Vehicle Summary

Hyundai needs the Sonata. It's the automaker's best-selling vehicle by a large margin, which is the case for most manufacturers' mid-size sedans. After Hyundai redesigned the Sonata, we named it an All-Star. We said that the Sonata had gone from an "utterly mediocre car from what had been an utterly mediocre carmaker" to a "game changer." We stand by that statement -- for 2011. Now the field has changed so much -- with all-new sedans from automakers like Ford, Honda, and Nissan -- that the Sonata is playing catch-up to some of the best sedans on sale today, so Hyundai has updated the Sonata for 2014. The pack of mid-size sedans is constantly evolving and becoming more competitive. The Sonata's short-lived stay toward the top of the mid-size pack isn't surprising.


The Hyundai Sonata shows off just how good Hyundai can be. We still like a lot of things about the model, as we did when the new Sonata debuted a few years ago. But since mid-size sedans live in dog years, the Sonata is already feeling long in the tooth, and we like aspects of newer competitors more. The Mazda 6 has better bodywork, the Honda Accord has better engines, and the Volkswagen Passat has a cleaner interior. That said, the Sonata is well packaged, affordable, and interesting. Plus, it's a real player in this segment, which you couldn't have said five years ago.

Right off the bat, you'll notice two things: its price and its warranty. The mid-trim Sonata SE starts at just over $24,000, making it one of the most affordable well-equipped mid-size sedans on the market. For that money, you'll get a lot of standard features, such as cruise control, power sideview mirrors, heated front seats, a power-adjustable driver's seat, leather-trimmed upholstery, foglights, eighteen-inch aluminum wheels, and Hyundai's Blue Link telematics system. If you're one of those people who holds onto a car forever before trading in for something new, you'll dig the Sonata's warranty. The most important part of the warranty is full powertrain coverage for 10 years or 100,000 miles, whichever comes first. That warranty comes with all three of the Sonata's powertrains: the normally aspirated 2.4-liter in-line four-cylinder, the sporty 2.0-liter turbocharged in-line four, and the hybrid 2.4-liter in-line four, which also has a lifetime hybrid battery warranty.

Competitors have gotten more stylish and more efficient, and Hyundai is trying to stay relevant with the updated 2014 Sonata.

Recall Date
Hyundai Motor Company (Hyundai) is recalling certain model year 2011-2014 Sonata vehicles manufactured December 11, 2009, through May 29, 2014. In the affected vehicles, the transmission shift cable may detach from from the shift lever pin.
If the transmission shift cable detaches, the transmission gear selection may not match the indicated gear and the vehicle may move in an unintended or unexpected direction, increasing the risk of a crash. Furthermore, when the driver parks the vehicle, despite selecting the 'PARK' position, the transmission may not be in 'PARK.' If the vehicle is not in the 'PARK' position and the parking brake is not applied, there is a risk the vehicle will roll away as the driver and other occupants exit the vehicle or anytime thereafter. A vehicle rollaway increases the risk of injury to exiting occupants and bystanders.
Hyundai will notify owners, and dealers will inspect and, as necessary, repair the connection between the shift cable and shift lever, free of charge. The recall began in September 2014. Owners may contact Hyundai customer service at 1-800-633-5151. Hyundai's number for this recall is 123.
