2002 Hyundai Sonata GLS 4dr Sedan (2.7L 6cyl 5M)


Review

I thought the sonata would be a great investment - I thought more bang for the buck. I was wrong. I am having consistent problems with the brakes on this car. The brake pedal locks up and renders brakes unusable. After numerous visits to the dealership - it is still not fixed. This car is not reliable, defective and unsafe. Engine is noisy overall, as well. My advice? Get a Toyota!

2002 Hyundai Sonata GLS 4dr Sedan (2.7L 6cyl 5M)


Review

Vehicle picked out by the wife to replace 93 Maxima. She liked the way it looked and handled. Passed over Nissan Altima and Toyota Camry. I love to drive it and I own Chrysler 300. Handling is great. Price is unbelievaable. Long range durablility could be an issue but bumper to bumper warrenty is unsurpassed.


Favorite Features

Interior is superior to vehicles costing much more. Excellent stereo system


Suggested Improvements

I love the exterior looks of the 2002 Sonata.

None so far.
