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


I bought this car because of the price
and the warranty and those were the
reasons I liked it. Until sensor's
started going out, the airbag light was
on, rotors went bad, and I had to have
it hauled to the dealer too often for
my liking. Dealer was great, they
repaired it nicely and really stood by
the car, but it hasn't been as reliable
as I need a car to be. It's at the
dealer now. ANOTHER sensor went out at
53,000 miles. This is the last time I'm
doing this. As soon as I get it back
from the repair shop I'm trading in
before the warranty expires because
this particular car really needed the
warranty to make it worth keeping.

Best Features

I like the styling and the paint on the car was quite nice. I really liked the

Worst Features

More horsepower. The tranny is a little sluggish and hesitates sometimes before moving out. The seats were terribly uncomfortable on longer trips.
