So far so good!

2011 Hyundai Sonata Hybrid 4dr Sedan (2.4L 4cyl gas/electric hybrid 6A)


I have about 2200 miles on the car.
I have taken the car on a couple three hour highway trips, along with many miles around town.
I can get the advertised mileage if it is driven carefully.
I find that the highway mileage is a little lower when the cruise control is set.
To be fair I was traveling between 70 and 75 during the bulk of the highway trip.
I got about 38 to 39 mpg.
I find that with the cruise control off I can keep the car in the electric mode longer, and seem to get mileage of over 40 mpg.
I must admit however that I have always had a heavy right foot so this is actually very good.
My wife has gotten 35+ mpg in town.
So far very pleased.

Best Features

Mileage, body style and comfort.

Worst Features

The 12 volt power ports go dead when the ignition is off. Not good when you are trying to charge a phone while you're not in the car. I have noticed that when cold, the gas engine surges when it takes over for the electric motor. Runs much smoother when it is up to temp. I'm hoping a vist to the dealer will cure this.
