1990 Hyundai Sonata Sedan 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*


Favorite Features

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


Suggested Improvements

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

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.


Favorite Features

Simplicity


Suggested Improvements

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

1990 Hyundai Sonata Sedan 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.


Favorite Features

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


Suggested Improvements

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