About Hyundai Sonata Plug-in Hybrid

The midsize-sedan market is possibly the most competitive in the U.S. Not only do you have the Honda Accord and Toyota Camry, pretty much everything else is at least a solid player, like the Ford Fusion, Chevy Malibu, Nissan Altima and our Best Buy winner, the Kia Optima. So it's no small feat that the 2017 Hyundai Sonata stands out from this distinguished crowd. Credit the choice of naturally aspirated, turbocharged, hybrid and plug-in drivetrains; conservatively handsome styling, the latest in high-tech, and a comfortable and quiet driving environment. This year, Apple CarPlay is part of the technology, and the base Sonata even gets a $150 price reduction, making it the least expensive car in its class.

"(1) It broke down on the highway about 3 weeks ago 90 miles from home and is still in the shop for a hybrid system failure. They said there was another one their for the same/similar problem. At least it is under warranty and they are paying for the rental car. (2) Prior to that it was in Hyundai Service 11-13 times for the check engine light on. Hyundai service could not figure it out repeatedly, but reset the light. They tried to blame me several times, saying there must be something wrong with my home charger, which was professionally installed for about 1500 and another 150 to have it checked by another electrician. My impression is that this is their first plug-in hybrid and have not worked out the bugs."
