I haven't been paying attention to Sonatas especially but for any used car:

Take it to an independent mechanic for an inspection. Set up that as an appointment with the mechanic beforehand, and if the seller won't let you get it inspected then get a different car from someone else. This will cost a hundred-ish dollars but it can save you thousands, so it is worth it!

At the very least, give it a look-over using a checklist like one of these:
