You see a used Hyundai Sonata for sale, but you're not sure if this is the right car for you. If you plan to buy a used Hyundai Sonata--or any car, for that matter--it is important to first gather as much information about the car as possible.
The Hyundai Sonata is a relatively young car, having only debuted in 2006. At that time, three trim levels were offered: GL, GLS and LX. In 2007, the SE model debuted. This was a sportier model, and came equipped with features such as fog lights and 17-inch alloy wheels. The Hyundai did then, and still does, come in either manual or automatic transmission. In 2008, the four-cylinder became standard on all trim levels. The V6 became optional, and more standard features added to the SE trims.
2009 was a big year for the Sonata. A high end interior was installed, and the engine was improved. A navigation system was now an option as well. Overall, however, a Sonata is not considered one of the top choices for used car buyers. Sonatas come with an attractive price tag, but do not hold up well next to competitors in its class. The extended Hyundai waranty can help with some of the risk, however. And for people who do not drive very often, the Sonata can be a choice to consider. Also, the Sonata does get good gas mileage. This an an attractive feature to all buyers. Be sure to do your homework to determine if the used Sonata you have your eye on is a sound choice for you.
