1999 Hyundai Sonata 4dr Sedan


I bought this car in August 2005 with only 40K miles. I've had it for 6 months now with no problems whatsoever. So far, it's been good, cheap, reliable transportation. Not sporty, not luxurious, and I wouldn't enjoy it on a long trip, but for my 10 mile daily commute -- it fits the bill.

Best Features

V6 engine has plenty of power. Stock speakers hold their own with my aftermarket stereo. Plenty of legroom & headroom once inside, but low entry is a challenge.

Worst Features

Better interior ergonomics. Cruise switch, wiper washer are not intuitive. Could benefit from some useable cup holders!

-1 @ "Stock speakers hold their own with my aftermarket stereo." The stock stereo is, at best, "adequate", so speaker capabilitttties aren'tt really an issue.
