Why the 2012 Hyundai Sonata?

Powertrain performance

I have 54K miles on my 2012 Sonata Limited. Have not had any issues at all with this car. Keep the oil changed "Mobil 1 synthetic" everything runs just fine. Can't say anything jumps out asamazing or anything. This is just an easy car to drive & live with. I drive about 90 miles a day, commuting to work & back. My only let down with this car is the gas mileage. Generally get about 30 MPG, it was listed at 35 highway. I was comparing the Sonata with the Ford Fusion, drove both & they were so close in all the things I was looking for, I finally let the gas mileage be the tie breaker. But in reality, the Fusion "real world" gas mileage is about the same. But with all things said I have no regrets buying the Sonata Limited. Hope to keep it for at least 3 more years & can't see any reason why it won't hold up easily for at least 200K miles.

Why Not the 2012 Hyundai Sonata?

Front seat support & comfort

Have the Limited with leather heated seats. They are not as comfortable as expected. The seat bolsters are a little tight for my back side.


Great commuter car to put lots of mileage on. If you are looking for a "Drivers car" this is probably not it.
