2021 Hyundai Sonata N Line
I love your videos. What do you think about the 2021 Hyundai Sonata N Line with 2.5L turbo 290HP? I own a 2015 Hyundai Sonata Sport with 2.5L naturally asperated with 71k miles. Have not had any major issues and I like the car but it lacks power. I'm thinking about trading in for the N Line with turbo but am leery about the longevity. Your thoughts?
PS, I maintain and don't beat the crap out of my cars
You probably have not had any issues because you only have 71K miles and you were lucky enough to get one that didn't have metal shavings in the oil or bad bearings. Hyundais tend to start falling apart around 100K miles or so even if you don't have those problems. Adding a turbocharger into the mix will only make things worse.
We are currently not recommending any Hyundai Motor Group products, especially for purchase, due to their poor track record for quality/reliability. The new ones are just a gamble. If you have been following Scotty for any length of time, then you already know he is not a fan of them either and has been warning people of them. If there was a doubt, see below: also, the 10 year/100,000 mile warranty (which only applies to the original owner) is not what it is cracked up to be as more times than not they look for ways to get out of a warranty claim and refer to problems as “Oh, that’s normal”. Plus, some of the mechanics working on the cars have no idea what they are doing.
If you must get a Hyundai or Kia product, then just lease it and return before the warranty expires.
Please avoid that car. That vehicle won't last 100k miles without problems with a turbocharger. Also, my sister currently drives a 2016 Sonata. I feel sorry that she bought it because she has the same mileage that yours has and she is having issues.
Just lease it, it's not worth buying it because if you buy it and you have problems with it and ur trying to sell it, ur gonna lose your shirt because they have no resale value. They don't hold up overtime.
If you want my recommendation get
Civic type r
But if you really wanna get Hundayi N line lease ...buying is not good option
