Owners may call Hyundai at 1-800-633-5151. Overall I would highly recommend this car to anyone looking for a fun ride without spending a ton of money. The Hyundai Sonata gets them right. The acceleration with the six cylinder is great, and so is the highway milage - 30 without trying to be efficient. The towing capacity has doubled to 2,000 pounds. For the record, the old Accord needed 7. The color pallet is sensible, the layout ergonomic, and the materials high-quality in both appearance and touch.
Where I live the temperatures can get over a hundred degrees for long stretches in the summer. Whereas all the others relied on fake-wood trim, the Fusion has high-gloss black plastic panels contrasting with the exceptionally coarse-grained dash and other interior panels. The Camry scores better on the hospitality checklist. The suspension lacks the muscular control that gives the Honda such a sporting feel, and it lacks the plush-carpet smoothness that eases the Camry over Michigan's broken roads. At first glance I thought the exterior look of this car was very sharp, especially the 5 spoke wheels and dual exhaust. I feel you get better reception that way.
All models feature premium levels of safety and comfort equipment as standard fare. It's the strong, silent type, which is right on target for this class of vehicles. Byte-Bite: If I was working for one of Hyundai's competitors, I'd be worried. Engine and transmission are smooth and strong. Bore x stroke measure 92 mm × 87 mm 3. Hyundai makes great quality cars. Most of the test drivers liked this car's controllability and the way they fit inside.
And when the math was finished, the new Ford had edged out the Hyundai and Toyota for second place. So the Accord is always ready for its next move, much more so than the others in this group. The steering responds politely, the accelerator takes a good poke to call up horsepower, the brakes expect your foot to travel a bit before the retardation starts in earnest, and the ride is relatively soft, smoothing the road and making it seem far away. The parting lines on molded pieces are often left visible, and the paint on plastic parts -- inside door handles, for example -- often lacks uniformity across the surface.

If you're still not convinced that Hyundai vehicles deserve your consideration, check out this model. The springs are soft enough for supple comfort, even on poor road surfaces, while the shock damping is correctly matched for good driving characteristics. As a mid-sizer, the Accord is weakest in rear-seat capacity. Although all these mid-sizers come with four-cylinder engines, manual gearboxes, and cloth interiors as standard equipment, we've moved our selections up the options lists to include V-6 engines, automatics, leather interiors, and other sybaritic pleasantries—seat heaters and steering-wheel radio controls, for example. Love my 3rd Hyundai, even better than my previous Elantras. I think it's a great car for what you pay! That we've been offered one now speaks well to the company's confidence in its product line and how far the brand has come, from a quality standpoint, in a relatively short period of time.
. So I'm going shopping for another one. The Ford, however, was the only one with a power option that moves just the seat position; backrest angle is changed with an ordinary manual lever. Bore and stroke measure 92 mm × 75. The mid-size-sedan market has two promising new four-doors. And the rear-seat accommodations are by far the best of the group, with excellent footroom for the 13s worn by one of our test drivers and no complaints up top from the staffer with the big hair. Three of the complaints allege the failure happened at highway speeds, and two of those say… Hyundai announced today that they will be sending out recall notices to the owners of 393,714 Sonata sedans sold between 2006 and 2008.
The Aezra looked nice also. The Sonata's interior is cavernous compared with those of its rivals; it has 105. We are conveniently located about 5 minutes from Orlando International Airport, perfect for out of state buyers. I have the 4 cylinder so there is not a lot of acceleration power there, but it is definitely ample. Hyundai built an all-new manufacturing plant in Montgomery, Alabama, for this 2006 Sonata.
We average mid 20s for mileage and maintenance costs are next to nothing.

I did not like the drivers seat at first, then learned how to adjust it to my back. The car is a great price and drives very well. There were complaints, however, about the high level of road noise from a variety of sources, and particularly from tire impacts. Four-cylinder Sonatas will continue to be manufactured in Korea until the Alabama plant ramps up. The four-cylinder's output also is up over the previous generation's by 15 percent.
Ford's Taurus replacement, the Fusion, had been introduced the day before, but it promptly slipped off my proverbial radar screen. It was a new design for the 2003 model year. Reliability for the previous Sonata model has been average to above average. I always emphasize results over formulae, but from a strict cost perspective, equipment like front and rear suspensions also are expensive.
