2011 Hyundai Sonata: Got 'em all beat
September 28, 2010
Yep, we broke high-temp records all over Southern California yesterday and the official thermometer in downtown L.A. actually broke. I snapped this photo of 113-degrees in the Hyundai Sonata in Fullerton--beating Dan's 106 in neighboring Yorba Linda, and Kelley's 101 in Santa Monica.
I'm happy to report that unlike Mike's experience when he cracked open an already-nuclear Sonata, I was already traveling in a cool car as the heat rose. The HVAC had no trouble whatsoever keeping ahead of the ambient outdoor temps.
