Nice Car , Great Mileage — Trunk space is bit less , braking is fine and you feel safe in the car. The car is fun to drive. The car's acceleration is not awesome but pretty good but that is what is expected out of an hybrid.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Nice car , excellent looks and mileage

Cons: Trunk space is bit less

Beautiful, But Only Fair Braking And Fair Acceleration From A Stop —

I love the beautiful lines of the car, the panoramic sun roof, the color. Complete strangers come up to me in parking lots, even men and tell me how beautiful the car is, especially the color. The interior is spacious and really comfortable, even the back seats. The problems are with braking and acceleration from a stop. The braking is jerky and there is a grinding, squeaking sound when the weather is really damp or rainy. That goes away after a few minutes, but it shouldn't happen at all. The acceleration from a stop, especially after the car has been sitting for a while in the garage or in a parking lot, is jerky. i understand from other reviews that this is a common problem with the hybrid and has to do with the engine struggling to be in hybrid mode or in gas mode. Again, this problem goes away after a few minutes. The ride on freeway or highway is incredibly smooth - just luxurious. The fuel economy is not what Hyundai stated that it was when the car first came out. Hyundai has acknowledged this problem and even is reimbursing owners for gas costs differences from what was advertised.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Gorgeous, inside and out. Comfortable, spacious interior. Really smooth ride - on highways or freeways.

Cons: Braking is not smooth, especially in rainy weather - there is a grinding sound, sometimes a squeaking sound when damp. Acceleration is jerky when first starting out from a stop.
