I have the '99 170hp V6 GLS. When I
saw how much bigger the Sonata was than
all the other Hyundais on the showroom
floor, got in it, then found out it had
a stick (not to mention the 100k
powertrain warrantee and 20k price) I
was sold. Fun to drive, suspension
could be more firm for it's performance
capability, but all in all, nice ride.
Like hitting 120 mph in 5th
occasionally. Car likes to go fast. I
think 99/00 Body style is the best. I
would buy another Sonata, if the prices
and warrantee stay competitive, and
especially if they come up with a V8!
I think I will keep this car for as
long as it runs, continually upgrading
it... kind of like framing the 1st
dollar. Go Hyundai!
Engine, stick, sterio.
V8, firmer suspension, less weight. 6-
spd. 200 watt sterio.
