"Powerful sedan with average looks."

I am the second owner of this 2000 Hyundai Sonata GLS. I inherited this car from Florida from a family member in 3/2015. The lack of winters that this car experienced has allowed me to really find-out how great of a car it is. The exterior has not had any corrosive damage that northern climates release onto on-road vehicles. The dash board display has RPM (revolutions per minute) meter. When I smash the fuel-accelerator with 75-90% downward-force this car almost leaps off its front wheel and I can feel the engine compartment shack-rattle-and-roll. V6 power is highly exhilarating! It is not a Lamborghini Diablo or Countach-fast getting onto the freeway. However, regular driving on city roads, this Hyundai sedan is blistering fast off a red-light stop. The original Hyundai stereo, even being 17 years old, is loud, with great treble and bass, and great for classical, rock-n-roll, easy listening, Compact Disc (CD) or AM talk radio, including sports radio. The headlights I really don't care for. If the headlamp covers where glass I would like them a LOT more. But, plastic lens covers haze-up which destroys the aesthetic appearance. The trunk space is huge. Overall, this car-machine I place a 4.15 out of a five. If her headlights were more stylish I would grace this awesome car with a 5:5 ratio or something like that!

Pros
Engine-performance. Stereo system. RPM meter. Power windows and locks. Interior lighting. Windshield washer fluid jets.

Cons
Cost of fuel, i.e., V6 GLS is exhilarating but costly if you drive for performance envelopes that particular roads allow. Headlight design (aesthetic, not function).

"Over 264,000 miles and still going strong"

I have put over 260,000 miles on my Sonata and only had to replace normal things like battery, breaks etc. The car still has the original muffler, transmission and engine. The struts and hoses lasted over 200,000 miles so the build quality, value and reliability are excellent.
