Autotrader Find: 1997 Hyundai Sonata With Just 57,000 Miles

If you’ve ever searched for a well-kept older Hyundai or Kia, you know that finding one is hard. While most people buy Japanese cars to use and rarely preserve them, that goes double for Korean cars — especially since many Korean cars had substandard quality until the 2000s, making them difficult to save even if you wanted to.

Nonetheless, this particular 1997 Hyundai Sonata is indeed a well-preserved older Korean car — and it’s pretty much the only one listed for sale on Autotrader. Offered by AJ Auto Sales in Fall River, Massachusetts, this Sonata has traveled just 57,000 miles in its 22 years on this planet, and the interior and exterior are both in nice shape — relics from a bygone era of Korean vehicles.

Indeed, this Sonata represents a very early example of Hyundai’s midsize sedan, which first went on sale in North America for the 1995 model year. Many people don’t even realize this version was sold in North America, but indeed it was — just not in very large numbers, and few are seen today.

If you’re interested in a Korean car from the old days, this Sonata is finished in gold with a beige interior, and it’s offered for just $2,750 — not a bad figure for a low-mileage car like this. Find a Hyundai Sonata for sale
