Edit: There was a problem in the first year or so but it was fixed pretty fast. And i guess there were a lot of engines by Toyota, Honda and GM that burnt oil around 2009.
Trust me I loved the L67. But all dem Engine Fires. I drove a GP GTP one time it was a great little (boat) car. Until it caught fire. So many fires with that engine, but when it wasn't on fire it was relatively easy to get some more power out of it.
There's actually couple variants of the 3800 on that list. The Gen 3 had a lot of problems with head gaskets, LIMs. Not as wide spread as the 60V6s but it was there. The Series 1-2 in the 80-90s were really solid.

Something about 09 (or that vintage) when engines switched to low pressure piston rings and new casting processes in the industry.

Only variable for new car buyers is value of their trade-in. With auto sales cratering, incentives + financing go up, but somewhere dealers will have arguments.

Just signed for the 2020 Hyundai Sonata Sport today. Monthly lease is $454.61 tax in for 48 months. This is after $500 loyalty discount and health care provider (hospital worker) promo. They also gave us 2 free oil changes and set of rubber mats. Had to go back and forth between two dealerships to get this deal ($508 on website build and price, $470 initial offer (1st dealership), $455.85 next offer (2nd dealership), $455 with 2 oil change and rubber mats next offer (1st dealership), and last and final offer at (2nd dealership). Ended up with that 2nd dealership as they have the colour we wanted and customer service was better. My previous vehicle was 2017 Hyundai Elantra.
