The Sonata hybrid is nowhere close to what it's advertised to be. Very, very poor mileage after 12,000 miles e.g. city 19 hwy 22. The hybrid system Hyundai adopted was long ago rejected by Toyota as "albeit cheaper but not reliable."
What makes matters worse, Hyundai WILL NOT stand behind any of their vehicles - their answer is always "we're working on it." Safety: this car stalls a lot; I mean once a week something happens with the engine/battery switch and it just stalls without warning. Hyundai's response: "just keep driving it until we can figure out what's going on. It's been almost one year and this car, along with Hyundai, has been nothing short of a nightmare.
Stay well away from the Hyundai Sonata Hybrid - total failure
Decent car for the price, better for you if you are a highway commuter
Foremost for the gas mileage, although I have come to realize the advantage of the hybrid motor in the Hyundai is highway not local. I had a Pruis prior to this car and got amazing gas mileage driving locally but the car was teeny tiny. The Sonata is much (MUCH) more comfortable than the Prius, but I gave up gas savings to get it.
Great car; full of features at a great price!

Car has all the features I wanted including leather seats,navigation system, and heated seating. and most important to me is the lumbar support. Car is comfortable to drive long distances and there is plenty of space for the rear seat passengers.
Gas mileage is very good with 35-40 MPG average.
