2002 Hyundai Sonata GLS V6 from North America
You get a lot for the price
I bought my 2002 Sonata GLS used with 17,000 miles.
Just recently had to replace the sub frame under the engine due to rust, but Hyundai covered it under a recall for that issue.
Just today my battery light started flickering and my windshield wipers seemed to slow down. After a few minutes the light went out, but when I got out of my car there was a real strong odor like something was burning. Actually I can't really describe it, because I have never experienced that odor before. After doing some online research, I'm thinking it might be the alternator???
Other than that, I now have almost 128,000 miles on it and have never had a major problem.
I always had SUV's in the past, and thought that going to a sedan might be better on gas and overall cost. The price of the car was definitely right, but the increase in mileage is not significant and I do not like how low I am to the ground. I will be going back to an SUV, and I will consider a Hyundai.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
