Long Life
My husband talked me into buying a new Hyundai in 2008, the year after he had bought his. We had driven Mercedes prior. He read all the consumer and safety reports. I took his word for it. I'm glad I did. My Hyundai is now 8 years old and still going strong! I've only had it serviced at Winn Hyundai because they take such good care of me and my car. Kudos to the car and Kudos to Winn Hyundai.

Pros
See above

Cons
None I can think of

Love my car
I have driven my car up & down the eastern coast of the U.S. so many times not not even funny. My car is reliable, dependable, easily maintained, great on gas, and just a wonderful car. I don't think I would drive anything else. When friends are looking to buy a new I always recommend the Sonata.

Pros
Great on gas
Sun-roof/moon-roof
No serious maintenance issues

Cons
Low profile ties
Not good on step inclines
Not good the snow

2008 Sonata
I love my 2008 Sonata!...... But......... I have had to have the sun visor replaced 3 times since ownership (brand new in 2008)! I hope the the later models have improved the sun visor feature as not to break! Thanks for reading!

Pros
Love my 2008 Sonata!

Cons
Need better design for sun visors! Break too often!

77,000 Miles Young
Purchased new for my much better half from Fitzgerald's in '09 -- terrific value.
Delivers excellent mileage, comfort, strong acceleration (6 cyl) ... a super car.

Pros
See above -- ride, handling, acceleration, reliability, value, etc.

Cons
Other than no jack for ear buds/cell adapter can't think of any.

Best car I have every owned. I bought my first car in 1965 from Tonkin. It was a 65 Chev Malibu SS convertable. An awesome car.
My Sonata is the best car I have ever known. Great to drive, wonderful to ride in and dependable and I have over 100,000 miles on it and it runs like new.

Pros
It's an awesome car.

Happiness and a Great Ride
My 2008 Hyundai Sonata has exceeded my expectations. I bought it new at my husbands recommendation. He had done all the Consumer Report research and had bought his in 2007. I was skeptical as I had driven the same Mercedes for 25 years. It was a good peppy ride but after 25 years needed to be replaced. My brain went "Huh? Buy a what? Well I did it! I bought the limited edition as I wanted the leather interior. I got a whole lot more: A great ride, Comfort, Speed, Peppy, economical and at service time, folks that really make me feel welcome and a bill I can live with. Thanks Winn Hyundai. See you soon.
