“5,500 miles on my ’11 Sonata SE and I’m still smiling every time I get in. This is my first Hyundai (at age 31) and I am 100% satisfied. On a 40-mile-per-day commute from the ‘burbs to downtown, I get 30-32 mpg, and the paddle shifters offer just enough fun for passing and extra quick acceleration when possible. At 6 feet 5 inches, the headroom and legroom are awesome, and the backseat is great for kids’ car seats.” 

“Just a warning  the SE does ride a little harsh compared to the Limited, but that’s the cost of bigger wheels/lower profile tires and the fact that this is a somewhat new foray for Hyundai. If you want more cushy, go with the Limited or GLS.”

“The fact that everyone who sees it loves it. I’ve had a couple people at gas stations stop to ask about it, which makes it all that much more satisfying, and the value, well, I think everyone here has hit that on the head  unrivaled.” 

“I aspire for an Audi A6, BMW 5 Series or Mercedes-Benz E-Class, but if you’re in the price range for a Toyota Camry, Honda Accord, Chevy Malibu, Ford Taurus or Fusion, drive this and try it. You’ll be surprised.”
