2011 Hyundai Sonata GLS: Automatic Climate Control

February 01, 2011


Our 2011 Hyundai Sonata GLS test car has the following options:

Sixteen-inch alloy wheels; power driver seat; driver's lumbar support; automatic headlight control; chrome interior door handles; leatherette interior panel door inserts; navigation system with high-resolution touchscreen display; dimension AM/FM/XM/CD/MP3 audio system with seven speakers and external amplifier (360 watts); 90-day complimentary subscription to XM NavTraffic, XM NavWeather; XM sports and XM stock), Carpeted Floor Mats.

For more than 13,000 miles, I've been so blinded by all of these great features, I failed to notice one simple thing it was missing:

Automatic climate control.

Not that the boatload of other standard and optional equipment on the GLS isn't awesome, but seems auto climate control would be a basic luxury that would come before the fancy high-res nav system.
