Unless you’re driving around in some ‘80s econobox, chances are you have electric door locks in your car. As with anything, these electric locks will eventually wear out, leaving you to use a physical key to unlock the door. The horror!
I’m not ashamed to say that the current Hyundai Sonata has caught my eye on the street a few times, mostly just because I’m not used to a Hyundai looking that normal yet and I need to process what I’m looking at. This new 2018 Hyundai Sonata is also not bad. There’s nothing wrong with it.
Joey’s a big guy. Nobody is questioning that. What Joey is questioning is why Hyundai is refusing to fix a broken part of his 2015 Sonata under their five-year warranty, and why Hyundai feels that reminding him he’s “large” is justification for not repairing his car. Oh, and they think he gets out of his seat wrong.…
One man in Florida was surprised when a six-foot snake emerged from his Hyundai’s hood during rush hour on U.S. Highway 19, reports WTSP. Surprisingly, that car is not on fire at the bottom of a ravine (like it should be), although consider this my request to nuke it from orbit just to be sure.

A year after Android Auto was announced with 30 automakers committed to bring it to market, Hyundai has become the first automaker to integrate Google’s smartphone-connected infotainment takeover into its cars. Well, car. Singular.
Lots of things about cars get me excited to wake up and spend another day on this slowly rotating rock. Outbraking somebody into a corner, for example. Loud, raucous motors revving to 7,000 RPM and beyond. Screeching, wailing tires pulling 1.3 Gs as they bend the laws of physics around a punishingly fast sweeper.…
America loves it some mid-size sedans. Wagons might be more practical and crossovers are now outselling the humble four-door, but mid-sizers remain the chariot of choice for a massive swath of the population. Nearly every automaker offers one and each comes in dozens of flavors, so how do you pick the best? We’re…
The Detroit News reports that Hyundai has issued a massive recall of its Sonata sedan for two separate issues. The first recall, which affects 883,000 vehicles involves the car rolling away; the other recall affecting 5,650 cars involves defective front brakes. Thankfully, no cars have both problems.
Two weeks ago we told you about a growing number of Hyundai Sonata owners who say their cars had a tendency to wander at highway speeds. Yesterday, Hyundai told us it has issued a service bulletin to fix those Sonatas.
The Hyundai Sonata is one of the best-selling cars in the United States and a touchstone for the Korean automaker's rise among consumers. Yet possibly thousands of the cars want to turn left, constantly — a problem Hyundai can't seem to fix.
"I'm gonna git you sucka," is the first thing Ben Gaskill thought when he realized the car in front of him at a red light was his wife's 2005 Hyundai, reported stolen from the couple's driveway just days before.
The 2011 Sonata has been a smash hit for Hyundai, already selling about 100,000 copies and winning near-flawless praise from auto reviewers. Yet many owners are now turning into D.I.Y. greasemonkeys thanks to the world's weakest horn.
Hyundai used to be an automotive punchline, but with the new Hyundai Sonata Turbo dishing up a cracking 274HP and 269 lb-ft of torque and 34 MPG from a twin-scroll turbocharged 2.0-liter direct-injection four-cylinder we wonder: who's laughing now?
When the Hyundai Sonata Turbo and the Hyundai Sonata
Greenwash Hybrid are unveiled at this month's New York Auto Show, Hyundai exclusively told Jalopnik they believe the two will cancel each other out. "No harm, no foul," we're told.
The Academy prohibits nominees and award presenters from appearing in ads during the Oscars, a problem for Korean automaker/adspace devourer Hyundai who uses Jeff Bridges as their pitchman. The solution? Use a bunch of losers, instead.
Today, Hyundai showed off its latest engine, the Theta II, a 2.4-liter, direct-injection four-cylinder with variable valve timing destined for the 2011 Hyundai Sonata. Impressively, they also showed us the guts of a beat-to-hell test unit.
