1993 Sonata/STD/5-speed trans
By Sonata01 on
1993 Hyundai Sonata 4dr Sedan
I bought my Sonata brand new in 1994
(it was leftover stock from 1993) for
the price of a used Ford Tempo. In
other words, I got a real bargain on a
brand new car (I knew the risk I was
taking on Hyundai in the early 90s).
Ten years later, I still own the car,
and haven't spent a penny on anything
but oil, fuel, and windshield wiper
fluid. I bought the base version,
which came with standard air
conditioning (still works), tilt
steering wheel, and a good stereo. The
interior is quite roomy and the
driver's seat has a height adjustment
for short drivers.
Remote trunk release, remote fuel door
release. Electronic (automatic)
seatbelts: Good for old passengers, who
find it difficult to reach behind the
seat and grab the belt. The lap
portion is very easy to attach.
Fifth gear should be more of an
overdrive gear. At 60 MPH, the engine
turns at close to 3000 RPM, which makes
for good throttle response, but isn't
great on gas and doesn't seem
appropriate for a family sedan.
