I loved the car since the day I bought it. Fun to drive and peppy. If you are a tall person (maybe over 5'8") then I would not recommend as it is shaped like a race car without a lot of head room. I am 5'3" so it was perfect. NEVER a days trouble out of it. UNITIL one morning I cranked it, let it warm up, and pulling out of my driving it just suddenly stopped. After cranking it back it had developed disease that sounded like a hammer beating a metal bucket. Towed it to the dealership and sure enough, the engine recall affected my car. Im getting a new engine. I plan on keeping the car...see what happens.
Per the Hyundai dealer in Dalton, GA the reason for our oil pressure light on was a bad oil pump that scored the main bearings on the crankshaft. The process to get to replacing the engine was a 2 out of 10 on the service meter! Between the dealer, Hyundai USA, and the 3rd party warranty company, Fidelity, I am extremely disappointed.
The ownership level by Hyundai was very poor. They passed the process of correcting the issue to Fidelity who was a 1 out 10 on the service level!
It is disappointing that a car that I like with a significant quality issue was handled the way it was.
This is my first and last Hyundai. Nissan, Toyota, Honda - here I come!
Exterior Styling, ride, leg room, trunk space.
How Hyundai provides service on their vehicles with significant quality issues.
Individual part quality.
As previous owner of a Dodge Durango I have to said the Sonata is the best. I walk in to I Love Lee Hyunday of Fayett and Ms Quiomara take good care of me. I love this car, and my family and friens fall in love whit it.
The stylist is sleek, it's quiet, spacious and confotable. Awesome Car.
