Hyundai Sonata Reliability

You won't find Hyundai Sonata reliability information like this anywhere else. Actual repair frequencies, not just vague dots. So you can tell how much the Hyundai Sonata truly differs from competing car models in reliability.

These stats are promptly updated four times a year, to much more closely track Hyundai Sonata reliability as the cars age. Others tell you how reliable the Hyundai Sonata was a year ago, when the cars were a year younger and had 12,000 fewer miles on them. Only TrueDelta tells you how reliable the Hyundai Sonata has been recently.

2015 Hyundai Sonata Reliability And Durability: Pros
YearBody/PowertrainComment
2013 4dr Sedan 198-horsepower 2.4L I4
6-speed shiftable automatic FWD
So far the car has been great. I had a 2011 Sonata (which is the identical car) and put over 90,000km on it and then traded for the exact same car (a 2013) which now has 36000km. I have had no warrantee work done the either vehicle. full 2013 Hyundai Sonata review

I have owned several new cars in my life - the 2013 Sonata is the first car with Zero issues - zip zero zilch - in the first year of ownership. It just works perfectly each and every time. full 2013 Hyundai Sonata review
