Why buy Honda or Toyota?
By Mark C. on
2008 Hyundai Sonata Limited 4dr Sedan (2.4L 4cyl 4A)
Short and simple... This car is outstanding. I may not have scored it very high in comparison to other reviews, but I'm rating it on a scale in comparison to other cars I've owned. I have highly recommended this car to others! I purchased it new for 6k less than a 4 cylinder accord ex-l. It is quieter than our acura tl and rides much more comfortable - especially on long trips. No rattles or issues whatsoever. The 4 cylinder is fairly slow but I bought it for the gas mileage. I can get right at 30 mpg if I keep it under 70 mph. I drive mostly interstate commute. (I check it at the pump and not just by the computer.)
Ride and comfort. Quiet!!! Gas mileage. Stereo is really good for this price range. Don't expect the handling of the Accord but in reality all I want is a good quite and comfortable ride.
Hankook tires had to be road forced to get them to balance. Switches and dials are backwards in comparison to most cars, which took some getting used too.
