2001 Hyundai Sonata from North America
Extremely disappointed and feel cheated. Not worth the money
Air Bag on passenger light went on. Airbags not functional.
Air conditioner went out after 8,000 miles. Condenser defect.
Passenger window does not roll up or down. Defective cable on window motor after 3 years.
Overheating problems after 5 years. Had to replace water pump.
Crankshaft Positioning Sensor went out. This was a major problem where the car would not start and required major maintenance to fix.
Have you ever heard of a car being cursed? This car is definetely skunked with lots of annoying problems. The engine has performed well however little attention was given to the design of other important components on the car. Air bags went defective after one year. Air conditioner went out after 6 months (bad condensor).Window on passenger side would not open or close (bad motor cable on window). Not to mention the open/closing switch on the drivers side window is very erratic and is in need of replacment. The biggest problem occurred when the car died on the highway after 75,000 miles of use in which the Crankshaft Positioning Sensor went out. What a major repair!
Now after 5 years this bad lemon car is having overheating problems.
Never again will I buy a Hyundai. Period!
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No
