Review

Love the car. Only complaint would be lack of engine power when shifting between electric and gas motor. Doggy when making a turn from dead stop.

Review

There is a reason why the hybrid cost the same to buy as a non- hybrid would have been. I had expected the get mileage in the low 40s or high 30s but we have never had a tank full over 32 mpg. I have read a lot of complaints about braking drive-ability but haven't found any but poor mileage instead. As an engineer, I appreciate the difficulty of smoothly integrating electric and mechanical braking and apparently Hyundai has not solved the problem. They seem to have avoided problems by mostly disabling regenerative braking by keeping the battery mostly charged at high speeds so the regenerative breaking is limited by the lack of available energy storage capacity. The result is a system that minimizes law suits and warranty battery replacements. Great for Hyundai to meet government hybrid requirements but I feel used and unlikely to buy another Hyundai - certainly not another hybrid until I am sure they have solved the engineering problems.

Review

Too many mechanical issues troughout the life of the car,but most were repaired through warranty till 60k. Car is heavier or at least feels heavier than normal mid size sedans. Poor traction due to preloaded struts. Feels too rough with all the weight on the suspention. Poor performance on potholes and uneven pavement. Steering too slow. Takes extra effort with steering wheel to get it to respond. Electric breakes were noisy and sluggish since day one. First major repair was a break booster at 75k miles. Cost with dealer about $3000. As soon as that was fixed new problem. Car just died while driving Warning light:
• No “EV Ready” mode or “Ready” light blinks on and off
• Check Engine light on
• Charging warning light on
• “Wrench” symbol (Service Indicator) blinks on and off
Drivability symptoms:
• Vehicle will not move from a stop or gasoline engine will not turn on.
• Warning in the instrument cluster display: “Hybrid System Warning! Safely stop and Do Not
Drive” and/or alarm sound. Had to be towed to shop and diagnosed with code P1B77 again not covered by powertrain warranty. Repair cost about $1000. Also very hard to find anyone who knows how to fix them,even dealer mechanics are clueless. Do not buy this car used. Only good till 60k miles while on warranty.

Review

after reading other reviews i started laughing , yes the car has a delay when you suddenly demand fully acceleration ( so does every turbo car in the world ) LOL GET USED TO IT LIKE EVERY ONE ELSE , THE SHORT STORY AFTER OWNING THE CAR FOR OVER A YEAR , " I LOVE MY CAR ! PERIOD , I set the cruse at 62 mph and got 52.7 mpg in a 200 mile hwy test , the average mpg is 30-35 , pretty great for a large car that rides and feels as secure as a car can be ....it is not a hot rod but it holds the road great , so far no problems at all so far at 30k miles , on a side note its a base model and we got $7500 off the sticker , so I'm am NOT complaining about spending $33.000 like some other idiots we paid $20500 for a brand new car , if you have 33k to spend go buy a bmw or something that does go when you demand a rapid throttle response , any way i have NOTHING AT ALL BAD TO SAY ABOUT THIS CAR , if you buy a used one for 15k you are not stupid , p.s. get a extended warranty . I CANNOT WAIT TO SEE WHAT HYUNDAI DOES IN THE NEXT 5 YEARS
