2012 Hyundai Sonata SE 4dr Sedan (2.0L 4cyl Turbo 6A)

Review

The car is excellent for the value.
Hyundai put a lot into this car regarding quality.
I purchased the car new with all maintenance included.
I have owned the car for 1 year so far.
No issues.
Important:
You have to do the maintenance on this car or it will not drive like it is supposed to.
Also, the car has a GDI engine.
Please read up on the engine.
I bought a turbo because the engine runs better with it.
I have seen mileage fluctuations but it was related to gas and oil.
You have to put premium in once a month.
Chevron with Techron is best.
It does require injector cleaner once every 2 months to keep up the MPG.
Buy the maintenance with the car!!!!!!!!

Update: 4/2016
I still have the car. Still love it. Kept the one I have (Orig $27K) because a new one is $35K with less horsepower.
Had the A/C compressor replaced under warranty. Other than that, no issues. Still get great MPG and performance.
I am at 75K miles. Have to replace the oil at 3K-4K miles as the car burns the oil. No matter what type you put in. I
put royal purple from walmart. The car does require more maintenance that other cars, like my wife's honda accord.
I have to change the coolant, transmission,brake, and oil fluids more often.. . . twice as often in fact. But it runs. I do
not like the fact that you have to pay to update the navigation. Mine is a 2012 2.0T with~300hp. another update to come in
a year or so.
