Good value for the price

ReviewEnough power to merge with traffic at freeway entrances. Engine sound minimal at most conditions and still tolerable at full throttle. However, road noises unacceptable to me on freeways 290 and 59 in Houston. Perhaps the almost 200lbs and $2000 MSRP drops came from the reduction of sound isolation/insulation materials and labor. Manual adjustable passenger front side uncomfortable, unlike the 8-way power adjustable driver one. Rear speakers are really flimsy with tiny magnets (from the $1000 navigation upgrade package).
Best FeaturesEnough power under most traffic conditions. Unexciting middle-of-the-road exterior is expected to look okay and longer lasting than the Sonata which has a "ghastly appearance" (especially the front). Good Michelin Primacy tires.
Worst FeaturesNeed more sound isolation/insulation in the trunk, floor, doors, and ceiling (optional). Make leather passenger front seat power adjustable a standard (I paid for the leather package). Make the Blind Spot Monitor as a standalone order-able option (don't have to order together with Safety Connect option). Make the trunk open all the way by itself (rather than just unlock). Add proximity sensors that beep and also make outside rear mirrors tilt downwards when backing up. Automatic folding of side mirrors will be a nice upgradable option.
