Had it for little more than a month. I am happy!

I purchased a 2016 Honda Civic EX in January. Had nothing but issues out of it. Besides the ride being a little too firm for me. You could never ignore the road noise. Also mine came with a few manufacturer defects and Honda would not address them appropriately. So I sold it and got a Hyundai Sonata Sport instead, based on a recent rental car experience (new SE 2016 Sonata) a few weeks earlier. The engine is tepid, let's be honest, the Honda Accord I tested accelerated much better. However I am no longer a speed demon and it accelerated well enough and passed others cars with no fuss. The entire is absolutely quiet, almost to luxury car level (compared to a previously owned Lexus ES300) and at times you feel you are floating on a cushion of air. It is large inside, easily fitting me and my relatives with plenty of legroom in the back seat. It gets decent mileage (I'm averaging 37 on the highway, although the rental I had did 39.6 with a constant speed of 70mph). The exterior is simple, not as exciting as the Optima, but I think it will look better in the long run than the Optima. The interior looks more upscale than the Accord and it has soft touch plastic in areas, where the Accord has clothe, such as your arm rest. Felt the clothe would be harder to keep clean. The entertainment system had 'knobs', and big easily read buttons, placed in a logical manner. The Civic & Accord touchscreens with slide volume control drove me crazy. Lastly, I've only taken it into service once to replace a defective radio. Hyundai ordered me a 'new' radio and install it with no muss and no fuss. I wanted an economical highway cruiser and with this car, I got one.
