Advice for buyers

What should I look for in a used Hyundai Sonata saloon?

The previous Sonata had bullet-proof reliability, and this version looks like being the same. So far, there are no reports of major problems to concern used buyers. That may be because any gremlins are ironed out quickly and quietly during the generous five-year manufacturer warranty. Even so, the Sonata does give the impression of being robust and long-lived, if serviced on time.

A full service history is an absolute must-have. It's vital if you want to enjoy the balance of that original warranty and you'll find it harder to resell the car without it.
