Great first impression

2009 Hyundai Sonata GLS 4dr Sedan (2.4L 4cyl 5M)
After hours and hours of research, I finally drove a Hyundai. I was a little afraid of Korean auto makers because of previous cheap quality, but the Sonata reviews have been pretty favorable since 2007. I love the feel of the ride: comfort, handling, the whole thing. It drives like a more expensive auto and I'm loving the satellite radio. Dash lights are pleasant and easy to read, positioning of the fuel and trunk release buttons is brilliant. Lumbar support works well for my 5'2" frame and the 100,000 mile bumper to bumper warranty doesn't hurt. Definitely impressed so far.
Satellite radio, sporty feel to handling, comfort, exterior style, features (such as sun roof, ESC)
Keyed opening for trunk (in case battery goes out on remote), positioning of headlights. At night on dim, there is a sharp line between light and dark which is distracting and makes it seem like a dark veil is coming down over the windshield.
