Smooth ride when driving on freeway.

2012 Hyundai Sonata 2.4L Limited

My sonata is a very comfortable ride. Excellent gas mileage. We have driven a few times to Washington state. One reason I like this car is because it is real roomy inside. I have two sons that are 6'1 and 6'4. They fit in my car with no problem. Front or back seat.

My Hyundai Sonata Experience Summary

2012 Hyundai Sonata 2.4L Limited

I love my Hyundai. It's spacious but it is also fast and drives great. I've put many miles on it since I bought it. I did have a recall on it due to possibly having metal shavings in the engine but they fixed it for me and paid part of my rental car fee.
