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
wonderful car at a great price
2012 Hyundai Sonata Hybridmelvin Lee - baltimore, Maryland08/15/2018
This is my first Hybrid and I promise I am Hybrid forever. The car rides smooth, and is silent as a mouse. Standing outside of the car you wouldn't even know the car has been turned on unless the AC or heat is turned all the way up.. The car is very roomy and spacious for families (although I don't have kids).. To be quite honest, compared to other hybrids in its' class the gas mileage isn't so great.. Don't get me wrong its not BAD, but not great for a HYBRID. Stylish nonetheless. If you want the Hybrid for the look I would recommend but if your really looking for gas mileage you should save your money and get a regular Sonata, the gas mileage is about the same...
