Hyundai Sonata Reliability and Durability: Pros

2013 4dr Sedan 185-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.

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 245hp 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.

6-speed shiftable automatic FWD
My experience with this car has been great across all categories with the exception of a few minor cosmetic repairs. A little better MPG would be nice though.

Cheap and weak parts. At 110,000 miles I have replaced the radiator and alternator neither of which are wear and tear parts that should be needing replacement so soon. In addition the front end of the suspension makes a clunking noise over bumps.
