Good solid car

I have a 2017 Sonata SE that has been a very good, reliable vehicle. I spend alot of time on the road for my job and it had never given me any issues; very comfortable, gas mileage around 30+. As many others have said, the engine conked out at around 124,000 mi. The dealer replaced it with a new factory engine 2 mos ago. A week after I got it back, the accelerator something or other broke so I took it back and had to pay $500 to repair it. (they swore it was unrelated- I dont think so) Other than that, it has been a great car.


Problem with car

After 68,000 in three week period had to replace headlight assembly, anti knock sensor and both valve cover and oil pan gasket replaced. None of it covered. After owning 4 sonatas will look for something else.


Terrible car

I purchased this car in the limited edition. It is now 6 yrs old and has had engine problems on 2 different occasions. It is unreliable and when talking to service dept, I was told, "it happens" Need to go back to a more reliable car such as Toyota or Honda. I will never again purchase a Hyundai.


SELL before the warranty goes out!

The engine blew at 120k miles. Always did complete maintenance on the car. The 17-19 years had bad engines, personally know 2 other people with the same car that both had their engines blow with under 100k miles.


Trunk latch recall - MAYBE

Trunk latch recall for 2017 Sonatas - but NOT mine??? So I am riding around with a trunk that does not close AND even though I will have to pay for it - the dealer DOES NOT have the part.


Bad Engine

I bought this car used and I stayed in a rental car more than my car. It only had 50,000 miles on it when I bought it. I kept up with my oil changes and the engine was bad at 101,000 miles. Save your money and don’t buy this Sonata. Hyundai refused to fix it so I will never buy a Hyundai again.


Great car!

Very happy with my purchase! I love my car! It’s roomy and drives very well. The interior is a light gray and it looks great with the white exterior. The backup camera is a plus too


Great Car

This car checks all the boxes. We are a family of 5 who typically drive a suburban, but when we want something with better gas mileage but that we can all ride in comfortably, this is your car. There is so much room in the back. Nice interior and all the electronics to boot.


Very classy, smooth ride, with a lot of space

My Hyundai Sonata Sport is elite. It rides smooth, it's spacious, holds convenient functions, tons of storage space, reacts quickly and is super reliable. I've never felt safer in a vehicle.


Great used car.

So far I am very impressed with car. Always nervous buying a used car. But it was certified pre own and I put a bumper to bumper warranty on it just in case. The car runs great and looks great. Drive and handles real well. Looks and runs like it was brand new. Love apple play and all the interior features.
