2010 Hyundai Sonata GLS 4dr Sedan (2.4L 4cyl 5A)


Review

I had my heart set on a 2010 Kia Forte EX, but due to financing issues I got the Hyundai Sonata, and I must admit I'm completely BLOWN AWAY! The Sonata I got was a former rental so it was well taken care of and the price was amazing! I did really good going up Interstate 5, it handles very well, but can be a little shaky on tight turns. The interior is nice and has plenty of room for my daughters infant seat in the back seat, and it has a HUGE trunk. I love that it comes standard with all the bells and whistles that are optional on other brands (ie. XM radio, CD/MP3, air conditioning, power locks and windows). Overall not a bad buy. I really like my Sonata! Great car for HWY driving.


Best Features

XM radio, gas mileage, comfortable interior, roomy interior, smooth ride, large trunk, nice sounding speakers, easy acceleration, HWY handling, quiet engine.


Worst Features

Power drivers' side seat standard, trip computer standard, compass and outside temp standard, auto headlights standard, CD changer standard. Less shaky turns.

2010 Hyundai Sonata GLS 4dr Sedan (2.4L 4cyl 5A)


Review

When I purchased my 2010 Sonota I was told that a chemical odor in the car was associated with a metal protector applied to a new engine at the factory and it would burn off shortly after driving it awhile. After a year, the odor did not go away. In that year, I brought the car back to the dealer on several occasions to complain about it. The dealer acknowledged the smell was present and tried to remove the odor once by cleaning the car. They admitted they could not remove the odor. Except for odor, the car has been great (just like my previous Sonota). Unfortunately, I no longer recommend buying Hyundai cars. Hyundai does not stand behind their product after they make the sale.


Worst Features

Do not sell cars the have offensive odors!

2010 Hyundai Sonata GLS 4dr Sedan (2.4L 4cyl 5A)


Review

If you are tight on cash and need to save those $2000 but don't want to buy a second hand car. I mean $2000 could buy you 2 years of gas. I will only compare this one to 2008 Accord and 2006 Camry because i have driven them both. The driver's seat is not as firm, steering is not as nimble and car has a floaty feel to it. Suspension is not as tight. The dashboard plastic crackles once in a while. The mileage is great, controls are easy and well placed. I saved $2000 on similarly equipped Camry and accord.

2010 Hyundai Sonata GLS 4dr Sedan (2.4L 4cyl 5A)


Review

The ride on a long trip is great! I've made 2 long trips (over 2000 miles each) My first trip I averaged 34 mpg and the second trip only 32.5. On good pavement the car is very quiet at 70 mile per hour. On some pavement at that speed there is an annoying sound. In town the mileage is only 22-24. The ride is soft and comfortable both on a long trip and in the city. In the city at slower speed the car is very quiet.


Best Features

Gas mileage soft comfortable ride quietness of the ride


Worst Features

outside temp gauge

Review

It isn't often that I buy a car new off the lot. I saw this 2010 in the preowned area and inquired. It was a former rental which at first most people balk at when seen. I will say that I will never buy a used car that WASN'T a rental first. It was immaculate, like new and had 30,000 miles on it. The dealer had all the maintenance records and CARFAX report on-site. The rental company changed the oil every 3,000 miles and did all manufacturer recommended maintenance religiously. I have had the Sonata a week now and it drives wonderfully. The handling is fine for a car of its size. Also, Hyundai allows the transfer of the 10/100,000 to another owner; so I still have 30,000 miles left to go.BRAVO


Best Features

The safety features. An entire encapsulating set of airbags sealed the deal for my son and I. The stereo system was also great with the XM/CD/iPod 2.5 mm/USM jack was a great feature. Sleek and stylish, I really enjoy driving this car.


Worst Features

I can only suggest a few things. 1) Auto-headlights (standard), Power seats (driver, standard), and climate control with ext. temp (standard). These features would make the Sonata a clear and present danger to the competition.
