2011 Hyundai Sonata: Ride Isn't to My Taste
July 13, 2010
Our long-termer is the second 2011 Hyundai Sonata I've driven, and just as with the first test car, I don't care for the ride quality. Specifically, the dampers are derelict in their duty. Even when I'm just driving around town, there's far too much suspension movement over garden-variety bumps, ruts and seams, and it doesn't get any better on the freeway. Ultimately, you get a soft ride with the Sonata, but there's too little control for my taste. Mazda 6, please.
