2010 Hyundai Sonata GLS PZEV 4dr Sedan (2.4L 4cyl 5A)
I have had this car since March of 2010, and most of the time, it is trouble free, but there are quirks that make me think of turning it in.
I commute 82 miles a day, and have 61K on the car.
Everything was fine for the first 30k miles.
Then, it developed a problem with the fuel tank where it wouldn't take gas, and this took the dealer a month to resolve.
Then, the transmission started thumping.
The dealer did a reset twice and replaced the fluid, but the thumping started again at 59K.
The dealer says they will replace the transmission if they find the condition again, but the problem is that the thumping comes and goes, and when its time to take it to the dealer, the thumping stops.
The car is pleasant looking enough, and I am still on the original brake pads.
The fuel economy is pretty good.
The power is more than adequate.
More reliable fuel system, better transmission, use of standard fluids like trans fluid and coolant.
