2001 Hyundai Sonata GLS 4dr Sedan (2.5L 6cyl 5M)


Review

I bought this car used 3 months ago and I took it on a 1300 miles trip on the very next day. GLS Leather is very comfortable and roomy inside. It is also a beauty: I have had quite a few good comments from my friends. It proofed itself as very dependable vehicle in the extreme upper Michigan weather conditions. Definitely will consider buying Sonata again!


Best Features

I love almost everything about this car.


Worst Features

Although this is a family sedan I would like more sporty feeling driving this car.

2001 Hyundai Sonata GLS 4dr Sedan (2.5L 6cyl 5M)


Review

This is possibly the best car I'll ever
own. She has been totally reliable,
beautiful and fun to drive. As small
as it looks, this car was big enough to
accomodate me, my 10 cats in their
cages and their supplies for our move
from New Jersey to Florida. I'llmiss
her when I have to trade her in.


Best Features

CD player AND cassette player with the AM/FM radio. Fold down rear seat. Moonroof.


Worst Features

I would have loved to have a trunk release on the keyless entry remote.

2001 Hyundai Sonata 4dr Sedan (2.4L 4cyl 5M)


Review

I bought this car because of the price
and the warranty and those were the
reasons I liked it. Until sensor's
started going out, the airbag light was
on, rotors went bad, and I had to have
it hauled to the dealer too often for
my liking. Dealer was great, they
repaired it nicely and really stood by
the car, but it hasn't been as reliable
as I need a car to be. It's at the
dealer now. ANOTHER sensor went out at
53,000 miles. This is the last time I'm
doing this. As soon as I get it back
from the repair shop I'm trading in
before the warranty expires because
this particular car really needed the
warranty to make it worth keeping.


Best Features

I like the styling and the paint on the car was quite nice. I really liked the


Worst Features

More horsepower. The tranny is a little sluggish and hesitates sometimes before moving out. The seats were terribly uncomfortable on longer trips.

2001 Hyundai Sonata GLS 4dr Sedan (2.5L 6cyl 5M)


Review

This ebony black GLS Leather sedan has
been a very good vehicle. In 40k+ miles,
I've had a total of two days lost to
service for four nonessential in
warranty repairs, and I've spent $30 on
one prorated repair. Otherwise, the
car's been flawless.

It's great to have a car paid off with
two years left on the bumper to bumper
warranty and seven years on the
powertrain. I'll likely sell it before
either runs out, but what a deal in the
meantime!

I saved thousands by choosing this over
its competition, and I continue to save
money every month. In this case, I will
agree with Hyundai: I bought their car
and I win.

Worst Features

Take care of the floor mat issue, and I'm happy.

Review

For a high mileage driver you can't
beat this deal. The car came with
everything in it, no options; (I think
that has changed) it is comfortable,
gets 30 miles to the gallon (on the
road) and is one of the peppiest cars
we have driven. We hope to keep it
for five years and will amortize the
price out at under 3500 per year
including maintenance costs.


Best Features

We like the fold down back seats....very convenient and easy to use.


Worst Features

The only thing I ever complain about is the size of the cup holder.....it won't hold a non-carbonated drink bottle!
