2008 Hyundai Sonata GLX 2.6 4 cylinder from North America
Could be much better
Grab handles in ceiling have all come out and had to be replaced.
Rear brakes needed replaced at 45,000 miles.
AC compressor seized at 60,000 miles.
Serpentine belt wore out at 50,000 miles.
Belt tensioner needed replacement at 65,000 miles.
Transmission has slipped off and on since we bought it. Now it sticks in 2nd or third when pulling out of intersections, which makes the motor lug and have no power.
Engine rattles and shakes with all sorts of noise at idle when the AC is on, and has no power.
Engine will not accelerate for up to 15 seconds when the outside temp is over 90F from a stop.
Door weatherstrips worn through before 50,000 miles.
Sun visor decided not to stay up after 70k miles.
Overall, the car is fairly quiet and impressive for a four cylinder, but we've had lots of problems with it, and the dealer tells us there's nothing wrong.
The mileage is not really better than the Regal's 3100 V6.
The car handles funny over hills and curves.
The brakes are easy to change, however the dealer tried to tell us nothing was wrong when the inboard rear pads were down to the rivets.
The hard steering wheel hurts our hands, and on a long drive, your backside is going to be very sore due to the hard seats.
The car has otherwise been good, and roomy, and I'm wondering just how much of the troubles we have is due to the dealership and not the car.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Don't Know
