I got my Sonata hybrid in May and was very happy with it.
The hesitancy in shifting between electric and gas motor at low speeds did not bother me.
I did not appreciate any difficulty with the brakes, which worked well in a couple of emergensy stopping situationa.
My mileage was in the 40+ mpG range.
I had the first service about a month ago,
Hyundai updated the computer hardware and software for free.
After the service there was absolutely no hesitancy in shifitng and the MPG increases to 43-48 MPG. I remain very satisfied with this car and feel that it has gotten better.
smooth quiet ride
ease of entry and exit
comfortable drivers seat
The entire electrical system worjs in a natural way
how are you getting such a great mpg ? I am barely in 32mpg, though I mostly drive (90%) highway at cruise around 70mph. What magic trick do you use ? I am very gentle on driving, don't push it hard at all. Mostly no ac/heat so far and keep it consistent on speed. Any tips ?
