Not such a good car

2002 Hyundai Sonata 4dr Sedan (2.4L 4cyl 4A)
This wasn't my car, it was my mom's and I hated driving it.
Parts would wear out constantly.
At about 80k miles driving to work, the timing belt snapped and destroyed some critical engine parts.
The engine had to be torn apart and rebuilt, along with a new water pump costing almost $1200.
Later on that year, the water pump had to be replaced again, the CV joints had to be replaced, new alternator, and new spark plugs all before 90K miles.
Once it passes 100K miles, we got all sorts of weird noises such as a shrieking engine that is the worst when driving in the rain.
The ride was very uncomfortable with almost no padding in the seats.
