Great Overall Car For The Money — Overall, this car drives great. Was very affordable. Good on gas. Also seems to hold the corners very well, and has good acceleration The safety systems on this car also work very well. The technology in his car is also very easy to use. The Bluetooth system links up well with your phone and it's easy to use

Fluid Sculpture Compelte Success — The Car drives very well, the build quality is awesome, the fuel economy very very good. The new 2.4l GDI is very smooth, great power. The interior is gorgeous, and the equipment very well thought out. Worth alot more than what they ask for. The looks of the Lexus, and the payments of a Hyundai , what a combo.

This Is An Amazing Car! — I'm so impressed that Hyundai has upped their game so much with the new Sonata. No longer is Hyundai synonymous with low quality. The 2011 Sonata is the full package on a budget! I couldn't be more pleased with it's features and it's style.

Its A Great Car. Period. — My family decided to get a Hyundai. We loved the look of the Sonata. We bought it for a fairly low price. It has great handling and wonderful styling. Hyundai has really stepped it up in the last few years.

missing a pedal

A Car To Own — First of all, i'd like to say it's missing a pedal. Argh... A new car.... Sorry, they replaced it by shift paddles. Oh, yeah, a new toy !! Performance wise, nice ride, smooth shifting in auto mode (will shift around 2000 rpm). Will shift at 5900 rpm when kicking the floor (still in auto) ........uhm.... start being interesting .... Nice looking, the 18 inches wheels make the difference. Double pipes exhaust. Fine leather, really updraded for 2011. Good front seats for that type of car, something i'm really looking at when i buy a car. Also realy impress by rear ones with plenty of room for the legs. I'm 6 feet tall and i'm driving with seat all the way back. To get same, you would need to pay 10k $ more for a Japanese car, 20k $ more for a German one or pay same for an American one and....... no comments. USB hard to reach espacially at night, would have placed an LED to help locate the port. In dash CD changer useless (got an 16Gb USB key !!)

Sonata Is A Fabulous Sedan That Has All The Right Stuff ... Thumbs Up! Way Up. — Absolutely awsome car for the price! If the looks were not enough, the ride comfort and list of standard equipment will convince you...Great power and excellent cobination of fuel economy. The Attention to the cockpit and interior is nothing short of Lexus...This is the car Toyota and Honda are going to wish they had been building! At 11,000 now, glad I got mine when I did... a waiting list is now the norm to get one! Fun to Drive? It doesn't get better than this for under $24K Thumbs Up Hyundai... Toyota and Honda: You better wake up.

Pros

Good handling in all situations, and speeds. Sensible controls, well designed, with easy to reach cruise, blue tooth and essential controls.

Cons

Gas mileage.  I expected 33+ overall but tend to get only 29mpg. I personally don't like the LED lighting on the radio display: its too bright when the car engine is off/power on.

Solid Car With Less Than Steller City Mpg — Great handling, very good acceleration. Stops very short distance. Nice styling. I always feel safe driving this car!! MPG in the city could be better, as I usually get 25 in the city and 32 highway. The back seat 60/40 release latch are located in the trunk and a bit awkward to keep unlatched before pushing both seats down but its doable.
