2013 Sonata SE Turbo
2013 Sonata SE, Turbo loaded. I’ve enjoyed driving this car for the past 9, almost 10 years, and plan on driving it for many more years. The only minor complaints is the road noise is a little loud, and the back seat is a bit rough to ride in I hear. I think it’s a great car, and the third Sonata we’ve owned. I’ve had no problems with it.
Please read my review and look up that Lawsuit
This car is not reliable and has been a headache. I purchased it for the design, appeal, accessories and all those are nice and it runs great WHEN IT IS RUNNING. I have had to dealt with the light issues mentioned by others. The rearlights and brake lights go out all the time. I have gotten tickets for this. The headlights go off as well but not as much. This is all small fry compared to the engine seizing, stalling or catching fire per the recall. Worse of all the Hyundai Motors America nor Hyundai dealers want to deal with replacing the engine. I have had to go through so many hoops and perform so many tricks for the dealers to honor the Hyundai engine replacement. I am currently going through the process. My car has been at the dealer for weeks now. This car has given me so much grief. It was fun to drive and be in but that IS NOTHING compared to having to replace the engine at about 70k. And it is due to manufacturing errors but they want to blame on owner negligence. Look up Hyunda Theta II engine lawsuit before purchasing any Sonata years 2011 - 2019. They should place this here on this vehicle review of they are really serving their customers and consumers on this site instead of covering it up.
Have had nothing but trouble with this car for years! Started right after I bought it and has never stopped! I would never recommend this nake to anyone!
