Hyundai Sonata 2017 Elite 2.0T

I have owned my Hyundai Sonata Elite 2017 since new. with just under 200,000km on it, with only 2 challenges along the journey. The Multimedia screen stopped working, and cost $1500 to replace. Have since found out there is a company in Keysborough which fixes them. My Turbo started making bad noises, and have had it replaced. Mainly open road and motorway driving, the economy and power has exceeded my expectations. I do make sure my car is serviced every 7,500Kms, as close as I can get to it..... Show details

Exceeds expaectations, great value

I purchased a Sonata NLine as a company car. I wanted a large sedan, not an SUV, and it was replacing a 300,000km 2004 Sonata V6. Fuel economy as I use it is exceptional, averaging 6-7l/100km. And I do occaisionally use the 315kW, but I'm primarily semi rural driving, not inner city crawl. It is a shame it cannot be fitted a towbar in Australia. Hyundai does not supply one, and there are no after market supplies either. (As at October 2022) I could import one from the USA but it may void warranty and insurance, as it would not be ADR approved. I'd prefer better hi beams for country night driving, but cannot (yet) work out how to put driving lights on without upsetting the front camera and parking sensors. Show details

Amazing car powerful lots features

But it's hard to find accessories for this model.
There is no floor mat or boot liner designed for this car.
I found a 3d floor mat which I have to cut some parts.

Awesome Car!!

This car beats some of Mercedes E-class and BMW 5 series cars easily in terms of Power, Torque, Luxury Features, Technology, Safety … and guess what with a price tag of about 50% of what you pay for German giants . Show details

If youre reading this and doing research, congratulations you have hit the jackpot

Purchased A 2016 LF3 (MY17) Premium. Woooooooowsers in my trousers people.
Have been driving a 15yr old Honda Accord Euro for eternity. Getting in the Sonata is like driving to work in a comfortable space ship. Cant recommend this car enough. I find excuses daily to drive to the shops just so I can drive the car.

Averaging 8.2 L / 100km freeway
10L in Sydney traffic
Quiet like a mouse
Fast as a shoplifter
Comfortable like a cloud. Stinking hot outside, yet I have seat coolers blowing cold air up my bum - you beauty.
After reading every online review about this car I was hesitant. Dont listen to those sooks. The car is amazing. Show details

Issues with in dash radio / satnav display

I purchased this car new in early 2016. Within 6 months I had to bring it in to the local Hyundai Service Centre as the in-car display stopped working. They ended up replacing it with a new display as it was covered by the warranty. I have just been to the service centre again (April 2019) because the display has once more stopped working. I am now being told it will need replacing again and I will have to pay for its new replacement - and its installation, - as the faulty display is outside of its 3 year warranty. NOT IMPRESSED HYUNDAI. Show details

2014 Hyundai Sonata

Best car I have ever owned and I have had a Honda Accord and a Toyota Corolla

This car is problem free. It has good pick up as a manumatic. It is a reliable car that has not let me down.

I drive about 15k per year and do the regular maintenance. It is comfortable and I enjoy taking it out, either on long rides or as a daily commuter.

I am a six footer and don't feel cramped or cut off by the windshield. I just set the cruise control and put on the cool AC and just travel down the road on ECO mode.

Sudbury Hyundai can be expensive so I bought my own brake shoes and rotors and got Canadian Tire to put them on for 500 bucks. A lot better price than the 1,200 Sudbury Hyundai quoted me.

My second Sonata so much room for tall people

This 2015 Sonata is the second Sonata I've had, Just so comfortable to drive also very economical to run overall. I'm very tall and I have so much room and not feeling cramped like i am in some other larger vehicles. A lot of features like all newer cars but i'm very impressed with car, i would recommend any model Sonata for everyone.

I have a June 2021 Sonata N Line, only 40,000 and driven by my wife who is in her 50's and just been told we need new front brake rotors and pads which seems incredibly soon. Has anyone else had an issue with this in this model?

Does the Sonata NLINE have just a single warning light for low tyre pressure , or has it got the car display showing in the centre of the instrument cluster with the 4 tyres showing and the individual pressure numbers ? Thanks Regards Peter Hall
