Buyer Beware
By atmyheels on


2011 Hyundai Sonata GLS 4dr Sedan (2.4L 4cyl 6A)


This car has been a huge disappointment: it looks sharp but is not mechanically sound.

I purchased the car certified pre-owned just over a year ago with under 30K on the odometer.
It has been a series of unending problems ever since: all interior windows must be cleaned every 3 to 4 weeks with rubbing alcohol to remove a greasy residue that continually builds up (dealer does not know the cause), the interior smells similar to a wet dog when it rains, the battery was replaced at 35K yet still occasionally dies, both rear tail light assemblies failed causing the tail lights to stop working, and several rattles developed in the dashboard.
This is in addition to two recalls.

Best Features

Blue tooth (when it works).

Worst Features

Lifetime bumper-to-bumper warranty.
