Which Other Hyundai Sonata Years Should Enthusiasts Avoid?

I’ve discovered that the 2011-2014 Sonata models feature a front grille design that poses visibility issues while driving. The grille sits too low and has a thick frame, obstructing the driver’s view. Additionally, the 2011 Sonata received low safety ratings, primarily attributed to inadequate headlights and its performance in preventing collisions in the small overlap front crash test. These factors contribute to its reputation as a problematic model year.

Here are the Hyundai Sonata years that you might want to avoid due to reliability issues:

2005
2006
2007
2011
2012
2013
2014
2015
2021

These years have been reported to have various issues, including engine problems and recalls. Always do your due diligence when purchasing a used car. It’s also a good idea to check for any recalls or common problems with the specific year and model you’re interested in
