A lemon underneath a very nice looking exterior
By judgemalloy on


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


The 2013 Sonata is a very nice looking car.
I traded in a 2010 Elantra for the Sonata.
The Elantra is a much better car than the Sonata.
The Sonata has a very rough ride, especially at highway speeds.
I expect this to lead to abnormal tire wear.
The GPS/Radio/Bluetooth/AC combination is poorly designed and difficult to use.
The combination design gives you control over one function at a time.
For example, when the navigator is active and you receive a call, the navigator goes to the background.
If you are on the call when you need to make a turn, you will miss it.
The voice recognition feature is absolutely horrible.
I have gone to using an external GPS and avoid using the built-in

Best Features

Exterior styling.

Worst Features

Completely redesign the interior of the car for function and comfort. Fix the design problem with the suspension that causes the rough ride and premature tire wear.
