2011 Hyundai Sonata Sedan GLS 4dr Sedan (2.4L 4cyl 6M)


Review

Besides the countless amount of recalls. Two weeks ago driving in the highway the car engine seized no warning signs at all. Thank goodness i was able to get the car off to the side w 2 children in the car. The warranty doesn't cover it because I'm the 2nd owner. Which is frustrating bc the internet is full of the same compliant. Damn even the mechanic said it was the 4th one he seen in a month same issue. Obviously its a defect Hyundai should stand up and help their customers. Car is sitting at dealers and I still owe 2 more years

All you need to type into Google is 2011 or 2012 Hyundai Sonata engine seizure and see all the complaints and class action lawsuits! DO NOT BUY THIS CAR or you will be sorry.

2011 Hyundai Sonata Sedan SE 4dr Sedan (2.4L 4cyl 6A)


Review

Hyundai makes absolute junk! I have a 2011 Sonata where the engine completely failed at 61,000 miles with ZERO warning. A quick Google search let me know I wasn't the only sucker that got stuck with one of the worst engines since the Internal Combustion engine was developed. Let the Buyer beware! Buy this heap at your own risk. You will regret it. I hope the company goes bankrupt.

Review

I can't say enough about this car. It has the style I want in a limited edition and the class I expect. I have 45,000 miles on it now and haven't had a single problem. It drives so smoothly and is quiet even on the interstate. I wish the newer models were as sharp looking as this and I would definitely trade it in. My car payment is worth every penny on this vehicle.

2011 Hyundai Sonata Sedan SE 4dr Sedan (2.0L 4cyl Turbo 6A)


Review

My first Hyundai, 43000 miles and its business as usual. No complaints, no problems. I service & maintain the car at Hyundai's recommended intervals at the dealer. So far my Sonata 2.0T has been fast and reliable. I average around 24 mpg. I love the nav and all the gizmos. Happy!


Best Features

My favorite features are the large trunk, the power of 274hp, the Nav, the sound system and the steering audio controls..


Worst Features

.., heated seats should be standard equipment.
