Advice on buying a Hyundai Sonata Gold

By Swapnil Natu on 19 September 2009

Its good to hear that someone buying a Hyudnai Sonata Gold, but please get the Clutch Proerly checked, as the clutch work is minimum 35k & varies upto 75K which i enquired with service people( HYUNDAI).

I too got Sonata 2002, around 61K run, but the problem is the Clutch is quite tight & operates at the end play of around 1 Inch.... & as clutch cant be considered as warranty aspect, car can run further max, 15K Kms. afterwords i have to get the rectification done at any cost.

Also check all Lether interiors, as Lether interiors will cost you around 1Lakh, & u cant replace only one seat if u have to do so,
Also plz note that this vehicle will not give u good milage, Hardly 6.3Kms /L with AC in City which i have recorded till date.

CNG Kits are suitable only for Diesel Cars & for petrol cars u can put only LPG,which are good i heard ( the newly launched direct injection type) which will never harm ur engine & pick up.

Overall car is good but i would suggest you to please re think once again before purchasing as parking is the most most biggest problem, also all spares of the car are very very costly,

I took the car because the distance i travel is hardly 13 Kms ( up & down from my office to home)& i use car only 3 times a week, other times whenever i go for long trips with my family /friendz.
If ur travelling distance is more than 30 Kms per day then i suggest you to re think about some other efficient car, or think a big but Diesel car like Skoda Octavia which is as good as sonata.....else i suggest you to go with 2.7V6 model which will give u good pleasure like Mercedes Benz-S Class & milage of 4 to 5 Kms /L....
