Model Highlights

Two different engines are available on the front-wheel-drive Hyundai Sonata for 2007--a 162-horsepower, 2.4L four-cylinder or a 234-horsepower, 3.3L V6. Both of these engines have all-aluminum construction, continuously variable valve timing (CVVT) for good response at all speeds, and hydraulic engine mounts to help reduce vibration.

Four-cylinder models are available with a standard five-speed manual transmission or four-speed automatic, while V6 models are only fitted with a five-speed automatic transmission with a Shiftronic feature good for manually selecting gears when desired. With either engine, the Sonata has very respectable fuel economy for a four-door sedan, with up to 34 mpg on the highway with the four-cylinder and up to 30 with the V6.

The Sonata has a roomy interior large enough for five adults, and the rear seat is 60/40-split and folds forward nearly flat. A smooth ride is assured by a four-wheel independent suspension with double wishbones and coil springs in front and a multi-link arrangement in back.

Six air bags are standard, including front seat-mounted side-impact air bags and side-curtain bags that cover front and rear outboard occupants. All Sonatas now also have electronic stability control (ESC) and anti-lock four-wheel disc brakes with electronic brakeforce distribution (EBD). And in federal crash tests, the Sonata got the highest five-star results for front and side impacts.

The base GLS comes with the four-cylinder, while the better-equipped SE and Limited models come with the V6. The GLS includes keyless entry, air conditioning, cruise control, a tilt steering wheel, outside heated mirrors, and power windows, locks, and mirrors. A Premium Sport package adds alloy wheels and fog lamps.

Next up is the SE, which brings more powerful brakes, fog lamps, chrome trim, steering-wheel-mounted audio controls, and solar glass. The top Limited model includes alloy wheels with lower-profile tires, automatic climate control with air quality system, an auto-dimming rear-view mirror, telescopic steering wheel adjustment, and a sliding center armrest. Top options on the SE and Limited include a power sunroof and an upgraded sound system with a six-disc CD changer, MP3 compatibility, and a subwoofer.


Pros

Interior space; ride; refinement; fuel efficiency; low prices.


Model News

After a complete redesign for 2006, the Hyundai Sonata returns for 2007 with a price reduction across the line, a revised feature list, and new trim levels. The base Sonata GLS entered the market for 2007 costing $700 less than a comparable 2006 Sonata GL.

Electronic stability control (ESC) is now standard on all Sonatas, and all engines now meet ultra low emission vehicle (ULEV) standards.

An Infinity premium sound system is now available on the Limited model. The exterior color palette includes Dark Cherry Red and Natural Khaki for 2007, and black leather interior trim is now optional on the Limited model.


Value Writeup

With the 2007 Hyundai Sonata's drop in price, it's even more competitive versus its primary competition, which includes the Honda Accord and Toyota Camry. The Sonata's V6 has more torque than the Honda Accord V6, and Accord and Camry don't offer a manual-selection mode such as Shiftronic. Hyundai also says that the Sonata has more torsional stiffness than the Honda Accord, which affords a quieter ride while still maintaining precise handling, and claims that the cabin quietness is class-leading.

Potential Number of Units Affected

Summary
HYUNDAI IS RECALLING 393,714 MY 2006-2008 SONATA VEHICLES EQUIPPED WITH AN ADVANCED AIR BAG SYSTEM WHICH FEATURES AN OCCUPANT CLASSIFICATION SYSTEM (OCS) IN THE RIGHT FRONT SEAT. THE PURPOSE OF THE OCS IS TO DISABLE THE RIGHT PASSENGER SEAT FRONT AIR BAG WHEN IT DETECTS THE PRESENCE OF A CHILD RESTRAINT SYSTEM OR SMALL CHILD IN THE RIGHT FRONT SEAT. THE RIGHT FRONT AIR BAG IS DISABLED TO PREVENT INJURIES TO A CHILD THAT MAY RESULT FROM A RIGHT FRONT AIR BAG INFLATION DURING A CRASH.

Consequence
MISCLASSIFICATION OF A SMALL STATURE ADULT AS A CHILD IN THE RIGHT FRONT PASSENGER SEAT MAY CAUSE THE RIGHT FRONT AIR BAG TO NOT INFLATE IN AN ACCIDENT THAT MERITS AIR BAG DEPLOYMENT AND MAY RESULT IN INJURY TO THE RIGHT FRONT OCCUPANT.

DEALERS WILL VERIFY THAT THE OCS DOES NOT PROPERLY RECOGNIZE A PROPERLY SEATED ADULT OCCUPANT. AFTER VERIFICATION, DEALERS WILL REMOVE THE RIGHT FRONT SEAT CUSHION ASSEMBLY AND SHIP IT TO AN EVALUATION AND REPAIR FACILITY. THIS FACILITY WILL EVALUATE AND REPAIR OR REPROGRAM THE SEAT CUSHION AND OCS AS NECESSARY. THE RECALL IS EXPECTED TO BEGIN ON OR ABOUT MAY 26, 2008. OWNERS MAY CONTACT HYUNDAI AT 1-800-633-5151.

Summary
Hyundai is recalling certain model year 2006-2010 Sonata vehicles manufactured March 1, 2005, through January 21, 2010; and model year 2006-2011 Azera vehicles manufactured September 27, 2005, through November 22, 2010 originally sold in, or currently registered in, Connecticut, Delaware, Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Maine, Maryland, Massachusetts, Michigan, Minnesota, Missouri, New Hampshire, New Jersey, New York, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, Vermont, West Virginia, Wisconsin and the District of Columbia. Road salt and water can enter portions of the rear crossmember, leading to corrosion of the crossmember steel. This may lead to detachment of one of the rear control arms.

Consequence
Control arm separation may suddenly change the rear wheel alignment, affecting the handling of the vehicle, increasing the risk of a crash.

Hyundai will notify owners, and dealers will repair or replace the crossmember assembly. The recall is expected to begin by the end of September 2013. Owners may contact Hyundai Custom Care Center at 1-800-633-5151. Hyundai's recall number is 113.

Owners may also contact the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration Vehicle Safety Hotline at 1-888-327-4236 or go to www.safercar.gov.

Crash Test Note
Results based on a 35 MPH frontal crash and 38.5 MPH side crash. Results are reported in a range of one to five stars, with five stars indicating the best crash protection for vehicles within the same weight class. This test used driver and passenger belts and airbags.

NHTSA Rollover Rating

Rollover Note
The Rollover Resistance Rating is an estimate of your risk of rolling over if you have a single vehicle crash. It does not predict the likelihood of that crash. The Rollover Resistance Rating utilizes a "fishhook" maneuver which is a series of abrupt turns at varying speeds to see how "top-heavy" a vehicle is. The more "top-heavy" the vehicle, the more likely it is to roll over. The lowest rated vehicles (1-star) are at least four times more likely to roll over than the highest rated vehicles (5-stars).
