Pros

Above average fuel economy, sleek looks , comfortable ride, good performance and over err all excellent acceleration. From my research Hyundai stacks up or even exceeds the
Longevity and reliability of its Japanese counterparts.

Cons

Parts and repair can be a little pricier.

Practical ,great Performance And Ride — Exceeds my expectations on almost all levels! Can satisfy the family sedan needs, techier Need and a good amount for those looking for good performance too! I'll admit I wasn't a Hyundai person prior to inheriting this vehicle but now I am convinced they're more than legit.

Content — The car has a lot of features you find in the typical higher end cars, like heated leather seats. The stock entertainment system is more than adequate, I wouldn't consider trying to upgrade with aftermarket. The Sonata huggs the road and has a reassuring feeling of control. It is fast and powerful, even with the small motor. I don't know how Hyundai does it but I almost feel it is quicker than the two corvettes I used to own. I got a fair deal and good value , in my opinion. I think this year even looks better than the 2015 model hybrids.

Pros

It gets excellent gas mileage and is a very sleek looking car. It rides comfortably both for driver and passengers. It's not too big or too small.

Cons

I honestly love this car but I am looking for something with more storage space like a hatchback or crossover.

Great Car And A Great Deal! — This car is fun and easy to drive. It runs smoothly and is a gas saver. I average about 30-32 miles per gallon on a tank of gas with a good mixture of city/highway driving. Truly a great car!

Very nice looking car, probably the most beautiful in it's category. Gives me about 34 MPG highway with lots of power, very comfortable and a pleasure to ride.

Cons

Some internal noise, nothing major.

A Head Turner!! — Superb design, affordable price and maintenance, comfortable ride, powerful and economic. Two color interior gives it a refined look and a even more charm to a very well designed interior. Nissan, Toyota, Honda, Chevy, don't get even close to it's good looks, Ford however could make a run at it with the new fusion. Overall a very nice car, a pleasure to have.

Like New Condition 2011 Sonata — More usable room, Softer seat, Well equipped interior, High safety scores Fuel efficient four-cylinder engines. Lots of convenient equipment, GPS, back camera, sun roof, USB connection, etc 39-40 mpg in highway driving I love to see softer seats and a little less gloss black plastic, Soft steering

Sonata 2011 — Not a bad all around car, this is the first full size sedan i have owned and so far i must say its impressed me, i do miss the cargo of the SUV however the trunk space is suprisingly large for its size. and can handle quite the load

Great Value — Great styling and comfortable for large and small drivers. After 45,000 miles, still running well and great fuel economy. Huge trunk space. Most other cars I researched in this price range did not have the nice appointments. I hope to keep this car for another 100,000 miles.

Missing a pedal

45

Compromise Between Mine And Her Choice !! — 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. 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. 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. 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 !!)
