2006 Hyundai Sonata LX 4dr Sedan (3.3L 6cyl 5A)


Review

Good quality for the money. Many standard options that are extra on others of the same class both domestic and foreign. Cannot beat the warranty!


Favorite Features

V-6 has a lot of power. Smooth shifting transmission.


Suggested Improvements

Remote radio station changer on the wheel with the other radio controls. Softer suspension, ride can be a bit stiff.

2006 Hyundai Sonata LX 4dr Sedan (3.3L 6cyl 5A)


Review

Ilove the way it handles and holds the road. The brakes are awsome on this vehicle. The transmission is perfect it shifts up and down, like a standard shift.


Favorite Features

I love the controls on the steering wheel for the radio and cruise control.


Suggested Improvements

I would like to see them offer a power passenger seat. Radio controls for changing the stations on the steeringwheel.

2006 Hyundai Sonata LX 4dr Sedan (3.3L 6cyl 5A)


Review

Had 1999 Sonata GLS for 5 yrs. 120K Excellent vehicle w/ minor cosmetic defects, e.g., turn signal falling of by itself, visor latch doohickey breaking off, etc. & odd declarations that really didn't diminish performance, "wrong HP advertised" (advertised @ 171 was really 161 hp.) But still a quick car. Bought the '06 Sonata LX. 235 horses... interior "supersized" w/ nice leather interior, seat warmers, dual AC/heat controls, huge trunk, and pulling every bit of the horsepower to make this a top end thrill drive. Really fun ride, dependable and good gas mileage (20/30 mpg); my avg. is 28 - 29 in city traffic. W/ gas hitting $2.50/gal, great car, great performance, great value.


Favorite Features

Acceleration, interior space, driver space (TALL driver), room for kids, traction control std., cupholder MUCH better than previous Sonata.


Suggested Improvements

Can't think of any off the top of my head.

2006 Hyundai Sonata LX 4dr Sedan (3.3L 6cyl 5A)


Review

Quality seems good, excellent paint job. Annoying rear noises when gas tank is full. Auto climate control makes noise when vehicle slows and door closures makes a secondary clang noise in trunk area. Dual exhaust is not aligned evenly. Power seems good altho trans to acceleration seems slow. Correction of these issue would make a great car. Mildly disappointed.


Favorite Features

Heated seats, ESC and air bags.


Suggested Improvements

Collapsable mirrors, interior lights under dash, under hood light and get rid of seat belt chime.

Review

I did a lot of research, and test driving this time around. And I am so glad , that I chose the Hyundai Sonata. It has so much to offer, and is a great value. It really is a fun car to drive! Plenty of power, and comfort. I got the LX model, with heated leather seats, too many options to name, that you won't find with the competition, very luxurious, and comfortable. It will go head to head with the competition, any day.(Honda Accord),(Toyota Camry). If you don't believe me, just go test drive one today. It certainly isn't the Hyundai of 10 years ago, in fact, it feels like a much more expensive luxury/performance sedan. Best warranty on the market to boot!


Favorite Features

Auto lights,auto dimming rearview mirror, compass, auto climate control. outside temp display.Electronic stability control, traction control. 6 airbags. Homelink for garage door opening, Design. and Value.


Suggested Improvements

Offer XM radio with the cool stereo.
