"I just bought a 2013-Limited. (No nav. or back-up camera, but every seat is leather and HEATED... much wow!)
The great things about this car are: its style, comfort, SAFETY (that's a huge one for me), overall price, and features. No complaints with those topics.
However, I've noticed that the gas mileage is much lower than Hyundai promised. I mainly drive the city streets of Chicago, but I definitely don't come close to 28MPG as the low. More like 21-24MPG average on the low end, in reality, when driving in the city. And about 29MPG average on the high end on the highway.
Another hiccup with this car is that I too find myself fish-tailing slightly with barely any reason... a lot! I may have only had this car for 2 weeks, but I seem to only feel the bad things when driving, like fish-tailing, sliding, my ABS going off a lot, etc. (I don't hear the road loud like a lot of others are saying about this car. And the ride is extremely smooth, to me.)
Over all, I'm happy with a lot of the features, the style, and safety of this car, but I'm concerned for what the future holds for me. I just don't want to go through engine problems (constantly) like I did with my last car.
BTW - If you get snow/ice in the rims of this car, GET IT OUT IMMEDIATELY! Like, before you drive! Or you'll have to bring your car in to get the tires realigned and rebalanced like I did after only owning the car for a few days! (This car has a new style of rims in the market... I know all the details, and don't want to bore anyone, just trust me.)"
