2011 Hyundai Sonata
Pros: Gas mileage rocks on this vehicle and the warranty
Cons: no cons at the momentWe just purchased the 2011 GLS. The car is fantastic. I have had it for 2 days now and took my first long trip. I had 39 miles per gallon on the trip. Purchasing this car was a great experience from the Hyundai dealer and I would recommend that you check this vehicle out. It is the top of it's class. The new DGI engine is a winner all the way. The standard features in the vehicle are outstanding.
Why buy anything else?
Pros: Its quiet spaciousness.
Cons: Those damn seat-belt reminders!A cuv may be more practical. A sport car is more exciting. But no sedan equals this car when it comes to practical value. I always check out new cars -- even luxury cars. Not because I have a desire to own one but to keep up with new developments in the automotive world. For instance, I check such as the design, finish and fit on the door insides. I haven't found any that equals that of a Sonata Limited. I still get compliments on my two-year old car. Its size, its style (cool, sedate, not flashy), the silence of the engine, even the quality of the paint. It is spacious and comfortable. All things considered, why drive something else?.
Pros: overall ride and comfort
Cons: the paint chips too easilyi am very satisfied with this car. this is my second new hyandia and i plan on buying a new one in a few months
Pros: the power
Cons: driver seatnice overall.
Pros: Beautiful lines of exterior and improved 4 cyl. engine.
Cons: That I can't sleep in it.LOLJust had the car a week in the Limited edition; and I can say forst; great ride and great lines. A surprising low torque engine in the 4 cyl. mode. My wife has a 2010 Mazda 3 2.5 and the Sonata is more fun to drive and has a big boost at about 60 klick's ( 45 miles an hour) and just as much torque. Getting 8.4 litres/100 km, combined city and highway with the air on constantly. Full of toys and I would recommend the upgrade to the Limited edition because of the leather and the 7 speaker sound system. Great price/value.
Pros: the ride comfort
Cons: fix place mirrors, no give in the garageI have 75,000 mile is 3 years and ave. 27 mph, have had no major problems, and my wife and love the ride comfort (600 mile trips to visit our son). Has lots of power for a 4 cyd, lot of interior room, pulls a trailer with ease.
Very nice drive
Cons: HornIt's everything that Hyundai says it is. Great mileage, quiet, good performance for a 4 cylinder, handles very nice, nice sound system, Navigation is near perfect, as is the bluetooth feature.
