Solid. by Dwood on 02/23/2011. Trim: 2006 Hyundai Sonata GLS, Owned 4 years.

Pros: The mileage is great. It varies greatly depending on how fast you drive. At 80+ mph on the highway i get about 28 mph, and 60-65 I get up to 35 depending how level the driving surface is (4 cyl.). Dont ask me why I tried it, but on a closed course, the car will do 120+ mph. I have a bit of a love/hate relationship with the backseat legroom. I get compliments on it all the time, but it also means I am always the one taking co-workers to lunch. I have not had one problem for 98000 miles - I change my own oil with full synthetic every 5000 - 6000 miles.
Cons: The only thing that I do not like about this car - the front cupholders. Are you kidding me? No divider? You accelerate, your cup falls over. You decelerate, your cup falls over. Always keep something in one of the cup holders to keep your used cup stable. Other than that... NO ISSUES! If a cupholder is the only complaint, then you have found a great car!
Overall review: I would recommend this car to anyone. The young 25 year old man in me wishes I had a fun fast car and this is not it. But it is not built to be that. It handles great for what it is, and even the 4 cylinder has plenty of power. I am not too thrilled with the resale value, but I also do not plan to resell it anytime soon. My only regret is that I did not get the 6 cylinder.
