love / hate relationship
By tonysi on


2012 Hyundai Sonata SE 4dr Sedan (2.0L 4cyl Turbo 6A)


My first non honda product in many years. Love the features, performance, mileage and style. What i hate are the problems, waste gate issue after 1000 miles, spider webs in the turbo, waste gate reprogram again and finally at 50k the engine light on again and a fuel pump replacement. While all were under warranty there were no loaner cars offered by my dealer. Its like my Corvette, great car when its running right !
I finally traded this car in last year after 72k miles because it just did not age well. The car felt very loose and and developed suspension issues in the front end and a recall for an issue with the rear suspension. I guess I was a spoiled Honda owner who was not accustomed to repeat visits to the shop for repairs, covered or not. Yes, I have returned to Honda, new CRV, which has never been back to dealer for any issues in the past year.
