A Great Car
By Steve Dobbins on


2002 Hyundai Sonata GLS 4dr Sedan (2.7L 6cyl 5M)


103,000 mi as of 6/05. Has been extremely reliable. Looks great inside and outside. Recently had failure in power steering hose. $400.00 incl. labor for a hose? Air bag warning lite on, $1600.00 for an air bag sensor? They have to rip and send out seat because sensor is under upholstery...needs to be sent out to upholsterer. Engineering is said to be brilliant; I have a hunch from now on is where the money will really go out because of the "brilliant" engineering of a 10 foot long power steering hose, etc. P.S. When my 11 year old daughter moved the front seat forward the warning light went off. I wonder???

Best Features

Wood look interior. Side impact airbags.

Worst Features

Have to have XM radio installed. Engineer so parts are not so complicated (and expensive).
