Very disappointing!

I bought the Sonata for its snazzy looks, technology and the promise of good gas mileage. Other than its looks, it's been a disappointment. The ride is bad - I feel every bump in the road. The gas mileage is not what was promised. I'm only getting an average of 22-23 mpg. overall. And, its performance in snow was so poor the first winter I had it that I ditched all 4 tires and bought new ones with the promise of improvement. The 2nd year wasn't much better. Granted, there was alot of snow in Rhode Island this year, but - hey - it performed way worse than my old 1999 Camry in snow! Uncharacteristically, I will probably be unloading it way sooner than usual or as planned.

Favorite Feature : The sound system (speakers, ipod connection, bluetooth for streaming, phone/bluetooth) is great. It's also very comfortable. The controls are well-organized. There is plenty of storage space, the trunk is very ample and seating is just right.

Suggested Improvement : Gas mileage is not as advertised, a better suspension system is needed and the car needs to be re-weighted to perform better in snow.

Average Rating : 2.875
