This is our second sonata and both vehicles have performed very well. No major problems with either car. The cars get great mileage and are well worth the price. Only 2 drawbacks that I can mention. The first is that the ride is not exactly smooth. That being said, it isn't bumpy either. We changed the tires out at 60,000 miles and the ride became smoother, but still not as smooth as I would have hoped. Understand the later years have solved this trouble though with a new suspension system. Only other issue (and it is not related to the car directly) is that the price for maintenance varies way too much among different Hyundai dealers. Some charge way too much for oil and tire rotations while others are more in line with what you would expect.
