Haven't seen very many 2009 models available. This is a good looking,reliable and comfortable car with lot's of leg room,trunk room,great safety features and good gas mileage too. Owned this car for 10yrs and it has been great.

Great Car, Great Value

I never thought that I would buy a Hyundai. I spent six weeks looking for a 5-door econobox to get better mileage on my long commute. I looked at the Honda Fit, Pontiac Vibe, Toyota Matrix, Mazda 3, etc. I wanted a small car that would carry cargo. So why would I end up with a sedan. I bought the Sonata because it was a great car and a great value. It also gets great mileage (38 mpg on the Interstate at 60 mph). I wanted the four-cylinder to get better mileage. What I didn’t expect was great performance. I also didn’t expect to have a luxury car with almost all the options I could think of for such a low price. If you buy a Sonata, you'll be happy – guaranteed (10 years/100000 miles happy).

New Car that is horrible

I have had my Sonata since May 09 and it has been towed 4 times. The first time the day after I bought it would not start. Second day after they fixed it would not start. Third time about 3 weeks later I was driving for about 15 minutes and the car died would not start back up. The fourth time 3.5 months later problem with transmission put it in Drive and it will not go any where. I asked for my money back and they said no. So I have a brand new car that is not reliable. Stress when driving always fear that you will break down.

I bought this car certified from dealer with 4800 miles on it after someone returned it for a genesis. It was a hurried purchase as my ford taurus was totaled in an accident. But happily this is the best car I have ever owned. It is not uncommon to get 35-38 mpg on the freeway and I usually am traveling 75-85 mph, a little bit of a lead foot I’m afraid. I do maintain the car religiously, and have used synthetic oil since the 150,000 mile mark. I have not had any major repairs. I have found the best tires to be the same as issued when new. The ABS breaking system has worked as expected in a couple of near misses. The navigator was a disappointment as it went out after 3 years. I wouldn’t spend money on a new one as many apps work just as well with more convenience. The interior has held up very well. Exterior is also in excellent shape. I am dreading the day this car dies because it is a comfortable, reliable old friend.

Have put over 17K miles in less then 9 mos and she still rides like a dream. Not ONE issue in any area that had to be fixed under warranty so far. The car rides as nice and quiet as my friends Lexus 350. Great looking car also. Handles well in the snow with just the 2 wheel drive. Whenever one of my friends rides in the car for the first time they almost always ask what kind of car it is and comment on how well it rides and feels. Priced and tested Honda Accord, Nissan Altima, Toyota Camry and this is by far the BEST value. The 100k warranty isn't bad also. This is the FIRST car with a sun/moon roof in which I can fit, being 6-5. and I still have plenty of head and leg room.
