The best sedan for under $25,000
By carev on 02/04/12 17:51 PM (PST)

Vehicle

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

Review

My family has a rule that we will not spend more than $25,000 for a car--new or used. For under 25k, the Sonata 2.0t SE gives you the power of a six with the economy of a four, all of the features you could ask for (including power driver's seat, XM, bluetooth, fog lights, USB connectivity, attractive 18" wheels, etc) in a car that drives like a midsize performance (not quite "sports") sedan but has the interior room of a full-size. As an added bonus, they hold their value well and earned a five-star safety rating across the board.

Very Disappointed by 2011 Hyundai Sonata

Vehicle

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

Review

Bought this Hyundai Sonata (2011 GLS) new. Thought I would try a Hyundai since seeing all the TV ads about their quality. The Ride is hard. Radio FM tuner sound quality is marginal at best. Radio was replaced due to display fading issue(research on web for more details). Having issues with the engine pinging while accelerating. Only 19K miles on engine, and trying to get it fixed at dealer is not going well.

Low Tire Pressure
By kristinadd on 12/09/11 09:49 AM (PST)

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

Review

I bought this car in April of 2011. All through summer and now into the winter, the low tire pressure light has been coming on and I have to bring it into the dealership and have them record it since it is a leased car. They say its because of the weather getting cold but on 80 degree days, I dont believe that at all! Other than that, it is a great car, very big and spacious. Though, very EASY to hit curbs!

Overall Good Car
By mike_231 on 12/02/11 08:56 AM (PST)

Vehicle

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

Review

I've owned this car for 6 months and 7900 miles. So far, here are my impressions: Pros: Great combination of power and fuel economy, great looking body, well executed and very comfortable interior, large number of features for the price. Cons: Electric power steering doesn't have the best feel, road noise (tires) is louder than it should be, my car has the slight left pull issue that comes-and-goes with tire rotations, 18" wheels with low profile tires are very sensitive to road irregularities, too easy to scrape 18" wheels on curbs, car wash guides, etc.

Hyundai Replaced the Bad One

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

Review

See my previous reviews. Hyundai replaced the car that pulled to the left with a new car which has no problems. Actually I had to find the replacement but Hyundai was cooperative and I am very happy now. I can't go into details because of the agreement I signed but Hyundai was very good about it and I would buy another one.

disappointing exprience
By kalmanzar on 10/17/11 19:35 PM (PDT)

Vehicle

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

Review

This is my 13th car, have had toyota, ford, honda, subaru, mazda, acura, bmw and now hyundai. Have 20k mi on the car, wrote a review when I first brought it and gave it overall a seven , thought overall it was solid, major complaints where harsh ride, lack of road feel. But liked style, value, power. Now a year and a half and 20k, i give the car around a three. Ride is still way to hard, have had a lot of mechanical issues, a lot of recalls, poor service, build quality is very bad. First one of all the cars i've owned that i could not recommend.

Good Car
By kosos on 10/07/11 12:25 PM (PDT)

Vehicle

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

Review

Use: commuter Load: 3 person totaling ~650 lb, avg 6 ft Distance: ~360 Miles per week Road: NY/NJ 80% highway Comfort: Good fit, lots of room, seats could be better but strangely I (driver) feel more comfortable now than when I first bought it. Passengers have not complained. Ergonomics: Excellent. I only do not like trunk/gas release buttons. They should be lit or redesigned. Performance: Must watch your speed, car cruises at 90+. I drive hard and no body roll, under/over steer, break fatigue or other common problems. Manual is great, 3rd gear could be stronger. Entertainment: remember this is stock. I like it if you do not blast it.
