Nothing but praise for my Sonata.
Terrific pickup and braking power. Fuel economy is good but not great. Comfort and control are wonderful with no body roll. Handles very well at high speed. Good mirror vision. Must learn to judge size of vehicle as difficult to determine position by panels. Great little turning circle. Dash controls and lights are great. Additional boot room through rear seats folding down. Easy to enter and exit with huge amount of interior space. All round great vehicle. I intend to buy another one when it's time.
Maybe it was because we got it used....it only had 100 thousand miles this year(2007) but the transmission was shot, it wouldn't pass emmisions, interior features were lacking at best, at least the engine ran somewhat allright. Perhaps neglect in the past lead this car to what it is today, all I know is this car is better suited for the junkyard.
