1990 Hyundai Sonata GLS V6 4dr Sedan


Review

This was my parents car. It only has
89000 miles on it. I use it to commute
~90 mostly highway miles daily. It
makes an OK commuter car. It had a
defective torque converter that was
replaced under warrenty. It has a
problem with the ignition switch.
Installed a push button to bypass the
ignition switch. It is hesitant to
start. The air vents are cheesy and
they have fallen part. The air
conditioner still works but the outside
air vent is now jammed open. A water
leak has rusted the AC blower fan. Put
some oil in it to quiet it down for
now. On humid days the windows can fog
up easily. DO NOT BUY UNLESS YOU KNOW
THE CAR'S COMPLETE HISTORY.


Best Features

IT still runs (for now). Compact size. Mileage is OK ~23mpg not great.


Worst Features

Better climate control system would have been nice. The air vents are cheesy. Seats are uncomfortable.

1990 Hyundai Sonata GLS 4dr Sedan


Review

This car has always started for me and
has been reliable. But for some reason
the engine has become a OIL BURNER. I
feel that this pre-mature for a car
that only has 93000 miles. Perhaps the
4 CYL engine was not appropiate for the
Sonata. The power windows don't
operate very well.


Best Features

Simplicity


Worst Features

Better Engine. The mitsubushi engine wears our prematurly. Also, better power window motors.

1990 Hyundai Sonata GLS 4dr Sedan


Review

My 1990 Hyundai Sonata was a disaster.
This car totally sucked. Every part of
this car malfunctioned just after it
went out of warranty -- including the
battery and the stereo system. I spent
more time in the service department for
this car than I did going to the
grocery store every week. *SIGH*


Best Features

When I traded it in for scrap to pay for my 1993 Honda Del Sol Si.


Worst Features

Stop importanting this car into the United States. Its clutterring up our junk and salvage yards.
