Now in its seventh generation, the 2015 Hyundai Sonata is attempting to square up buyers who want a little more luxury without breaking the bank. On that, the all-new Sonata delivers.

The sport model drives in automatic or standard and eco are nice features.

2015 Hyundai Sonata

Problems: we I bought the car it had several problems. I have my car for 3 weeks and something went wrong with the engine. It took a month and a half to fix. The part I needed was on back order so the had to take the part off another new part to fix it or it wouldn't be fixed for at least 3 months. The passenger window motor kept going out. It went out 3 times within one year. Performance: the car is a Sonata sport so that is a good performance feature the I use often. Reliability: other than the first problem I had, I rely on the newness of the car. The car also has a bumper to bumper warranty so I have confidence that the car will be fixed Accordingly when a problem arises. Comfort: when taking long trips the car is comfortable about 4 hours into the drive. Features: the car has several extra features but I do not use them all. When I bought the car the salesmen didn't show us all the features that the car had. I am still learning about the features from time to time or by word of mouth. The features are very hard to navigate. They should be easier to navigate by yourself without having to read the manual, looking on YouTube or asking someone how things work. I know there are more features on the car that I am not aware of.

Hyundai Sonata- comfort and function

2015 Hyundai Sonata Limited

Comfort wise I love my vehicle; it's spacious, easy to drive, and I'm able to easily load and unload my wheelchair. My car was wonderfully reliable for the first three years, but recently I've run into a few problems. My battery died, my power steering went out and my tire blew all in the same week. Most of this wasn't necessarily the performance of the car, but general upkeep, it was just frustrating it all happened at the same time. One issue that was the result of the car was that there was a recall on a part in the engine but there wasn't any notification. I happened to take in the car to get the tires changed and they mentioned it. I wish I would have known, I would have taken it in sooner. I got the base model so I don't have all the bells and whistles, but I do have Bluetooth and a backup camera. The center console has an easy to use screen and I have controls on the steering wheel. In my new car I'll look forward to having carplay. My car also has a large tank for gas, so it gets a little pricey to fill up, but then it lasts for awhile. All in all I like the Sonata and am looking to just get an upgraded version when I trade it in.

2015 Hyundai Sonata SE- Simplicity is a feature...

2015 Hyundai Sonata 2.4L SE

It is a good vehicle overall. The cabin gets a bit loud when driving on the freeway, the A/C does something weird if it not on the max setting and the seats are not the most comfortable for long road trips. The car is very spacious however, and there is plenty of legroom in the front seat, back seat, and trunk. The back seat is much lower than the front seats, which is a bit odd and makes passengers feel like a kid again, sitting in the backseat, barely able to see out the window. Would make a fairly good family car however. It is a safe vehicle overall, and gets very good mileage, up to 35 mpg on the freeway, when on Eco mode and with cruise control on. I am definitely a fan of Hyundai and their vehicles, would consider buying a Hyundai again. My car is pretty basic in terms of special features and the screen is also not very fancy like newer cars. No back up camera and no touchscreen radio/navigation. Haven't really had any maintenance issues. Great value for the vehicle, however.
