    She currently has a 07 Sonata Limited that is really nice, but is hitting 50,000
    miles now and the pre-owned warranty only last to 60,000. I wouldn't buy
    it until summer or later, but they look pretty nice. Anyone got thoughts??

    it's only three years old, i don't think it's exactly going to fall apart 10k miles from now to need to buy a new one

    Well, she wants something newer and really likes Hyundai. I personally do not care what she drives as long as it runs and is safe.

    She saw them also. I looked them up, and they are not bad at all.

    My wife owned a couple, and last year I bought her the 07 that she has now. Seems pretty solid, have not had a single issue with it yet.

    I drive a truck, and never care that much what it looks like. She really likes it and appears to be a solid car overall. Might have to hit up a dealership to check it out in person this week

    They make good cars these days. Your wife or you should go for a test drive.

    You don't have to worry about my financial situation. She usually gets another car every 2 years or so. I don't mind

    so what happens to the 07 Sonata? Trade-in? How much do you think you can get for it?

    I have no idea what Hyundai's resale value is nowadays

    The 2011 sonatas look better in a darker colour, not so nice in a light colour like silver at all. The 07 will go for ever too if you maintain it. My dads 07 v6 limited has 145 000 kms or 90 k miles, and no problems to date.
