good car but some limitations
By carl12 on
2009 Hyundai Sonata Limited 4dr Sedan (2.4L 4cyl 5A)
I bought this car used in 2010.
I replaced a bmw 535.
I was impressed how the car is built.
It is pretty bullet proof.
It is much quieter than a Honda and rides as nice as a Toyota model.
My commute takes me 130 miles over two mountain passes in Washington.
I carry between 2 and 4 adults.
I average 28.5 mpg.
Another carpooler gets 31 with his 6 cylinder Camry.
So, that disappoints.
The other issue is that the weight limit on this car is about 835 lbs.
4 adult men add up to that and if you add any luggage, you are around 1000 lbs.
I mention this because during one drive on an icy I-90, flat road, I could barely hold the car to the road, semi trucks passed me.
quiet ride, fair mileage, reliable.
Improve the mileage, improve the weight carrying ability.
Fix the headlight problem where you have to have the key in the ignition and turned
on to turn on the headlights.
