2006 Hyundai Sonata GLS 4dr Sedan (2.4L 4cyl 4A)


Review

All I can say is that this car had an electrical system right off the showroom floor. It has also had two engines. The first failed at less than 100,000 and the last one failed at 34,700. Support from the dealer was ok but Hyundai Motors showed nothing but contempt for us and treated us like dirt. Will never ever purchase any other Hyundai product again period. Please do yourself a favor and ask lots of questions and also talk to as many owners and research any car you purchase from these people before hand. The warranty sounds good but its a scam. They Hyundai Motors staff are cotemptable disrespectful trolls.

2006 Hyundai Sonata GLS 4dr Sedan (2.4L 4cyl 4A)


Review

We bought this car 3 years ago for our daughter. It was a one owner, well cared for car with 90K miles. It now has 105K miles and has been good to us. I had the usual 90K mile service done when we first got the car (change fluids, belts, hoses) and all has been well. While the engine may be slightly less refined than my wife's camry, the build quality and fit and finish is better. I am a car guy a really like this car. The mass air flow recently failed but this is relatively minor and the car sits outside at college day after day and this may have had something to do with it. Mileage is good and would buy the car again.


Best Features

Nice functional interior. The previous owner fitted our GLS with leather. Body style is nice and attractive in aquamarine with the upgraded alloy wheels.


Worst Features

More front seat travel. I am 6'2" and it is tight when I am driving. An aux port for ipods would have been nice. We have had a couple of minor issues with the rear door lock failing and a sticky driver's outside door handle but that's it.

2006 Hyundai Sonata GLS 4dr Sedan (2.4L 4cyl 4A)


Review

I have owned my Hyundai Sonata for 4 years. It has been a great car ever since. The only issue I had was the visor broke, but they replaced it under warranty no questions asked. I love the way it drives and it's reliability. I would definately recommend it. I currently have 98,000 miles on it and trust it will go many more miles.

Review

I have had my Sonata for 5 years now and still like the car very much. I wish it would have some of the newer features, but no big deal. Gas is a plus as well.

2006 Hyundai Sonata GLS 4dr Sedan (2.4L 4cyl 4A)


Review

Very attractive and reliable car. Have put 36K miles on it in 3 years and have been very please with overall performance. Only issues have been minor. Has excellent power for a 4- banger and gets great mileage (esp on the open road). Switch on power seat and a brake light switch have had to be replaced; other than that - nothing. Only complaint is that the car sits so low to ground that it makes changing own oil a challenge.


Best Features

like the pwr seats, mirrors, and sunroof. huge trunk.


Worst Features

some of the interior trims pieces feel cheap.
