do not purchase this vehicle if you want a good working bluetooth system. Upon our third complaint I receive a letter from Hyundai saying, "it is considered normal operation for the incoming call volume to be quieter than the audio level setting and to adjust the volume on certain calls".
That nice, except you cannot hear the incoming call.
two other comments off their letter:
We are sometimes unable to produce an automobile with the features and materials that will satisfy or appeal to all of our customers.

If you prefer, you are more than welcome to contact the Highway Safety Association and report the concern to the Consumer Protection Agency.

Best Features

engine and gas mileage

Worst Features

get a better bluetooth system and take care of your customers when it comes to the system. make the side windows and rear window big for better visibility. please before you purchase this vehicle research the internet to see all the problems with the bluetooth. you will be glad you did as individuals are asking for a class action lawsuit and some are tying to use the lemon law.

I purchased a 2013 Sonata about 3 months ago and had the same problem with the in-coming call volume on the Bluetooth radio. The dealer was no help, saying they were 'looking into the problem'. A quick search on-line showed the solution. Have someone call your cell phone while you are in the car. when the phone starts to ring, turn up the radio volume before you answer the call. This will set the volume in the radio memory. Also, some people complained about the Bluetooth system cutting of calls after fifteen minutes. If you are driving and talking for fifteen minutes, maybe it's time to hang up anyway!! Your life is NOT that important. Try concentrating on the road, we'll all be safer.
