2002 Hyundai Sonata GLS 2.0
A good car - I would recommend it
Changed the front dampers at 100k.
Changes the front suspension bushing at 110k.
I've had the car for 3 years now (bought used) - no major problems. I love the large interior space (I'm 6"2').
Interior fit and finish is acceptable for a car of this price. The engine can be pretty asthmatic at times, but it's sweet sounding.
Shiftronic gear change is really very smooth.
Road holding is fair, but it has a fair bit of front end diving motion on uneven roads.
Overall I'm pretty happy with this car, but I'm not sure I'd buy the new model because they cost the same as Honda Accord, which I think is a better buy - all things being equal.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Don't Know

The Sonata is still significantly less cost over hear in the UK and also in the USA. I have ordered the Sonata having test driven both the Sonata and the Accord. I thought the Sonata was more luxurious. The ride in the Accord seemed harsh and this tended to make the car seem smaller than it actually was.
