2000 Hyundai Sonata 4 cylinder from North America
Hidden Treasure, but not for long
Nothing has gone wrong yet.
I was skeptical at first, but I had heard that Hyundai improved their cars several years ago. Evidently, that is the case. I just recently bought my Sonata in central Illinois and it was one of the few I could find.
I love the overall feel to the car. It's good size in the cabin and plenty of leg room.
The gas mileage on the 4 Cyl is better than I thought and I'm quite pleased with it.
The 4 Cyl does not possess great pickup but for someone doing highway driving like myself, it is more than adequate.
The design of the car is attractive and the paint and overall condition of the car are showroom new.
Best warranty of any used car I looked at, since I get the balance of the bumper to bumper. Great roadside assistance plan as well.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

My sonata V6 is very good and nice..the only thing is it has devloped a annoying squeek from the trunk or the back suspension.

I have had the same problem. Hyundai said it was nothing to worry about while it was under warranty. After I sold the vehicle the guy I sold it too spent about $600 to have it fixed. He also spent about $800 more dollars on the engine when the car began not to start. I didn't ask what the problem was. O by the way the hood rusted completely into around the nose area and the car only has about 70,000 miles on it now. Luckily I got rid of it just in time. Good for me bad for the guy I sold it to.
