2007 Hyundai Sonata GLS 4dr Sedan (2.4L 4cyl 5M)


Here's my story, all true.
Love the way the car looks, & performs, but that's where it all falls apart.
After about 2 weeks the drivers seat bagan to rock, & squeak, after many trips to the dealer for repairs, it now only rocks.
The seat mount plastic cover no longer stays on.
Stereo cuts out intermittently over bumps, this problem seemed to correct itself.
More steering wheel mounted radio controls would've been nice (no tune button). Appx 50k mi. the timing chain tensioner hung up, & valve inbeds into piston, nice!
Recall for this ended in '06.
Paint thin, & flakes off.
Seems like hyundai has a bit to learn about making cars, last one i'll buy I think.

Best Features

Looks great, nice merging power. Spaceous interior. Comfortable.

Worst Features

Better, more reliable engine. Redesign timeing chain tensioner lubrication system. More reliable paint that doesn't chip, bubble, & flake off.
