Wouldn’t be so bad if it was a manual pop up glass. The Lexus one is motorized, and it also tilts open at the rear. It is wonderful on those cool fall nights, but damn the water leak is killing the interior.

It is only a matter of time until the Mercedes one starts leaking.

My 190D's sunroof is still holding up fine, I think the Benz ones seal better than other imports.

Welcome to the full size sedan club haha. I got out of the subcompact game earlier this year myself.

Thanks, I'm thrilled. The versa had issues and was cheaply made. The cool thing about this Sonata is that it's the base model which is still loaded as far as Iam concerned. I got the chance to pull parts from a fully loaded Sonata headed to scrap so I grabbed the fog lights and the paddle shifters. Turns out the paddle shifters are plug and play so I now have a base with those. It's black with gray insides. Hub caps, not alloys which is fine.No nav which is fine too.The nav doesn't swap with the limited model, I was SOL on that. Should be in my driveway tomorrow.

Dude! Nice score on the paddles. I don't use mine too often, but they're fun when you feel like driving in a sporty manner. I'm sure you can find some sweet aftermarket wheels for it if you want to pretty up that part.

Great score man. Korean cars have improved in leaps and bounds since the mid-2000s.

I know what you guys mean...besides the truck I drive a 1999 camry, le v6. A bit dated and pretty basic by today's standards but it was pretty well-optioned when it was new. It's been in the family since, well, 1999 and I got it as a hand-me-down a few years ago. It's a great car, not very exciting to drive but very smooth and comfortable. 232K on the clock and still going strong.

The USA has got to be one of the cheapest developed countries to own a car in. Everything is cheap compared to the rest of the developed world - taxes, registration, insurance, fuel etc. Many (but certainly not all) areas also have no requirements for safety or emissions, as long as you pay for tabs you can keep driving it.
