Wow my 2011 sonata has 51000 on it and I have not even had to change tires yet, much less brakes. Think I'd get a second opinion if I were you.Report it
I have a 2011 Sonata. I bought the car in 2010 before they were even in the showroom. I saw it at the car dealer on the lot. I fell in love with the color and the style. I am so sad to say how much I dislike this car. I only had 15,000 miles on it when I needed new tires and brakes. I don"t drive my car all over the country. The car was only 2 years old when this happened. Of course I complained about this but I got a song and dance at the dealers. They gave me some story about why I needed new brakes and tires at 15,000 miles. Then a few months later, I needed a new battery. Come on really! I was very upset at this one. My goodness, the car was only 2 years old! I have been driving a very long time, and I must say, I am a very good driver in the snow. My car drives terribly in the snow. It always has. I thought it was because it was to low to the ground. I got stuck at work the other night trying to get out of the parking lot. I was the only one who had trouble. the owner of my company had to try to get my car out. Now this man has been a racing cars since he was in his 20"s. he knows a thing or two about cars. When he got out of my car he said" that the traction control is to invasive and that it was not safe. I called the dealer and he said I can bring it in and they will check everything out, but if their is a problem like that, their is nothing they can do about it, cos that's how the car was made. I can say right now, I will never buy another Hyundai sonata as long as I live. I would never, never recommend them to anyone. It is so sad to have a car you can"t stand and can"t wait to get rid of. I have written to the company, but I never got a response. On that alone, I would never buy another car from Hyundai. People beware before you buy one, that's all I have to say.Report it
