I've never had a more

Vehicle: 2004 Hyundai Sonata V6 4dr Sedan (2.7L 6cyl 4A)

I've had this car for about 6 years now. It has never let me down. Not long after buying it, I rear-ended an old truck that should have, in all honesty, torn things up. The car started right back up and has been running flawlessly ever since. I've never had a bad belt and, unlike my Ford, a broken a/c compressor doesn't affect engine performance. The serpentine belt started squealing a little shortly before the alternator went dead earlier this year, but I suspect a squeaky pulley rather than the belt. There is plenty of power and handles very well. I trust it to keep me and my family safe on the road, within reason.

Reliable driver

Vehicle: 2004 Hyundai Sonata V6 4dr Sedan (2.7L 6cyl 4A)

Got this vehicle from my mother 4 years ago. Has been very reliable with no major repairs required to this point. Comfort of seats is fair and interior design on base model is bland but it gets the job done.

I love this car -

by on
Vehicle: 2004 Hyundai Sonata V6 4dr Sedan (2.7L 6cyl 4A)

I can't say enough about my Sonata. It's dependable, reliable and simply a great looking car. I saw someone driving this car in 2004, walked into my credit union back inquired on this vehicle and said exactly what I wanted and I got it 2 days later. Never test drive this car, first time ever doing that when purchasing a car! Best thing I ever did and have not regrets either. I plan on buying another Hyundai but I do plan to keep my Sonata. It too had a paint chip in the door handles and a radiator replacement but overall it's an outstanding car. I have had this car 6 years now and approximately 190,000 miles. Imagine that! Longest I ever owned a car with that many miles.




My first sonata

Vehicle: 2004 Hyundai Sonata V6 4dr Sedan (2.7L 6cyl 4A)

I have a 100 mile commute to work. This is primarily driven on a Interstate. Nothing has been replaced on the car except for the air conditioner condenser, because a rock punctured the original. As of today I have 119,000 on the car and still enjoy it like it was new. My next car is going to be the Sonata Hybrid. Thanks for making a great car.

This car is super smooth at any speed. In my fifth year of driving it and would be glad to drive it another five. If it were totaled tomorrow and I had to buy another car, I would look for another '04 (maybe an '05) Sonata. Most problems were covered by the extended warranty. I'm pushing 120k, so I'm on own now. Driver's side air bag doesn't work. Service tech at the Hyundai dealer said it's caused by all the trash pushed up under the seat, that's my fault. I get a little over 20mpg. Could be better but I admit I have a heavy foot.
