1998 Hyundai Sonata Sedan GL 4dr Sedan


Review

ok so i bought this car used from the
credit union and 2 days later the power
windows went out. the rotors need to be
turned every 3 months whether the
brakes are brand new or not. when the
power windows mess up the locks mess up
and so on. when you lock one door while
its running the drivers side window
goes down. it has been ok while driving
on the highway but when you need a part
you have to get them from the dealer
like the power windows is dealer only
and the transmission fluid is dealer
only due to its being a hyundai

Review

No major problems. Does not let you
know you've left your lights on. This
can be a problem with weak battery that
comes with car. Tires weak on takeoff
on wet surfaces.


Best Features

Price, interior comfort


Worst Features

Chimes for lights left on, stronger battery, better tires

Review

Great experience - no mechanical or
transmission problems ever- just oil
changes. For the price like driving an
accord for half the cost


Best Features

exterior design- rides like a honda accord


Worst Features

sound proof needs improvements- this car with better tires would drive like a Passat. Too much plastic inside

Review

This car feels big and expensive. I
bought it used and spent about 1/2 of
what I would have for a new version of
a competing car (Accord, Altima, etc.).
I have spent the past few years driving
from Phoenix to LA and back and this
car has taken it like a champ - very
comfortable and safe-feeling car.

The only problems I have had are the
motors on the power windows going bad,
the power door locks lock themselves
when the weather gets warm (???) and
for the life of us, we can't get the
brakes to stop sqealing. All bearable
to have a car I can rely on and that
fits me like a glove.


Best Features

I love how solid and safe it feels. Big HUGE back seat and trunk.


Worst Features

Some of the powered features (the locks and window motors)need to be more reliable.

Review

One day some friends of of mind gave
ride in this car they had rented, it
was 98 Hyundai Sonata I new nothing
about them, but I remember getting out
of it after they had dropped me off,
thinking damn that car really feels
good, it good to, it was Mid Night
Blue with leather seat V6 in order
word Heaven. I now own that same car,
I bought it from the rental company
that owned it, it's been over a year
and as I said it just keeps on getting
better. I hear the critics say it
cheap, unreliable, and all of that
well I don't know what they are talk
about...I feel like king in such a
beatiful car. Driving really is
Believing!


Best Features

It's Styling Drives like a expensive car Four Disk Brakes Leather, Cruise Control, V6 Engine Powerful, The color (Mid Night Blue) And Five Factory Rims, yes Five not like some other companies that give you this small stupid spare.


Worst Features

They could have made the door panelling Stronger, more resistant
