Hyundai Sonata 2018
Carsguide Contributing journalist Peter Anderson had this to say at the time: The Sonata's new look is unlikely to send it rocketing up the sales charts, but that's not what it's all about here in Australia. Having said that, it comes with some useful improvements, especially in Active trim, with a few spec additions that make the Premium's almost 50 percent... er... premium on price look a bit stiff.You can read the full review here.
This is what Peter Anderson liked most about this particular version of the Hyundai Sonata: Quiet and refined, Excellent ride, A lot of car for the money
The 2018 Hyundai Sonata carries a braked towing capacity of up to 1300 Kg, but check to ensure this applies to the configuration you're considering.

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.Show more
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.Show more
Bull bar for a Sonata?

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.Show more
