Vehicle2012 Hyundai Sonata GLS 4dr Sedan (2.4L 4cyl 6A)
ReviewDisappointing gas mileage.
Divide mileage by gallons and find it's only getting about 24mpg for mixed city/hwy.
That's with the eco mode on and gentle driving.
Not what I was led to believe.
Steering is a little twitchy on the freeway.
Seats are a little firm.
Other than that it's a nice car.
So far no problems.
Best FeaturesInterior styling. Blue tooth. Peppy engine. Exterior body lines.
Worst FeaturesStop giving misleading mileage numbers. Different tires or steering so not so twitchy on freeway. Better stereo in base model.

The worst I got was 25.37mpg. The best 29.73mpg. Total average is 27.44mpg. For our 2006 Sonata total average was 25.38mpg.Report it

EPA combined is just a tad higher at 28. Eco mode doesn't make up for bad driving habits, one has to drive "sensibly" to achieve the EPA estimates. The pedal is you enemy for MPG!Report it

So far, I drive 80% highway, 20% city and I get exactly 30.00 mpg. I am also going through construction right now so that may change. I've had friends get 34-35 MPG 100% highway on trips going 75 mph so it is possible. City driving really effects the MPG.Report it

I completely agree about the MPG.... VERY Misleading. I own a 2012 and found same results..Report it
