1996 Hyundai Sonata GL from North America


This car is GREAT!



Need a new battery soon.

General Comments:

Car's room is so comfortable for 5'11 tall men like me.

Gas mpg is okay if you're not driving too much like me.

This car's engine can take anything like hard driving and high speed for a long time.

Taking care of this car is most important like the car's previous owner did. That's why this car has 91500 miles.

I will keep this car until it shuts down and won't start when I fix it.

1996 Hyundai Sonata GLS 2.0L 16v from South Africa


The car does not make sense


Within the first month the Altenator packed up.

Then the battery packed up.

Then the gearbox packed up. The car stood for 2 months because of parts that is not locally obtainable.

Then the powerstearing pump packed up.

General Comments:

It is a very stilish car with lots of features.

The car is not a reliable car.

1996 Hyundai Sonata 4 cylinder. from North America


So much bang for the buck!!


Nothing has went wrong with this vehicle and it is driven hard every day. 210 miles per day to and from work at 75 mph average speed. The timing belt had just been replaced when we purchased it. I would assume maintenance is an important factor in the reliability of the vehicle.

General Comments:

This car is awesome for the price that was paid for it.

Has good pickup and speed for a 4 cylinder.

My husband is 6'3" and 250lbs. and is the one who drives it everyday. Other than wishing it had cruise control he is very comfortable in it.

The back seat is extremely comfortable and roomy for whatever size person is riding.
