Review of the 1997 Hyundai Sonata

  • Info is not yet available.

  • Safety
  • Pros

    Large and comfortable interior, bargain compared to Ford Taurus and Toyota Camry, interesting front styling

  • Cons

    Not so much a bargain compared to Nissan Altima and Honda Accord, interesting front styling

  • What's New for 1997

    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.

Timing distruciton

by on
Vehicle: 1997 Hyundai Sonata 4dr Sedan

You should get your timing belt changed before you hit the 65000 mark. The car has no saftey engine shut off when the timing belt goes and the engine is therefore ruined and you will need a whole new one because all of the valves get smashed together. I was only in my driveway when mine went without any warning. I turned my car on and boom the timing belt went and so did the engine. Buyer beware.
