2007 Hyundai Sonata GLS 4dr Sedan (2.4L 4cyl 5M)


To start the previous automobile was a 1997 Buick Park Avenue Ultra, 190k trouble free miles, tranny went. Too pricey to replace with Lucerne. Nearly entire family drives Hyundai's now. Bought Sonata. Transmission: Wish it had a "winter" mode, button to start in 2nd gear... Feel fifth could be leaner. Excellent acceleration, smooth and quiet, nicely laid out with high enough quality feel and look. Have near 60k, had one mechanical issue and dealership has been great. Niggling, but access to high mount stop lamp bulb is crazy, tires have worn out very quickly(not the car's fault)... Have not had an alignment and I live in Buffalo, which amazes me.

Best Features

There is nothing really extraordinary in the equipment... Did want satellite radio, would not drive a sedan w/spoiler on Ultimate, went on vacation the day after buying it sat in garage for three weeks... When I got back from holiday all Hyundai's came with sat radio.... And, no way to add sat radio without aftermarket schlock glued to dash...

Worst Features

Winter mode (2nd gear from stop) for trans, or an AWD system... I live in Buffalo and appreciate the value of AWD... But, also realize the case against from the manufacturers perspective.... Legacy and Fusion are only comp I can think of with AWD. Improvements I would like are in the first portion.
