The 2026 Sonata has too many problems. Signal lights that may give just the opposite of what it should, goes into limp mode and the dealerships don't want to deal with the problems, a class action suit was filed because of the motor and electrical problems. It has been nine months that my car has been at the dealership and they refuse to fix the car. Hundai headquarters in California is of no help. I previously had a Hundai Santa Fe and it was fine. The Hundai Sonata when it runs like it should and has a smooth ride and plenty of power. My car's vin number was on the list for approval of fixing the problems. 9 months later it is still at the dealership. Very poor service


Great experience with our cash purchase

The car is in great condition and well maintained. The best used car experience I have ever had! Thank you for a trustworthy buying experience.


Stay away from Hyundai

Had I known from the day I purchased a 2016 Hyundai sonota would be the day i have to come out of pocket with repair expense left and right I would of stayed far away from Hyundai but lesson learned and i will never buy another Hyundai again it is a horrible car with bad noisy shaking engines and the car burns oil like crazy i did my research come to find out others had the same problem with their Hyundai the Hyundai brand is a joke


Electrical front headlights, will cost 600. Not go

This car is costing more then it's worth. Headlight system is attached to total light, headlight cost $600 to repair. Never again will I buy from this company.


I absolutely love this car

This car is everything it’s more than what I expected very comfortable and roomy its really silent upon start up and it drive so smooth


Very Disappointed

My car is a 2016 it only has 89,000 miles on it. I just took my car to the garage was told my engine needs to be replaced. NOT ACCEPTABLE. Been researching Hyundai Sonatas since I got home many issues with alit of many different years with this car. STAY AWAY FROM A HYUNDAI


The engine is using oil, a quart per 1000 miles.

Engine tested by Hyundai, meticulous oil change records... no satisfaction. We still owe 9 grand on this car. Had a 2010 that went 200k with no problems. Hyundai Sonatas are a crap shoot.


Burns oil

I have a 2016 sonata and it burns oil, after 3000 miles it burns a qt of oil. I'm not happy with my car, it only has 62000 miles.


Great certified car

Certified 2016 Sonata in great condition, inside and out. Well maintained by previous owner. Many safety features, which was what I was looking for. Blue link system. Very roomy.


Never had it in the shop other than maintenance

This is the beat bang for the buck entry level full size sedan you can purchase right now. Excellent styling and features for the price.
