2011 Hyundai Sonata GLS: Blue Lighting Still A Bad Idea
August 17, 2010
The reasons haven't changed and nor has Hyundai's implementation. Simply put, you can't turn down the brightness far enough when it's well and truly dark outside. Plus, since blue-lit text has crummy edge definition, the afflicted buttons are nigh unreadable. And you really don't want to crank up the brightness to compensate, else the speedo and tach end up blinding you.
Also, the PRND is way bright, too, even at fully dim.
Something tells me Hyundai is steadfast in continuing this silly lighting habit.
