  • I kept seeing commercials for the Hyundai Sonata and it's 10 year, 10,000 mile warranty, so I thought that would be a very reliable car, and the warranty would cover me until I got some more money to buy a better car

      When I wanted to buy a bigger car, I was looking for something inexpensive, yet offered a good warranty. I kept seeing commercials for the Hyundai Sonata and it’s 10 year, 10,000 mile warranty, so I thought that would be a very reliable car, and the warranty would cover me until I got some more money to buy a better car.

      Upon signing the paperwork at the dealer, I was


      informed that if you buy a used Hyundai, even a year old, the warranty is invalid.

      So my 52,000 mile car had no warranty.

      I had to spend an extra $1800 to purchase a warranty, which I later came to find out was invalid.

      My problems with the Sonata started almost immediately.

      It would try to cut off on me on the highway; the check engine light would come on ...


      • after having it serviced the day before.

        In fact, on my way home from the mechanic, it cut off again on me.

        The fixtures were a joke.

        If I went to use the turn signal, the whole knob snapped off.

        After getting it repaired, it did it again, on a different side, to my husband.

        I ended up owning the car for 12 months before calling the Salvation Army to

        get that nightmare of a car off of my hands.

        Out of the 12 months, the car worked for maybe 8 of them.

        I was out for the loan $8,000, and if I divide how much the car actually worked, I would have been better off financially if I had rented a car.

        Lesson learned, I will never buy Hyundai again.

        If I could give this car a lower rating, I would
