2009 Hyundai Sonata Limited 3.3 V6 from North America
Never want to part with it!
Carpet replaced shortly after purchase due to separation from backing; looks like a bad batch of carpet at the factory. Dealer completed the job without issue.
Other than that, normal wear & tear, nothing unusual.
We've owned this car since it was new in 2009, and couldn't be happier. Purchased it as a demo (hence the 3300 miles at purchase) and it has been utterly reliable and comfortable.
It is my wife's car, but has racked up most of its miles on long trips of 500-1000 miles round-trip. No mechanical issues to report, and we recorded 31+ MPG on a recent 1200 mile trip from SC to northern MD through the mountains.
Seats are comfortable, ergonomics are great. Transmission shifts smoothly and quietly. The trunk is huge; so big that my 4'11" wife cannot possibly reach the back of it.
I read other reviews regarding the headlights, and folks, they're projectors. The Europeans have been using them for years without issues. Use your high beams if necessary, or slow down. I do wish the fog lights were more than decorative (i.e. had a usable forward pattern instead of lighting only 4' in front of the vehicle), but the low beams do an excellent job in fog (perhaps that sharp cut-off has a purpose?).
Can't speak to the nav system issue, because we opted for the 6 CD changer and kept our trusty Garmin.
Would I buy one again? In a heartbeat.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
