    I've always liked Hyundai, but mainstream large sedans are for faggots.

    If what i have heard is true, as far as it having a 190 hp 4 cylinder that delivers 35 mpg highway, then I am very impressed.

    You gotta remember how much you are paying for a top model Camry or Accord vs a Sonata.

    I wouldn't buy a NEW one, but a used one could be a great deal. Heavily depreciated Genesis FTW?

    Whenever I rent cars I usually ask for a Sonata.

    Great Cars for what they are.

    4 speed, but it will get 25+ mpg highway still

    you'll get 10L/100km , whatever that is in MPG on most long trips
