Extremely spacious, reliable and comfortable features.

2013 Hyundai Sonata Limited

I personally love my car and have been very impressed with it overall. I have been driving it for about a year and a half. I have done the regular maintenance work. Most recently paid a lot of money to fix the gas pump which I think was the fault of the person who put gas in my car last not the car's fault. Other than that it has been good to me, no problems. It has the panoramic sunroof which I absolutely love. I love the feature of the GPS even though it has to be updated. It has leather seats which are not ideal during the hot summer months but that would be the case in any car with leather seats. It is very reliable, I have traveled far with it and it has more than 100,000 miles at this point. It has a very spacious trunk. I am amazed by the power it has in the highway, it is a smooth drive which makes it difficult for you to realize you are going 100 mph unless you look. At first sight I was concerned with the size of the car. I am a heavy woman (240 lbs) and thought I needed more space. Though the car looks small on the outside, it is very spacious on the inside. I have a toddler so there is ample space between his car seat and the passenger seat so he does not feel constrained. I can comfortably it my brother who is over 6 feet tall so that alone is an accomplishment.

Great gas mileage with great pickup (2.0 turbo).

2013 Hyundai Sonata SE

When gas prices were quite high I decided to find a more economical choice than my SUV to drive my 45 minute commute to work five days a week. I researched many vehicles prior to making a decision. I chose the Hyundai sonata 2.0 turbo because of its reliability, warranty, safety, gas mileage, performance and appearance. . Overall I have been satisfied with this vehicle but disappointed to say the least when my engine seized up in the middle of nowhere four hours from home with only 54,000 miles on the odometer. This is very rare for this engine, which had to be replaced. I have since traveled across the country and back without any problems. I quickly found out that the performance tires, which I love the looks of, do not fare well on wisconsin winter roads. By purchasing winter tires and alternating them with my performance tires I can safely enjoy driving my sonata all year round. I would not want to be without the turbo engine for this vehicle with all of the highway driving that I do. It is a great option versus buying a car with a v8.

2013 Sonata Nice car but won't charge my iPhone.

2013 Hyundai Sonata SE

The clear coat on my car is peeling, I cannot charge my iPhone in my car you need a special dual charger that cost $40.00, I bought a less expensive one from eBay and it did not work. It has a USB port and an Audio port. And a round port for a lighter. But these still will not charge my phone. The car runs great is good on gas and has a backup camera and navigation on board. Power windows and moonroof. Hands free phone and Bluetooth. The dealer said that quite a few 2013 Hyundais have the problem with the charger and it only affects the iPhone. So if you have an iPhone and would like to be able to charge it in your car, be sure you look and ask before you buy. It has black partial leather seats which get very warm in the summer, so if the windows are not tinted you will need blinds for the front windows so you can touch the steering wheel. It is a nice car and I really like the body style of it.
