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


Review

I bought my 2006 Sonata LX in April of 2007. It had about 3,000 miles on it. Since then I've driven it nearly 35,000 miles. This car has performed well and has had very minimal problems. The ride is great and the acceleration is more than adequate. The only service I have done to it besides regular maintenance was: power mirror replacement(under warr.), brake light sensor (under warr.), passenger sun visor broke(under warr.). I also had to replace some air valve in the engine due to stink bugs crawling up inside it...ugh. Thats nothing against the car tho. Overall, I love this car and it's been very reliable. Would definately consider buying again!!


Best Features

This car looks sharp in the LX package with the 17" rims and the stainless dual exhaust and chrome door handles! The in dash 6 CD changer with the premium sound system is good! Clear sound and great bass! Large trunk! The V-6 is very peppy with all the power to do a quick pass when you want it.


Worst Features

The car should have an mp3 audio input jack. Power passenger seat would be nice also. The steering wheel has volume controls but not track fwd. Maybe these options have been added in more recent models. They're not big issues but would make nice improvements.

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


Review

With 5 years and 50,000 mi on my Sonata LX, I couldn't be happier. Only repair has been a sensor, under warranty. Good performance, good handling for a family-type sedan, comfortable. No problem with mileage - 19 around town, 27 highway.


Best Features

Performance. Audio system (premium)


Worst Features

A bit of suspension improvement

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


Review

After 58000 miles, it has turned out ot be a great investment. I looked at Lexus, Audi, Volvo and Nissan and found most of the same features and better power for over 10,000 less (if buying used, beat the depreciation). Perfect reliability. Only two complaints. The visor broke and won't stay in the back position and It would be nice to have a greater range of adjustability in the power seat. I will definitely buy again. My wife only averages about 21-23 MPG but the price difference is worth it.


Best Features

Power, features, Looks, Size, Warranty and safety.


Worst Features

Greater adjustability in seats, better mileage.

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


Review

My 2nd sonata. Only problems have been a dead windshield washer pump and some doorlock issues, both addressed by dealer. This car is a great value, & Hyundai is a great story - they appear to be making quality vehicles at reasonable prices. Still, I enjoy our 99 e320 more, but no complaints on the brand or dealer.


Best Features

Styling, power even at highway speed, quiet ride, trunk is huge - with back seat down can fit 2 mountain bikes inside!


Worst Features

Front seat too short and not comfortable; stereo adequate but its no Boze;
