Catalytic converter problems
By dartman7 on


2005 Hyundai Sonata GL 4dr Sedan (2.4L 4cyl 4A)


I bought a new Kia Sephia and had bad rotors after 2 years.
Then, after 79000 miles, it had a bad front catalytic converter.
I thought it might be a fluke, so I decided to buy a new 2005 Sonata, even though they're made by the same company.
After 2 years the rotors went bad and warped.
Then, 5 1/2 years and 63000 miles, the front catalytic converter went bad.
I will not buy any Kia or Hyundai again, no matter how good of a deal it may be.
