2009 Hyundai Sonata Limited 4dr Sedan (2.4L 4cyl 5A)


I purchased my 2009 Sonata in August 2008 and am at 58,000 miles am on my 3rd transmission.
My car has been in the shop 6 times since purchase, 3 times for over a week.
I got a lemon!
Hyundai corporate has been horrible to work with not helping the situation one bit!
I had to search for a dealership that would provide a rental car without me having to pay.
I have contact Hyundai with each repair and have received little to no responses.
I am researching lemon law rights, but think I am out of luck unless I need one more transmission - which might happen!
This is the first and last Hyundai I will purchase!

Best Features

Body style and comfort of car

Worst Features

Just make sure the car runs properly. Customer service could be improved at the consumer affairs/corporate level. They act like it's my fault I got a lemon!
