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.
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.
