2005 Hyundai Sonata Sedan GL V6 4dr Sedan (2.7L 6cyl 4A)


Review

This 2005 Hyundai Sonata was my first car and I loved riding it. Drove it many miles never did I encounter any roadside problems. This car is reliable in the purest form, it gives first time drivers a luxury experience at a low cost price, with amenities that other first car drivers do not experience (power windows, sunroof, power seats, etc). The only trouble I ran into with this car was that only a minimal amount of times the muffler would either rust out or flat out break, and the antenna that goes up and down every time the car starts. The car is great and I would recommend this to any first time driver.

2005 Hyundai Sonata Sedan GL V6 4dr Sedan (2.7L 6cyl 4A)


Review

First car. Purchased used at approximately 112k miles. Even with so many miles, an absolute smooth ride. Brakes made a loud scraping noise every morning after first starting the car but then went away. Seems the body dented somewhat easily. But not a huge problem. Very very quiet ride. Surprised, actually, at how quiet the car was. Even on the highway. Had a problem with the automatic locks not always engaging after pressing the lock/unlock button. Might have been a problem with my specific car. Owned it for only a little over a month before hitting a deer and totaling it. Everyone in the car was safe. The deer though--pretty much, it was splattered. Highly recommended.


Best Features

Smooth and quiet, safety features, very easy to drive, space in the front seat, space in the trunk, sun roof, headlights and fog lights that are both amazing, minimal maintenance.


Worst Features

Paint on door handles wears away quickly, body seems to dent easily, brakes seem to make loud scraping noises in the morning after first starting the car, automatic locks do not always engage right away (there is a delay),

Review

I truly love this car! Even though it doesn't have all the horsepower I'd like it too, it still has more than enough to get you from point A to B and everywhere in between. This vehicle is designed and styled to be luxury but without the overpricing that other dealers have. Great car! Excellent value!


Best Features

The trunk space is extraordinary and the interior space is unmatched in its class.


Worst Features

More power

2005 Hyundai Sonata Sedan GL V6 4dr Sedan (2.7L 6cyl 4A)


Review

This is the perfect car for me--not too small, not too big. The exterior is as nice as the interior. It is comfortable and gets great mileage!! The ride is smooth and very quiet. The warranty is great, I have been happy with my decision to purchase a Sonata.


Best Features

Smooth, quiet ride


Worst Features

A cup holder in the back seat would be appreciated--it is a sedan. You did think of almost everything else.

2005 Hyundai Sonata Sedan GL V6 4dr Sedan (2.7L 6cyl 4A)


Review

Not having much experience in car buying & owning at only 19 years old this car caught my eye. It has the performace needed for being a teenager. Has the confort, safety, room, & reliability as being a single parent. Out of my three cars I've owned (1994 Ford Probe, 2003 Ford Taurus, & this 2005 Hyundai Sonata) this is definitely the best. It is the most refined & the price is reasonable.


Best Features

The wood is a great feature. This shows class for the midsize sedan with a price that can not be beat.


Worst Features

My only complaint so far is the exterior design. Everything is nice except the back. It looks too plain & it drops off to no where. The space in the trunk makes up for the look.
