#192 of 206 Hello from a new owner
Dec 21, 2007 (1:44 pm)
Hi, my name is Chris and I just purchased a 2006 Sonata GLS V6 with about 20K on the odometer. I think it was an Enterprise rental car as the dealer (Gartner Hyundai in Aurora, IL) had quite a few in different colors. Mine has a moon roof, premium sound system, etc. and I got it for $14,200 plus tax..seemed like a pretty good deal. I like the way it runs so smooth and is comfortable and has many great features (I like the auto headlights as my battery on my last car conked out one night and my Dad then decided to get rid of my 1994 Nissan Altima GXE with 106K miles on it). Hope to correspond with many of you in the future.

Good luck with you new car.
I have the previous generation ('05) bought in April '05 and now have a little over 18,000 miles. Not one problem with the car, just routine maintenance.
My small business bought an '07 SE for my brother last February. Again, no problems. I don't know how many miles on that car, but nothing had been done except oil changes.
If your experience is like ours, I'm sure you will be pleased for a long time.

Welcome to the club. First thing you should do is ask your Hyundai service dept to pull the VIN and tell you what if anything has been done to your car. I purchased a Hertz rental unit last year and I love it.

The dealer gave me a copy of the Carfax report on my car and there was not mention of any accident or other problem.

It sure would be nice if I could activate my automatic door locks without having to go back to the dealer and maybe pay more to have it done...I would not think twice if the car were brand new but I purchased it used with 20K on the clock.

I also purchased with a few thousands miles, and went to a dealer that I did not purchase from. The dealer did mine without charge in minutes while I was in for other service. I really like the feature.

I'm Pedro and I recently purchased a 2008 Sonata V6 Limited Powder Wht Pearl w/ the moonroof pkg. I've owned it a month and very happy that I picked this over the '08 Camry or Altima. Not as techologically advanced as the other two but man you can't beat the $$ saved (comparably equipt) and the quality and feel is the same the other two.
