I really like this car alot. I drove this car for about a week some time ago and when I heard that the car was for sale I immediatly offered to buy it. What really left an impression on me about this car was the power of the engine. It really seems to make the most of it's 3.0 V6. I've driven cars with comparable engines and this one outperforms them by far. The interior is very comfortable and of good quality. Power windows, locks, moon roof, all nice features to have. Overall, it's a pretty nice car.

I just "retired" my 1997 Sonata due to
a major mechanical problem and was very
upset to have to do so because up until
this incident this vehicle performed
FLAWLESSLY for me. I had absolutely no
mechanical problems whatsoever with
this car and it was by far the best
vehicle I have ever owned up to this
point (I am 35 years old)

I bought my Sonata used a couple years
ago. It ran fine for about six
months. When it hit 100,000 it fell
apart. I've had it in the shop about
twice a month for the last year and a
half. It has been one headache after
another. I would recommend that you
not touch this car with a 10-foot pole.
Sheet metal is all new, and gives Sonata a more substantial look despite somewhat controversial retro-style front fascia and grille. Flush-fitting doors and restyled exterior mirrors help quiet the ride, while horn activation switches from spoke button to center steering wheel pad.
