    Noisy four-cylinder engine, breathless V6 engine.

My hyundai

Vehicle: 2000 Hyundai Sonata 4dr Sedan

Well. i got my hyundai sonata from this man who said he bought it from a lady who had it for years, APPARENTLY, she didn't take care of it. I end up getting spark plugs, diff. fuel lines, fuel pump, catalytic converter and many tires. Paint is fading. Transmission is slipping. got my bushings & tie rod replaced on the passenger side, JUST A LOT. luckily i didn't have to pay for anything but the fuel pump (: STILL A LOT OF WORK. I'm ready to switch cars.

Very dependable vehicle

by on
Vehicle: 2000 Hyundai Sonata 4dr Sedan

I've had this vehicle for approximately 9 years and it has been a good value for the money. I've never had any problems with it and will definitely buy another one when the time comes. The only drawback that I can think of is the manual shift, 4 cylinder doesn't have much power. Other than that, I love the car.




A realistic evaluation

by on
Vehicle: 2000 Hyundai Sonata 4dr Sedan

We purchased this car when gas was expensive. It is very similar in size and displacements to our '99 Camry. This car is not a Camry, but is still a good solid car. A lot of the reviews of people really don't seem to understand that owning a car involves some preventative up-keep. I've had to have timing belts and brakes on both. Toyota Camry is the GOLD standard. But that isn't to say the Sonota isn't a good, solid vehicle. (It's probably not fair to compare the two. I've heard the new Sonata's are closer in feel to a Camry.) I would have no reservations buying one. The car is very similar in ergonomics, design, and power to my old '96 Accord. Thanks for reading.




The 4 cyl. needed smoother

by on
Vehicle: 2000 Hyundai Sonata 4dr Sedan

I find that my Sonata doesn't shift smoothly between gears. The car is a great value in general. I have 58000 mi. on mine and it's still going strong. The Silver color paint is peeling, which isn't too great, and I garage it every night and use it just for pleasure.




Waste money for a 35k

by on
Vehicle: 2000 Hyundai Sonata 4dr Sedan

I bought this car from a first owner, then I lost the 100k miles warranty. Rear wheel bearing, left front shaft, oxygen sensor, mass air flow sensor, tps sensor, front disc breakes worn out at 45k miles too much money to spend for a 70k miles car. Speed transmision sensor dealer said $500 plus 105 diagnostic fee. Crazy waste money. I drove this car by 20k miles and I have been spended at least 1500 dollars in parts and labor. So the fabricants are supposed to put some recalls for this car. The people who knows about cars doesn't recomend me Hyundai or kia any more. I don't understand how a company advertise 100k miles warranty for this car.




2000 hyundai sonota sub frame

by on
Vehicle: 2000 Hyundai Sonata 4dr Sedan

I bought this car with 11000 miles on it. Overall it has been pretty reliable until about 75000 miles I have had to replace all the wheel bearings. Now at 86000 miles the sub-frame is rotted from the inside out. This is the first time I have ever seen a sub frame rot on a vehicle less than 14 years old. It is a shame that Hyundai will build a car that the sub frame rots from the inside out. This is very dangerous and costly to repair.
