2011 Hyundai Sonata GLS: Doing the Lumbarda

April 01, 2011


I recently spent several hours in the last row, middle seat of a United Boeing 757, universally acknowledged as one of the worst spots you can get on the plane. No surprise that my back's been slightly tweaked since then.

When I got into our Hyundai Sonata yesterday, I tried an experiment. I punched up the lumbar support for part of the drive home, backed off it for a while and then expanded it again. And repeated that every few miles.

While amped-up lower-back support is certainly no replacement for a hot stone massage and sauna/steam at my favorite spa, I feel better today because of it.

How do you like your lumbar?
