2011 Hyundai Sonata GLS: Perceived Quality

February 17, 2011

Perhaps you tuned in last week for the perceived quality blog on our long-term Nissan Juke, which has a bad case of wibble wobble in its HVAC and audio-control knobs.

This week, it's the Sonata's turn.

The Sonata's shift-release button and the shifter itself provide a solid side-to-side movement and resonate a quality feel. Both controls hit their stops with a deliberate and well-damped thud rather than a hollow plastic clank (Juke, anyone?).

These are the little things you'll notice every time you drive a car. And they matter.
