Ihad my sonata belts( plural) changed today by an excellent mech and it
required 3 1/2 hrs.using speacial tools! Still he said it was better then
some cars! I'm still getting me a retro car with manual transmission and
rear wheek drive that I can control some of my repair cost, Ilike my
Sonata and have taken good care of it but I'm going to let it rest a
Re Matt; My sonata has been one of the most dependable cars, not the best
but close after owning around 45 cars and trucks, in my 70+ years.I bought
a new mustang in 1966 drove it 6 years with a point condenser and plug
change.1984 Dodge 4cyclinder 5 speed caravan I wish I had back, no trouble
except for a coil 4 years.a 1951 chevrolet got near new drove 6 years no
truoble.It's like they say if you own two pair of shoes and you wear one
pair one day and the other pair the next day they last longer.(a No
brainer!)In other words if my Hyundai fuel pump goes tomorrow and I don't
have $350.00 bucks at the time I will drive my retro with fuel pump of
$20.00 _ thanks
Dear Matt, Not nessacerly true, I have a 75 year old ford setting next to
the hundayia in same garage with 53000 miles on it that does not show its
age like some of the new cars, has no rust or dings!!
I was thinking more of rubber and plastic parts, etc. Now, I realize
that when you go back 75 years, the plastic was steel or wool or some
such material! However, I believe even the Model T had rubber tires and
other rubber parts that deteriorate over time from UV, ozone, etc.
