Bought based on reviews... VERY disappointed
By aybaker87 on
2007 Hyundai Sonata GLS 4dr Sedan (2.4L 4cyl 5M)
I bought this car used in February 2011 from a private seller with 32k miles on it. FF 2 years, I've since had to replace the headlights EIGHT times (even with the top bulbs from Advance Auto), had to replace the passenger seat due to a random airbag malfunction -- which was annoyingly expensive! --,
the paint is slowly but surely beginning to chip on the hood, the passenger door handle literally came off. One night, attempt to open the door, the handle broke off in my hand. And most recently, even having had scheduled, routine maintenance done, the engine now needs to be replaced. After everything I've dealt with, I'm buying another car instead of spending 2 grand to fix an unreliable car.
Fun to drive -- when it runs
Impressive power for a 4cyl
Tons of trunk space
very spacious interior -- roomy front AND back seat
Unreliable -- ticking time bomb for the next mechanical or body malfunction.
Expensive to continually repair whatever goes wrong next. =\
