What used Hyundai Sonata saloon will I get for my budget?

How much does it cost to run a Hyundai Sonata saloon?

For the age of car you're getting and the amount of kit, the Sonata looks cheap. However, take care not to stump up too much for a nearly new car because the Sonata depreciates rapidly in its early life.

Servicing bills are steep - you're looking at the kind of money it takes to maintain a BMW 5 Series and a big chunk more than for a Ford Mondeo. Still, the remainder of the original five-year warranty should cover any reliability issues. If not, Hyundais tend to be cheap to fix, according to Warranty Direct.
