2011 Hyundai Sonata: More Thoughts On The Ride Quality

July 16, 2010

Earlier this week Erin wrote that our Sonata's ride quality wasn't to her liking, noting that "there's far too much suspension movement over garden-variety bumps, ruts and seams, and it doesn't get any better on the freeway." Normally Erin and I come up with pretty similar conclusions on cars, but this time my opinion differs.

I certainly don't think our Sonata GLS rides too softly. It seems about right, actually, given the car's family sedan mission. If anything, I could see some people asking for the ride to be softer than it is -- I've noticed the suspension lets too many short, quick impacts from rough pavement into the cabin.
