Hello Sonata lovers, I bought my first Sonata in 2006 love the look but had issues like needing to replace the bulbs more then usual, when it rained it wouldn't always run right, if it died out I had to wait 15/25 minutes to restart it. I bought a 2007 wouldn't start if it was to cold and wouldn't start when very hot out, it ran the best when the weather was just perfect. I bought a 2010 in 2009 and had the similar issues. I was told its electrical, dearlship fixed it correctly. When the first 2011 came out I just had to get rid of my 2010 for the 2011. I love my 2011 SE model with all the bells whistles. I get much better gas mileage then my v6 even the 4cyl.
Anyway, the only issue I have with it... The engine makes a straight noise from day one. And I thought the push button start went bad, it was from me leaving the interior lights on overnight, low battery. I bought a charger/maintance battery left in on for a half a day. It started. FYI, Sonata's don't have the automatic interior light shut off. Does anyone else hear a weird noise from the engine, more noticable on accelaration?
