Pros: "Good price, great to drive"

Cons: "No cooling seats or air conditioner vents in back."

Likely to recommend this car? (1-10): 9

"Overall the car is fantastic. Only 2 things I would like to see in the Hybrid Limited, 1. add cooling seats and 2. add the air conditioner vents for the back passengers."

A good, solid, reliable car for the money.

Pros: "Great size for a couple, decent trunk space."

Cons: "Sound system. Disappointing mileage."

Likely to recommend this car? (1-10): 7

"Does not get near the mfg. claimed mileage. Standard radio not that great as far as holding a signal, and the sound system is below average. Seats are a bit hard. Not the most comfortable car for long trips. But, low cost to operate and dependable. Great for around town and trips less than 300 miles. Drives and handles well. I added extended warranties to the purchase price as I expect to keep vehicle for 12-14 years. So far, so good."

Pros: "Looks"

Cons: "Mpg, poor hybrid transition."

Likely to recommend this car? (1-10): 2

"The best mileage I can get is 38 mpg on the highway and combined is 36mpg. I am a conservative driver. The mpg I have stated is driving the speed limit which varies from 60 mph to 70 mph. I also used the cruise control which has difficulty holding speed on hilly roads. The switch between engine and electric motor on hills at slower speeds can cause the car to feel like you are in car that is a manual transmition and the driver is learning how to drive it. (Very jerky). The car is jerky first thing in the morning no matter if it is cold or warm outside. At highway speeds the transfer between electric and engine are not noticeable. I have driven several hybrids and would recommend the Honda Accord. They have it down to a science."

Pros: "Reliability, ease of use, gas saver, daily driver"

Cons: "Seating; Azera seats much better."

Likely to recommend this car? (1-10): 10

"Economic and super comfortable to drive. Not overwhelming in the bottons/easy to use for anyone/touch screen and camera ergonomic and efficient. Most important is the warranty and beyond that is the service rendered while servicing. For example, it's had three flats (Corpus Christi streets) and 1 windshield replacement and not once did any service rep. complain or placed me on the back burner. Once completed, I drove away without paying one cent. Can't beat that anywhere. If reliability had a face i would venture to say any Hyundai but can only speak for the Sonata Limited 2.0t. it would be a great first car new or used."
