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


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.
