2001 Hyundai Sonata GLS 4dr Sedan (2.5L 6cyl 5M)


Review

This ebony black GLS Leather sedan has
been a very good vehicle. In 40k+ miles,
I've had a total of two days lost to
service for four nonessential in
warranty repairs, and I've spent $30 on
one prorated repair. Otherwise, the
car's been flawless.

It's great to have a car paid off with
two years left on the bumper to bumper
warranty and seven years on the
powertrain. I'll likely sell it before
either runs out, but what a deal in the
meantime!

I saved thousands by choosing this over
its competition, and I continue to save
money every month. In this case, I will
agree with Hyundai: I bought their car
and I win.


Best Features

Looks Interior comfort Comfortable ride Highway cruising manners Economy Reliability Easy to use controls Center console Durability of materials


Worst Features

Take care of the floor mat issue, and I'm happy.

2001 Hyundai Sonata GLS 4dr Sedan (2.5L 6cyl 5M)


Review

For a high mileage driver you can't
beat this deal. The car came with
everything in it, no options; (I think
that has changed) it is comfortable,
gets 30 miles to the gallon (on the
road) and is one of the peppiest cars
we have driven. We hope to keep it
for five years and will amortize the
price out at under 3500 per year
including maintenance costs.


Best Features

We like the fold down back seats....very convenient and easy to use.


Worst Features

The only thing I ever complain about is the size of the cup holder.....it won't hold a non-carbonated drink bottle!

2001 Hyundai Sonata GLS 4dr Sedan (2.5L 6cyl 5M)


Review

My second hyundai. First was "99 Accent
which was very dependable. Sonata was
bought new, July "01. Car has 61130 mi.
Battery replaced after 24 mos., Front
rotors turned--47000mi. Front rotors
and pads replaced @ 60000 mi--$ll8.00.
Other than oilchnge every 5,000mi,
repairs, bat&rotors, came to less thn
$200. Car is quiet, smooth, roomy. Many
good comments from friends on ride and
performance. Owned around 30 cars in my
life, my sonata is among the best I've
owned, Major dislike: Steering is too
light. I prefer more road feel.


Best Features

Smooth ride, room,performance


Worst Features

Longer lasting battery. Short battery life seems to be a common problem. Engineer more road feel in steerting

2001 Hyundai Sonata GLS 4dr Sedan (2.5L 6cyl 5M)


Review

This car is great! It gets up to speed
quickly which is important for merging
in California. :-) The ride is
comfortable, and the stock stereo is
pretty decent. Comes with so much more
than the Camry I was looking at, and
affected my wallet a lot less as
well! Would definitely buy another
Hyundai.


Best Features

I like the V6 engine and the great gas mileage. The average price per gallon in Riverside is a disgusting $2.30, fortunately my Sonata is not a heavy drinker.


Worst Features

Driving through very open high wind areas like Nevada, Oregon, and Idaho requires cranking up the stereo to avoid listening to the peculiar whistling sounds that the Sonata makes when the wind hits the front dead-on.

2001 Hyundai Sonata 4dr Sedan (2.4L 4cyl 5M)


Review

I was initially skeptical in buying a
Hyundai, but I'm glad that I made the
purchase. The warranty is great. I
have only had a few minor problems that
the dealer took care of with no
questions. The price was very
reasonable.


Best Features

Warranty, reliability.
