Sonata GS 4.0L

  • Automatic transmission

Yet another let down of this car that was supposed to be "all new" ! Everyone that manufactured cars for Hyundai in the 2011 year must have smoked crack all day instead of working. What a horrible year ! And, of course owners are the ones who pay the price.

The finish is coming off all 4 wheels of my 2011 Sonata 2.0t. I went to the Dealer and he said they would not be covered under warranty. Another let down......other than that it's been great car.

OVER THE PAST 45 DAYS ALL 4 WHEELS LOOK LIKE CRAP, FINISH IS COMING OFF. MAG WHEELS SUPPOSE TO BE ANYWAY..21.902. BAD STARTER SWITCH, 6 MONTHS AGO HAD TO BE TOWED AT 17,000 MILES. AT 4000 MILES HOLE APPEARED IN THE SIDE OF DRIVER SEAT, AGAIN AT 16,900 MILES COVERED UNDER WARRANTY AGAIN AT 21,000, WOULD COVER UNDER WARRANTY. FINISH IS PEELING OFF OF STEERING WHEEL BELOW WHERE YOU HOLD ON FOR STEERING 24,500. LIKE THE RIDE AND DRIVE OF THE CAR BUT WILL NEVER PURCHASE ANOTHER HYUNDAI.
