Very Good First Car
By blackboxmike on


2005 Hyundai Sonata GL V6 4dr Sedan (2.7L 6cyl 4A)


First car. Purchased used at approximately 112k miles. Even with so many miles, an absolute smooth ride. Brakes made a loud scraping noise every morning after first starting the car but then went away. Seems the body dented somewhat easily. But not a huge problem. Very very quiet ride. Surprised, actually, at how quiet the car was. Even on the highway. Had a problem with the automatic locks not always engaging after pressing the lock/unlock button. Might have been a problem with my specific car. Owned it for only a little over a month before hitting a deer and totaling it. Everyone in the car was safe. The deer though--pretty much, it was splattered. Highly recommended.

Best Features

Smooth and quiet, safety features, very easy to drive, space in the front seat, space in the trunk, sun roof, headlights and fog lights that are both amazing, minimal maintenance.

Worst Features

Paint on door handles wears away quickly, body seems to dent easily, brakes seem to make loud scraping noises in the morning after first starting the car, automatic locks do not always engage right away (there is a delay),
