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


This midsize sedan is highly underrated due to the earlier history of Hyundai automobiles. I've owned 2 Chevrolets, 2 Plymouths, 1 Rambler, 1 Dodge, 1 Mustang, 2 Pontiacs, 3 Buicks, 1 VW, and 3 Oldsmobiles. My company cars have included 4 Chevrolets, 2 Fords, and an Oldsmobile. My Hyundai Sonata LX V6 is as good or better than any of the new cars mentioned above, and at a fraction of the price. Sonata has been a well kept secret, but the cat is out of the bag. Like the ad says, "Drive it and you'll buy it!"

Best Features

Smooth-running engine; good visibilty; safety features; driver-friendly interior; favorably deceptive interior space; roomy trunk; outstanding interior instrument lighting; and "sport car" handling quality.

Worst Features

Add a sliding sun-glare shield between rearview mirror and sun visors.
