Sonata SGL 2.4L 4-cyl, 3.3L L

Thought I had researched this brand well before I bought it and now I am finding out I bought a five and dime engine. Will never buy a Hyundai again!

problem #1

Dec 072015

Sonata 2.4L 4 cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 156,000 miles

I just purchased this vehicle, looks great, drove great, thought I had a very good commuter car, boy was I wrong. They engine started to make noise, started to run rough, pulled over at a repair shop. He looked at it, said there was a hole in the block just behind the starter. He quoted me a repair bill of $5500.00 to replace the engine. After purchasing this vehicle, then putting another $5500.00 into the engine, I could have bought a new car. This is the first time to own a Hyundai, and probably the last time.
