Owner Reported Trouble Spots

The Reliability score is based on our latest subscriber survey of 2012 Hyundai Sonata owners. The owner comments describe problems respondents experienced with this vehicle.

In-car Electronics

CD or DVD players, radio, speakers, GPS, communication system (e.g., OnStar), display screen freezes or goes blank, phone pairing (e.g. Bluetooth), voice control commands, steering wheel controls, portable music device interface (e.g., iPod/MP3 player), backup or other camera/sensors.

What Owners Say

Backup or other camera/sensors

“Back up camera had no issues until winter of 2016. The screen that displays backing up went blue for about 3 weeks (each time car is put in reverse).
