I love my 2013 Sonata Hybrid

Excellent gas mileage. Very comfortable. Smooth ride. Despite having it for 7 years, I still can't say enough about this beautiful, durable car! Glad I purchased it when I did (early 2014) because the body style changed shortly afterwards... Yuck! I would not have bought the newer style without the distinctive Hyundai curves. It turned boxy and looked just like a Kia. No style at all. Back to my 2013 Hybrid... the style, comfort, gas efficiency and reliability has made it the best automobile I've ever owned. That includes all the vehicles I've purchased new: 1988 BMW 320e-manual, 1992 Chevy Beretta-manual, 2001 Pontiac Grand Prix (#3 fave), 2005 VW Jetta TDI (great gas mileage but uncomfortable, cramped & ugly compact... my hubby actually purchased this without my input), and a 2007 Dodge Ram 2500 w/Cummins Diesel (I highly recommend if you're shopping for a comfy, yet very powerful truck. It's great in the snow & awesome for pulling our 5th wheel! ) I've always done lots of research on used cars I bought (only minor repairs, minimal body work, any/all maintenance records, low mileage & able to pass inspection at the manufacturer's dealership. Although I enjoyed them all, there's only 1 I liked almost as much as my Sonata: a 2006 Mercedes 230S (but rear-wheel drive couldn't handle even an inch of Colorado snow.) My other used cars: a 1976 BMW 530i (my 1st car & nostalgic even in 1989), a 1992 Honda Accord, 1994 Honda Civic -manual, & a 1995 Jeep Wrangler 4.0L-manual (lots fun but horrible gas mileage.) Anyway, I was actually in the market for a Subaru Legacy, but I'd admired the style (pre-Kia-shaped) of the Sonata (and Elantra)...Low & behold, I happened to see a Hyundai dealership just before I got to Subaru. Whew... So glad I chose to check it out 1st! Kind, honest, matter-of-fact dealer named James who explained everything so well... And didn't try to take advantage of a selling to a likely less experienced WOMAN. Although I hadn't even thought about getting a hybrid, they were having a great close out sale on their 2013s to make more room for incoming 2014s... He explained the similarities & differences between the hybrid & the regular Sonata. No pressure whatsoever. After a test-drive (including more questions and performance lessons/tests & explanations of its many unexpected bells and whistles), I fell in love with it! Took hubby to check it out the next day and he immediately agreed that James was one of the good-guys in auto sales. He also loved the car (even though I was buying it for myself.) *In case you're wondering, I did go ahead & check out the Legacy. Same price, no upgrades like the Sonata, and completely unable to get out of its own way... No take off power at all & I was completely underwhelmed. Plus, Subaru is practically the Official Car of the State of Colorado, so the kid who "helped" me (and couldn't answer even the general, simple questions about the car), acted as though he'd made a sale the minute I walked through the door. ** I'm not bashing Subaru as a car company... I have many friends who love theirs and I wouldn't discount owning one someday. But genuine interest in helping the customer find what they seek added with kindness, honesty and integrity made for an amazing & unexpectedly comfortable experience (and a fabulous car) that I continue to cherish 7 years later. James at Arapahoe Hyundai set a very high bar for all my future car buying!

MOST RELIABLE CAR I HAVE EVER OWNED!

My 2013 Hyundai Sonata Limited 2.0T is a great fun car to drive. It is quicker than 99% of the cars on the road, and the engine and transmission are powerful and smooth. I like how it looks, and is still a great car in every way.

This is the most reliable car I've ever owned.

I still love my car after 75,000 miles. It is quick and fun to drive. We are rocking winter in IL right now, and the car handles great in the snow, especially with Bridgestone Blizzak tires. They are grippy even on ice. Just went with all new brake rotors and ceramic brake pads. The stock brakes were really good and lasted a long time, but this setup is the CHEESE!
