This generation is a miss - look earlier or later for a used one. by Mapman from Sacramento on 12/09/2010. Trim: 2007 Hyundai Sonata GLS XM, Owned 1 year.
Pros: Full-featured. Lots of car for the money. Competitive styling.
Cons: The suspension is cheap and bottoms out easily, the seats have poor lumbar support and don't go back far enough (these are used by the millions as cabs worldwide and this is probably for easy backseat entry and exit but at the expense of front seat comfort) and the ride is sub-par. I am 6' 3", 210 pounds and I can't seem to ever get comfortable in the car. The dealer cost for maintenance parts and services is really high, worse than European nameplates, except remember this is a Hyundai with no foreign panache. I believe the 100K warranty was created to give original buyers some false peace of mind and to try to manipulate a better than deserved reliability reputation.
Overall review: The car is a myriad of compromises. Hyundai makes some very fine cars; the Elantra, Genesis, and Santa Fe are very strong in their categories. It seems like they were borrowing from all these cars to make the Sonata rather than try to create an entirely new vehicle for the segment. The car's build quality is okay and the interior materials, though they smell funny, appear to be good. But that's the best I can say about the car. We're the second owners so the warranty expired at 60K. It's at 63K now and I am worried about the future. I have lots of experience in this category having owned several Taurus/Sables, Accords and Camrys. This car doesn't come close to the quality of Honda or Toyota and is comparable to early 90s Fords (not an endorsement!). . I regret this purchase every time I drive this car and which now I had paid more and gone with a proven nameplate. Hyundai deserves credit for trying and the 2011 is worth a look. Pass on this generation though.
