1993 Hyundai Sonata 4dr Sedan


I bought my Sonata brand new in 1994
(it was leftover stock from 1993) for
the price of a used Ford Tempo. In
other words, I got a real bargain on a
brand new car (I knew the risk I was
taking on Hyundai in the early 90s).
Ten years later, I still own the car,
and haven't spent a penny on anything
but oil, fuel, and windshield wiper
fluid. I bought the base version,
which came with standard air
conditioning (still works), tilt
steering wheel, and a good stereo. The
interior is quite roomy and the
driver's seat has a height adjustment
for short drivers.

Best Features

Remote trunk release, remote fuel door release. Electronic (automatic) seatbelts: Good for old passengers, who find it difficult to reach behind the seat and grab the belt. The lap portion is very easy to attach.

Worst Features

Fifth gear should be more of an overdrive gear. At 60 MPH, the engine turns at close to 3000 RPM, which makes for good throttle response, but isn't great on gas and doesn't seem appropriate for a family sedan.
