Speaking as an X mechanic, ”You’r-a-peein” cars SUCK! They are well
deserved of their nicknames. Fiat = Fix it again Tony! Renault= Run? No!
Citroen= Sh-t your in! Peugeot = Puke it! I was under them more than the
owners were in them! True enough, they were fun to drive(when they ran) but
people need cars that get more miles horizontally rather than vertically
.Maybe Asian cars lack style and soul But most Euro cars are like marrying
the prom queen. They look sexy but are high maintenance.

FAST TO THE JUNK YARD!

TheSnoopy1750 says:

I think Hyundai did the right thing by going more stylish. Its quite a nice
car.

I’m 5’7″ and my head was barely touching the roof when I was sitting in the
backseat…just wish there was more headroom, other than that, no
complaints 🙂

@crxdelsolsir hello~ wake up! this is 2010… please get with the times~

@maeng97: That didn’t work with my car. The system would not recognize the
iPhone. Fortunately, they included the special iPod cable with the car, the
sales lady told my wife it was in the glovebox but didn’t tell me. I have
the Infinity audio system with Nav.

Conrado Colcol says:

Very clear & very good reveiw. Best buy mid-size sedan.

LUIS AGUILAR says:

TO BE HONEST, I DIDNT BELIEVE WHAT PEOPLE AND MAGAZINES SAY ABOUT HIUNDAY
SONATA AND I DECIDED TO TEST DRIVE ONE. WHEN I FIRST CRANKED IT UP, IT WAS
SO NOISY…AND I ASKED THE GUY IF THAT WAS THE TURBO VERSION AND HE SAID IT
WAS THE REGULAT ONE…OMG. AND THE DRIVE IS NOT AS GOOD. WHY DO EVERYBODY
IS TALKING WONDERS ABOUT THIS CARS? DRIVE A CAMRY OR AN ACCORD, AND RIGHT
AWAY THEY FEEL LIKE PREMIUM CARS COMPARED TO THE SONATA. AMERICAN MAGAZINES
ARE NOT PLAYING FAIR GAME. THEY ARE LAYING PEOPLE.

Kevin Yeh says:

Why is not VW Passat for Top Pick Affordable Family Sedan?

JackandDiane1994 says:

Agreed 🙂 Glad to hear 🙂

wtrdogg20 says:

@heroheroic eehhmmm…NO WAY….buy new glasses….if you dont use…ask
you physician…

patrick jackson says:

i hate people relate styling to the mercedes but nobody compares the vk
passatt to the mercedes

VisionNinja says:

Good luck! Hope my parents do that too!

CoasterTurbo says:

got a brand new rental 2013 Sonata 2.4 for a week, drove over 1500miles
better than camry in overall, strong engine, over 30mpg for the whole trip,
the 6spd auto tranny really good but the engine noise is a bit rough when
tried to push it and the steering feel is quite awkward compare to camry
and accord, Accord is still the best in class.

PUREAAMERICAN says:

For the minimal savings at purchase and the horiffically low resale value
the only question is WHY. Back when Hyundai was 25% less than their
Japanese compeditors it was a good value, now save 1K on a 23K vs 24K car
it is no longer a great deal.

tahj677 says:

Hyundai Sonata is the new Camry…one on every corner!

waterloo123100 says:

I Agree hyundai is still shit, but dont tell somebody buy american because
they at least assemble there cars here unlike the “american cars” thats why
I choose honda and toyota cars and trucks because there reliably and
affordably while kia and hyundai are just cheaply designed.

heemoii . says:

@kevie88 lol

Winterfang says:

Nice review, it’s good to have something speak about the little important
things like how comfortable the car is.

shadow8890 says:

whats best sedan toyota or nissan?

drsnowmon says:

I own Toyota Camry and it’s simply a boring car, don’t buy it.

alphazoom says:

Well, the 2013 sounds awesome. Has great acceleration. I only think the OEM
tires are the biggest weak point. Also…no hand brake, lol. It uses the
old brake you use with your foot. I have not been on the highway with it
but in town it’s fun and brisk to drive. Cornering is not as good as I
would like, but it’s a big car compared to my 2007 Impreza that I can toss
around with its AWD. I think I’d take the 3.6 or 2.5 turbo GT Legacy
instead but it’s alot more.

jexicon says:

@keunsoo2000 Lol I would get KIA k5. German design at a Kia Price.

ConceptVBS says:

Hyundai truly made a breakthrough car for its brand. This car will change
the way people think about Hyundai forever. Sales are already reflecting
that as the Alabama plant is going into overdrive mode with people working
two 10 hour shifts round the clock just to keep up with demand.

GRECO OLIVERA says:

este auto tiene estilo bonito pero es HYUNDAI es asquerosa esta marca de
auto es una marca barata y solo le dan aspecto bonito pero son una mierda
floja bahhhhh

Brian D says:

She says it is a “2011”?????

gtwjr66 says:

drove the 2.0t what a blast to drive ,hard to believe u can get that much
power out of a 4 banger,handled good plenty of room,better price than the
kia turbo with the 7k markup our dealer has here in nashville tn,.the
sonata was still showing 34mpg even after we were driving it like we stole
it,going back at end of year to get one,

MOONiE2k6 says:

The SUBARU is a total knock off car. It literally steals the rear from
Lexus and Interior from BMW. There is no uniqueness with the Legacy.
Hyundai on the other hand did a fine job with the new Sonata. It’s a
winner.

Travis Smith says:

I have had a grey sonata SE for 3 months now and I’m proud to say I made
the perfect choice. The altima disintegrates after 50k. The camry is
boring. The accord is outdated. The american choices are… shit. I love my
car and I can’t wait until 10 years from now when I can start tatiana up
without a warranty.

Sung Hong says:

Does every other phrase have to end in an inflecTION? Like every thing is a
quesTION?

nick mark says:

only if morons continue to support a foreign economy! buy american!

Winterfang says:

@MT323able I have an old mitsubishi mirage from 94 and I’m not a retard in
the slightest. I just couldn’t afford anything better at the time because
I’m still fairly young and have a part time job. I want this car so bad now
=(

charieshane says:

i don’t give a shit to apple’s ipod or anything for that matter. in fact,
i’d prefer to buy a car that doesn’t have it.
