Sonata 6-cyl

I was driving home just like everyday from work. All of a sudden when I got off the high way it felt like my car was an airplane trying to take off.. well it turns out I have a bad motor. There were no signs no nothing. I could have been in a worst place. I do not have any where near the mileage that I should for my motor to just go.

Sonata 4-cyl

  • 0 miles
2005 Hyundai Sonata, engine in this car was meant to be in the elantra which is a much smaller and lighter car, but when put 4 cylinder engine in a Sonata which is a heaver and larger car, even though engine operates to the spec, other problems are evident which the dealer and the manufacturer failed to tell the consumer, now this car idles so bad it is worse than a truck when car is in drive and stopped at light etc.
