Vehicle2013 Hyundai Sonata GLS PZEV 4dr Sedan (2.4L 4cyl 6A)
ReviewWorst choice in vehicle i could have made. The car has a shake and engine miss at idle that feels like it will fall out of the car. At idle when stopped at a light the engine has a lope and as you takeoff it shakes and vibrates until you take off. Dealer has blown off all my complaints but acknowledged they test it at idle it park, and they felt what i felt but it doesnt set a code in computer so they cant tell whats wrong. I guess im supposed to just live with it. Hyundai suggested i take it to another dealer which i can guess will go over real well.
Best Featuresdash layout and colorare great.
Worst FeaturesOther owners have tried replacing the EGR and Engine mounts as well as plug and wires to no avail.

2.4 liters is big for a 4 cylinder and without balance shafts (they reduce mpg) or active motor mounts it will vibrate. This is one way they keep the price down.Report it

I test drove a gls today and experience the shaking at idle. It felt like a massager was on the seat. It was really annoying. It felt that the engine needed a tune up or like you said it needed new mounts.Report it
