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
 

TrueDelta Reviews the Reliability And Durability of the 2015 Toyota Camry

2015 Toyota Camry Reliability And Durability: Pros
YearComment
2015 In some ways, it's just as important what Toyota has not changed as what they have. They body and interior might have been heavily revised, but these aren't parts prone to failure. Most of the mechanical and electronic bits weren't touched. The engines and transmission have remained the same since 2007. Direct injection, forced induction, dual-clutch automated transmissions--you still won't find these beneath the hood of a Camry. So the Camry's outstanding reliability can be expected to continue with the 2015. Except for the non-hybrid 2010, the 2006-2012 Fusion was nearly as reliable as the Camry. The redesigned 2013 has been a bit troublesome, though, and the 2014 has been about average (so neither bad nor great). The Accord was also redesigned for 2013, but has remained about as reliable as the Camry. full 2015 Toyota Camry review
