I have had extensive experience with both,i have had issues with both
Accord- alternator fryed at 40000 and then the front shakes over 70 kmph ..major expenses .That car is being sold now.i have a 99 sonata the one before the current model.it fryed 2 regulator and 2 wheel bearing covered under warranty.
btw, the sonata wasa 6 cylinder and loaded with everything and the accord with a base model 6 cylinder and cost 4k more.
but if u love the speed the accord will kill the sonata every where.....but them my motorcycle does 0-100 kmph in 3.4 sec and tops at 260 kmph so i use that for the speed bug
so you really cannot campare the accord to a sonata -apples to oranges.
i would go with the sonata personally accords i do not know they rub me wrong for a full loaded accord you can get a accura TSX or bmw 3 series or a mazda 6[ i know but i rode it in a track day and ti was a hoot]
