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.

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.

6-speed shiftable automatic FWD
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.
2012 4dr Sedan turbocharged 274hp 2.0L I4
6-speed shiftable automatic FWD
This car is not as reliable as japanese counterparts. Many isues since I bought car on 2011. Mainly A/C, Panroramic roof, and suspension problems. Hyundai could also do much better into training personnel to repair cars without so many visits to dealer. Seems not enough training into is put into repairing their products. I do not recommend this car (Sonata 2.0T) to anyone, since there are many other choices with better reliability and better service. I have owned: Lexus (best), Honda, Toyota. All these cars where much better in terms of reliability.
2011 4dr Sedan 200-horsepower 2.4L I4
6-speed shiftable automatic FWD
5/60,000 bumper to bumper warrantee 10/100,000 - (for me, I got LIFETIME!!) drive train warranty
