Hyundai, meaning "modern" is a reflection of the era's present technological developments. As a vehicle that competes with the creations of respected manufacturers' world wide, it is expected to equip its units with all the auto parts which were machined only through efficient and advance technology.
Among Hyundai models, the Sonata is the one to have the latest edition. It's a mid-size car which was primarily transformed into a unit with a bigger chassis, better equipments, improved technology and sharper styling than its predecessors. The dimensions however have put the vehicle into a confusing situation. One cannot categorize it at once. But basically, the changes actually provided Sonata an enhanced image, new look and an aura of modernity.
Behind this image is a performance that's being generated through the use of all 2006 Hyundai Sonata parts. It features two types of engines, the 2.4-liter double overhead cam 16-valve inline-4 that kicks 162 horses and the 235 horsepower generating 3.3-liter dohc 24-valve V6 engine. Both can be coupled with a five-speed manual transmission or 4-speed Shiftronic automatic. Another transaxle is made available, the new five-speed Shiftronic automatic, which is only applicable for the V6 engine.
Sonata comes in GL, GLS, GLS V6 and LX. The Sonata GL highlights include air conditioning, cruise control, power outside mirrors, windows and central locking with keyless remote, AM/FM/CD/MP3 stereo, and leather-wrapped tilt steering wheel. The GLS is given long list of items wherein fog lamps, five-function trip computer, 16-inch alloy wheels, tilt-and-slide glass sunroof, auto-dimming inside rear view mirror with compass, HomeLink programmable garage and security remote, eight-way power driver's seat are just some. For the V6 equipped GLS, there's solar control window glass, 17-inch wheels, Michelin Pilot tires, HomeLink and power driver's seat. And the LX cannot be set aside as the trim which was endowed with the longest list of features.
You might own the mentioned Sonata trim, yet more Sonata owners drive the early models which might actually be having technical problems and damages by now. In due of this, securing replacement Hyundai Sonata parts is very much necessary. When this situation comes, always put in mind to get only the reliable products in order to retain the quality of the vehicle, the performance so as the look.
