2011 Hyundai Sonata Hybrid
The 2011 Hyundai Sonata Hybrid with Premium Package is a stunningly beautiful car with a luxury car level of comfort. Interior color could be a bit less drab though.
My Check Engine Light has been coming on since 451 miles. (I now have 1381 miles on my odometer.) My Dealership is still trying to determine the cause of the Check Engine Light. Also, the XM Radio did not initially work. The Dealership installed a new antenna, then a new radio. The XM Radio now works, but the display screen for the Radio is different than the original one. The other concern I have had with 2011 Hyundai Sonata Hybrid is that when you put the car into reverse when parking on an incline, the car continues to roll forward for several feet. My Dealership has told me this is normal. I feel this is dangerous & most definitely should not be normal. I bought my Hyundai Sonata Hybrid on May 25, 2011. I had a 2006 Hyundai Sonata GLS 4 Cylinder & it was the perfect car. I was expecting the Sonata Hybrid to be equally perfect as it was made at the same auto plant in Assan, Korea. Additionally, I have found the gas mileage is not much better in the 2011 Sonata Hybrid than it was in in 2006 Hyundai Sonata GLS 4 cylinder car which also got over 40 miles per gallon on the highway at speeds of 55 -- 60 miles per gallon. The Hybrid is a few miles better per gallon in town than my 06 Sonata.
MY 2011 Hyundai Sonata is a beautiful, very comfortable car with many nice features which make it a pleasure to drive. However, the problems I have had to date -- especially the recurring Check Engine Light -- have been very distressing. Hopefully, in a few years I will be saying that although there were a few glitches up front, I bought a good car.
