2001 Hyundai Sonata GLS 4dr Sedan (2.5L 6cyl 5M)
My second hyundai. First was "99 Accent
which was very dependable. Sonata was
bought new, July "01. Car has 61130 mi.
Battery replaced after 24 mos., Front
rotors turned--47000mi. Front rotors
and pads replaced @ 60000 mi--$ll8.00.
Other than oilchnge every 5,000mi,
repairs, bat&rotors, came to less thn
$200. Car is quiet, smooth, roomy. Many
good comments from friends on ride and
performance. Owned around 30 cars in my
life, my sonata is among the best I've
owned, Major dislike: Steering is too
light. I prefer more road feel.
Smooth ride, room,performance
Longer lasting battery. Short battery
life seems to be a common problem.
Engineer more road feel in steerting
