2011 Hyundai Sonata GLS: Thinking About It

February 03, 2011

The 2011 Hyundai Sonata has only three real faults: 1) Light and languid steering. 2) An abrupt throttle delivery just beyond tip-in, and 3) The automatic transmission's lack of throttle blippage in manual mode to smooth downshifts.

Despite those glitches, the Sonata stands as a competent, flashily-styled, value-riddled midsize sedan with a lengthy warranty, the last letting you drift off to sleep easily each night.

Now if Hyundai could improve upon these areas, the Sonata just might provide some driving enjoyment, as opposed to being merely an appliance for getting from Here to There, and back again.

It's something to think about.
