Hyundai Sonata Q&As

Check out real-world situations relating to the Hyundai Sonata here, particularly what our experts have to say about them.

  • Hyundai Sonata 2015: Reversing camera out of alignment

    Something apparently changed when they replaced the head unit. Was the replacement the same as the old one? I don’t doubt the claim that the camera itself can’t be adjusted, but something has changed and what that is needs to be established so it can be fixed. Take it back to the dealer and ask them to have another look and find a solution.

    Sometimes dealers don’t go the extra mile to fix a problem, they can be more focussed on getting the car out the door.

  • Should I buy a Hyundai Sonata?

    Comfortable, smooth, fuss-free, with plenty of room inside and a huge boot. It has 5-star safety and comes with a good warranty. It’s a good choice.

  • Bull bar for a Sonata?

    I'm not aware of anyone doing a bar for the Sonata. I would suggest you call the bar manufacturers directly, they might be able to point you in the right direction.

  • Tapping noise in Sonata

    It's most likely to be a sticking tappet or tappets and it takes time to pump up once you start the engine. In the three days the car was sitting the oil has had time to drain back into the sump, so it will take a short time for the oil to be pumped up through the engine again. Have a mechanic listen to the engine for you to determine where the knock is coming from, or change the tappets.
