Why the 2008 Hyundai Sonata?

Safety & braking

ABS, side airbags and electronic stability control are all standard, and the car scored highly on crash tests.

Price or payments

Its price was lower than comparable sedans for the features that the Sonata offers.

Discounts & incentives

There was a $3,000 cash back promotion when I bought the car.

Reliability & durability

Long warranty and above average reliability according to many sources.

Fuel economy

I have been getting around 30 mpg so far.

Why Not the 2008 Hyundai Sonata?

Brand reputation & image

Hyundai has not had a great reputation for high quality cars for most of its history.

Cargo capacity

Cargo space is fine; towing capacity is not high, but that is not my concern.

Interior styling

A little boring. Some plastic feels cheap. I think it will hold up, but it could be more stylish.

Color choices

Not many exciting exterior colors to choose from.

Audio & nav systems

Radio is not great, nav system is not available on 2008 models.
