2011 Hyundai Sonata Limited - Great Car!

I purchased this car a little over 5 weeks ago, and according to the trip timer - logged so far over 60 hours in the vehicle commuting. My Limited has everything BUT the Nav. Don't waste your money - get an iPhone and you won't even need the radio - just the blue tooth and you're set! So far this car has lived up to my expecations without me even looking for things to be wrong. I think what's keeping me so happy is the value this car brings to the market. You get so much for a lot less than the competitors. We're a Honda family and have been for years - would have spent at least 5K more on a similar model. The only draw back, which I knew before I purchased, was the GDI engine noise. It's not as quite as I would prefer it. I want an engine quite enough what you can't tell it's running. The GDI is noiser than that.... If you're looking at making a purchase that has a lot of value in the features and are willing to break that Honda, Toyota mold - welcome to the Hyundai family!

I recently purchased a Hyundai Sonata two months ago and it is simply amazing. No problems so far at all and I bought my vehicle used with 30,000 miles on it. I get really great gas mileage, especially going two and from work. The speakers sound as if there is two subs within the car!!! Definitly worth the price. If your looking for value for your money toward spending a car, look no further!!

My shopping came down to the 2011 versions of: Sonata, LaCrosse and Acura TL. The Sonata Limited Turbo provides 274hp froma turbo 4 cylinder as compared to the others v6 engines. On a receent road trip I averaged 31.8 mpg with a best of 33.8mpg on some highway stretches. No way any v6 powered car is going to return those mileage figures. The Sonata also came in about $6G under the price range for a comparable Buick and $8G under the Acutra. The turbo model of the Limited does come with the "sport" tuned suspension, which is comparable to that of the Acura and no way as cushy as the Buick. I've been really pleased with te build quality and reliabilty of this car. My few complaints are that there is no memory seating available and the Radio/Navigation screen has very minimal brightness adjustment and seems way too bright at night, at the lowest posssible setting. I'm considering installing window tint on it to tone it down! LOL I would gladly tell anyone to consider the Hyundai Sonata for their next new car purchased. Heck, I traded in a Toyota and have not been dissappointed. Happy Motoring!

I bought a 2011 Hyundai Sonata a couple months ago and am glad that I did. On a couple longer trips we averaged 40-41 miles a gallon. We average 32-33 driving around our little town. Fantastic for this size car. The only minus item is that the SE has the sports suspension which has a rather stiff ride - a person feels any irregularities in the pavement such as a little hole or the repair bumps in a road. I can live with that though for all the other great features this car provides.

I used to be a hardcore Honda man... Until I tried Hyundai. I love my new Sonata! This is my 2nd Hyundai now. You get ALOT of bang for your buck!! It has an extremely roomy interior,huge trunk, IPOD USB port, nice stereo,nice exterior design,great acceleration, alloy rims, and the gas mileage is insane for a big car, I get like 40 MPG at times!! & they give me a 100K Powertrain warrantee. & all of this, cost me only $21K!! if you want the most bang for your buck without sacrificing reliability, Hyundai is the brand!!!

Purchased new 8 months ago. This car has been a very pleasant surprise. No problems. Excellent road trip car.Comfortable. Very nice gas mileage. High tech. Reliable. Tons of room. Very stylish. 3 free months of XM radio. Excellent road manners. After all this I even received a gift pre-paid card from Hyundai. I cannot say enough good things about my first Hyundai and I never thought I would own one.

My last 3 cars were Mazda Toyota and Honda All 3 had no mechanical problems and were very reliable. My Sonata rides as well as the Camry and has much better styling. In 3-4 years will it hold its value as much as a Honda or Toyota? If it does then I will get another one. Only time will tell. MY WIFE AND I ARE VERY HAPPY WITH OUR PURCHASE.

Read everything I could about this car for a year. Purchased limited turbo loaded except for nav. Not worth $1600. Have 1100 miles on the car and just took a weekend trip where I averaged 32.9. Comfortable seats and plenty of power when you want it. Very satisfied.

Best car I ever owned

by from Georgia on April 28, 2011

Excellent handling,power, style makes this car stands out.Best feature is the rear heated seats. The turbo beats BMW 330i and other high end car without shelling extra thousands of dollars.

I have exclusively been a Honda Accord guy since 1990, and very satisfied with their product. When I decided to buy a new car, I immediately gravitated toward the 2011 Accord EX. After driving it, it was what I expected, but my wife commented that the styling was bland. I did some research and test drove the 2011 Sonata turbo. Never considered the Honda again. It took some time to get the car I wanted. I ended up buying it about 200 miles from home, but it was worth the trouble. It is quick, nimble, and satisfied my wife's style requirement, not to mention at considerably less expense than the Accord. The only cons so far is that the satelite radio seems more prone to loosing signal than on prior cars, and visibility, when backing up, it somewhat limited. The long term reliability is a question; time will tell.
