Hyundai's step-up of reliability is apparent in used last-gen Sonatas
A look beneath the car on a hoist for signs of rust or leaks isn’t a bad idea, either.

In general, the reliability history of the Sonata could look a lot worse. A few owners online have reported ‘lemons’ which experience far higher incidences of trouble than the norm. To keep yourself from winding up with one such model, scrutinize the vehicles operation heavily, note any unwelcomed sounds or sensations, and inspect service records to ensure all maintenance is up to date.

The Sonata attracts scores of shoppers with its value-based pricing, nice-looking body and promise of lengthy warranty coverage.

A well maintained fourth-generation Sonata should make a good, affordable used buy-- especially given the relatively low resale values and decent-looking reliability history.
