Review of the 2005 Hyundai Sonata

  • A decent buy if you can't spend over $20,000 on a midsize sedan, but the Sonata offers no revelations in performance or interior accommodations.

    Excellent warranty, pleasant highway ride, refined V6 engine, lots of storage space.

  • Cons

    Noisy four-cylinder engine, bland interior design and materials, tight rear-seat legroom, tepid handling.

    For 2005, trim levels have been slightly revised, and an auto-dimming rearview mirror with a HomeLink remote transmitter has been added to the LX.

Had a jag

Vehicle: 2005 Hyundai Sonata GLS Special Value 4dr Sedan (2.7L 6cyl 4A)

Didn't want to spend money on gas anymore. Checked the Hyundai and it's better than the Jag, less expensive, roomier, more comfort, and practically the same extras. Almost looks like the Jag too. Gl's special value pack is a bargain.

I don't have a lot of miles, but so far I have really enjoyed the car. I traded in a 2004 Honda Accord, and have not regreted it. In fact, my old Honda is still sitting on the car lot. However, there is a faint vibration coming from behind the dash...and I cant find it. It is driving me nuts. Also the radio is probably the most annoying radio every made. Why is there a tape deck with it...can you still buy tapes? The car has been fun, it had good acceleration and makes heads turn. It's my mini- Jag. To my supprise, there are several aftermarket items for it. One last thing, it corners well, but tends to sway a little too much sometimes. I could put some anti-sway bars on or slow down....




Sold!!

Vehicle: 2005 Hyundai Sonata GLS Special Value 4dr Sedan (2.7L 6cyl 4A)

I drove out of the dealership in a beautiful bright silver 2005 Sonata for less than $16,000.00 total (WOW). It's a great mid size car for the price. Very comfortable ride, and very good looking too. I get plenty of compliments on this vehicle.




Great car!!

For a 17k dollar car, this is really worth the money. Quiet, smooth, decent power, well equipped, excellent warranty. What else do you want?
