2007 Hyundai Sonata Problems
On the 2.7L V6 and 2.4L 4 Cylinder, a defective exhaust gas recirculation (EGR) switching valve may cause an intermittent rough or unstable idle engine.
Prior to replacing the automatic transmission fluid (to improve shift quality), make sure that the transmission fluid level is correct. Also, make sure the computer that controls the transmission has the most up-to-date adaptive programming information. When servicing these transmissions be sure to use fluid approved by Hyundai.
Parking lights not turning off intermittently or all the time. The common problem is with the cabin fuse box. Complete replacement of the assembly is necessary to fix the problem.

2007 Hyundai Sonata Recalls
The rear suspension is the attaching point for the control arms and other rear suspension components. Road salt and water can accumulate in and around the rear crossmember causing it to rust. Excessive rust could cause one or both rear control arms to separate from the crossmember resulting in a sudden change in vehicle handling, increasing the risk of a crash. Dealers will inspect the rear crossmember and repair or replace it as necessary to correct this concern.
The stop lamp switch may fail, affecting many vehicle systems including the brake lights, transmission shift interlock, electronic stability control, and the cruise control. Failure of any of these systems could increase risk of a crash. Dealers will replace the stop lamp switch to correct these issues. This recall is to begin on June 29, 2009. The Hyundai recall number is 092.
The front passenger seat sensor, to detect a child seat or adult in the seat, may recognize a small adult as a child seat. If this happens and the front passenger air bag is deactivated, the risk of injury in a crash may be increased. Dealers will verify the Occupant Classification System (OCS) is not working properly. After verification, dealers will remove the front passenger seat cushion and send it to a repair facility. The recall began May 26, 2008. The Hyundai recall number is 083.
2007 Hyundai Sonata Reviews
What a treat it is to drive my Sonata! even after 100000 miles with no minor or major repairs and only scheduled maintainance, my Sonata is as smooth and quiet as the day I took delivery. It's hard to resist the temptation to cruise at 80 mph all day. I would recommend the 6cyl over the four just to experience the smooth powerful engine performance. This is the nicest car I have ever owne...
I love my 2007 Sonata, got it brand new, have 150,000 miles on it, and no significant problems....for the person whose cruise does not work, mine did not either, until the dealer found a short with the wrong headlight bulbs. Make sure to buy the bulbs at the dealership, autozone bulbs only short them out quickly. My car is quiet, has a rockin XM radio that came with it, my 6-foot hubby can sit ...
