Feels like a full-size luxury sedan but does not cost anywhere near the price.

I really love this car. Previously I owned a Chevrolet Malibu for 15 years that I bought new and treated like a baby. It was nothing but problems and cost me so much money in repairs I swore never to buy a Chevy again. I did a lot of research on this Hyundai. I really enjoy the size of the sedan it feels like a full size car even though it is midsize. It has so many included features that other companies would charge extra for and its safety features are unparalleled. It drives like a dream, makes tight corners, stops on a dime, and with the blue link that comes standard for 3 years will send me an email monthly telling me it is status. This is the best car I have ever owned.

I love my 2016 Hyundai Sonata sedan!

I love everything about this car except for one thing. The front driver and passenger seats are quite low. The front passenger seat is not adjustable, and the front driver's seat is but not enough. The performance is top notch. The safety is top notch. One of my favorite features is not only the back up camera but the ability to shift into manual transmission during the snowy days of winter. The gas mileage is impressive while improving depending on the type of driver's mode you select, starting with eco to sports, which I prefer on the highway. This is my third Hyundai, and I will not chose another car.

Great cars, poor finance company, poor customer service!

I have nothing bad to say about this car. I have had no issues with the car. I love it is features, performance and I have had no mechanical issues. The only problem I have had is with Hyundai motor finance who you are forced to use if you lease a new Hyundai. They are worthless and may as well not have a customer service department. I also have issue with the fact Hyundai motor company will not assist you with any issue you have with the finance company bearing their name, even though they make you use them if you lease one of their vehicles.
