I had a 2001 Hyundai Elantra GLS 5 speed before. Wow what a step up! I
liked my Elantra but the quality level of the new Sonata is vastly
higher. The V6 is amazing & I prefer it in the looks department to the
Accord (which I was comparing it against as a former Honda Accord owner
at one point). I'm definitely a believer that the Japanese have some
real competition coming their way over the next few years. They aren't
the only game in town anymore!
