2012 Hyundai Sonata Hybrid 4dr Sedan (2.4L 4cyl gas/electric hybrid 6A)


Shortly after purchase of the hybrid with the electronic package had multiple problems with hybrid system...Finally, after several engineering "fixes" the hybrid function has been as expected for the past 20,000 miles of California driving..I have not experienced any noticeable problem with the transition from electric to motor nor any meaningful problem with braking performance. Overall I think this car is a good combination of price, exterior design, and amenities without paying a premium for an upscale "badge."

Best Features

It is actually entertaining to see the hybrid system shifting from one mode to another rather seamlessly

Worst Features

the seats could be more comfortable and the absence of electrical seat adjustment for passenger is bothersome but presumably to keep the price down
