I regret the day I considered Hyundai
By chris512 on


2013 Hyundai Sonata GLS PZEV 4dr Sedan (2.4L 4cyl 6A)


The harshest ride I've ever experienced from a sedan.
Either the suspension is too tight or the Kumho tires are too hard?
or both?
If you've even owned a small pick-up and experienced the rear end bounce from being too lite, that's what I feel in the Sonata.
I've put 100 pounds of sand in the trunk, deflated the tires to 28 psi, and bought a memory foam seat cushion, and still feel the rear end hop.
My only hope is to live with it until January (new tax year) and dump it.

At about 100 miles the center console started to rattle.

Best Features

I do enjoy playing MP3s from my flash drive. The AC cools nicely and I've been averaging 30mpg in the 800 miles since I bought it.

Worst Features

Suspension!!!! If it rode smoother, I'd keep it. But it has to go! It has a plastic gas fill door? How cheap can you be?
