2006 Hyundai Sonata LX V6 FWD Plush Ride not Firm
By mogulprinceton on


2006 Hyundai Sonata LX 4dr Sedan (3.3L 6cyl 5A)


Lets make something clear the 2006-2010 Hyundai Sonata's are not sports cars, its more of a luxury car. It has a very smooth plush ride but the suspension is the worst. It's not a good car to cut corners fast in at all. A lot of body roll. It seems as if when taking off from a red light to a green light at full throttle the front wheels can't really handle the power the engine is giving off so it makes the wheels burn rubber on the pavement which I hate. The ESC kicks in very quick when on wet or slippy roads. I was driving and turned a left at a 15 degree angle at 20mph and the ESC did its job even though I didnt need it to save me at that time. It should have daytime running lights.

Best Features

The streeing is great, exterior styling is awesome, leather seats are nice, sound system sounds banging, 17 inch alloy rims look attractive

Worst Features

Suspension needs firming its to plush

One thing we can make clear is that Sonata is no where close to luxury car. Especially 06-10 models. Its econo box at best.
